Ikariam is an online real-time strategy game where you have to manage your resources to extend your imperium from a small settlement in a forsaken island to a complex network of cities and colonies. Its theme is based around the Mediterranean coast that saw many civilizations come and go, trade and fight. Keeping this very spirit, Ikariam is bases around two concepts: trade and fight your neighbors to get the desires and rare resources that your cities need to keep expanding.
Game-Tour (1/5) - Your Town
At the beginning of Ikariam you only own a small, fertile piece of land on a green coast.
Can you turn it into a flourishing town and capital of a mighty island empire? These pages will give you a general idea of how to get there.
Game-Tour (2/5) - Resources
There are five resources distributed over the islands of the world:
Building Material, Wine, Marble, Crystal Glass and Sulphur.
Game-Tour (3/5) - Building
During the game you will definitely need a lot of building material - assign workers in order to get building material and expand the resource deposits together with the other players on the island!
After you have sorted out the resource supplies, you can start and expand your town.
1. An academy allows you to make many fantastic discoveries.
2. With barracks you can begin to instruct troops.
3. Building a trading port and trade ships will allow you to trade resources with other players.
Game-Tour (4/5) - Advisors
Four loyal advisors will stand by you, so that you are always up to date and keep your head above the water.
When they light up, this means that a new message for you has arrived. Then you can get the newest information from your advisors.
Game-Tour (5/5) - Views
You can change the view in Ikariam as you like. From the world view over the island maps to the town view.
Now you have learnt all the important things for the start - you only have to register (for free!) and then you are ready to go!
