It couldn’t be more obvious if we would say that this is the game for all the Vikings theme fans. However, first of all, this game will be appreciated by fans of minimalist strategy in general.

We really have to admit that this game is really stylish though it seems simple from the first side.

Unique characters with interesting abilities and the ability to interact with pets, building and defending your villages without time limitations, and going through interesting missions are even not all factors that you will discover in the exciting game Viking Village.

Another game that has been tremendously popular for several years already. We decided not to add it to our top choice because everyone already knows about DomiNations and it’s a little bit cheesy but at the same time, it’s a high-quality base-building game that we can’t miss out on.

Do we even need to say that all fans of history-based games?

The main goal of this game is you creating your empire and take command of the whole nation. You will be able to turn a small village into a prosperous city. In the beginning, you will have to choose one of the 8th nations and take off on the journey to history campaigns.

Remember that each nation has its own features and unique abilities. You will need to create your army and then apply your powers against other players. And just like in other games here you can create alliances with other players to team up together and conquer the world.

Your nation will be evolving throughout the centuries. You will learn its history and will find out a lot of interesting facts. You will be learning from the best historians in the world at universities for example Leonardo da Vinci will be your teacher.

By acquiring new skills you will be able to create unique technologies and new architectural buildings. So as you understood from the description one of your main tasks here will be building the world’s most famous architectural objects such as the Egyptian Pyramids or Rome’s Colosseum.

Here the battles are perfectly combined with the management of resources and development of your Villages and cities. You’ll have to study each civilization and what works for it, acquire new weapons, and teach your warriors to evolve the academy and conquer the neighbors.

The following nations are available for choosing Roman, British, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and Greek.

The only thing that we don’t really like in this game is its graphics, it looks a little bit ordinary so there is nothing bad in it. However, in comparison to other Base building games, it doesn’t contain anything ordinary and it’s quite cheesy.

What is more, a lot of players complain about the game issues, such as hangs, legs, and other problems.

Another cool bonus of the game is it has different weather modes and the weather in the game changes just like in the real world. The game has more cartoon-like three-dimensional graphics so it will be interesting even for children.

However, it is quite a difficult game, especially at the beginning. Apart from that come up we didn’t find any significant disadvantages.

Townsmen is another extra popular and super famous game and it’s actually really similar to Boom Beach game or to Clash of Clans. The main difference is it has another animation style and the action here takes place in the Middle Ages.

So if you’re a fan of this Middle Ages style and you want to build your medieval town then this game is your choice.

All the other factors here are quite the same as in other games which means you have to raise your village or town from the ground, develop it, and manage the resources so the city is evolving economically, financially, and so on.

The war aspect is also here and you will have to take part in battles and defend your enemies in order to acquire more territories and gain more resources.

One of the significant features of townsmen is here you have to play in different weather conditions and the seasons are changing one another which adds diversity to the process.

The best part of the Townsmen game is that the game is totally free. However, it has some built-in purchases. But taking into consideration the fact that it’s free, be ready for the excessive amount of ads that will be popping up quite often.

Last Fortress: Underground

This game has more of a dark atmosphere in it. The main theme of it is that everything is happening in a post-apocalyptic future where all the people are hiding in the bunker.

Your task will be to build and develop this bunker so the zombies that live in the outside world cannot reach you.

You will get a range of tools and instruments to expand your dwelling and stay underground. You will be interacting with other characters and each of the survivors possesses the special skills and special abilities that will help you get through the Apocalypse.

You will have chefs, doctors, engineers, nurses, and so on and you will have to use their skills wisely to stay safe. This is also an online multiplayer game so you can team up with players from all around the world.

Your main task here is to speed up the expansion of the bunker and keep the defense line so the zombies cannot get through the line. The battle modes are particularly available but they are not as abundant as in the case with some previous games.

Considering the graphics and the gameplay in general it’s much more simple here because sometimes it feels more like a quest game when you just see one location and you just have to control the characters over it.

Sometimes you switch between the scenes but the animations are not so realistic and it’s obvious that last Fortress has lots of issues in this field.

Apart from that, it’s a decent game, but it still has lots of imperfections because it’s relatively new in the market it’s and it’s still a raw version.

Forge of Empires

Okay, okay, we understand that we’ve already had such games as Townsmen, Survival City, Dominations, Viking Village, and many others on this list but we would like to present another game that is based on the idea of the historical events.

The reason we included this game in the list of the best building games is because it’s truly one of the best games in this category. The idea here actually is really similar to DomiNations.

Your task here is to start a develop a small village inside a small country and just watch how it grows into a large civilization and tremendous power.

The main difference between DomiNations and Forge of Empires is that here you cannot only play in the historical past, but action also takes place in the future. Therefore you got no limits.

In other aspects, the algorithm of the game stays the same you need to win the battles, conquer the enemies and obtain new territories, manage the resources, create economic growth, and so on.

Make your city successful. Here you can also trade with your neighbors and exchange goods. And even though some bottles are available here, this is more of a resource management base-building game where you have to be economically and strategically wise and just have a good business sense.

Considering graphics, here it’s made in 2D but all the locations are pictured in the smallest details.

These old textures make this game exciting to play. So, if you want to play a strategic Base building game that allows you to see your cities in the future times then this is your option.
