DarkOrbit is a free browser game from Bigpoint, one of the largest publishers of free MMO games in the world. They’re responsible for other hits such as Deepolis, Seafight and Battlestar Galactica Online.
DarkOrbit manages to be a simple game, but also a very addictive experience filled with options. While some players mention the need to use real money to advance in the higher levels, others say that it’s possible to climb the ranks without spending any cash. Supposedly it all goes down to player skill and dedication.
In the game, you’re a space pilot and start by choosing your company: Mars Mining Operation, Earth Industries Corporation and Venus Resources Unlimited. Then you’re off to deep space, collecting resources and fighting other ships. If you perform well you’ll earn experience points and increase in rank, being able to use better equipment in our ship. Things such as better shields and weapons are vital to our success.
It’s worth to try DarkOrbit, a free MMO shooter that will please a lot of players while they wait for the next major MMORPG.
