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.

  • 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, as a free to play game, is prone to have some type of pay to win thing going on with it. This game's isn't as bad as most, but it still is kind of annoying that in the first 3 seconds of loading into the game a buyable thing is shoved into your face. overall the buyable materials are not necessary to have fun in the game, so I would say that they did a good job there. I mean it's free try it if you want to and see what you think. With my experience though i unlocked all but 1 character and i just lost all will to play the game because it got boring as h***. (the game is free if you didn't know xd)

I would really like to recommend this game, but with all that is wrong with it, I can't in good conscience recommend this to anyone.

Realm of the Mad God starts off rather fun. You start leveling up and exploring and getting new weapons. You start interacting with other players....But then you notice the really cool weapons and pets that the other players have. Once you reach level 20 (if you even get that far) you stop finding new weapons all together. By now you have most likely realized that when you die, you start all over again and you lose everything in your inventory.

Eventually, you come to realize that this is just another P2W game with ♥♥♥♥ devs

Scammers and hackers are rampant in this game, and Kabam could not care less. The scammers clog up the chat so much that you can't use it at all, and the hackers run around trolling everything. Almost all the legit weapons are not available in the playable world; you have to pay $ to get them. If your lucky enough to get a pet, you need to spend more $ to make it useful.

I enjoyed this game very briefly, but it was all downhill.
Don't bother trying this one; it's not worth the effort.

My thoughts during a ROTMG playthrough
THIS HUB IS TOO CROWDED
Alright, where are some monsters to wreck?
Oh look, that's a nice item for a different class. Time to lock it up into the vault to never be used again.
Oh thanks for carrying me through everything, lvl 20.
And he's gone.
Is there really a point in going though this portal? Eh, why not.
Oh my god, this quest boss is sooo far away
Is this quest really worth it? I've been walking for like f-
OH ♥♥♥♥ THAT'S A STRONG ENEMY! RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN! NOOOOOO!
Well, that run was fun.
Rinse and repeat.

Over all the game is good for what it is, and its fun to play as long as your okay with the death of your character and losing all the stuff you had on them.

So saying that I really have nothing negative to say about the game. I just wish the developers were more active and relased more updates more ofthen.

Also hopeing for some feedback on this, I know you can link your steam acount to the browser version, but is there a way to link the browser version of the game to your steam account?

It's awesome.
ROTMG managed to be at the same time addicting (as f*),fun and original,and those 3 adjectives undoubtly are the "best" for a game.
I've had about 900-1k hours on this game (counting with browser gameplay),died a lot, made a lot of mistakes and kept doing them,killed more gods than Kratos, built a lot of amazing sets only to die before level 20 with them because I was being stupid.
Anyways, this is one heck of a patience test aswell, even though it doesn't lag that much(not on Steam)lag will certainly get you killed more than once, be it rubberbanding due to your internet suddenly f*ing up or just typical server lag.Permadeath is enough to get you raging for about 5 minutes, then you just go on telling yourself "How could I be that stupid?".After a while you're laughing at your horrendously nooby death,already racking up on pots with decent gear.
Farming isn't that much of a thing: you'll always find new challenges,even if you're a dungeon-runner.Things get harder,and practice is key, if you're skilled you can do hard dungeons with really nooby equipment.
Only thing I didn't like in my whole hours of Realm,the loot system.
It's really annoying.
Like, pretty damn annoying.
Some classes just can't get loot in dungeons(except if they're 8/8 badass guys)wink wink, Priest and even Wizard if you can't get a decent lock.
Other than that, gameplay is fun with ANY class,it doesn't matter, if you've always played melee,you'll do just as good on a ranged here, at the Realm.

Realm of the Mad God... Where do I start?

Realm is one of my top played games (look at my hours) and I have been enjoying this game since the beginning.
Wildshadow had been a good company, helping users and constantly updating the game. When Wildshadow couldn't support the game, they sold it to.... you guessed it, Kabam.

Kabam, is one of my least favorite companies, because they never update the game, and never try to stop the hackers and multi-boxers. I could go on and on, but recently, Kabam has made a choice to sell RotMG to a company called GAEA.

Now GAEA, I have never heard of, but their games seem very good, have good reviews, and I personally hope they can bring RotMG back from the grave and have players re-unite.

All in all, RotMG used to be a ♥♥♥♥ game, but! A new developer may make the game more playable.

Now ive only played this game for 35 hours, but I was playing before kabam came in, and quite frankly they destroyed everything about the game. I guess they made new items but that doesn't make a difference. This game seems unplayable to me

High amount of fun and risk because it is Perma-Death. When you get a good character and use it for multiple months, it is insanely devistating to lose them, so if you cannot handle that loss don't get super attached to this game.

Realm of the Mad God is a massively co-op action RPG created with an overused generic pixel art.

The game was decent at first, and i have put alot of hours and money into this game, but... It's all pay to win now.

It really seems fun when you start, but then you realize that the only reliable way to get good items is to pay Kabam or use 100 hours on a charecter trying to make it 6/8 and endning up dying because of server lag. You will last a few lives until you ragequit because of the completely unique yet really annoying perma-death mechanic, which only enforces the motivation to pay.
Ofcause you can manage to play the game without paying anything and have fun, but it will seriously take you 300years to manage to get as far as someone who just put in 50$ on the game.


Don't waste your time or $ on this game, its a dying game and havnt been updated for a long time and probably wont get any updates in the near future.

Overall: Dont waste your time and hardearned money on this game.

I've been playing this game for years (even if not through Steam), and I can say that, through time, it has evolved to provide many unique and exciting features:
- Severe game balancing issues! Land tons of damage with one class and steal loot from other poor useless players!
- No serious updates in years! You can play the same dungeons again, and again and again! And then some more!
- Rampant cheating! And if this doesn't still sell this to you, also know that the company now managing the game, the infamous Kabam, totally ignores cheater reports!
- Poisonous community! Scammers? We got those! Leechers? Of course, the game actually encourages leeching! Racial and homophobic insults? Goes without saying!
- Pay to win!!! You think you can max your pet without spending real money? Think again!!! And if you don't feel like buying game gold, just check out the black market spambots that make the game chat window completely unusable!
- Much, much more!

Hasn't been any major updates in over a year. Kabam only seems to care about money. If you want to play Realm without the pay to win the original is plagued with try Nillys Realm. (a private server with more content and no P2W)

I have been playing this game for four years now. ( I have more hours logged than it shows because I play on Flash projector now ) I've logged probably around 2000 hours. The game is A ton of fun. But it is slowly and sadly dying because no devs work on the game anymore. I just hope they put a dev or two on the game, or sell it to someone who will. Long live rotmg. Get the game, try it out. It's enjoyable.

Great F2P Game

Great Bullet-Hell MMO , which is F2P. It offers alot of classes, items , realms , dungeons , monsters and gods. It got prema death , which made me better player overall. When u die there is no way to retrieve your character. U lose all your items and gear u had on this character. If u find good stuff u can save it in the Vault and later use it with other character. Great leveling system and ranking system. The leveling system is simple: U kill an enemy and u get XP , u got 20 levels , when u reach Level 20 , u dont get anymore XP and instead u get FAME . The fame is for the ranked system. With every class ,when u earn FAME , u complete your class quest. Every completed class quest gives u Star. When u get alot of stars , for example : 28 u get Red Star Which is your rank. Thats how the level and ranked system work. Alot of people say the game is P2W. Well the answer is NO . Yes u can buy all the items from the start with real money , but if u play alot and try harder , u can take these items from the dungeons and stuff. So the game is NOT P2W .

There is a few bad things in the game

  • There is ALOT OF BOTS AND HACKERS , and the developers dont do anything about it.
  • The servers sometimes stops or lags alot
  • Theres alot of spammers on the Nexus ( Spawn )

Overall i recommend this game , or atlest try it. Its good F2P and alot of fun.

I just want to say my own thoughts, how to know if something's truly good or bad? Try it, try it for youself and decide. Give yourself a couple hours to dabble in it.

I've played this game on a website - Kongregate for games which was quite some time ago, it was a fun experience as a whole for me. Exploring new areas, killing new enemies, getting items and trying out new classes. When I saw this on steam, I was happy to see it still doing well. This really kindled my fire for pixel roguelike games, that was hidden away somewhere in my heart, quietly smothering away. I only played it for a while not because it wasn't fun anymore, I had a large pile of urgent work and etc to do. It sure does feels a little sad now when I look back at myself when I was younger.

Edit: I don't have 4.3 hours on this game. I have 4.3 hours on steam, but around 360 hours on the game on the web browser.

This game is mostly great! It's a truely great Perma-Death MMO experience. From the monsters to the bosses, everything seems to line up and make some sort of pixely genius of a game! There are some cons of course. First of all it's pay to win to the max. You can buy max level gear and dominate throughout the game. Another problem is that it contains urgles... The laggiest thing I have ever seen in a game to date. It shoots out these orbs that make more orbs. This causes you to often die because of how much it drops your frames. Another thing is that it's Perma-Death, so if you have problems with losing all of your gear when you die, I don't recommend this game. If you add up all of the pros and cons, I think that this game deserves a good review!
