“Don a pair of sneakers and run (jog, or walk) to victory” - Engadget

“If you’re partial to a mobile game and want to ease your way into training more and logging your progress, this could be for you.” - Men’s Running

“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!

Link to other Apps

I think this app is great and fun. It gets people motivated. However it would be great if the app is able to link to apps like strava, Garmin, Nike Run app. Reason being not everyone likes to bring their phones along for a run.

Extremely disappointing

It was promising at first, but ugly bugs and developer inaction have rendered this game largely unplayable. Runs fail to credit coins, age progress is stuck firmly at 0% even after a month, and the supposed automatic updating of your game data to their databases seems inconsistent at best and nonexistent at worst.

Meanwhile, the developers appear to be more intent on monetising the game than actually fixing these issues, making in-game microtransactions take up more space in the main interface, and generally focusing on what “gems” can buy (i.e. what the player can buy with real money).

Case in point: the latest update introduces statues, placeable objects which are purchasable multipliers, in place of previously un-named multipliers, and makes them take up a spot at the bottom of your screen. This update does not at all address any of the bugs—in fact, it made some worse.
