The gameplay is very similar to other types of games that are on the market such as placing resource buildings, gathering all of your resources, building houses so that you are able to increase the population, building other types of useful buildings like the well and market then expand and repeat. The one thing that makes Anno Online so different is that the city layout is very important. Buildings will affect each other by either increasing or decreasing the population and productivity within the area they are in.
