Rise of Civilizations is a fun empire-building game that follows the formula of many of these successful games, now available to download as an apk. Based roughly on the popular Sid Meier Civilization series, this game is one of the most popular on the app store.
Build your kingdom now
You start out with the biggest and hardest choice of the whole game – which civilization will you lead to greatness?
You can choose from 7 different civilizations from the aeons of history: Rome, Germany, Britain, France, Spain, China, Japan and Korea. Each civilization has different abilities and special units that you can unlock as you progress in the game. The art style is reminiscent of the cartoon approach taken by Civ 6, but now you can play this game totally for free on your Android device with an APK download.
Despite the games typical pay-to-win structure, there is a lot of fun to be had and the developers do pay keen attention to people’s comments.
Here are some of the coolest, most innovative features of Rise of Civilizations:
There are real-time battles. That’s something even Civilization hasn’t cracked yet. This means the action is fast-paced and intense, plus you can jump in and out of battles. If you see someone attacking your ally on the campaign map you can quickly jump in with your troops and save the day…awesome!
One of the coolest parts of RoC is that the map starts out totally unexplored. You must send scouts out on missions to discover your newly settled land. There are all sorts of cool spots to check out dotted across the map, including tribal villages, mysterious ruins and scary barbarian camps! Make sure you figure out where you are in the world so you can start to send out military expeditions.
The movement of your troops is not restricted
This is one of the things that sets Rise of Civilizations apart from other games of this type. You can send out multiple troops across the battlefield to capture different important locations, send out disruptive fake attacks, and clear up the map of nasty barbarians while you’re at it. Different armies will be controlled by different commanders making your forces easy to organize and control.
A game like Rise of Civilizations would be nothing without a multiplayer feature. This is the way you establish different alliances in the game, thus strengthening your position in the world. There are all kinds of cool functions, like in-game chat, the opportunity to promote players to officers within the alliance, and the chance to expand your alliance’s borders to take over the world! There are key locations on the map to secure, like mountain passes, valuable resources and important strategic locations.
Use real-life commanders from history
These RPG Commanders are taken from all different parts of history, such as Julius Caesar and Genghis Khan! Level up your army leaders by sending your troops into battle against barbarians…and winning, of course!
