StormFall: Age of War is a browser-based strategy MMO similar to Travian. Players enter the war-stricken world of Darkshine and perpetuate the chaos by waging war against other players. StormFall has the player start in an empty, barren field and fill up the city with buildings. Players are guided by quests that introduce the game’s mechanics; the quests are presented by a rather witty, well-voiced character, and players are given an abundance of the game’s premium currency, Sapphires, for completing them. The usual elements—researching new technologies and unit types, as well as fighting other players in abstract, non-controllable battles—of such strategy games are found in abundance here as well. The premium currency doesn’t mess with StormFall’s flow: many premium items are level-locked so no one can get too far ahead just by paying; furthermore, Sapphires can be acquired by subscribing to useful services like Netflix. StormFall doesn’t seem to quite hit the mark in terms of its visual presentation, and the music integration is frankly bizarre as soundtracks change as you go from one menu to the next, but still there’s good reason to believe that many will enjoy this already quite popular strategy game.
