More about Age of Empires

Gameplay

Age of Empires 1 challenges the player to develop a civilization from a handful of hunter-gatherers to an extensive Age of Empire 1. To prove victory, the player must gather resources to pay for new units, buildings, and more excellent technology. Funds must be preserved, as no new resources become available as the game progresses; for example, trees that are cut down will not grow back.

Twelve civilizations are ready (sixteen civilizations in Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome version), each with individual sets of attributes, including a varying number of open technologies and units. Each culture has techniques unique to them so that no civilization possesses all the technologies potential within the game. A major component of the game is the progression through four ages. These are the Stone Age (Mesolithic/Nomad/Paleolithic), the Tool Age (Neolithic/Chalcolithic), the Bronze Age and the Iron Age.

Conclusion

Age of Empires is an excellent game for you to entertain after the long hours of works. This game also brings you more friends, develop your creativity, and practice your strategic skills. If 'cheating' is what you need, open the 'Chat Box' and type plenty of commands that can help you play easily. Now, let's play and experience the Age of Empires!
