MMORPG - Those six letters personify PC gaming. Logging into your level 67 battle mage and spending countless hours mashing mouse buttons and hitting hotkeys. It's the way these games were meant to be played, right? Since its release in 2007, the iPhone has been nothing short of a phenomenal success, and with the App Store revolutionising gaming on the move, is the way we approach online multiplayer gaming about to change?
Kingdom Heroes is an Oriental-themed MMO that stretches the limitations of the average MMO.

How different is Kingdom Heroes from the other MMOs that carry the same theme? I'm hella excited so let's jump right in!

Dawn Of Nations is an MMO web browser game set in the unforgiving campaigns of World War 2. The game actually feels a bit TOO much like Evony Online, but since it shares the same war theme, it's a given that it will also contain the generic browser game basics. To be honest, I'm not really sure why the sub-genre (web browser wars) refuses to evolve. We've seen countless games that share the same system, as though the developer's only goal was to launch something that completely matches the recent threshold of enjoyment rather than create something new and potentially better. So what separates Dawn of Nations from both its predecessors and successors? What makes this war game so different? I guess we'll soon find out.
