Once starting an event you map change for an amount of time in a little PvE Battle Ground. Waves of Enemy units will atack — to stop it you should not only kill them but also destroy special buildings and ending some quests.


In last years becoming very popular system of mobile games to attack offline enemy and defending own map is presented in Dark Forester. You can not only attack enemy forests, final version will give you a chance to fight agains enemy players on special Battle Grounds, Arena and Forest Events!


Be the best PvP Player in the World, Be the best defender! or be the best destroyer, killer! You dont like PvP, then be the best PvE palyer. Great rating system for the most every game moments.

«Мое мнение основано на Dark Forester alpha version»

— Интересная идея, дикая смесь многих жанров.
— В игре присутствует физика, деревья падают, баррикады разлетаются, трупы мешают пройти.
— Игра для России стоит всего 499 рублей, почти в 4 раза дешевле, чем в Америке или Западной Европе
— Полная декорация леса, также автор обещает возможность в полной версии разрисовывать пейзаж.
— Игру делает наш соотечественник в одиночку, за что я бы поставил еще один плюсик!
— Разработчик очень активен с community.
— Salesman

You have a village with the forest that you protect against your enemies. The Dark Forester is a wild mix of different genres. You control your goblin like in RPG, but you construct buildings, manage your forest, set the traps like in the good old strategy game.
