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 weird pixel graphic action mmo dungeon crawler with rogue-like elements was created a long time ago by a small company called wildshadow. After years of awesomeness they had to sell it to kabam to keep the game going, kabam kept it going for some more years also, and now finally it's in the hands of Deca(Thankfully being revived by them after kabam's dark era). I've been with this game for so long i keep coming back to it, the 1000+ hours i have here are only with the steam account(had 2 older accounts before this one). I'm mentioning this so you get the idea that this game is very hard to kill, the people just wanna play this ****. If you're thinking about playing this game let me transfer some of my genuine info to you :). The game is extremely grind-based, so if you're not someone who likes to grind for endless hours everyday then this game should be a pass for you before i even go any further. Now for some pros and cons.

+ Huge variety of enemies/bosses/events with unique variations of butt-clenching bullet hell patterns and tactics.
+ More than big enough player base( very active game)
+ Huge variety of items that adds to the already great replayabilty value of the game.
+ The game is based alot on team play and as mentioned above there's always people to play along with.
+ The game is being properly revived by Deca games and right now is the best time to start playing this game. (Month of the mad god, a special month, will run from 21 july till around the end of august).

- The community(Like most gaming communities) can be very toxic at times. Not as toxic as moba communities don't worry :)
- Lag in this game can punish you extremely high as it is a perma-death game. You need to take caution from both server lag and your own internet lag as not to lose a month work in a second. If you have a decently stable internet connection you should be safe from a lag related death most of the time though.
- Client users/Hacker/Dupers/Bots love to manifest this game; BUT Deca(unlike kabam) is already showing alot of promise in making this a thing of history(fingers crossed).

Conclusion: Definitely a strong recommendation from me, i absoloutely love this game, and you won't have to pay a dime to try it so you should definitely do that. 9/10

Hello

before I'm writing my actual review, I just wanna say that I have over 3000 hours in this game, i can't give you an exact number but that's probably the minimum.
I play this game on the website and in the flash projector (standalone for less lag)
I also make videos about this game so check out my channel if you are interested, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4EZa3q2gtberPdaBW1Qa3w

This game has huge potential, and a short time ago a new company took over the game, taking it from an old moneyhungry company that took away a lot of the game's potential, meaning that it can't get worse.

Right now is probably your best choice to get back into the game, since they might put in some good stuff.
So for now I'd definetly reccomend joining it, that could change in the future tho, depending on how this goes.

but as I said, it can only stay the same as it is or get better.

A very addictive, hella fun "bullet hell MMO" game. I started almost 4 years ago with this game and I just can't give it up! No matter how frustrating it can get with the "perma death" aspect where you lose everything you worked hard for, there'll alway be friends to chill with you/help ya out and when you get good you'll learn to stock up on potions and items that can make "remaxing" not such a pain. The community is generally really nice but it's also full of those not so likeable people which is the case with any game. Well the second owners of it, Kabam, finally sold it to DECA Games after having a good run with it themselves but eventually losing interest in it and not updating or fixing issues much. I must say that so far DECA has done a great job with keeping things lively and updated for the players. Can't wait to see what they'll do to improve the game and I hope they get around to fixing the many connection issues that sometimes plague this game.

Highly recommended! Give it a try, you'll probably end up liking it. :)

Take care all and hope to cya in-game,
Lex

"This game is pay2win"
Guess where the items pro players use come from?
NOT the store, they play, get drops, store them.

I love this game. Playing it is like a rollercoaster. You get scared when it gets dangerous, you get alot of satisfaction riding it. But for every char, no matter how good you play, there is ALWAYS an end.

But you know what? It's a game, ofc, you lose your items that you were farming for weeks. But hey, now you learned what you shouldn't do at that place you died at.

If you're going to play this game for hundreds of hours, read this:

Do not buy
weapons / armor, any type of ingame item.

Do buy
Charakter slots, Vault slots. After getting a few of them, you basically bought the game.

One of the many reasons i love this game is because it uses the old fasion pixelated style. Another reason is because the game looks like its really easy to play . . . but its not its very challenging which makes it very fun.
I have been playing this game for about 4 and a half year and i have really enjoyed playing, throughout the years it has had its ups and downs however now i believe it has reaced the top. Now i believe that it is surpassing the zenith of its current stature thanks to all of the new developers at DECA game.
Further more i really reccomend this game it is really fun and suprising it will make you furious at time and happy or shocked. i think that you should try the game its definately woth the time ;)

P.S thank you so much to the new develops keep up the excellent work
P.P.S the main account i use, he in game name in NeonRyse
