Real-time strategy game of ancient warfare
  20 reviews

0 A.D. (pronounced "zero ey-dee") is a free, open-source, cross-platform real-time strategy (RTS) game of ancient warfare. In short, it is a historically-based war/economy game that allows players to relive or rewrite the history of Western civilizations, focusing on the years between 500 B.C. and 500 A.D. The project is highly ambitious, involving state-of-the-art 3D graphics, detailed artwork, sound, and a flexible and powerful custom-built game engine.

Could this game please get updated? The latest version runs much better and is necessary for playing multiplayer with other people.

Resource heavy, freezes often. the game is a awesome game and can be challenging to get a hold of it. Unless you have good hardware and lots of ram and CPU and GPU power then expected it to freeze your computer. I have lost my grub loader a couple of times after cold booting after it froze. It does warn of performance problems when too many players on on the board in the release notes. I think it is best to only go one on one as It is still in development. very often the game AI will be at advantage to player but wining is possible.

The AI cheats. It can grow its economy exponentially and make military decisions at the same time.

Amazing game!!! That too its free. Great work 0AD team! You guys are awesome. I am really a statagy game genere fan and when i played this game i immediately remembered Age of empires. Thugh this game is much better than AOE2.

If you like Age of Empires back in the day you'll like this one. I usually dont play games on my machine but this one I made an exception.

Probably the best open-source game at the moment. Only problem I found was the weak AI (villagers getting stuck between buildings after they finish building).

The game is ok and very promising, but the AI is too weak. I was a Rise of Nations player -- still am, in my XP Virtualbox -- and it was much, much more challenging. In 0AD, you have to follow some simple principles: build up a strong economy, don't spread too wide at the beginning, just conquer the areas that are vital for economy; after that, move on, attack and destroy the opponent. The programmers could at least give the AI a whopping amount of resources to start with. Formations can also be improved: these are a bit awkward to manage and sometimes move in a weird way. For example, you should be able to give the command: form just here -- and not: form first, then reach this point. This would be useful when you have to quickly reach and defend a position. I also tried to fight two AI opponents at the same time, but that is too difficult, unless you are lucky and don't make any mistakes...

Cuesta acostumbrarse al inicio por la cantidad de opciones de juego, pero cuando lo haces es que descubres todo lo que tiene para ofrecer. Es un simulador excelente con el que puedes pasar horas enteras y no tiene nada que envidiarle a otros del mismo estilo. Completamente lo recomiendo.

I've put in a few hours into this game now, and hell yeah, this is a solid game. Although, the repo should be updated with the latest version of the game (as of writing 0.0.23b). Thanks!

Es un excelente juego de estrategia de guerra antigua en tiempo real. Con tarjeta de video no se ralentiza, si lo hace se guarda el juego y se vuelve a cargar.

Ich liebe es dieses Spiel mit meinen Freunden bei einem Bierchen in einer Mumble Session zu spielen. Eines der grafisch besten opensource Games überhaupt. Ich bin sehr gespannt wie es weiter geht.
