STRATEGY Elements of War MMORTS

Mmorts

Massively multiplayer online real-time strategy games, also known as mmorts, combine real-time strategy (rts) with a persistent world. Players often assume the role of a general, king, or other type of figurehead leading an army into battle while maintaining the resources needed for such warfare. The titles are often based in a sci-fi or fantasy universe and are distinguished from single or small-scale multiplayer rts games by the number of players and common use of a persistent world, generally hosted by the game’s publisher, which continues to evolve even when the player is offline.

Tower Defense

Tower defense games have a very simple layout. Usually, computer-controlled monsters called creeps move along a set path, and the player must place, or “build” towers along this path to kill the creeps. In some games, towers are placed along a set path for creeps, while in others towers can interrupt creep movement and change their path. In most tower defense games different towers have different abilities such as poisoning enemies or slowing them down. The player is awarded money for killing creeps, and this money can be used to buy more towers, or buy upgrades for a tower such as increased power or range.
