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.

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.

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.

Panzer General Online (WWW)
An online strategy game which is a browser-based version of the cult Panzer General series. It was developed by Blue Byte Software. The action takes place during World War II although the production's approach to the subject is far from realistic. In Panzer General Online, we participate in turn-based battles that, even though inspired by historical ones, are quite loosely based on actual events. The game offers both a single player campaign and a multiplayer mode. Combat is turn-based, which is characteristic of the series, and apart from infantry, we can command armored forces, air force, and many other units. The title is enriched with elements of collectible card games — while playing, the players have to collect cards that symbolize units and construct their own decks that are then used in subsequent battles.

In the game one has to obtain raw materials, erect new structures, tend to citizens’ needs, discover and colonize new territories, invent new architectural and military technologies, and finally, recruit an army to ensure peace and security over the empire. As New World Empires is an MMO game, the players should consider forming alliances with other states.

Moreover, the players can also find out whether their states have been infiltrated by opposing factions.
