The West

The West

There is a lot to romanticize about the pioneering era of the ‘wild west’; the technologies, the clothes, the culture, and of course, the kind of society that one attains when living in a world where the gun is the law. The West draws heavily upon these notions –between the interactions between the natives and the settlers, the establishment of trade, and even the sheer focus on the whole ‘duels at sundown’ shtick makes one feel as if the game is a little closer to a Hollywood reproduction than a historical game. History purists looking for Died of Dysentery levels of grit will want to pass off on this experience, but anyone else with a passion for the wild west but can also appreciate a touch of fancy will love the way this browser game plays.

Tribal Wars 2 Mobile Game

Tribal Wars 2 Mobile Game

If you are a mobile gamer who appreciates city building games but do not have much in terms of spare time, rejoice. Tribal Wars 2 is a medieval-era game that manages to be both interesting and fun and yet not too time-consuming. For a free to play title, that is already a lot to be happy about, but the fact that it does not put too much of an emphasis on premium currency or adds a paywall restricting mechanic makes it all the more enticing to play even at the later game stages.

Tribal Wars 2

Tribal Wars 2

There are dozens of online browser games that will allow you to manage a city, expand it, and socialize with other players, but none have the same idyllic and relaxing pace as Tribal Wars 2. Contrary to what the title says, this game is a lot less about wars and a whole lot about real-time work queues. While this will certainly not sit well with players who are used to a more fast-paced game, or those who would like a lot of progress on the first couple of hours of play, it actually makes Tribal Wars 2 extremely accessible to players who simply do not have much free time each day.

War Thunder

War Thunder

A large scale MMO like War Thunder relies heavily on fast paced combat and enjoyable action to be successful –and it delivers on both fronts. But more than just being a good game to play, War Thunder’s impressive lineup of planes is enough to send any history buff into an excited frenzy. The models are top notch and the textures look realistic –and the good stuff does not end at just extremely detailed planes.

Grepolis

Grepolis

Kingdom building game Grepolis is a free to play browser game with an in-depth gameplay that shows players how the ancient Greeks slowly built their cities and empires. It does take a very liberal approach in terms of historical accuracy with the inclusion of the Greek mythos in to the game, but the application of the content helps deepen the gameplay. Players are able to give tribute to and gain favors from the gods for various benefits to their in-game stats –all while balancing the limited number of active tasks that can be made available. Overall, Grepolis is a solid, ancient-Greece themed, city-management game that incorporates both combat and multiplayer elements seamlessly.
