Hero of the Kingdom ist ein Wimmelbild-Spiel mit einigen RPG- und Abenteuerspiel-Elementen. Man klickt sich von Gebiet zu Gebiet und sammelt dabei verschiedene Dinge die teils offensichtlich und teils versteckt herumliegen. Gespräche erfolgen durch Textboxen die man der Reihe nach durchklicken darf. Antwortoptionen hat man keine, sodass jedes Gespräch einen festen Verlauf hat und auch die Story ist sehr stringent gehalten ist. Diese ist im übrigen auch nur 0815. Ebenso der Sound der lediglich zweckmäßig ist. Er passt zur entsprechenden Situation bzw. zum entsprechenden Gebiet ist aber sehr simpel gehalten. Die Grafik ist auch sehr schlicht, fand ich aber vollkommen ausreichend, da es meiner Meinung nach eben in erster Linie ein Wimmelbild-Spiel ist. Die Achivements gehen recht schnell und motivieren zum weiterspielen, auch wenn ich mir noch ein paar kniffligere gewünscht hätte (z.B. mit besser versteckten Objekten). Nach nicht einmal 4 Stunden war ich dadurch leider schon fertig. Für 2 entspannte Abende hat es aber zumindest gereicht und mir irgendwie auch Spaß gemacht.
Wer auf freie Charakterentwicklung, ein mindestmaß an Aktion oder eine Interessante Story Wert legt sollte auf jeden Fall die Finger von diesem Spiel lassen. Wer nur ein Spiel für zwischendurch sucht oder eines, das auch nebenbei gespielt werden kann, kann aber ruhig zugreifen. Auch Wimmelbild-Fans sollten es mal antesten, insbesondere da es eine Demo-Version hier auf Steam gibt. Mit dem Kauf aber am besten auf einen Sale warten da der aktuelle Preis von 7 € absolut überzogen ist.

Eine gut gemachte Kombination aus Wimmelbild und RPG. Das Spiel ist kurzweilig, die Archievements sind überraschend schnell zu erreichen (was sehr zum Weitermachen motiviert) und in 4 bis 5 Stunden ist der ganze Spass bequem zu bewältigen (wenn man den 100%-Run haben will).

Zwar hätte ich mir einerseits gewünscht, dass das Game etwas länger gegangen wäre, andererseits hat die Kürze auch einen Vorteil, denn wer kennt das nicht... man investiert viele Stunden in ein wirklich gutes Spiel und stellt irgendwann fest, dass man eigentlich nicht mehr weitermachen will, weil man keinen Bock mehr auf die 150ste "Hole Dies oder töte Jenen"-Quests hat.

Absoluter Pluspunkt sind auch die wirklich gut gemachten Übersetzungen - was bei einem derart kleinen Game nicht unbedingt üblich ist.

Der Preis scheint mit 7 Euro zwar auf den ersten Blick etwas hoch, aber immerhin gibts 6 Sprachen und die Entwickler stecken die Erlöse offenbar in die Entwicklung eines zweiten Teiles (siehe Greenlight).
Wem das Spiel trotzdem zu teuer ist, der warte auf eine der Steamaktionen - das Game wird dann meist für 1,74 Euro (75% Nachlass) vertrieben.

Fazit: Schöne kleine Abwechslung, die absolut zu empfehlen ist oder anders gesagt: definitive Kaufempfehlung !!!

Nettes kleines, aber doch recht hirnloses Gelegenheitsspiel. Im Grunde kann man nix falsch machen, einfach nur klicken und alles wird gut. Dafür was es ist, ist es gar nicht so schlecht, doch leider gibt es einen Knackpunkt:
Das Spiel hat keinerlei Wiederspielwert. Wenn du es einmal geschafft hast, hast du alles gesehen und es besteht kein Grund mehr es je wieder zu spielen. Daher kann ich wahrlich keine Empfehlung aussprechen.

Das Spiel ist ne Mischung aus Point and Click, Abenteuer, RPG und Wimmelbild, ja es hört sich komisch an, funktioniert aber sehr gut. Das Spiel ist sehr kurz und ja es ist auch nicht fordernd und sonst ist die Grafik und Technik auch nicht so toll, die Story nur da, damit man einen Sinn hat, weshalb man spielt und die Welt ist nicht so groß. Hört sich schon ziemlich schlecht an, ist es aber nicht. Denn auch wenn viele Dinge nicht perfekt sind, vermittelt das Spiel immer noch eine gute Atmo und einen fesselnden Spieldrang, das Spiel hat einfach seinen eigenen Geist und das macht auch Spaß für zwischendurch

Überraschend schönes Spiel. Die Mischung von Aufträgen, Suchobjekten und Handel fand ich sehr gelungen. Die Bilder sind detailiert und winzig schön, was das Suchen nicht zu einfach werden lässt. Etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig ist der Monolog der wie ein Grundschulaufsatz klingt... Toll fand ich, dass man trotz Ende noch weiterspielen konnte bis man auch wirklich alle Errrungenschaften erreicht hatte und somit auch den 300. Pilz findet.

Wow, tolles Game :3

Es ist zwar auf eine Art wie ein "Wimmelbild", aber dennoch anderst und viel belebter!
Was mir am meisten Spaß gemacht hat, war das Suchen / Farmen nach Ressourcen und natürlich das Questen!
Die Story ist sehr schnell erzählt!
"Sohn sucht Vater ---> Hexer finden und töten"
Naja, doof erklärt, aber so ist es :D

Hero of the Kingdom ist sehr linear und man kann es sogut wie immer schaffen, außer man gibt sein Gold für Blödsinn aus, da man sehr oft (vor allem am Ende) Soldaten / Jäger etc. kaufen muss!

Was ich LEIDER schade finde ist, dass ich für ALLES gerade mal 3 1/2 std gebraucht habe :/
JEDES Tier erlegt, jeden Fisch gefangen, alle Errungenschaften bekommen usw.

Zwar spawnen z.B. Eier, Pilze und Fässer nach, aber das dauert und ich habe keine Ahnung in welchen Abstand.
Ein paar Tiere sind auch nachgespawnt, aber dann irgendwie nie mehr :D
Wahrscheinlich passiert dies nur, wenn man wenig Gold hat. Sonst säße man ja buchstäblich in der Falle :D
Ich hatte zum Schluss mehr als 6000 Gold (Bei 5000 Gib es die Errungenschaft), vllt ist deswegen nichts mehr gespawnt^^

Es gibt bei Kräuter sammeln, Fischen und Tiere erlegen 3 Stufen, die man durch eine besondere Quest erlernen kann.
Sollte man immer machen, da man so die "stärkeren" und "seltenen" Tiere erlegen / Fangen kann, die widerum beim Verkaufen mehr Gold bringen :)

Ich bewerte das Game trz 100% positiv, weil es mir sehr viel Spaß gemacht hat... trotz, dass ich es erst gestern gekauft habe :P

Der Preis 5,99€ ist bisschen zuviel, wobei ich das Game auf eine Keyseite billiger bekommen habe.
Man bedenke! Alles erreicht (Auch die Errungenschaften) und das in 3 1/2 std :P
Und leider hat das Spiel KEIN wiederspielwert! Einmal durch = Ende!

Solch ein Game wünsche ich mir mit mehr als 30 Std Spielspaß :D

So, dann werde ich demnächst den 2. Teil spielen :3

Kleines Meisterwerk für sich. Sehr Interessantes Gameplay. Bugfrei. 100 % Archivment relativ einfach zu erreichen, wenn man ein wenig in der Welt rumschaut. Nur im Early sollte man sein Gold nicht umbedingt rauschmeißen. Habs im Sale gekauft für 1,74€ und hat mich 4,9 Stunden bei Laune gehalten. War eine sehr erfrischende Abwechlung. Bewertung leider nur 10/10 weil ich hab nirgendwo Titten gesehen. :)

At first glance your average gamer might dismiss Hero of the Kingdom as an oddity, a curious game with minimal feedback and graphics and could be considered a time-filler, a placeholder title to play in between longer and more involved gaming sessions. To do so would be a disservice to the gamer and to Hero of the Kingdom, as there is a lot more under the surface than what first appears, and through the course of a short story, you will become, the Hero of the Kingdom.

If you enjoy your gaming more casual, and less intense, Hero of the Kingdom definitely has a lot to offer. The game interface is simple and intuitive, and yet it is also never obtrusive. All gameplay is directed by mouse clicks. The action takes place on simple overhead maps, and your mouse clicks naturally will flow as the story and the gameplay layers on.

The complexity of Hero of the Kingdom comes in its economy and the use of selling items of value or to trade for items of usefullness. Should your character require to pass a bridge that is broken, they may need to sell unrequired items to obtain the help, rope and other necessities to move further on. You will gain skills such as fishing and hunting, with simple mouse clicks taking all guess work out of the equation. You either have the equipment to do the task, or you don't. There really is no challenge here.

This laid back notion is continued with the minimal music and sound effects. Both are equally pleasing, but ultimately forgettable. There is nothing about the game, from the gameplay, to the audio, that really stands out. It is all as inoffensive and flavorless as can be possible.

In many ways, Hero of the Kingdom feels like a slightly improved Facebook game, without the social interaction. Certainly the gameplay harkens back to that mindset, and without any kind of graphical flourish, could easily be mistaken as one. Where it succeeds is that it layers on additional systems through hunting, fishing and flower collecting, while telling a simple story about a long forgotten evil that is uniting various minion cliches in order to hunt down the good people of the kingdom.

Hero of the Kingdom is a fun diversion that requires so little of your attention and so little of the gamer that one could forget that they were actually playing a game here and not an interactive click-a-thon. There is enough gameplay here to recommend to the casual gamer but only to this subset of gamer might there be some enjoyment found.

Hero of the Kingdom is by no means a bad game, in fact, I rather enjoyed my short four hour journey. But there are a great many alternatives for your gaming dollar that demand more from the gamer, and the gamer should demand more from the creator. Hero of the Kingdom wouldn't be out of place being hosted for free on some website, perhaps with a banner ad - there just isn't enough gameplay to fully justify a purchase.

5/10.

Do you like clicking? No, do you derive intense pleasure from pressing a mouse button and watching numbers go up, for the sake of then being able to click a few more things and have those same numbers go up even faster?

Hero of the Kingdom in almost every respect is a cleverly disguised iteration on the bizarrely addictive idle games that have been devouring souls since it was discovered people on the internet will do absolutely anything to pass time. The main change is that unlike Cookie Clicker or Candy Box, Hero of the Kingdom doesn’t run by itself and has a (mostly) definitive end, tapped together with what could almost be considered a story and some minor exploration.

Beginning on a secluded farm, you take up the mantle of the world’s premier errand boy, poking your nose into everybody’s business in the hopes they’ll set you off on another menial task they couldn’t be bothered to do themselves.Hero of the Kingdom, in everything it does, is a personification of every tedious fetch quest you’ve ever done in an RPG, stripped of everything but finding and delivering the item and then being patted on the head and told you’ve done a great service to the kingdom.

I don’t think developer Lonely Troops had any doubts about what they were making though, and have deviously engineered the perfect loop of turning mundane tasks into accomplishments. Thanks are given for every small deed you perform, unimportant numbers are always going up, and the achievements pour out like candy letting you know no matter how simple the job, you did a damn fine job clicking your way through it!

And then before you know you’ve constructed a profitable trading cycle, picked the country clean of mushrooms, and risen up in the ranks to where no one would dare refuse your prying questions. Hero of the Kingdom would almost feel nefarious if it didn’t have a clear ending, so adept is it at roping you in and making it feel as if the entire game isn’t just cleverly disguised busywork requiring no skill and barely any effort.

But for something that is fine letting you go after a few hours, I was fine indulging Hero of the Kingdom and its exploitation of a basic human need for self gratification. I don’t think it’s a good game, but it’s an easy way to waste some time that won’t hold you hostage past the point of some mindless fun (for lack of a better word).

Options include separate sliders for sounds, 10 languages to choose from, Full-screen or Windowed, and whether or not to use profiles (that's a new one to me!)

Right away you'll see that you can access the main menu via the top right corner of the screen. As you progress you'll end up with something in each corner, as follows:

Hints - Bottom right corner
Insta-travel Map - top left
Inventory and health - bottom left

What I really can't figure out is what kind of game this is. I can't pigeonhole it in a single genre. It has RPG elements, in that your character learns new skills and abilities as you progress; there are useful items scattered about on every screen, which is reminiscent of a hidden object game; and it's an adventure with strategy elements... What it's NOT is a click-fest. There's no chaining, and no rush.

As I mentioned above, some items just need to be clicked on, hidden object-style, something I didn't realized until about eight screens into the game. "I need (x-item), why can't I find someone to buy them from??" The answer is that you need to gather them yourself. New abilities will allow you to find new items in your environment, so you'll want to revisit scenes often, and be sure to click on anything that looks unusual!

We lose energy (health) when we do tasks, and this energy can be restored by staying at one of the available camps. At each camp you'll eat a different type of food before you go to sleep, and this means a varying amount of health restored. At one point I had over 30 health, so I don't there's a cap on how much health you can have.

Don't be thrown off by how easy everything is early on. The game is pretty isometric when it first begins, but once you've explored a few screens, you start to have some freedom to choose your own tasks. Will you just chase the main storyline, or will you explore every nook and cranny and do all of the side-quests? Will you try to get all 38 achievements, or only do what's necessary? The choice is yours! Once you finish the game, you CAN go back in to try and get those awards, which is really nice.

Hero of the Kingdom which took me about 8 hours to finish with all of the achievements, and I absolutely enjoyed my time in the game. Recommended!

Awesome strategy game. This is second strategy game in my life which I liked for real. It is so addictive and I will for sure buy second part of it. Story is nice, ambient music is relaxing and graphic is much more better then I expected (better then it looks like on this Steam's screenshots). I am really fascinated with this game and from me it has note 10/10.

I got this game in a bundle and originally had it in my trades list, however, I decided to give it a try because I needed a mindless, time-filler in between games. I was pleasantly surprised by Hero of the Kingdom, and was happy to have given it a chance.

If you like super casual, short, adventure games that are less action-oriented (the game's main mechanic is item/resource management), then you will enjoy this game. It is easily beatable in less than 2 hours, and within 4 hours I had farmed all of the achievements.

The aesthetics are nice - the backgrounds are well-done and the menus/feedback are non-intrusive. The music and sounds are good, adding an appropriate feel to the atmosphere. The story and pacing of the game allow for a very mindless, non-taxing gameplay experience. After playing through a lot of time-intensive, mind-numbing games, having casual alternatives like Hero o the Kingdom is always appreciated.

The controls are extremely simple, as everything is done through mouse clicks. The tutorial is quick and painless, and the learning curve is mostly minimal - the most difficult element being proper item/resource management. It is pretty challenging to actually "fail" in the game, as there are always options for you to acquire more resources, even if you find yourself suddenly depleted of everything.

Gameplay is mostly linear and follows a straightforward formula - in order for you to progress to area X, you need items Y and Z. Item Y can be obtained by either buying it directly with gold, or by harvesting and crafting components A and C, Item Z is a side-quest reward. Variations of this formula occur, but the general concept is to have the appropriate items for each mission. Any form of resource harvesting (ex: farming, hunting) requires health points (and usually some other item(s)), and you are able to accumulate an infinite amount of HP if you keep resting.

For achievement hunters, this game is pretty easy to achieve 100%, however, a large amount of time will be spent finding small objects (mushrooms, crates, etc) on the screen. I had to do this in bursts, as my eyes and brain would get tired of searching through each level.

If you want a casual, non-demanding break from your typical games, then definitely give Hero of the Kingdom a try. I've played web-based games on sites like Newgrounds and Kongregate since I was a child, and this game has similar appeal as the quality titles you can find on there.

I normally try not to mention game price in my reviews, however, I would recommend most people to wait for this one to go on sale, or at least be bundled (as it happens often).

Recommend!

Cheers,

Short, casual, relaxing game. It's like reading some children's booklet with a fantasy story inside, though bit more interactive of course, with some point and click adventure/hidden object gameplay. You go around, talk to people, do quests, trade resources (food, ingredients, gold etc. including bit more abstract resource like strength), push story forward, though generally don't strain yourself much as the player.

Don't expect replay value or any challenge besides some pixel hunting for last few 'shrooms or crates if you want 100% the game. But it brought me to a happy place for a few hours :)

Quaint like an elderly lady's bungalow filled with many past adventures and expeditions, the attractively detailed land in Hero of the Kingdom possesses the old-fashioned quest-orientated method of play that I have yearned for through many wishful Steam purchases but had yet to truly discover until now.

Hero of the Kingdom ranks highly in my gaming library as one of the most satisfyingly rewarding games I have played on Steam to date. It is most certainly one of the top 3 which I eagerly gave myself an auspicious pat on the back for buying. At $1.49 (75% off) it is money well spent. Completion only took me two days totalling 8 hours or so (didn't bother to quit game when taking dog for a walk). The game play is therapeutic and healing as even with a generic storyline, the long but seldom arduous line of quests are gratifyingly addictive. If you enjoy RPGs as I do and rarely skip side quests as it is half the fun, then I highly recommend this title.

The controls are as easy as can be and I can't honestly admit this is a strategy game as it does not give the player a chance at failure as you will see if you play it. It isn't a game to test your gaming skills but a chance to relax from more demanding games. Out of games you can use to relax and enjoy like you used to enjoy games as a child, it never feels like a waste of time or is uncomfortable to play in terms of time or effort of lack thereof.

Hero of the Kingdom is my idea of a perfect holiday.
When I first booted this game (being my silly little self) I truly believed, despite the title being "Hero of the Kingdom", that I would be taking care of Father's farm for the duration of the game play as the atmosphere was immediately soothing. Luckily, this tranquillity is carried onwards as there is no concept of time and you can go as expeditiously or leisurely as you fancy.

ACHIEVEMENTS, GUIDES & TIPS
Despised styles of achievements that I have become quite feverish about are those consisting of sending a player on wild goose chases where the goals lack relation to, or impact on the story. Luckily, this game is short, straight forward and sweet with every single achievement. You don't feel like you've wasted time getting achievements for the sake of achievements as it tend to be with some games which take away from the enjoyment. You will have to finish close to all of the activities provided in-game to finish all the achievements. I dislike looking at guides so am usually much slower than other players at finishing any set of tasks in-game but this game didn't need any guides at all. There are easier methods of finishing the game which you will eventually find out on your own but every feature and quest is well thought out by developers that you will not have to look at any playthrough or spend an exceedingly long time pondering variations of.

Spoiler Hints (It’s likely you’ll realise on your own like I did so won’t need the info, hence the format): You can buy grain, convert grain to flour, get bread from flour and sell that bread to a farmer's wife for minimum profit which will accumulate. Check this well written guide by The Fox in the community hub if you’d like to know more. When you progress farther and get to town you'll find a smuggler (in town to the right of screen with no indicating icon) which you can click on to buy poison from them, afterwards selling said poison to a master hunter in the woods also reachable at a later stage. This is a faster way of earning a profit through the market. The prices of items vary depending on who you're buying from/selling to, so keeping note of price ranges will add to the fun. When you start finding more treasure and jewellery which you can end up selling to one of the shops in town, you will no longer need to trade as much. Once you get to the "let's hoard money" part of the game which urges you to trade, it will ultimately feel less fun for obvious reasons (repetitive trading to add gold) so don't use it too much until you absolutely feel you need to.

You will need to find a very small number of hidden characters that are in plain view, just without icons near them which you will have to manually activate (click on people and sometimes they'll talk back with no warning ;D ). There will be new items available to find across the map in the form of "hidden objects" so if you enjoy hidden object games, this will be a blast and quite easy. I have enjoyed my fair share of hidden object puzzles so it was extremely easy to keep an eye out for various types of items that I needed to find to finish achievements. It's different for each player but you may end up lacking 1 or 2 items of a kind etc and spend some time looking for them. This is only natural as it is with all hidden object games. The last or last couple you're looking for are hardest for you to spot which is why they'll end up the last ones. Don't fret and go through the map slowly a few times. Click on various areas that you'll become accustomed to as "loot points" on the map such as forests, cliff sides and lakes away from camps and village areas where people are stationed or reside in. It is definitely a game where you'd want to finish the achievements for the added content at least as the game itself is short. The challenges are not always a walk in the park especially if you do not use the easier trading methods for extra gold but you will undoubtedly complete them like the way a fantastic game like this should be played. Btw, the blacked out parts are spoilers, not cheats as they do not exist and are thankfully unnecessary in this game (not that any should ever be used for any game). I do not finish any of my games quickly so the fact I finished it in two days adds to the realisation now that it was neither tirelessly demanding nor boring enough to put aside for a while like the majority of my library. It was such a simple yet entertaining 8 hours that I started writing this review after I finished it which also says a lot about how much I enjoyed the title considering my crowded backlog of games awaiting review (the majority of which I evidently did have fun playing). When the words "The End" reached my screen, it crossed my mind that this game felt like a demo for it's sequel, Hero of the Kingdom II. That's how much I enjoyed it and how much I am ready for more.

Nice casual game containing a bit of resource management, a bit of hidden treasure hunting, a simple fantasy story and covers everything in graphics similar to older HoMaM games. It's not challenging by any means (I think you cannot die). But if you don't exect much, you can be surprised that it's not as shallow as it seems on first sight.

Note: It's very possible to get 100% achievements in one gameplay, if that's your thing.

Would I recommend it?
Free, bundles, less than 3$ ? - Yes.
5$ - well.. are you sure you have nothing better & deeper to play?
more than 5$ - probably not. It's casual, you finish it in couple of hours and there is no reason to replay it.

I enjoy a lot by playing this game. It was more than I was expected.
Non replayability makes this game a bit short but it worth every dollar expended. I will get the second game without any doubt.
Just try to complete all achievements and have fun!!!

It's a point and click game, with a very good story that makes you want to keep going to find out what happens next, never gets boring with too many side objectives, has nice art style, and enjoyable gameplay.
Took me about 5.7 hours to finish the whole game, including looking for all the collectables.

I came across this while trying to curb my game expenditure by trawling the depths of the cheapest games on steam and the fact this review (and many of the steem reviews) is positive reflects how cheap/bundled this game often is. It's a simple, short but quite well done little time-killer that might appeal when you are in the mood for something slower.

You progress through a series of reasonably pretty full-screen maps. Each one you visit might hold a handfull of missions plus perhaps a merchant, tradesman, somewhere to rest, etc and will definately hide a number of hidden objects to find. Once you unlocked each screen you can return at any time to use the merchants, finish side quests or pick up any hidden objects you missed.

The story is standard fantasy fare but is fine. The graphics are ok for a game so much about staring at the screen and set the mood well. The game play is good initially though starts to grate and grind a bit in the later stages even in a comparatively short game. For example consuming food at a camp is essential to gain heart points (used to perform most quests/activities) which is accompanied by a pretty but time consuming little 'nighty night' graphic sequence. Very atmospheric the first couple of times but you need loads of heart points to get through the game and end up spamming the camp sites.

It is a game that you cannot really lose - instead you just kind of amble through it... That said, I did finish it... And I did hunt about a bit for the hidden items before finishing the well-flagged final quest... And I paid £0.69 for 5 hours gameplay... Overall that makes it hard not to recommend.
