Ever wished you could play a good real time strategy game in your browser with minimal fuss? That’s exactly what Littlewargame aims to achieve with its simple (but very enjoyable) browser based RTS.

Littlewargame is all about getting you into a game quickly, allowing players to play with a guest account and literally be playing a single player game in only a few seconds. Games can support up to 4 players with a huge range of maps designed for 1v1, 2v2 and free for all engagements. This large map variety ensures you won’t be running out of options anytime soon regardless of your preferences.

While you’ll definitely get a greater challenge from versing another player the AI puts up quite a good fight and the game even lets you load your own custom AI if you’re interested in coding a difficult opponent for yourself or other players.

If coding isn’t for you then there is still plenty of opportunity to contribute to the community through the map editor that lets you create your own maps and make them available to others.

Each game in Littlewargame has you starting out with a castle and several workers in a standard RTS fashion. From here you’ll need to send your workers out to collect gold and eventually take out your opponents by researching stronger technologies, creating an army and controlling the map.

While these mechanics won’t be anything new to a gamer with some RTS experience under their belt it all comes with a unique charm and runs extremely smoothly.

For a browser game the strategy depth in Littlewargame is quite good. You’ll find yourself mixing units like the soldier, rifleman, mage, catapult and even dragons while upgrading their damage and defences to suit your grand strategy. It might not rival the depth of a full blown game but it’s more than enough to keep you interested and you’ll no doubt see more units added over time as the game has a good track record of updates.

Littlewargame is a little gem that is perfectly suited to players wanting a quick RTS fix.

Summary:

  • Free to play browser based real time strategy game.
  • Supports up to 4 players in each game.
  • Hundreds of maps to try or create your own in the map editor.
  • Constant updates and big plans for the future.
  • Good level of strategic depth.
