You enjoy a week’s protection from attacks from other real players under the condition that you don’t initiate war against others. You can attack NPC castles though for XP and loot, only that these battles don’t involve any strategic planning or risk of casualty, since you only have one or two unit types to dispatch and you always win. Different from most strategy games, these NPC bandit baron castles grow to high levels with your own, or to be more exact, grow stronger with your every around of attack. In another word, you attack a Lv.1 NPC castle to level it to Lv. 2, and you can’t attack it again within three hours’ cool down time. So you have to “create” the high-leveled NPC enemies instead of having differently leveled ones around. In this way, the gameplay is once more slowed down, since you can complete the attack mission only when the NPC castle reaches the required levels and finishes the cool down time. To pile on, the travel time dispatched troops take to arrive at destination also gets longer with level up. In the world map, you just see the troop snail forward and then back, with no combat scene visible.

Mouse to control the game.
After a simple registration, you are ushered into this virtual world back set in medieval times. A castle built with wood and stone is located in the center of the woods, with flags waving in wind; various trees, stones and wheat fields can be seen around; and residents walk about among different buildings and also travel in and out of castle to collect food or hack stones. All is depicted similar to scenes in a picture book, colorful and cartoony.
The tutorial takes you through the process of constructing a barracks and attacking an enemy castle. Once done, you are granted your own castle, initially small and almost empty, where you start the life of a knight lord. Construct a series of structures, generate resources and collect gold coins as taxes, expand the castle to accommodate more facilities, and lead your army to conquer NPC castles around.
In the beginning, big arrows will constantly pop up to guide you through the basics, and the quest line continues to direct you to the next move in the game.
Goodgame Empire presents an enjoyable gameplay that is far better than lots of other strategy titles out there in final edition. It presents solid mechanics that incorporates the fresh elements into strategy staples, and depicts a stylish world with vivid animation and hand-drawn graphics. It’s really worth a try.
