Review of Elvenar BETA

Elvenar is a fantasy city builder game made by InnoGames (the makers of Tribal Wars and Forge of Empires) that combines city planning and optimizations, trading, map exploring and strategic turn-based fighting.

In this enchanting city-builder you can play as an Elf, be close to nature and give to your city a more magical plant-like look or you can choose the engineering Humans option and be the founder of an industrialized powerhouse with medieval style.

The game is currently in Closed Beta phase and comes already filled with a plethora of buildings that visually change with each upgrade (up to level 15) increasing production, and posing various challenges along the way that requires your patience, planning skills, trading abilities and cooperation with your neighbors (although the game is full playable, many improvements will be added in the coming months).
