  • I absolutely assume this app one of the best program I at all times used! => have a look at this webiste for Free Gift Cards : www.fregifts.com

  • Great game, essentially a free and open-source version of Age of Empires III. Its only limitation is that I think it should have an in-built demo mode to show beginners how to play the game effectively. Granted users can search for a video demo in YouTube, but still I think this would improve the game. Plus I also think that pressing the Esc key should pause the game, it's a popular keyboard shortcut for pausing games (e.g., it's used by OpenRA).

  • First, I'd like to say that this game could have potential, but in its current state, entirely too complicated. You spend more time on building, troop, and resource management than actually warring. Too many buildings produce units. Too many buildings with unknown purposes. Different units build different things. A few suggestions to make gameplay smoother/easier: 1. Designate one type of unit that can build ALL the things. Not females can build these things and males can build other things. 2. Reduce the number of buildings that produce units. Barracks, cavalry, artillery, and maybe keep the civic center to produce civilian units/builders. 3. Create a single place to research new technologies, rather than every single building needing to be researched individually. These three basic things I believe would improve game play dramatically and reduce complexity. Usability wise, the whole, demo, campaign, skirmish, sandbox selection needs a complete overhaul. I have no idea if what I'm selecting is what I'm actually playing half the time. Set the game mode first, then only show maps for that game mode. Make it simpler/easier. No reason why selecting a map needs to be so complicated.

  • A very high quality game, looks as good as any commercial game, but it's open source and free! The frame rate is very fast. It's not written in a slow language like java or C# which seems to be popular with a lot games nowadays.
