Vastwars is a free to play browser game developed and published by a firm of the same name and is a text based MMO strategy game that sees you delve into the criminal underworld. The game is a heady mix of RTS and RPG and sees you tasked with trying to become a big force when up against other players who are trying to achieve the same thing.
Vastwars certainly has a uniqueness about its gameplay, offers plenty of social features that allows players to interact with each other and is pretty much a very enjoyable gaming experience.
When you first create an account on Vastwars, you will be asked a series of questions, each having an affect on your character. You will first have to decide on which country you and your character wish to represent and then what of three different professions you wish to be. These professions will each have varying strengths and weaknesses so it is strongly advised that you take the time to do a little research on each of them before making your decision.
You have a choice between being a mobster, businessman or policeman, and again you should remember that each will have their upsides and downsides. The businessman for example, will be required to pay a lot more tax but are adept at making more money. The mobster has the ability to rob from other players and trade on the black market but earn lower rates of interests on their money when they place it in the bank. The policeman are tough and pay low tax rates but ironically seem to be in jail far more than the other types of players.
Once you have made your choice, you are taken through various tutorials that are obviously designed to get you used to the game and its various features. There are eight in total and each of them will not only make sure you understand the most important aspects of the game but also award you with much needed money for completing them.
Vastwars works as a text based game which means that pretty much any computer will be able to run it but this does mean that unless there is plenty to do, it could become very boring very quickly. Luckily, Vastwars does have a good variety of activities including the main quests and side quests, so you are rarely left with nothing to do.
The strong social aspect of this game also means that you can add friends to either help them out or try to steal their money.
The graphics of this game are hardly anything to write home about but this is basically because it is a text based game. The graphics that are there though, have been done very well and are smooth, clean and sharp. Navigating the game via the user interface is easy to do, especially once you have learned what it is that you should be doing.
Cash Shop Elements
It is extremely rare to find a free to play game that does not offer cash shop elements and this is the case with Vastwars. Players who wish to spend real money in the game can use it to boost the stats of their characters and even purchase additional energy which allows them to complete more tasks on a daily basis.
Vastwars is actually quite an addictive game that really is unique compared to other MMO’s that will keep you entertained for hours on end through the many different tasks and activities that you undertake. It might not be able to match other games graphically but the gameplay is right up there with the best of them.
