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.'

Before you say I have no experience with this game, I have played for a good few hundred hours on the browser version.

This game USED to be good. It really was. Back then, a company called Wildshadow owned the game. It was truly f2p, with skill and no money required.

Then, a company called Kabam took over. They changed the game into a cashgrab. Skins? Buy gold. Vaults and characters? Buy gold. 1-life weapons or keys? Buy gold. Everything is gold gold gold. Updates are rare, and even when they come they just add more items to be purchased with gold. In fact, the way they 'celebrate' holidays is by creating cheap weapon reskins for more people to buy with.. you guessed it, gold!!

You might be thinking, at least there's player interaction! No, there isn't. The game is infested with hackers, scammers, enemy draggers, spambots, etc. Kabam doesn't care at all. After all, you don't make any money from clearing away hackers, so why bother?

TL;DR: Stay away.

Kabam killed this game as it spiraled down towards its inevitable end.
RIP

I used to love this game, I played it everyday with my clan but then came the update that ruined the game.
They turned the game into pay to win and then I just gave up on the game because you would have to spend hundreds of $ or £ or whatever your currency is just to have more fun in the game and when you bought the upgrades, most of them were terrible.

This game has lost it's charm over the years and I wish it had it's charm but it's gone downhill now so far so that I can't even register, sign in, and even ♥♥♥♥ing so far as ♥♥♥♥ing unplayable sure I can play on the browser but what about my characters I leveled up and actually wasted ♥♥♥♥ on when it was good? If it could have its old charm and actually allow me to play then mabye just maybe i'll change my mind but now its not the game that it used to be. Not many servers are populated then it used to be (without hackers and actual players that used to play). This game has aged and now it's gone. It's time to move on and find new games.
