Another cross-platform social strategy game hits the Internet– Prime World. It combines city building, or in this case castle building, with an intensely competitive multiplayer battle arena. Players are rewarded for utilizing their social network strategically for game advancement. Play Prime World now online or on your mobile device.
You choose between two factions: the Dokht Imperium and the Keepers of Adornia.
The factions include a few differences in the availability of heroes, backstory, hero skins, and other stuff of that nature.
The storyline is narrated, which saves gamers from all of that reading (a definite plus); especially considering, the game is highly story and quest centered. The controls are simplistic; you use the mouse to move and the keyboard to activate abilities.
Fight your way down the lane, taking down towers, enemies, and ultimately the enemy’s nexus, um, I mean Lodge. Before the battle even takes place, you select the hero you wish to battle as. You gain levels by earing “prime”, instead of the usual “experience”, and as you gain levels you learn new abilities. As you run down the lane of battle, you won’t be able to see the entire lane due to “mist”, but when you approach an area the mist disappears. All of this sounds pretty familiar doesn’t it? So far in my experience, Prime World is a lot like League of Legends, but with some changes. To boost experience and other boosts, you can build different buildings on your property, which is where the city builder aspect comes in.
The graphics seem to have Asian influence, but that is not surprising considering Prime World was developed in Korea. It is a fairly detailed two-dimensional world. Once again I compare Prime World to League of Legends, the graphics look similar in several aspects; your point of view on the world is from overhead and the ground textures and avatar composition look strikingly similar to that of the insanely popular MOBA, League of Legends.
If you are looking for a game like league, that isn’t quite league, then Prime World is the place for you. The graphics are more serene, fading into the Asian themes. Overall, it is a pretty good game. I like the graphics, the heroes, and the emphasis on storyline. In League, the story line exists, but most people don’t have any idea what it is. If you are curious– or simply banned for life from league– check out Prime World, with it’s lower player base and less hostility due to the more casual feel, Prime World is a good addition to the MMO world.
