Infinite Realms is the next-gen strategy game on Facebook set in a science-fiction background. It redefines the experience strategy games are played. Players explore the universe and travel through galaxies on the mission of expanding their realms and protecting the Confederation.
Infinite Realms sets the example of new generation strategy games by its stunning graphics, exciting upbeat music, real-time interaction and many others aspects of the game. Interaction between players is elevated to a new level.
Infinite Realms is a real-time-strategy gameplay served with a science-fiction storyline surrounding you. As a galactic traveler, that must traverse many galaxies of space on your mission of expanding your own realm, and protecting a group known as the Confederation.
Strategy Gameplay Formula With A Science-fiction Theme: Infinite Realms takes the strategy gameplay formula used by Travian games and applies a sci-fi theme to it. So instead of trying to build farms to build your peasants, you’re generating food rations so you can feed your space peasants. The game’s visual design takes a lot of cues from popular sci-fi console games like Mass Effect, but the artwork is excellent and the game itself is beautiful to look at, full of visually distinct buildings and intricate animations. Even parts of the GUI are attractive.
A Science-fiction Game: As in most strategy games descended from Travian, you’re tasked with building up your resources, expanding your territory, and conquering both NPC foes and other players. Since Infinite Realms is a sci-fi game, you're basically trying to conquer a planet for your colonists to inhabit. Instead of the varying terrain types you see in Travian-like games, you have the option of conquering areas that improve production of particular resources. Where you have Knights in the Travian games, Infinite Realms gives you a Hero that you hire to lead vast sums of troops. In a nice touch, your Hero tends to warn you about the probable outcomes of battle before you initiate them.
Well-designed Quest Tree : To get you acquainted with the game, Infinite Realms offers you a long quest tree to complete. The quests are well-designed and offer substantial rewards. It's also easy to depart from the quests early in the game and start focusing on whatever part of the game you like best, whether it's buying and selling resources with other players or building up your Heroes into efficient killing machines. You can have your Heroes attack other players' settlements, but the usual “newb protection” rules apply until you've been playing the game for awhile.
Complex And Interesting Animations: Infinite Realms is loaded with complex and interesting animations for the main outpost map area. The planet surface and your mothership are depicted a bit more abstractly, but a stylish GUI makes up for this. One of the game's few major problems is that the GUI is relatively complicated. Achieving some things involves clicking tiny counterintuitive links or navigating through layers of menus. As with most social games that descend from Travian.
New Gameplay Mechanics: Most games that descend from Travian suffer from feeling a bit too identical, but Infinite Realms breaks that mold simply by dropping the medieval theme and adding in a few new gameplay mechanics that fit its sci-fi theme. The still art and the design of all the little buildings and ships really helps Infinite Realms capture a player's imagination. Players who like their Facebook titles simple should probably give this one a pass, but if you like strategy then Infinite Realms has a lot to offer. There's not many true sci-fi game.
Best Graphics: Infinite Realms has some of the best graphics from a game starting right out of the gate, and also offers real-time chat amongst players. The gameplay here is complex, as is normally the case in a real-time strategy game, where battles take place with, as the genre suggests, strategy, rather than just luck. However, the gameplay seems to be set up in such a way as to be friendly to those who are lacking in experience with the genre. All in all, Infinite Realms offers as much complexity from the game as you'd want. The game's graphics stand out in terms of the entire Facebook platform, and the gameplay is linear enough to start that you shouldn't become lost in simply trying to learn the mechanics of the game.
