Sick Addiction To World War for the iPhone

Illustration by Bob Learned

I have a sick addiction to the iPhone game World War. It’s a simple text based game where you earn money to build weapons so you can kill others. It’s a real-time game, meaning that it never ends, when I go off to bed at night I know by the next morning I will have been attacked many times and will have lost millions of dollars.

It’s this sick fascination with this game that I don’t understand. I do understand that it’s not the flashiest game in town, there really isn’t much to do on it and all in all it’s a waist of time. But I can’t stop playing it. I see it similar to an ant farm. It serves no real purpose but once you start watching you can’t look away.

Within two weeks of starting this horrible addiction I have battled my way up to level 30 but quickly realized that I was being killed by everyone else in the game. I have stopped gaining levels and have started hording money so I can buy bigger toys.

I could ramble on and on about how I play this game and think to myself while I write it what a dork I’ve become. But anyone reading this post that has never fallen into the World War for the iPhone trap really wouldn’t get it or care, while the people the do play World War are only skimming it for my alliance code.

Well here it is, JSJTRW, and feel free to post your codes below. If for some reason your code doesn’t post, shoot me an email, my spam-blocker must have stopped you.

I was addicted to iMob on the IPhone for about a month. I finally had to delete the app off my phone so that I could gain my life back.

Over the past month I've found, according to Google Analytics, that I'm getting an average of 30 hits a day with an average time of 3 minutes for keywords that have anything to do with World War for the iPhone. So I'm assuming that people are coming to this site, and to this post in general, to gather World War Alliance codes, but no one (other than corey) is leaving their code. So I created a Forum for World War Alliance Codes. Visit the Forum tab above and navigate your way to the World War section. If your a fan of Rockstars Live I have a section for that as well.

Too lazy to scroll to the top and click Forum, then click this link, http://tinyurl.com/yflfcrd, and go straight there! Don't forget to tell your World War or Rockstars Live friends about this, and please add your codes.

My Friend Elliot introduced me to this game in August 09 and at first I didn't get it. After he guided me through the first 10 levels, I liked it and played it often. At level 20 I started getting addicted to it. Now Im at Level 66, after 4 months. Here's my alliance code: K7HXFH. Im a great ally and I'm supportful. Also, another great game is 'eliminate' by ngmoco;). THANKS

I've heard a lot of times that people really don't know what to do when they first start the game, so I've written The Beginners Guide To World War For The iPhone to help and the new players get a jump start.

this f*cking game is taking over my life, it is addictive as hell. my wife is kicking my ass about it. says i give the game more attention than her. she wants me to delete it ...

should i sanction her?

or am i really f*cked up now?

Some addictions are good, like your addiction to World War. I think you should sanction her, but I advise you to beef up your defenses before hand...

Whatever you do, don't delete it! It may seem small and petty now, but if you give in to this one small thing you'll find yourself in 5 years in the passenger seat of a grocery-getter, listening to soft rock on your way to an exciting night at the mall. Take a stand now so you don't have to pay for it in the future!

You forgot to leave your code!

I don't think any available defenses will hold against my wife's fury. Maybe the nuclear missiles will do the trick in the future.

My code is 2WT7E2.

Hey, same here buddy. I am TOTALLY ADDICTED to this thing. Interestingly enough, never in my life have I been addicted to, or interested in, any kind of gaming, be it Wii, Nintendo, XBox, or any other game or computer console, I just didn't like gaming until I discovered World War. I might have to end up deleting the app from my iPhone before I get fired from my job and my wife leaves me. Now, let me go back to my game.

I know its difficult at times but we have to learn how to have self-control.

Don't let a game, which will earn us nothing, make us loose everything.

plz add me!

Damn, am I addicted to that game ^^

I'm in agreement with all. Nothing worldly gained from this game, yet I'm on it quite a bit.

To make more money in World War for the iPhone, it's not a quick process, but it can be done. The best way I found that it can be done is: try camping out on whatever level you're on. Just sit there and keep buying money buildings, when you can't buy a money building either buy a defense or save it until you can. It may not be the most exciting thing you've ever done, but it works, and to make it a little more exciting try to set a goal for yourself, for instance, try to have all of your buildings reach 1000 before you proceed to the next level. The reason I say to buy the defense buildings as well is they are nearly as important as the money, they will save your butt when you get to the higher levels, at least it's saved mine.

Let me know if you need me to explain further or if that didn't make any sense. I would be happy to go into further detail.

I messed up early on in the game, but learned from my mistakes, and now I'm sharing that knowledge with you so you don't repeat the same mistakes. Money, Money, Money! Defense, Defense, Defense. It's the name of the game. World War for the iPhone is a great game, but to be successful you have to play it intelligently.

Um, the thing is.. im lvl 10 & i earn very fast money… i got 100mils with 30 minutes… just my secret is that, i attack sanctions whose lvl are 50-200 & with bounty 8.5 mils on them…i lose the battle but i mostly kill them..

Once i killed a guyfor 100MILS at once too… i was lvl 9 i think… It’s so easy.. other wait months to get tmy money, i get their money 3 times tripled by my way..
I get very much losses but who cares if no one cant et through me on my own lvl than i dont really care.. I buy for the money Incoem & deffense both allways same much !

hi How you can get 100mil in 30 min can you teach me
