Empires & Allies

  • Genre: strategy
  • Developer: Zynga
  • GD Star Rating

Empires & Allies is another crown jewel from Zynga, as soon as the game starts you can feel the Zynga touch, great graphic environment, cute characters, Farmville or Frontierville style and you are up to a great game already, you can feel it.
The game is set on a post war situation were your city has been attacked by enemies generals and you have to build your city from scratch, while defending it from enemy attacks.

You start the game with a well driven tutorial, first you are introduced to military building, nice touch by Zynga, as some might expect another city building game like CityVille. This game is also about city building, and about farming and about getting friends and so on… but on a more combat strategy orientation.
After4 building your first barracks, which require usually 3 steps (3 clicks), you train your first troops, after which you have your first fight, and have to defend yourself against enemy invasion. All this is done in such a natural, smooth and paced way, that you get the hang of it so fast…

Empires & Allies starts paced but with a good grip, as you advance you will notice that there is so much to do… and there a problem with that, it is the energy thing :), yes it will never be enough, from training combat units, to buildings, to farming and production you will have always something to do and the energy… you know the drill.

Talking about option, you have many types of building, 20 types of Housing building at start, 9 military buildings, 11 types of industry and farm related buildings, 9 different government buildings with various functionalities.
You also have to deal with energy and resources, from wood necessary to building houses, to more elaborate materials from oil, aluminum and copper to uranium all of them necessary for different things.
There are also Power-ups, roads, decorations etc. and of course expansions to your territory.

Well enough of bragging the game just head on and play it, in my opinion this can be the future of Facebook games and a new CityVille phenomena as social games go. Add to this the possibility to send 75 friend request at a time and its sure to grow fast!
