Strategy 08 April 2015
A browser MMO strategy game from the creators of Tribal Wars. In Elvenar the player joins one of two sides of conflict: humans or elves, and strives to build a prospering metropolis. Each of the two races uses different technologies and offers unique architecture, units, and a bit different gameplay philosophy. For example, elves live in harmony with nature, practice magic and coexist with other fantasy creatures, whereas humans are more of ambitious engineers, who use medieval weapons and technology. The foundation of gameplay is to provide your settlement with wealth and security as well as transform it into a big metropolis. To this end you have to produce food and collect resources, expand buildings, and recruit a strong army that would fight your battles and allow you to explore new territories. In Elvenar you can focus on story-based campaign missions or interact with other players: establish alliances, trade or wage wars with them. Battles are fought in a turn-based system on hexagonal fields. Elvenar stands out from similar games with impressive 3D visuals and high-quality graphics.

Unlike the other browser games, Might & Magic: Heroes Online's visuals are on rather high level, and not far behind what can be seen in the series' main games.

Arcade 16 April 2016
Another free-to-play game developed by the creator of Agar.io – a minimalistic action game developed for mobile devices and Internet browsers. In contrast to its predecessor, in Diep.io the player doesn’t control a ball, but a small tank in which he fights other players over points. The vehicle can move in all directions and the cannon is controlled independently from the rest of the machine. The gameplay focuses on sending missiles at colorful figures appearing on the map. Destroying them is awarded with experience points used for upgrading the tank with health regeneration, increased projectile speed and greater power. It all becomes especially useful when fighting other players that are present on the same map. Except for obtaining the highest possible score and staying alive for as long as possible, the game doesn’t have any additional objectives. The visuals of Diep.io are minimalistic – the tanks are simply colorful balls with rectangle cannons and the map looks like a piece of paper from a notebook.

The game focuses mostly on PvP mode in which the player fights other players. The combat system is very action based – reflex and a good tactical sense are required for victory. Later in the game the player also participates in giant battles and sieges of strongholds, the conquering of which provides access to resources and tax income.
