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.

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 up your army. To do it, you'll engage on mighty battle against various villains, taking turns on a bewejeled-like game who's been created to simulate battle... And it does it nicely! I know how it sounds, I have to experience it to beleive it.
Engaging gameplay, good art and a delicious twist to two well-known game mechanics. Will keep on playing so I can tell you more about this good game in the future. If you can't wait or don't want to rely in some dude's opinion, grab a couple of bucks and buy it, you'll get nice value for your money if you like the genre.

Very nice and quite addictive game. Match 3 with a story and little strategy elements. Player can choose between two heroes (female or male, each has only one avatar, so player can't change the look of his hero). Story is basically about good fighting against evil (don't want to spoil it). As the player explores the world, the're are relics and troops, that can help to fight.

What I don't like about the game is that it crashes occasionally. Disabling Steam Community alerts helps a lot, but I'm suggesting saving the game from time to time to avoid sudden freeze and necessity of repeating some fights.
Speaking of saving. That's another minus of the game. Game has only "Save an Quit" (to the main menu) option, so if player wants to play after saving, it's necessary to pass through the main menu over and over again (quite frustrating over the time).

Anyway. I recommend the game to everyone, who like casual Match 3 games with mini-games and challenges.

Too much randomness, too little skill, and frequent stalemates where the best move is to deny your opponent play. Boring except when it's frustrating. Get the original Puzzle Quest, or Gyromancer, but not this.

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.
