ngmoco's We Rule for iPhone hits Canadian App Store


Once again, a new ngmoco's game has hit the Canadian App Store first -- this time it's kingdom-builder We Rule [Free with in-app purchases - iTunes link]. Hey, there's no Hulu or Google Voice in Canada, so fair's fair!

Like all recent ngmoco games, We Rule leverages the social gaming element via their Plus+ network, and has in-app purchases for "Mojo" which basically speed up things like growing crops and building homes, so you can pay if you don't want to wait. In this case, Mojo can run from $0.99 to for 1 to $49.00 for 800. You don't have to buy it, you just have to be patient if you don't.

It seems like you do have to log in to play, however, which is handy since you can keep one game going over multiple devices (like your iPhone and iPod touch, as long as they're logged in to the same Plus+ account), but if you don't care about that and just want to launch and play on your own, it's a step you can't skip.

No doubt ngmoco is doing what they do best here, taking a popular category of game and making it their own -- and making it excellent for the iPhone OS platform. If you're a fan of these types of farming, kingdom building games, you'll likely be a big fan of We Rule.

Again, Canadian only for now, though @ngmoco is giving away codes to allow early US access on Twitter. If you download it -- or score a code -- let us know what you think!

Ton'o pictures and a video... after the break!

ngmoco's We Rule for iPhone hits Canadian App Store


If it isn't 4 the USA & China the rest of the world would have nothing the rest of the world are lazy.. USA&CHINA The Only places on earth that provide the world stuff so WTF...USA China USA China...

Its not on all app stores yet as they always test these things in canada as it has good demopgrahics for them, so they dont get thousands of bad reviews

What a smart way to make money - pay and you can beat you friends! Don't need skills anymore!!

Hey, I downloaded it and can't stop playing. The badge notifications hen crops and buildings are done is fantastic, and yes it was clearly based on Farmville, however it feels like Harvest moon fused with Sim City.
And you are correct, it was tested in Canada, its on the site for the app. Get it when its out, you will love it!

A great game! Similar to Farmville, but with that special touch that makes it fun. It's visually very appealing, and will surely soon be one of the most downloaded games!

Can someone tell me how to use mojo? I'm clicking at the top right corner where there is how many gold and mojo you have then it takes me to the mojo store... Help please :)

Great game.

@ Antoine... Mojo is used when you're making a building or a house and you want to speed it up.
You click on the construction and it says "use mojo".
If you have any, you can use it to skip the build time.

You can use mojo on crops to you click on the crops theirs mojo and a number beside it like 2 that means if you use mojo it takes 2 mojo

Yo! hey guys I was playing today but now the game says the server is down. This game is dependent on the server connection so no playing offline.

need more friends - I always have "idle" stores. candise1967 also add mellisis (he has a graveyard -cool idea). I've done the math and peas are the yop crop money earners....that is if you can go every 30 mins. to harvest. Servers going down made me not be able to deliver many orders today - sad. Sorry to those I let down....wasn't my fault.
