Storm8 is one of the big boys in the world of free text based iPhone MMO RPGs. Its format is legendarily bare bones, but is constantly adding features and updates to all of their titles. Free iPhone games like Racing Live, Rockstars Live, Pets Live, Kingdoms Live, World War, iMobsters and others have remained top downloads in different areas of the iTunes App Store. Though the trend has now lost some of its polish, somehow the depth of the games have maintained their popularity seamlessly. The success of Storm8 as a company is based on the same principle that it shares with the other free text based iPhone MMO RPG developers. It gives this iPhone game away for free and then makes it money off selling cheat points to rich players. These cheat points are purchased for real money from the iTunes' App Store and then used in the games to cheat your way though. Here is a look at how Storm8's point system works uniquely.
Like its competitors PlayMesh and The Godfather you still have to download and install the points. Lets follow this process though with Rockstars Live Reward Points. If you are looking to purchase Rockstars Live Reward Points you can search through them at the App Store, you can look at Storm8's library specifically, or you can buy them from inside Rockstars Live. Either way you will be linked to the location of the Rockstars Live Reward Points packages at the App Store. Here you can choose a variable size number of Rockstars Live Reward Points ranging from single digits up to thousands. This is very expensive, but you begin to get a deal the larger number of Rockstars Live Reward Points you purchase. Once you have bought the Rockstars Live Reward Points package you will sync it onto your iPhone and open it. Once you do your Rockstars Live account will open and the Rockstars Live Reward Points will be waiting for you.
The Storm8 model for actually using its points is like a direct synthesis of the PlayMesh Points model and those found in The Godfather or Zynga. Storm8 allows more options, like PlayMesh Points, but does not have as many viable ones. Instead you will have to be somewhat thrifty and limit your use. For example, if you have Racing Live Prestige Points to spend you are going to want to make sure that each one counts. When you are at The Agent spending your Prestige Points you are going to want to likely go strait for the money, especially if you are low on it and do not have the start up capital to really begin real estate investments. Since real estate will be your main source of income in Racing Live you need to get a fair chunk of change to get started. Like iMob Online and iDragon Online, Racing Live uses a Racing Live Crew Code system. The rest of the Storm8 library uses a similar friend code system, but do not maintain the exact Crew Code name. The easiest way to add other players to your crew is to share your Racing Live Crew Code with them, and find their Racing Live Crew Codes as well. When you enter in a Racing Live Crew Code you will have the ability to add them, and visa versa. This means that it is relatively easy to bulk up your Racing Live Crew Codes since you can simply use message boards online and social networking to spread your Racing Live Crew Code and find other available Crew Codes. Do not spend twenty Racing Live Crew Codes on crew members from The Agent, unless you are a hopeless case to begin with. Racing Live, as well as the other Storm8 titles, give a lot of ridiculous options for spending your Racing Live Prestige Points. You can change your class, which means what you are best at, for fifty Racing Live Prestige Points. There is never a situation when this is worth fifty Racing Live Prestige Points, so forget it. The same is true of wasting Racing Live Prestige Points on things like changing your name. If you do have the option to use Prestige Points to alter your stats then you can try this, but make sure that you are building toward a vision you have of your character's strengths.
Over all you are going to want to hunt for free points from Storm8 as much as possible. For example, Kingdoms Live Legend Points, and all Storm8 points, are very expensive. Purchasing Kingdoms Live Legend Points gives you a class advantage and takes the need for skill away. Instead you can hunt for free Legend Points as they will pop up all the time. Usually free Legend Points, as well as any other Storm8 free points package, will not come in the form of an update. Kingdoms Live and the rest have an internal update system that comes on consistently without large downloads. Instead you will often just find strange numbers of free Legend Points available for download at the iTunes' App Store. These free Legend Points and the like will often hit top lists immediately because using free Legend Points is a basic part of success in the game.
