Well, if you've got a PC you start with a Town Centre etc. Firstly click on the Town Centre and get some villagers, when you've got your villagers you give them something to do like get wood, get food, get stone and get gold. To make them do something left click to walk around and right click to make them do something.
Your villagers can also build things and do heaps more stuff.
It's a really good game! I like Age of Empires 2 the most!
The game Age of Empires is a real time strategy game that is based on historical warfare. The game involves collecting resources, researching technology and waging war for domination.
Basic tactics you can use are employing a large number of labourers in the beginning of the game to collect resources quickly and research technology quickly.
Researching technology enables you to collect resources at a faster rate using the same amount of labour. Then remember that units in this game are designed on the principle of paper, rock and scissors; where one particular unit is weak to another, and the second to a third unit. Using the right unit against the right advisory can tilt the balance of war. Towers are also a good defensive option but in warfare offence is the best form of defence.
Cool game its about defeating empires and using your strategies to defeat empires.You can also build castles and many other stuff
