Voobly is a network that brings gamers together and enables them to play a wide range of strategy games and first-person shooters that date from a few years back. Its client provides an intuitive and straightforward means of interaction between those who are eager to play against a human opponent, something that’s a bit of a privilege considering just how old the games are.
Keeping Age of Empires, Quake II and others alive
Age of Empires is one of the biggest and most appreciated real-time strategy games since ever. It has spawned several expansions while keeping its core gameplay solid and faithful to the genre; it still is an RTS that’s worth playing.
Thanks to Voobly, old school gamers and the new generations can come together in an online environment and play AoE and other classics against each other. Along with the title mentioned above, you have the chance to play Age of Mythology, Empire Earth, Monster Truck Madness 2 and even Quake II. Although the servers aren’t always full, and not all the games are popular, you can always find at least two or three games to play at any time with strangers of friends.
Practical and easy to use
In essence, Voobly is a chat client with rooms that are focused on a particular game or expansion, where players can create and find servers to join. If you’ve used any chat client before, Voobly should be very easy to make out but it that’s not the case, then have a bit of patience and go through the help files.
After a few lines of explanations, Voobly becomes a cinch to use, and you can start playing in no time. One thing that you should be aware of is that Voobly doesn’t provide the games for you to play. You need to have the titles it supports on a CD or your hard drive, and already installed.
Voobly will provide a series of patches for every version of the games it supports but those are more of anti-cheat solutions than game enhancements.
Get your AoE on
To wrap it up, if you’re looking to play a bit or a lot of Age of Empires and others, Voobly is the app to have and the place to be. It’s easy to install, games are constantly available and.. you can play AoE!
