Almost everyone plays games online these days. Choosing a game that is fun and not time-consuming that contains a high level of enjoyment for users world-wide narrows the playing field, especially is that game is free to play.
Realm Of Empires (RoE) is a medieval-themed Massively Multiplayer Online Real-Time Strategy Game - MMORTG.
RoE is a Facebook application, meaning you have to be a member of Facebook to be able to play. However, it is one of the best applications developed so far, and very addictive!
You start with a small village which you grow into a mighty fortress as you struggle for dominance of the realm playing with and against real people. Itís a game of diplomacy, strategy and war.
The game is intended to be played as little as just a few minutes per day, over many days, weeks and months as you make friends in a medieval world.
There are three Realms to date, each having differences in attributes of gameplay.
The game is suitable to varied playing styles, whether you want to be defensive, offensive, or a combination of both. You grow at the speed you wish to grow, and conquer other villages based on that style of play.
There are various troops to recruit: Citizen Militia, Infantry, Light Cavalry, Knights, Spies, Governors (needed to take over other villages) and Rams and Trebuchets for damaging walls, defensive towers and other village buildings.
The level of enjoyment is high, with the newest realm already having over 10,000 players. Realms 1 and 2 are still active and are still acquiring new players as well.
