“Run An Empire’ fits into existing exercise routines, whilst giving new runners an incentive to get started” - Variety

Whether walking to your workplace or running a marathon, capture the places you move through and bring them under the banner of your empire. See your activity transformed into a 3D heat map, as the places you visit most rise up like mountains from the ground.

Start with a Stone Age hunting camp and progress through the ages from there - classical, medieval, renaissance and modern. Manage a civilisation from your doorstep, as you unlock farms, forges, factories and (eventually) a space port. Hire stone masons, priestesses and engineers to bring wealth to your empire - then invest your fortunes back in to even bigger rewards!

Unlock a powerful new warrior with each new era of civilisation. Unleash your foot soldiers upon local castles and dominate friends and neighbours to be the ultimate conqueror. Show local opponents who’s boss by flying your unique customised banner design over the castles you hold.

‣ Capture and own your street, your neighbourhood and your city as you travel on foot
‣ Run, jog or walk - perfect for beginners or experienced runners
‣ Build a vast settlement on the real-world lands you own - or capture new places you visit!
‣ Track and map every run from your pocket, using your phone’s GPS
‣ Upgrade your warriors and battle neighbours and friends to own nearby castles
‣ Record distance, calories, speed and see your performance improve
‣ Design your own customised banner to fly over your mighty empire
‣ Advance through the eras, from the Stone Age to the Space Age
‣ Pair with Strava and leave your phone at home!

I work hard almost every day to run/walk to capture castles so I can grow faster, but there are cheaters in my neighbourhood who capture the castles back literally within a few minutes of me ending my run, and there is still no report function! I am giving up now because its so infuriating and disappointing to try. I have seen so many other comments about cheaters in the reddit for Run an Empire, its such a shame the developers still haven’t put any effort into this.
It’s a great concept and have loved it for over a year now, but there are ALWAYS glitches. Developers are always changing the rules and coming up with new ideas but hardly ever fix the basic problems. It seems like they don’t listen to any feedback. Also, it started out pretty much free/could play for free (just with ads), but so much of it is becoming monetised. I don’t mind supporting a small startup or new app, in fact I quite happily do, but its a shame when the core concepts of the game are monetised and becomes cheap.
Love it but its not worth it to spend my time/money on here anymore. Developers - please listen to your devoted fans’ feedback, and come up with a way to report cheaters! It ruins the whole thing for the rest of us

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for your review. Players using transport will not receive any rewards for their run and we are working on better cheat detection for players using other means.
We are a small team, however we try out best to hear all player feedback to help make improvements to the game. We appreciate you letting us know your thoughts. If you are experiencing bugs or have any questions, you can contact us via feedback@runanempire.com we'd love to get these sorted for you. Thank you.

Strange glitch

I love the game. It’s great for getting people outside and to try and run as far as possible but I have come across a glitch that won’t let me run. When I click the run button I go outside and we’ll run but when I end my run it freezes and I don’t get the in game credits from the hex’s I ran. It’s really annoying and ruins the game. And since I can’t unlock hex’s i don’t have enough space for my buildings. Please fix this issue as it is annoying and stopping me from playing. Until they fix this I can’t play the game. It was a great game before this happened

Great motivator!

Gives me that extra incentive I need to get out and go for a jog or a walk. The game mechanic is fun and when other players steal my castles it just makes me want to get back out there and take them back! :-)
