Overview of Buildings

In Age of Apes, there are functional buildings and decorations. Functional buildings provide utility to your base often in the form of military power (i.e., military camps) whereas decorations are cosmetic items to beautify your base. You can purchase functional buildings and decorations with three resources: Food, Iron, and Batteries. Let’s look at all the functional buildings you can build and what they can do.

Challenge quests consist of attacking elite mutants and siege operations. Sieges are unlocked when Colin reaches Level 6 and has you attacking a certain player’s city. Troops that you lose during a siege are converted into resources afterwards.
