Empire World is a trading-oriented strategy-simulation game from TRADEGAME Lab, the creator that made many solid simulation titles like the Air Tycoon and Hotel Tycoon series for iPhone and iPad.
Set in the medieval age Empire World is about the rising of 20 nations around the Mediterranean Sea. As usual, you start off with a small, shabby coastal city and strive to develop it into a prosperous and powerful kingdom with your great management skills.
City-building is the foundation. You need to firstly build the resource production facilities so as to harvest and store wood, coal, grain, etc. to support the construction/upgrading of other civil buildings. And the specialized production facilities can be only built at special locations like the coal/wood buildings beside a mountain. Since the original patch is limited in space and only with one side by mountains, expansion is a necessary path towards growth.
Compared with many of its contenders, Empire World is peaceful more focused on goods production and trading rather than military actions. Most buildings are for goods production. And your major task is to produce 70+ different merchandises to supply your residents keeping them well-fed, clothed and happy. If you run short of certain goods, you place your orders in the market; and if you have surplus, you sell them for profits. Trading in the market is more like bidding and conducted asynchronously. In addition, you can deliver/receive goods in real time with friends once you have obtained the merchant vessel.
For those craving for bloody business, you can choose you side-way to develop your kingdom and claim supremacy in the sea. The maritime battle comes late. You can sail off for war only when you’ve built the ship and loaded gunpowder to it. And it’s wise to join an alliance before you start to make enemies.
Empire World is a solid city-building and strategy game with decent graphics and jovial music tracks. Due to its trading-oriented gameplay, it is more suitable for merchant-style strategists and best enjoyed in short bursts of play. Download
