Forge of Empires
InnoGames’ Forge of Empires is an MMORTS developed by InnoGames for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android that is based on early human civilizations. As you progress in game, so does time progress. Starting from the Stone Age and advancing all the way through the Oceanic Future, your empire advances through stages of history and sees new technological advances with each time period.
The main portion of the game takes place on your city map. As you make your way through different ages more buildings and decorations will become available, as well as an expanded building area. Players will have to spend their coins and supplies to create new buildings and choose a spot to place it. Buildings can also grow in size as time passes, reflecting the new standards and needs of more civilized ages. You’ll need to carefully plan out where you want your buildings if you want to ensure you have enough space for future buildings when you need them.
Another primary focus of the game is army management. Successful civilizations will need to expand, which can be done through trade or by force via combat. The five different types of units that can be used are: light units, ranged units, fast units, heavy units, and artillery units. Knowing what units to mix and match for different situations is key to winning battles. Battles themselves are fought in such a way that the defender is played by AI with predetermined troops. If you can manage to defeat the defender you will take over the sector they are guarding. You can only own a province once you take over all of its sectors.
Offering a single player campaign, as well PvP action, Forge of Empires gives players a unique gaming experience with the convenience of being a browser and mobile game. Build your empire and start taking over today!
