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.'

Fun... one day it was. Not only has the new owner of this company, Kabam, has not only turned this game into a cold-hard pay-to-win, moreover it is extremely careless about anyone who plays this game. The game is infested by many 'hacked clients' of people dashing trough walls and using various other illegit tricks, sometimes just to take away your chances at phat loot, sometimes purposely drag huge mobs of enemies on you trying to get that character of yours killed. Let's not even mention people sitting on the most powerful enemies in the game, taking no damage at all, and calling people to teleport for interesting stuff - instead they teleport to an instadeath. another character wasted.
If you would be able to look past all these downsides there is plenty of fun to be found, and i have found it, before this curtain of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ appeared. If i was to start over, i would most definately not do it.

Completely different from when I started playing it. Used to be you unlocked new classes and saved your lvl 20 loot by actually being good. Community has always been heartless but at least the game used to be fun. Avoid like the plague.

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

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 over 500 hours and just letting you know, don't go there.

Just don't play this game. It's pretty fun and isn't P2P, you'll have a nice time sitting through that repeating farming of items forever. It never ends.

Don't play this game unless you want to be addicted. (15% chance btw. Most people ragequit early.)

[EDIT: BTW, I played on the official site and I can't sync my official site to steam, though it does work vice-versa :( ]

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.

This was an amazing game. Had lots of fun. I played over 200 hours of it with my friends (Browser version) and played it a bit on Steam.

Problem is, this WAS an amazing game. Since Kabam bought it, it had turned from F2P to P2W. And is now unplayable without putting any money into it.

There's nothing quite like gearing up for hours to be 1-shotted by the Mad God himself, losing everything. Great fun regardless with permadeath keeping things always interesting.

I haven't played much on Steam, but I've played for more than 3 years on the original website, and some on Kongregate.


This game is terrible. I hate it so much. Why cant I stop playing it.
