“It's truly NOT a pay to win game” - ZAM

Turn the oceans red by waging bloody war across 38 tropical islands with new, changing sea conditions. Players must fight for a single kingly throne avoiding rough seas and the occasional hurricane as they attack, scout and trade across a medieval archipelago.

Conditions change daily with tail winds, rough seas and violent storms either slowing or accelerating the progress of attacks, trade ships and scouting parties as they move between islands. Attacking forces may catch a strong tailwind and obliterate their enemies in the blink of an eye. Traders can double their earnings in a single day by all casting off while conditions are favorable. Scouts on the other hand could be so heavily delayed by storms at sea that, upon returning home, find their actions have sparked a conflict that has destroyed their home!

Old strategies, routines and timed attacks will be rethought as players adjust to the changing pace of this new game world and fight for control of the high seas.


Join thousands of players online as you expand your medieval village and construct a mighty castle to protect it: farm peacefully, engage in political mind games, seek vengeance on your sworn enemies or lead your armies to glory across a map of medieval Europe. Rule as you desire and become a feudal Lord! Siege other players, battle AI opponents, research new weaponry, forge alliances in player Factions and fight for the eternal glory of your House.

Don’t waste your time or money


I have been playing this game since January, so 7 months give or take, and I would say this is the worst game I have played, even worse than the ones I planyed on my TRS80. It’s beyond slow, buying packs of useless cards get you nowhere, and the concept behind the game is awful. Example, I produce 25,000 stone a day or you can spend 4.99 to receive cards that give you 1000 stone?!?! Eveyday you play you get attacked constantly by the computer in hopes to get you to play more and pay more (attacks by the computer are required). In addition, even if you research the necessary levels to make peace with the computer (reduce war by 50%) it will send 5 to 10 more attacks during the day to offset the peace research. You can never get ahead in the game and the game play is beyond slow, but it could be my Internet I only have 125MB connection so who knows! It crashes consisently, it’s beyond not-user friendly, and the graphics are awful. Thank goodness I only invested like 5 bucks in the game - which I wish I would have spent that money on something that I enjoyed. The original game for the computer was great, had all the game fun that someone would want. No idea what they did with this game, it won’t take you long to figure out the purpose of this game - no fun just show them your wallet. I can’t figure out how this game even received a 2.5 star rating, does that include Firefly employee reviews?

So not worth the time.

So they took an arguably perfect campaign/build stand-alone and franchised it years ago… well, that was a cheesy thing to do, but it worked. Then years later they "app-ed" it to get it back on the market in a new format and it doesn't work; now they MMO-ed it and the greedy little publishers tried to turn it into a cash cow.

First off, the interface is NOT intuitive and the tutorial is nearly useless.
The campaign aspect requires a deep level of involvement that only a homeschooled teenager can muster.
I'm not sinking a fortune into a game to simulate research so I can play the game the way it should be played from the first click.
I can't figure (if it's actually possible) how to scroll out on village and castle views to actually SEE what should be OBVIOUS in the first place.
And WHY have they split the village development and the fortress development ANYWAY?

SO glad I didn't have to pay for this disappointing stroll down Not-the-way-it-was-in-Memory Lane.

Do you even test your software before releasing? A simple click on the castle button freezes the screen every time I try.

UI is designed for a phone, the buttons look ginormous on a computer screen.

Also, do you use the least efficient algorithms on purpose? It makes the fans start running like no other application. It’s like I’m rendering 4k video FFS! For the 2D graphics it has, the application uses a disproportionate amount of CPU power.
