Introducing line of sight and improved economy in Rising Empires!

The fifth update of Rising Empires introduces two new features that will seriously affect game play - Line of sight and punishment for running a bad economy. No longer will it be possible to sight enemies through solid rock walls or to invade enemy towns with unfunded armies. The changes will go live on Google Play and Amazon among others on March 31st.

"It has come to our attention that many players abuse the fact that there is no negative repercussions for an empire with a poor economy. These players will get a tough challenge now that they must limit their army to what they can actually pay for", say the developers. The update will also add better economical information for the players easing their transition to the new game mechanics.

Rising Empires is a 4X strategy game available from Google Play and other app stores. In its recent review, the digital magazine Most Hardcore gave it 4.8 out of the maximum 5 and concluded 'You’ll be hard pressed to find a mobile game that tackles the subgenre with greater success.’ Rising Empires was developed by the independent Swedish studio Hellhound Interactive owned by the two brothers Johan and Peter Norberg. We strive to create smart phone games which give a deeper gaming experience.
