Might & Magic: Heroes Online (WWW)
Strategy 30 September 2014
Might & Magic: Heroes Online is a browser game and a part of the highly popular strategic game series created in 1995 by Jon van Caneghem and New World Computing. The game was developed by Blue Byte Software, creators of The Settlers saga, responsible for the browser versions of various popular games (i.e. The Settlers, Anno, or Silent Hunter). In term of the plot, Heroes Online continues the story from the last two big games of the series. In the fantasy world of Ashan, two opposing factions fight for power. Each of them has an army made of skilled warriors of different races and classes. There are two basic aspects of gameplay: real time world exploration, where we also gather resources and recruit our army, and the turn-based tactical combats that take place on hexagonal battlefields. Unlike the other browser games, Might & Magic: Heroes Online visuals are on rather high level and not much behind what can be seen in the series' main games.

New characters are obtained in League of Angels II as rewards but they can be also bought for real money. The game offers many gameplay modes.

Tribal Wars 2 (WWW)
Strategy 02 September 2014
A browser MMO strategy game and a sequel to the popular production from Inno Games studio. Once again we are taken to a medieval setting, with our task being to build a small village and develop it to a size of a fortified town. This requires us to secure our access to resources and recruit strong army to raid or conquer enemy’s settlements. The core of the gameplay is the idea of players banding themselves into eponymous tribes, making waging war and expanding territory much easier. Game mechanics have remained unchanged, though visuals and user interface have been slightly improved. The developers also made sure to offer new structures to build (hospital, tavern, and monastery) and introduce two types of units. As its predecessor, the game is distributed using a free-to-play model, supported with microtranscations.
