Bejeweled with RPG and story elements. It's by far not great, but it is fun for fans of the game mechanics. Can recommend to Bejewled fans. Anyone else, better stay away.

Add me to the list of people who do not understand all the negative reviews. Granted it does not have the charm of the original Puzzle Quest, and the story is not as good, but I don't play games like this for the story anyway. In terms of the gameplay, I actually enjoyed this more than Puzzle Quest, because the battles seemed more strategic and less based on luck (although there is still some element of luck of course). The music is surprisingly good for this type of game; one of the rare cases where I didn't shut it off after ten minutes. I wil probably play this again at some point, maybe using a different hero next time.

This is one of my favorite Steam games. It was similar to Puzzle Quest 1 and 2, but I preferred the gameplay (sliding instead of the ordinary swapping) and the army-building strategy of Puzzle Kingdoms.

The game feels unfinished, as if the developer gave up on ideas and ran out of money before finishing everything they had planned.

All in all, the gameplay isn't interesting enough. There's no counter-attacks by the AI, so there's no real point in buying reinforcements, and overall the game just plain relies on too much static, uninteresting elements to hold my attention.

Also? The writing for this game is *horrible*. Absolutely atrocious.

A terrible terrible game in which the most perverse version of match-3 I've ever seen gives the player little to no control over the battlefield making it one of the most monotonous luck-based games I've ever played.

Puzzle Kingdoms is a match-three game with a twist. It has a story where you fight enemies by matching three symbols.

Puzzle Kingdoms is often considered to be an inferior version of Puzzle Quest. I disagree with that. Puzzle Kingdoms is the better version of the two due to various reasons. PQ feels drawn out, too random and has annoying things (such as respawning enemies). PK on the other hand is much more concise with its simpler gameplay.

One of the biggest problems with this game is that it can get very easy. PQ is completely different: the later stages of the game get unbelievably hard. The story is also rather cheesy but this is the case with every Puzzle Quest-series game.

My verdict is that this is a decent buy on a sale.

Developed by Infinite Interactive and published by Strategy First, Puzzle Kingdoms is yet another terrific title from their wonderful puzzle series of games. If you're a fan of match three, puzzle, roleplaying or any combination of the three then you'll be pleasantly surprised by Puzzle Kingdoms. The game is very fun, can quickly become quite addictive and provide you with hours of intense gameplay. From what I've read on various forums, many people who enjoyed the first title, Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords, didn't really seem to like the sequel Puzzle Quest 2 quite as much because it wasn't as heavy on the roleplaying elements as the original game was. In that matter, this title seems to be much more like the heavily preferred Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords.

The story, told through hand drawn art and silent dialogue is mildly interesting with a welcomed dose of humor sprinkled in to boot. One thing I didn't like was that the artwork wasn't nearly as great as the superb art seen in the previous titles but it gets the job done as far as storytelling goes. During your travels throughout the land, you will recruit heroes, choose different types of troops with which to build your army and lay siege to various kingdoms before conquering and adding them to your very own empire.

The puzzle battles, which are the highlight of this game are fantastic and have a new twist. You have the typical match three or more gems up and down but now you can also match gems in an "L" formation as well which adds a new degree of strategy to the gameplay. By matching gems you build mana to power your heroes spells as well as attacks for your troops weaponry. In typical R.P.G. fashion, as your heroes level you can choose which abilities to upgrade and equip many different types of loot in the form of spells, weapons, armor and relics with which to upgrade your forces.

The music and sound effects in this game, as in the other Puzzle Quest titles, are top notch and fit the gameplay perfectly. I've been a fan of puzzle games since I first started with Puzzle Quest 2 and although Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords is my favorite thus far...I can say that Puzzle Kingdoms is quickly becoming a favorite as well. Highly recommended!

A review from heart, for all those who need to decide if they want that game or not.
I am really supprised that this game has "Mixed" reviews. I don't understand why people
can possibly give any negative feedback about this game. Yes! I do know it's old. Yes!
I know graphics aren't the best, but back then nobody cared about graphics. I miss times
when You could spend days on one game, and be sad that it ended. I only did 5.2 hours so far,
and I think I'm not even close to the end. It is a bit hard to start the game, because it's so much
different than Puzzle Quest.

If You THINK it's Puzzle Quest game, then don't buy it.
IF You are open for a different experience, then buy it, because it's worth it.

Let me explain why this is not Puzzle Quest game. Mainly because Puzzle Quest was like Candy Crush game with RPG elements. This game has totally different mechanics, and in my opinion its harder than Puzzle Quest.

I gave this game to my friend, and he rejected to play it, because he didn't like the way You need to pull or push the lines. For me these mechanics are exciting, and I really love the way this game works.

I couldn't find any game that I could possibly compere it with, that's how different it is.

So, short version:
Do buy it if You are ready for a new experience, and You will be happy to try something "NEW".
I promise You that this game is interesting, and You will spend a lot of time in it.

Enjoy! :)

A fun matching puzzle game with a twist of RPG thrown in. It actually turned out pretty well and you can unlock a variety of heroes, battle units, and relics to support you in your quest as you fight your way through the different kingdoms. Your heroes level up through battles to learn new spells to support you. If you ever wondered what a matching game like Bejeweled would be like with fantasy elements and more of a story/goal to it then here it is.

Good clone. Underrated. In some shops for 0,70$, no glossy graphics, but better as some other.
Story, Quickbattle, nice battlesystem. Not perfect, but its okay. *7/10*

When I bought Puzzle Kingdoms, it was on a 90% Steam sale and costed me a buck and a half. Unfortunately, money isn't the biggest concern when it comes to a game's actual worth, the real valuable resource we truly pay when playing games is time.

Puzzle Kingdoms is a Bejeweled-like puzzle game with some strategy RPG elements thrown in. Now if you're not farmiliar with those match the shapes kind of games that's been flooding the web for the past several years, you're not missing much. The activity consists of endlessly and effortlessly moving shapes around in one way or another to group them together, and when you do a nice little sound effect plays and the shapes disappear to make room for new ones, manipulating your brain with constant small benefits to drive you to keep playing.
While doing a good job at cloaking itself from the fact, Puzzle Kingdoms is much like those games. The game provides you with "troops" you can buy and use which can attack and deal damage to enemy troops after you have matched the same shape enough times, and later on gives you more kinds of troops and different items which give you slight benefits. At first one may think the game has a neat twist to the formula, but soon enough one will discover that the game is just covering it's one boring mechanic- moving shapes around to group them- with much more distraction and brain manipulations than the other games of it's type, rather than adding any new interesting mechanics.
The game is insultingly easy, giving you a staggering amout of money to endlessly fill up your board with troops while the opposition never attacks you with anything bigger than what you already have. It forces you into painfully slow paced puzzles that makes you roll an invisible dice over and over again until you win, all for the sake of a story that is so obviously ment to manipulate you into giving any context to matching shapes it's laughable. The choices made in this game- the kind of troops you buy and the items you equip- have zero implication egainst an opponent that literally can't beat you as long as you deny him a specific shape to group together.

The game as a whole can pretty much last forever, and that is a pretty big part of the problem- it manipulates you to play it endlessly and effortlessly and in turn do nothing but waste your precious time. If a game does that it should at least have a strong point (Prime examples are Allan Blomquist and Kyle Gabler's "Little Inferno" or Edmund Mcmillen's "AVGM") or have some really solid mechanics to go with it so the player will have to [god forbid] think about the game.
As much the gaming industry wants to dany it, "time spent divided by money spent" is not a healthy way to measure a game's value, because that implies your time is a bad thing you want to throw as much of it away as possible. This game is just not worth your time even if it costed you zero dollars.
Please, do something and play something meaningful and fulfilling with that time, because your time is limited and it is worth much more than this.

I bought this game on the premise "from makers of puzzle quest".
But it is worse that pq galactrix. In puzzle quest you play to match 3.
Here you must play so that your opponent dont match it. And even so it is completly
random because of the tiles that comes from the borders.

What an addictive game! I wasn't expecting much, to be honest, but I installed it, played a bit, and here we are, 25 hours later. Yes, 25 hours for a single playthrough. Okay, yeah, I started over a few times early on, but once I got the hang of it I just kept going. The primary gameplay is match 3, with a slider rather than a swap mechanism. Each kingdom you conquer opens up a tavern and a ruin where you can find new relics, spells and items, and recruit new troops. To do this, you use some of the gold you've gotten in your warmongering, and then play a minigame. Higher level items and troops have a higher gold cost and a tougher minigame to play.

You can customize your newly acquired kingdoms with your chosen hero(s), troops, and relics, and use them in battles against kingdoms that you haven't conquered yet. You can outfit your hero with the items and spells you've gotten. All of these items have a color value and a points value, and each kingdom has either discounts or increased costs for using these items. (Ie, a kingdom might have lower point cost for blue and red items and troops, and higher point cost for red and yellow items and troops. Your hero's total cost is affected by his color and the combination of items and spells he or she has assigned.)

It's relaxing, but it can also be challenging, especially if you have trouble with the recruitment minigames.

Very interesting game. Requires thinking and concentration. So much of rpg through simply brained design. Pure 9 of 10 for puzzle.

An example of why you shouldn't mess with a successful formula. The dynamic match-3 battles of previous versions have somehow become dour, static matches which too often drift into tedious stalemates. The only good thing about this game is the music.

Puzzles. Kingdoms. Heroes. Battles. Pure Win.


I've never been a fan of puzzle games, so when I saw this one's premise I thought that maybe this was a puzzle game for me: think of Bejeweled meets Heroes of Might and Magic and you'll be close of what this is.

You're a hero, and have hero stuff to do. In order to kick some ♥♥♥, you'll need to build an army. To do it, you'll engage on mighty battle against various villains, taking turns on a bewejeled-like game made to simulate battle... And works like a charm! I know how it sounds, I have to experience it to believe it.

Engaging gameplay, good art and a delicious twist to two well-known game mechanics make this one an instant thumbs up. I have a really long pending game list to go through, but I’ll play this one again for sure. If all this picked your interest, grab a couple of bucks and buy it, you'll get nice value for your money.
