City of Wonder is a simulation game developed by Playdom and played on Facebook where you can create prosperous civilizations which will let you progress through the ages while researching various technologies.
You start with a primitive village and build it into a great civilization by researching technologies and gaining access to more buildings.
In City of Wonder you gain experience by cleaning their buildings, adding to their population and researching technologies. By researching specific technologies, they can unlock buildings connected to them. For example, by researching science you can open up a laboratory and after researching agriculture players can build a farm.
As you gain population and technologies, you move up the evolutionary ladder. Cultural buildings equate to a happier community. Military buildings mean more defense against attackers and chances of successfully invading other communities. Increasing the number of markets leads to higher income.
As you start developing you will need to expand your territory, you do this by spending gold, which is earned through leveling or paying real world money and by gaining more friends.This is only a small part of the social aspect of the game. Every friend can have an embassy on the player’s land and vice versa.
Constructing buildings and increasing the population takes time and you can speed up this process through the use of “legends”. Legends are famous mathematicians, leaders and scientists such a Socrates and Lenin that can decrease the construction time, increase population output or temporarily increase your city’s defense or aid in invasions. Legends can be gifted by friends or purchased using gold.
