Might & Magic: Heroes Online (WWW)
Strategy 30 September 2014
Might & Magic: Heroes Online is a browser game and a part of the highly popular strategic game franchise created in 1995 by Jon van Caneghem and New World Computing. The game was developed by Blue Byte Software, creators of The Settlers saga, responsible for the browser versions of various popular games (i.e. The Settlers, Anno, or Silent Hunter). In terms of the plot, Heroes Online continues the story from the last two big games of the series. In the fantasy world of Ashan, two opposing factions fight for power. Each of them has an army made of skilled warriors of different races and classes. There are two basic aspects to the gameplay: real time world exploration, where we also gather resources and recruit our army, and the turn-based tactical battles that take place on hexagonal battlefields. Unlike the other browser games, Might & Magic: Heroes Online's visuals are on rather high level, and not far behind what can be seen in the series' main games.
Strategy 22 September 2017
An online browser MMO game by Polish studio Bloomga S.A. The game allows you to develop your own insular kingdom in a world, where things happen even when you're logged out. Even if your computer is turned off, the resources are still mined for, the shipyards keep building new ships, and the installations are built according to your orders. It also means that in every given moment your island may get attacked by another user, who hopes to steal some of your useful resources. To defend yourself against the invaders, you can attack them yourself, build fortifications, and ally yourself with others through trading and diplomacy. An important feature is the captain character and their special ship, which you can upgrade with the modifications you earn. Both the captain and your whole empire can level up, which allows you to allocate bonuses for them, according to your own development strategy.
Strategy 08 April 2015
A browser MMO strategy game from the creators of Tribal Wars. In Elvenar the player joins one of two sides of conflict: humans or elves, and strives to build a prospering metropolis. Each of the two races uses different technologies and offers unique architecture, units, and a bit different gameplay philosophy. For example, elves live in harmony with nature, practice magic and coexist with other fantasy creatures, whereas humans are more of ambitious engineers, who use medieval weapons and technology. The foundation of gameplay is to provide your settlement with wealth and security as well as transform it into a big metropolis. To this end you have to produce food and collect resources, expand buildings, and recruit a strong army that would fight your battles and allow you to explore new territories. In Elvenar you can focus on story-based campaign missions or interact with other players: establish alliances, trade or wage wars with them. Battles are fought in a turn-based system on hexagonal fields. Elvenar stands out from similar games with impressive 3D visuals and high-quality graphics.
Supremacy 1914 (WWW)
Strategy 06 September 2009
A free-to-play real-time strategy – Supremacy 1914 is a game set in the World War I available via web browsers. The game stands out in terms of its performance and attention to historical detail. A player assumes the role of a European country leader fighting for domination over the Old Continent. One’s task is to reasonably manage the country's resources, tend to economic growth, ensure high morale throughout the provinces, proceed with military development, create a strong army, and engage in territorial expansion. The key to victory lies in establishing diplomatic relations with other countries in order to create alliances and work for the common good. The gameplay mechanics feature high complexity, yet at the same time they maintain intuitive and simple controls. Most undertakings require a strategic approach. After starting an action, such as drafting units or erecting a structure, players have to wait as long as several days until for them to be completed. Because of that, the game does not take much of our time and does not obligate players to log in on a regular basis.
Tribal Wars 2 (WWW)
Strategy 02 September 2014
A browser MMO strategy game and a sequel to the popular production from Inno Games studio. Once again we are taken to a medieval setting, with our task being to build a small village and develop it to a size of a fortified town. This requires us to secure our access to resources and recruit strong army to raid or conquer enemy’s settlements. The core of the gameplay is the idea of players banding themselves into eponymous tribes, making waging war and expanding territory much easier. Game mechanics have remained unchanged, though visuals and user interface have been slightly improved. The developers also made sure to offer new structures to build (hospital, tavern, and monastery) and introduce two types of units. As its predecessor, the game is distributed using a free-to-play model, supported with microtranscations.
Star Trek: Alien Domain (WWW)
Another browser MMO game adaptation of the cult Star Trek TV series universe. The title was based on the newest canon of the series, although it features a completely new story. The plot takes place in a mysterious region of the universe called Fluidic Space, where the members of United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire again fight for influence. The players choose one of the factions and establish colonies, gather resources, develop their fleets, and conduct research. Like a proper MMO game, Star Trek: Alien Domain features much combat between the players, including one-on-one skirmishes, raids on the enemy outposts, and great battles between the rivaling factions. In the game you may see many iconic ships from the series and movies, but you also have an option to build your own vessels.
