Land of Empires Review 2022: Is it good?

Land of Empires Review 2022: Is it good?

Land of Empires: Immortal is a brand new strategy game on mobile with promising graphic. The game seems to be a city builder primary and a side RPG as a secondary game at first sight, without wasting any more of your time, let’s check if that is true.

What is the Story of Land of Empires?

The demons are attacking!
The war between the forces of light and darkness has raged on for a millennium and spilled over into the mortal realms.
The demons have returned to wreak havoc on humanity. Cities had been falling with numerous lives eking out a living. The land is in desperate need of a savior.
It’s your time to shine. Lead the survivors, forge them into an army, defeat the demons, reclaim lost lands, rebuild fallen cities, and restore the glory of humanity.

How is the Game play of Land of Empires?

The game starts with an emergency message about the dead army roaming the land. You continue the dialogue and takes control of El-Cid that will help you go through the tutorial. The tutorial switch between dialog and combat, in order to advance you will need to defeat the enemy waves. To help you advance, they will offer you some assistance of a legendary hero: Valkyrie. Your heroes will fight in auto battle, so you just need to watch the show for now. Once you cleared all the waves, a little animation will play about the situation of the land.

City Builder

After the video, you will now switch to city builder mode and this is the second part of the tutorial will start. Be ready to be used to switch between dialogue and performing an action. Learn to build, upgrade, collect resources, liberate lands, free villagers, expand your territory until the tutorial is completely over. If you manage to finish all of them, then congratulations you are now in the real game with a shield on your city.

From now everything is rather straight forward, be used to switch between inside and outside your settlement for the rest of your game play as most of the action gonna require you to do so. Inside your settlement, you will be building and upgrading your buildings, researching new technologies, training troops, upgrading your dragon, leveling and upgrading your heroes. Let’s not forget to upgrade your heroes gear and troop formation, drawing the daily summons and collecting daily free stamina.

Outside your settlement, you will see an open world in landscape. Everything from players to enemies show up on the map, you can also see your own city too. As all city builder, you will need different resources to train troops or to build and upgrade buildings. So this is where you can send our troops to collect them on specific mines. You can also attack undead troops roaming around but be careful not trying to fight high level ones. The game normally give you an indication if your are going to win or lose a battle. You can also attack other player but i would strongly advice to avoid making enemy at the start of the game.

Hero Battle

If you remember about the tutorial part with El-Cid at the start, you might be happy as you will have a mode for it. Select between 3 heroes of each class which is Infantry, Archery and Cavalry. Once you selected your heroes, you can move them either in the back or front position depending on their ability. You can now start the battle where your heroes will run through a path and fight waves of enemies. Note that your hero will charge up a bar during battle and will activate a powerful skill when it’s full. The last wave will normally have a boss at the end, it will have similar ability as your heroes. A charge up skill that will kill all your heroes easily if not deal quickly, so be careful.


At some point, you will have access to control an army of each category under each heroes. Here you will select your 3 heroes of each category, then select the number of soldier for each category and let’s not forget your dragon. The amount of soldier will depend on your heroes and technology level. Each category will have strength and weaknesses, so better but a balanced army for each category at the start. Now you can start the battle, you will see your heroes and army fighting against another army and heroes. Sadly you can’t change or control the on going battle, you will need to just watch 2 computer fighting each other.

Stealth battle

Land of Empire has another mode where you control only 1 hero on a small map. The map will have sentry guard with a range of sight which you need to avoid and sometime you will need to kill them in order to move forward. To kill a guard you will need to get behind them and you will see a button pop up that will trigger an animation of a take down. You can also hide in the wheat field or wait to ambush the guard. The mission is to save some prisoners at the end of the map, avoid sounding the alarm and try to sneak away as best as you can. If your familiar with Commando or Splinter Cell game, the mission should be pretty easy to complete.


As usual here a list of things that will appear on your game which are important, here’s a brief description of them.

  • Quests – Daily, Research and Achievement quests are here
  • Alliance – Donation, Alliance Tech, Help, Events are here
  • Hero – Upgrade, level up and unlock your heroes here
  • Campaign – Complete the quests to know more on the story and obtain more rewards
  • Items – Your inventory
  • Mail – All message will be here
  • VIP – Collect or increase your VIP rank for daily rewards
  • Events – All your on going events should be here

What type of Graphic does Land of Empires use?

Land of Empires is in a full 3D graphic, the game looks awesome in all the available modes. Beautiful both inside and outside the settlement, the heroes look well detailed, combat animation looks cool. Heroes are animated, that even the jiggle physics of the female might make you stare for some seconds. Clean interface with straight forward action button that triggers when need in some game mode. Skins for city and troops looks good too if those matter to you. You can see a good amount of detail on the world map including animals and plants, troops marching, etc.

How is the Controls in Land of Empires?

I think it’s the elephant in the room, control is not the forte of Land of Empire. Beside selecting an army, heroes and dragon to collect resources or attacking enemies. All the battle are on auto battle which mean you have little to no control at all once you send your troop away. In hero battle, the thing applies, you cannot change formation or position of your heroes during waves once battle has started. You just watch the AI battle, in the end making the game seems like a simulation where all you do is tap one button and watch.

Sound & Music

In terms of music, Land of Empires have different background music for each game mode. The music is going to be on auto repeat for your entire game play, so muting the game won’t change much your play through. Part of the story does have some voice acting but it’s another game where they either run out of budget or simply time to do so for the whole game. Heroes does have some lines which they use when using their skills. The sound effect are good, no complain here.

What is the Game Length of Land of Empires?

Land of empires is a city builder, making it one of the most time consuming game at the start but things will gradually change to a passive game later on. The daily takes around 30 min to complete which is great. But in order to progress faster, you may need to do more than daily quests. You will need some dedication and time to be able to keep up with the events to have a decent progression. Events duration may vary from hours to some minutes, while other are only simple trivial quests of you playing the game normally like collecting resources or training troops. Progression will slow down later where things will start taking weeks to upgrade.

Is Land of Empire Free to play?

Land of Empires is F2P, you will have access to the complete game with enough resources to progress steadily. However the game is not that F2P in terms of events and accessibility for some heroes and dragon. Events are very hard to complete as F2P meaning you will have less reward and have a slow progression overall. By the time you will manage to catch up to cash player, the game would have already have new content and cash upgrades.

Is Land of Empire Pay to win?

It’s no surprise that Land of Empires is very P2W. The game scale tilt towards players who spend the most, to advance faster and become stronger you will need to spend money. Events are mostly a battle of wallets instead of wits and strategy, they are mostly reserved for cash players as most of the time quests will favor those who are willing to spend some money on the game. Some heroes, skins, frames and dragon is exclusively obtainable via cash and they do give you additional bonus stats. Also the VIP system will always indicate if the game going to be F2P or P2W.


No ads.


The cash shop will have multiple packages like monthly, weekly, VIP, dragon, heroes and gems for all type of spenders. Price will vary between $0.99 to $99.99 which is the typical price of packages for a mobile game. But spenders should be careful as many packages are not worth your money and as always keep an eye on the amount you will spend. Many of these packages don’t have a limit, so you may end up spending more than you would want at the end of the month. Note the presence of random reward system via a gacha system which is consider gambling as you are not guaranty to obtain the best reward unless you spend a lot of money. So as usual be careful when your spending or your children is spending on these packages.

What is the Life span of Land of Empire?

Land of Empires is a solid city builder game with competition as it’s main foundation to keep the player interested. Whether your a passive player who plays time to time or a hardcore gamer who is online all day, the game gives you the choice to choose your pace. Good graphic, events and diverse heroes make the game more interesting, thus making a good player base easily for long and short term. The game should be fine for some years if they continue to deliver fair events and new contents.


Without a doubt the game promotes quick thinking and formulating strategies but that isn’t entirely the truth if you are not fighting against opponent with equal power. So it is not really has the same benefits as your classic RTS games but has close enough for you to have some fun. Communication skill will greatly improve special for clan managers. Command and communicate to an efficient manner with members of different languages, become better than any Human resources in real life! Learn things like survival of the fittest or united you stand and divided you fall.





  • Make all items in the game available for F2P
  • Change the quests in event that require you to spend to complete the last 10% of the event
  • Make the other dragon not cash exclusive
  • More control in battle mode
  • Allow change in formation between waves
  • Put some bonus for using a group of heroes, else other would become useless
  • Increase the rate of legendary fragment in gacha
  • Better rewards in events
  • Easier way to obtain Shield after been attacked


They have on going events ongoing nearly every day and week. They even have a calendar for you to keep up with the list of incoming events. They always announce in advance changes and fixes in the coming updates and does communicate every bit of change in the game.

Should you play Land of Empire?

Land of Empires is a solid game with good graphic, good amount of content, good player base and is a good alternative to other more popular city builder like Rise of kingdoms. For the answer i would say Yes but it will largely depend on what server your going to start playing and what type of player you will encounter. The answer would be a big Yes if your going to spend. The game rewards you enough for your money spend and let you enjoy the game at it’s fullest.

If your F2P, tread carefully or stay away from these type of games. As F2P has little benefits, a slow progression and will be in disadvantage at all stage of the game. Beside the never ending war between F2P and P2W, the game is almost a carbon copy of all other city builder. Same type of events, heroes, upgrade system and even game play except the sneak mission in the tutorial part. The other battle mode sucks as they are all in auto battle which in the end make you just tap the play button and watch the AI fight. So how is that call playing the game? Thank you for reading till the end, i will see you on another review.

Evony Review(The King’s Return) why so popular or infamous?

Evony Review(The King’s Return) why so popular or infamous?

In this Evony review, we will check how good is the mobile version of the game. Without losing a minute let’s dive in.


The classic story of you being the chosen King that will bring salvation to your empire. A beautiful lady will be guiding you and with help of the generals in those difficult tasks. As for now only hard work awaits you. Build your city, control an army, research more knowledge and gather more treasures.

How is the Game play?

After a little tutorial, you will get a grasp of what’s waiting for you. They will make you do some challenging puzzle during the tutorial.

Evony: The King’s Return is a Real Time Strategy where you need to manage everything. The game revolves around developing your city while maintaining your army and resources all together. Which require some micromanagement skill from you.


The most important building is your Keep, it will show the level of the city to other players. As it level up option will be given including access to new buildings and units. Buildings have different uses and purposes. For example the academy will let you do research on farming faster. Each building have it’s own description. But remember that most buildings are normally locked behind your keep’s level.


You will need to recruit and train an army to be able to conquer and defend your city. Training them also require resources as they do eat and drink too. All activity outside your city require an army, so those units are your lifeline. You can also send your troops to attack monsters, bosses and bandits or send them to collect resources on mines. Mines will have different type of resources, they have different level which determine how much resources are available inside them.


Real Time Strategy does not have TIME in it’s name for nothing. If you can manage your time perfectly, you will have an overwhelming advantage against someone who is doing badly. Each minute lost in not building, training or collecting resource may set you back. As the game advances building and research take more and more time to be completed from days to months.

In other games, you will have to wait in front of your screen with nothing to do. But not in Evony: The King’s Return as they keep you busy with those puzzles.


The puzzles are rather intuitive, pulling a level to trigger an action. Try to get the correct order and timing, example: rock falls on Monster and it will die. The game does not punish you for failing as you have unlimited retry with no time limit. Their is around 300 puzzle currently waiting for you in game so be ready. Unfortunately you won’t have access to all of those puzzles, they are tightly locked behind your keep level.

Hero and Gear

Another part of the game is having a collection of heroes. Recruit popular war generals and equip them with gears. These guys will lead your army and give them buffs in battle. Gears can be crafted later so i will it to you to discover more about them.

How about the Graphic?

The graphic is a simple 2D, yet with enough details to make you keep watching. It does look a bit outdated as the game wants to keep the look a classics RTS games on webpages. It may not compete with 3D graphic game of today but every animation and arts are beautiful.

How is the Controls?

Let’s say 100% of the time, you will be tapping the screen to select and collect something. So it’s not really applicable here.

Sound and Music

Epic background music, they change the track according to your screen. Each civilization have their own music which is really cool. They even stop the music during the puzzle to help you concentrate on solving it. The sound effects are also good, part the tutorial has a voice acting which make the game even more immersive.

How long is the game?

From 15 min to 10 hours per day. All RTS game require an important amount of time early on but later on things will calm down.

Free to play or Pay to win

F2P but very P2W, the game has a very bad ecosystem. During my Evony review, i found a large amount of unfair packages that boost spenders. A boost so important that free to play will not reach until a month of progress.

RTS games are suppose to be about the management of time and resources. But those package violate those rules and changes the game completely into another type of game. A game of comparing wealth and nothing else.

Dumping the strategy part just to grab more money is not a wise choice. Disabling the in-app purchase is a solution if everyone apply this rule, then you will get a health ecosystem.

The game is doom like many other mobile RTS. All the free to play leave the game, only some cash player will stay to maintain a dead game.

Micro Transaction

The cash shop is where you can buy diamonds, membership package and other type of packages to help growing faster. The price vary between $0.99 to $99.99 per item. They do have a VIP system, when activated gives you some buffs.

The game does not show how many level of VIP. They do offer limited time packages which only last for a short period but have very interesting discount.

Life span

RTS game have long life span as they require time and resources to achieve the end game. Keeping evolving the game will keep player in the game even with P2W features.

You do have a daily named as “Activity” and also a daily log in reward. Server reward or event rewards are awarded when you stay in game, finally you do have achievements with decent rewards.


You will definitely learn a bit of strategy, time management, resource management, troop management, multitasking, communication and cooperation. Even some research on google to know how to beat another player.

Learn how to live with others or waste your time wagging war with your neighbors for some resources. When to retreat and when to attack, overall is a complete classic strategy text book that you will learn.


No official discord but most of the discord will be alliance discord where they share their though and strategy. They have an official


  • Make another method for free player to obtain VIP points.
  • Show all the level of VIP available.
  • Too many things in game are gated by diamonds, make alternate methods for free to play player to compete fairly.
  • Puzzle reward should reset once per month with of course different reward for each month.
  • Cluster those time package on single logo because they take a lot of space on the screen.


Updates are regular so that you have content every week.

Should you play?

Yes, Evony the king’s return offer a unique trait compare to the other RTS games. Introducing a Puzzle game inside a RTS is simply genius. No ads, classic strategy game on webpage ported to mobile correctly. Only downside is the VIP and Cash shop which ruins a bit the whole genre of strategy games. Don’t let the old graphic fool you, the game is well rounded for a mobile game. Try playing it, get in an alliance and meet some other people around the world.
