I will start by saying I had no expectations coming into this game whatsoever. I downloaded it with Xbox Gamepass forever ago. I didn’t even remember what it was supposed to be about when I decided to try it out today.
One of the first things I noticed was that it has a pixelated graphic style, which tbh I love. I thought the start of the game was a cut scene. I just sat there waiting. Eventually I thought to myself is it frozen? So I decided to move around on my controller and see if it had. Nope. Just needed to move my character right on through.
Suddenly I have a companion and light instructions started coming up. I was relieved because I had no idea what I was doing. 🤣🙈 Things began to start making sense and I started doing things on my own.
You are an heir to the throne. The last monarch or something. You are rebuilding the camps and making them stronger. You are defending against these things called the greed. The game play is all pretty basic. Reminds me of differemt kingdom building phone games meeting tower defense games. All about strategy and time. Because of this it had some very slow moments. If you are just trying to find a game to help you pass the time this game can do that for you.
I will also note this game will only give you the most basic instructions on how to build your kingdom from scratch. The rest is all you. I think a big part of the enjoyment in it is discovering everything for the first time on your own.
On the same note, after those initial instructions you are completely on your own. Meaning if you are stuck or can’t figure something out…you will remain stuck until you figure it out or die and have to fix up all that was destroyed.
I will state that I did get so aggravated that I closed the game and went on to something else. This wasn’t because of gameplay but because of bugs. There is a frustrating little bug where your builders completely disappear and you have to continuously restart the app to fix it. It gets old after a bit and eventually I just stopped playing altogether. Once this bug is fixed I’m sure it will be fantastic 😍😅
