    Do you like epic browser games? if so try here..

    http://www.ogame.org/

    It is basically a browser based game (i.e play ANYWHERE & on ANY PC) that you can play for 5mins to hours depending on what you are doing. Nice if you want to spend a few mins of your lunch break or have an hour to kill.


    No real graphics, just facts and figures.. I have been attacked, and won. Also been probed (yikes) and commented on for my B5 tastes..


    Im on Universe 17 - 4:377:10
    planet: Centauri Prime
    Player: House Of Mollari

      If I read up on it correctly, the game simply plays in your browser window. So you just log in and the game loads up.

        Yes as fury pilot says, just make up an account on your prefered universe and away you go.

        Its a game thats very slow to play, something you just pass the time with now and again. very similar to an old Amiga game called Supremacy. Not a game for those brought up with first person shooters i suppose.

        The basics are build your colony using the resources, upgrade when you have more of those resources, research tech to add to your knowledge, build missile defences, fighters and eventually get into space and fight, then eventually conquer other planets.

        Im busy building up my research lab to level 6 and researching into sheild tech so I can build a recycler, so I can pick up the materials left in the first attack on my world.

              Hey i like it, but its pretty static, i wish there were few background music\sound files or some animated clips while you wait, kinda long wait.

                Yes, it would be nice to have a few sound effects, even a few effects to enhance the experience while doing something, such as strange computer noises and clicks, or even important points in the game would be added to with a small piece of music..

                Theres no getting away from it, its a very slow game. I look at it as something you fire and forget for a while, until you can afford something new that is.

                Build up your metals, crystals and solar to begin with, then add some deutrium mines, add some missle defences and perhaps a couple of fighters to begin with.

                Best bet is to check out your technology menu to find what you need to research a particular item. If you have played these type of games before it soon becomes apparent what you need to do, as usual keep a check on how much energy you are using as having a minus (eg -14 for instance) in your sum of energy is not the best way of producing things.

                I've been playing a week now and have only a score of 131 and my rank is 5777 of 13558 players. I have level 8 on my three basic resources and various other tech, such as missile & laser defence.


                You can have alliances or enemys, if some tries to attack you, maybe best to ask them to reconsider until you get started (noob), if you are not online, hope for the best you win.

                What uni did you reg to?

                  Yeah i started to build some metal\crystal\deuterium mines (leveling up), waiting for my resources to build up so i can go and spend on the real deal which is a research lab, still not there.

                  I wont give you my Universe and position, you would probably come and attack me or something LOL.

                        Is this a reference to Office Space the movie. By the way, one of the funniest movies.

I will work to elevate you, just enough to bring you down. Why can't we drink forever? I just want to start this over!" TOOL

                            I'm very honored to receive...this important award -- sorry, I'm getting choked up about this. It means so much for me to get the Red Swingline Stapler Award.

                            I've waited so long for the recognition and appreciation that comes with the Red Swingline Stapler Award. Of course, my acting fee is now triple. The RSS Award trumps the Oscars.

                            <sob, sob, and more tears>

                            Oh, I'd thank to God. I'd thank to thank the creepy guy that got fired in Office Space but never left. I'd also like to thank all the people who've supported me throughout all the years, ups and downs. Enjoy the rest of the show.
