About This Game

Realm of the Mad God is the first ever free to play Bullet Hell MMO. Team up with dozens of players and battle through the Realm of the Mad God, Oryx. With a retro 8-bit style, Realm is an evolution of traditional MMO gameplay. A dozen classes and hundreds of items to discover means Realm is easy to play but difficult to master. Players can jump in Realm for 5 minutes or stay online for hours because there is nothing to install or download.

Key Features

  • Action combat! No turn-based battles here, only skilled running and gunning.
  • Epic boss battles. Navigate demented waves of bullets from nasty demons.
  • True cooperative play. All experience is shared and you win by playing together.
  • Great 8-bit art: Retro styling straight from the 8-bit era.
  • Over a dozen unique character classes. Play as a powerful wizard, a clever mystic, a brawling warrior.
  • Loot! Hundreds of weapons, potions, armors, and rings.
  • PermaDeath. Dying well means something in Realm. Earn fame if you survive for long enough and kill enough monsters.
  • Sheep. The sheep say 'Baa.'

This game used to be the bees knees.
Everyday playing for hours on end back on kongregate.
Epic boss battles, friends, and lots of skill.
If you saw someone with awesome stuff, you know they had been through some serious crap.

Now I'd rather have beens on my knees then play this game.
I refuse to even touch this, much less play it for hours.
Laggy servers, bad community, and pay2win.
If you saw someone with awesome stuff, you know they spent real world money and did nothing to earn it.

This is the ultimate case of a game being sold to a greedy company, that ruins it completely.

RIP RotMG

I was overrealmed with this game, Kabam comes, spankes me on the left facehole and ruins the feels of a good F2P game :(
+ It crashed the everything when we entered the best part of the game (Oryx' Castle) DX
++, you started with 50 coins, which is ruined because all of the items costing 50 Coins are now 51 dollers, so you would have to pay (real) money to get one more feaking coin

Good game + Selfish new Devs = A not nice feel all over that face you care about

It's pretty sad to see such an awesome game go from free 2 play to pay 2 win. It costs 10 dollars just to change your character's name. If you can not stop yourself from buying game items that are good your character then DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME. Otherwise you may have decent fun.

I played the browser version of this a lot. It was plenty fun, grinding pots with friends, maxing a char, dying, crying, vowing not to be overconfident again, then repeat. It would still be fun right now if Kabam actually puts their effort into balancing the classes and dungeons and all that, but noooo they only care about their sweet money. We haven't seen an update for months, and the game is overrun by hackers and bots. I wish I can see your glorious days again, my dear RotMG..

Everyone stahp. We get it, Kabam is literally the filthiest casual ever.
The game, however, provided you cover your eyes in the Nexus (A sanctuary of sorts, with small portals leading to 'realms', each being able to hold 85 players, and they're named after minor gods in the realms, ie, Beholder, Medusa, Djinn) Is a very fast - paced RPG Action rogueish game in which you play as one of... over 12 classes, varying based on range, damage, and special abilities. The first playable class, The Wizard, is a long ranged caster who'se special attack is a 'spell bomb', A ray of damage, exploding in a radius around the area you've pointed it in. The spell bomb can do varying levels of damage, which segways to my next point, the equipment in game.
We all know Kabam decided that they just couldn't ♥♥♥♥♥ enough cash, and became steal your poor mothers card and buy items you will shortly lose. Anyhow, the ACTUAL equipment is earned through play, killing enemies, bosses, or even looting chests. The armor, weapon, one ring you're allowed, and ability you have all scale via Tiering. Starting at 0, only giving you a weapon suited to your class, and the ability your class uses, both TIER 0. The more you play, the more loot receive. With a max Tier of 13 (as of now) You've got quite the ladder to scale.
Phew.
I'm not going to run over the points several more adept players / reviewers have done before me. That's the general Gist.
Don't die.

I'm very torn between giving this game the very strong hate everyone else has, due to Kabam marking it for a special place in Free to Play, Pay to Win Hell.

But cmon, guys. Kabam may have took a gun and shot blindly, and missed the mark they claimed to have hoped to achieve...
Nope. Got nothing. Sorry Ka♥♥♥♥♥~ I tried.

Seriously, Kabam? You just HAD to ruin an already perfect game. I get that paying to get certain perks helps out the devs, but don't make it so that you have to pay to advance. Screw you Kabam.

The game wouldn't let me register or link an account. I spent $20 on their noob pack, and lost it all when they changed their terms of service.

Along time ago, in a reality far far away, THIS GAME WAS FUN AND NOT BLOWN TO ♥♥♥♥ BY KABAM AND ITS STUPID ♥♥♥♥.
I used to enjoy this game on kongregate, and for a while i acctuly didnt notice how pay to win it got once kabam bought it.
Just until now, my 20th hour of kabams greed over this game, I noticed how you could no longer buy good equipment with fame, only realm gold. it was alot more enjoyable when the other comapany bought it. THEY TOOK A PERFECTLY GOOD BULLET HELL MMO AND BLOWN IT TO ♥♥♥♥, IT DOSENT REQIURE SKILL ANYMORE, IT REQUIRES MONEY.
