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.'

The classic story of a F2P game that is actually good, ruined by the greedy pigs who made it. Just another play to win / pay to have any fun game. To make another character I have to pay £6 or 1000 "gold" as is the ingame currency. All classes locked unless I pay to play with them or get stupidly good with the default class. Best gear, weapons and pets cost money. ♥♥♥♥ you, you greedy ♥♥♥♥ing scum...

I'm going to be honest.. This game is pretty great don't get me wrong. But honestly it's not worth it.. If you understand what i mean, this game is just getting worse and worse and time goes by Kabam is just shredding this game. The community has gone to trash. It's so bad that there is more hackers than legit players, and Kabam fears losing money like a prositute fears a STI screening. ( Like i said don't get me wrong there is lots of fun to be made playing this game ) but it's just not worth it.

-So many disappointing updates
-So many hackers
-So many Microtransactions
.......Bust most of all so many good memories.

RotMG is a game where your credit card is the best weapon.

Pretty clear cash-grab now. Selling power items in a permadeath game for real money is a poor move. Not really worth getting involved. Looked fun, but losing real cash permanently is just terrible.

Ah the game of has been. You couldnt imagine the time I put into this game and how much fun I used to have, Apart from the depression of my lost warriors, and the extremely addicting aspects. I remember the "Good Ol' Days of RotMG" when you could go and defeat bosses with friends and people you didnt know. Now its more of, "Buy this pack of gold coins for 20 dollars and we'll add in a loaf of bread to feed to your pet tree." This game is most DEFINITLY A PAY TO PLAY. To get more than 1 character you have to pay AT LEAST 20 dollars. Also adding that most of this game is now trolling, theres a real fun way to get angry by getting monsters dragged onto you and killed and then Bam! You never see your precious Wizard, warrior, archer, whatever the hell you had ever again. As you may have been able to tell this game can be depressing because of the Perma-Death theme. To add this game has the most lag filled servers you may ever play on. (More ways to die of course.) To conclude, I highly suggest avoiding this game if you enjoy you're life and dont want to get sucked into the never ending black-hole of 'Realm of the Mad God.'

This used to be a great little free game to play in your browser, until it got bought by a different company that completely ruined the game and turned in pay-2-win. It used to be that the game was free but offered cosmetic changes for cash, now you actually buy gear and items that affect gameplay with cash.

Realm of the mad god is one of the best game to play when you are bored. It's simple and fun, but still requiers a lot of skill so you wont get bored of it. Alot of people have been complaining lately, that the game is so pay to win, but i cant agree with them. The "Pay to win" comes in only if u have great skills already, but if you have great skill, you dont have to buy items from cash shop. In the other hand, if you dont have skill, but you buy mega gear with real money, you will just lose it really quickly.

P.S I have played the game ALOT on kongregate and on its official webpage.

This game is one of the most rewarding games I have ever played, but it definatly burns your pocket if you don't have self control. With a massive amount of money grabbing from corprate run devs, you will be bombarded with it. However, with enough skill you can get passed the money aspect of the game, and simpily buy items with player made currency. It's beautiful if you think about it.

Oh and if you die, prepare to cry.

100 hours in and still don't have a white bag, CURSE YOU GAME!.....

But, this game is still amazing. If you don't like games that make you farm for days or weeks to get good gear, then this is not the game for you. Highly addicting after you start playing it, and great skill-based gameplay. This game will take a while to get used to and get good at. Im 100 hours in and still die quite a bit.

tl;dr The game used to be good but the new company that owns it, Kabam transformed it into a pay to win game rather than having players rely on skill.

As an experienced player of this game I cannot honestly not recomend it. Ever since Kabam took it over it has transformed the game from an awesome fantasy rogue like bullet hell, to a generic pay to win mmo. Everytime I play it I feel like it's missing a purpose, and that all I'm doing is running around with underpowered gear attempting to kill bosses, and often failing in doing so because of the way Kabam has remade the game. It is only really fun if you play it with friends, or if you play it for about 10-20 minutes, which really breaks my heart because it used to be one of my all time favorite mmo's back before I ahd a nice computer. 3/10

This really addictive snes style shoot-em-up rpg has a bit of a learning curve. Once you get the hang of it you'll be farming loot in no time,



or suddenly dying due to a minor miscalculation after hours of white knuckled pewing.


Man I love me some perma-death.
