Empires are controlled from three main views: the Campaign Map shows the entire game world, including mountains, forests, coastlines, oceans, rivers, cites, and armies. The City Map gives players an overview of the structure and role of a city within the empire, and provides a basis for economic decisions. The Battle Map is to be used when diplomacy has run its course or when a city is being attacked, resulting in turn-based combat.

The game is graphically rich with fast paced addictive gameplay. It is ideal for newcomers to the turn based strategy game genre.

Good mid level Game


I'm not a hardcore gamer so for me this fits nicely in between the simplicity of Risk and complex games requiring one to drop a college class to make time for it. It is higher than Risk because you have to make decisions about which military or commercial buildings to buy, or pay off other nations to keep peace, and when you fight you must tactically decide which units attack based on their offensive/defensive strengths, as well as terrain which affects those.

Too Basics


Not worth $5. Should be sold as a $0.99 game. No real depth. Static graphics. Limited replay value. Basic technology tree. Basic combat. Basic city building units. Small maps. Polished finish but very little to the game. Many $1 games of this type offer more. Save your money and look elsewhere. Reviewed by a mature ( in age) gamer.

Not bad if you don't want to think too hard

Cal bro

But the game is quite basic and crashes constantly.
