Thirst of Night Review

The premise of the game is simple: The humans have managed to almost annihilate themselves, leaving vampire the undisputed rulers of the world. Thirst of Night puts you in the place of one of these vamps. Your buildings aren’t just Barracks and Research Stations though. This game does a great job of making you feel like a vampire building up for world takeover by having buildings like the Blood Factory and the Nightclub. Your main base is called Downtown. You can use your vampire armies to attack the remaining pockets of humans, other vampires or places like mountains prairies and lakes. Each resource you take over boosts your production and destroying enemies gives you experience.

Resources are key here, just like in most RTS’s, however there’s some easy ways to gain bunches of them, and that’s by completing Quests. Some are simple, like “Build a Blood Factory” others are more complicated, like “teaching the 1000 Hipsters and 500 Hobo’s how to chill, permanently.”

Troops consist of various types of vampires and assorted creatures, along with a Gargoyle that must be trained up to become a major piece in any attack.

It takes time to construct buildings, and this is where a bit of the shine starts to rub off. Some buildings take a very long time to construct. You can speed up the construction time by using an item called a Speed Up, but you don’t have too many and must take care when to use them.

Like most free to play games, there’s a component that players can buy to spend on things like Speed Ups called Rubies. You start with a tiny stash of them, and then must buy more if you want them. If you have other things to do online or want to chat with the other players while you wait for the buildings and troops to finish, then the wait might not be an issue. The game was interesting enough for me to wait through several long builds and watch my resources go up by one every few seconds or so.

Combat really isn’t very interesting because it’s all done off-screen. You send your army of vampires and bats and maybe the gargoyle marching off to crush your enemies and then wait for the battle to finish and get the results. This reminds me of the old old game Fantasy Empires, where you’d send your heroes off on a quest and hoped they came back alive. Sometimes they did, and sometimes they didn’t. You can spend Rubies to recover lost troops, but otherwise they are gone. This takes a bit of the fun out of playing, as does not having an actual combat to play through.

Now there are ways to earn Speed Ups and other items without spending Rubies. When you log in, there’s a game called Lilith’s Luck, where you match up items on cards. Whatever you match, you get.

If the slow building and no combat doesn’t bother you, the game is actually pretty fun. I enjoyed crushing enemies and fulfilling Quests. Thirst of Night is a game I’d love to see further developed into a true RTS game, just because it’s different.

    kabam games suck, they allow cheating and only ban certain people, thy have nothing put into place to stop the cheaters, the game is based on power, it is impossible to get 5million power in a day, yet people are getting it, ans when you report them they do nothing, but they ban people that do not cheat, and they pick who they ban, they do not monitor there chats, they are the worst company for games i have ever come across, i will write a review everywhere warning people, the game is highly addicting and then u try to have fun and they let people walk all over you, the customer service is awful, they senbd u an automated reply and then dont get back to you, they are raking on allot of money and i think they should be responsible for there games, my advice to anyone is stay away from all there games, i hear they ar all the same, filled with cheaters

    Kabam lets players that spend a bit of money get away with cheating, and players that play free that cheat they ban, here is the cheat they are all using look up userscripts in firefox and join look up that number and you can also clone troops 136950 or similar ones, all you have to do is install grease monkey into firefox, then install the script, refresh the game the script is there, you hit attack, then u enter the red blood camp you wish to hit, then u put in the troop type and how many, you want to send, just make sure it is enough to take the red blood camp you are going to, then hit zerg, then update, wait a bit and done, then u clean ur cache when done, you see players going up to 30mil power, and stuff, yet they do nothing, and a player that gains a lil bit like 2mil they ban, its a shame they are selective and not fair, i say we all cheat and have them ban everyone, they do nothing when people cheat, for weeks and weeks, and well allot of times never, they want players to say who cheats, how do they really know who is cheating, they leave players with 30mollion power gains a week play and lil ones that gain a few they ban, they are an awful company and should be investigated
