What an odd little game!
A friend from work showed me this: http://playnileonline.com
Its like Civ / Pharah / Caesar online.
I love these types of games. To me, its like chocolate. You can’t just take one bite and then walk away.
The potential for these types of games are huge. Imagine receiving an SMS when your village has run out of money / food? An alert when your village has finished building an upgrade to the market? Or being told that someone has invaded you?
