Realms of Rivalry 1.09
Realms of Rivalry is an online tactical rpg.
The game can be summarized as an online graphical turn-based strategy/rpg game where you can play short tactical skirmishes with 2-4 players in small random-generated game worlds. The game is free and can be played either as an applet or downloadable client.
The time-limited turns (30-90 secs) give the game a semi-realtime feel, and the game has sometimes been characterized as "chess on steroids".
Here are some key features of "Realms of Rivalry":
Â· Community friendly game lobby where you can chat with others and join realms.
Â· Up to 4 players simultaneously battling on the same realm.
Â· Players control teams of 3 characters: Warrior, Archer and Mage.

The game development has been very "test-driven" in the sense that the game quickly was made playable and that features and changes were added and removed continuously during development. This hopefully improves gameplay, but of course at the expense of dramatically increased development time.
Realms of rivalry was never intended to "soothe the masses", but were made entirely to match the game that we ourselves would like to play - something we have done for many, many hours :-) But of course, some of you might enjoy this game aswell, and that is why we decided to share it with you!.
