“There’s a plenty of complexity within this game, so boredom should be out of the question.”

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!

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.

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.

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.
