NapWar is a free to play, browser-based MMORTS game that is based during the historic period of the Napoleonic Wars. NapWar takes place in 18th century Europe during a time of war and turmoil, you're assigned the task of restoring peace to your village and constructing an army to spread your ideals across all of Europe. NapWar is one of the most popular free to play MMORTS games on the internet, featuring thousands of registered and active players.
As is traditional with the MMORTS genre, players must have a multitude of skills in order to survive during the brutal Napoleonic War period. You will need all of your diplomatic skills to keep your villagers in check, the leadership of Napoleon himself to train your vast army and the trade skills to construct your vast empire using a variety of resources. NapWar features 3 different areas of play, your village, your fields and the world map.
Your village is the center of your production. These is where you construct various buildings that improve your village. There's dozens of available buildings, some of which allow you to build troops and other military units, while others are built to maintain the happiness of your villagers. Your village also acts as your diplomatic hub. Unlike other MMO RTS games, you don't simply recruit a commander and then go and pillage the continent, there's far more options available than that. You must recruit a variety of senior officers to manage various aspects of your campaign, such as voting for a village mayor which increases your resource gathering rate and reduces your construction times. Each senior officer has a unique set of stats, which means you'll have to choose your officers carefully, playing them to their strengths.
The fields and world map area works in a similar way to other MMORTS games, you construct your resource buildings in the field and use the world map to launch your aggressive military and trade campaigns. Combat is the main focus of the world map and NapWar provides a great combat system. You can choose from a variety of historically accurate combat strategies and launch your troops against thousands of other players or NPC controlled strongholds. You can then watch the battle unfold in real-time, with great graphics and high quality animations.
