I'm so glad I played this. After becoming a CSGO/DotA Addict, THIS GAME re-kindled my love/passions for gaming..

+ Amazing Story
+ Amazing Soundtrack
+ Non-Linear gameplay
+ It's not frustating, not extremely challenging
+ Relaxing, Casual, Fun
+ It's everything I want in a game. A game should be fun to play, something which you look forward to, which excites you even after a dull and tiring day.

- It's a little slow sometimes.

Rating: 9/10

If you're in my friends list and can't afford this game, i'll give you some bucks to buy this. BUT please do buy this game.

There's full of positive reviews about Hero of the Kindom and mine won't be different..

Personal Rating: Fun and relaxing, i enjoyed it so much.
Classic Rating: 8/10

This short game is like a point&click adventure with hidden objects: its simplicity, clever logic, beautiful setting and storyline really impressed me. I can't find anything bad about it, it's very rewarding for the loot you can find and achievemens are not too hard to get, even if i finished the game before getting them all - but i really do not mind it.

I bought this one on a bundle but i would recommend you to buy it even at full price, because it's really worth the money.

For a mere 10 cents I spent on this game (from Indie Royale bundle), it's a neat one.

Game's incredibly simple, a point and click with RPG and hidden object element. You won't be hard pressed by timer to complete quest, can be done at your pace. There's a grinding involved to get gold, and admittedly it's a bit boring to do quest repeatedly but I think it's a minor problem in a bigger picture. Basically it's just collecting resources like meat, flavor, fish, gold etc and turn them in for rewards and next objectives. You'll also be looking for some items in your screen and click on it to get the items (hidden object element). Overall mix, it's pretty fun.

Story is so so, a boy that is gonna save the country from Evil invasion. I breezed though the dialogues anyway... moreso, The Ending is a mere 'horrayyyy for the hero' and just like that.

Replayability... none. Beat it once and ain't gonna look back.

To complete the game it won't take long, three or four hours you can do that. Maybe six or a bit more to fully complete achievements - I can't be bothered to do that though.

Overall, for a bundle game, this one has a good value. Recommended 7.5/10.

Hero of the Kingdom is a neat little Point and Click game that combines the classic Hidden Object genre with some light RPG elements, quests and resource management. The game was developed by Lonely Troops, a Slovakian Indie studio consisting of 2 brothers.

STORY
Without going too much into detail, the story is pretty generic weak-boy-saves-the-world material. Bandits burn down your house and kidnap your father, so you set out on a quest to rescue him, find out what the bandits' motives are and put an end to all evil to make the kingdom a peaceful and safe place again. Add magic, ghosts, talking frogs, goblins and lizardmen to that and, well, there you go. Nothing spectacular or innovative there, but gameflow-wise it keeps the boat afloat, so that's at least something.

VISUALS
Graphically, the game may as well be from the 1990's era of simulation games such as Anno 1602 or Age of Empires, which isn't a bad thing at all. The enviroments have loads of details that you often only see at a second glance and it's quite cool to discover new things in areas that you have already visited many times. However, do note that the enviroments are absolutely static - they are basically drawings with quest/action markers on top of them, so you won't see cows eating grass, fishes swimming around or anything like that. The best you get is some minor animation effects for water and smoke, but that's about it. If anything changes in the enviroment like, say, a NPC is moving from A to B, he slowly fades out on A and then slowly fades in on B, so there aren't any actual animations for anything. While that's no deal-breaker for me personally, it surely would've been awesome if the game felt a bit more alive and actually more like a sim rather than a P'n'C game with rendered backgrounds.

GAMEPLAY
The game is basically a Hidden Object game where you can freely move around between the various locations to explore them and hunt, collect and harvest goods that you'll eventually need for quests, trades or tasks. All items that you gather will be put into your inventory and you decide whether you want to sell them for gold or trade them for other items that you might need for a certain quest.

All interactions such as hunting, fishing, harvesting or fighting cost resources in the form of knifes, arrows, bowls, fishing rods, swords, shields etc. and if you have a bow but no arrows, you can't go hunting. While the various tasks require various resources, all tasks require a certain amount of health points (similar to Action Points in turn-based games). They basically represent your stamina and if you have depleted your health, you can't finish any tasks until you replenish it again. This is easily done by taking a nap in a tent, camp or inn. The different resting places require different resources: while you need fruits or meat to sleep in a tent or a camp, you need hard gold to sleep in an inn. In return, you get rewarded with the most health points out of the 3 resting places because it's more restorative to sleep in an actual bed rather than in a tent, obviously.

Generally, managing your resources is an important part of the game as you need to think ahead and estimate whether you might need certain items later down the road. If you sell everything right away, you most definitely will have to re-purchase the items in order to complete tasks or quest. On the other hand, if you keep absolutely everything in your inventory, you might not be able to purchase required items that are only sold for gold - simply because you didn't earn any gold by selling stuff you do not need.

Other than that, it's basically back and forth tracking between the different locations to look out for new or updated quests and new activities, which often only spawn after certain quests are completed.

PLAYTIME & REPLAYABILITY
Beating the story took me roughly 5 hours, however, the largest chunk of playtime is dedicated to finding the large amount of hidden objects/resources and doing various tasks to gain even more resources. The actual story itself makes only a small piece of the pie.

For me personally, the game has only very little replayability. Once you've beaten it, you've beaten it. There's no real point or incentive to come back to it again, especially since it's easily doable to get 100% of the achiements in a single playthrough if you just take your time and don't rush from quest to quest.

CONCLUSION
Hero of the Kingdom isn't flawless, but the visual appeal, the relaxing atmosphere and the simple yet interesting gameplay makes this a decent game for a casual evening when you're not in the mood to shoot and kill things on the screen.

Not the most complex game out there, a simple hidden object game with light adventure game elements. About four or five hours long, perfect for a rainy day or something to keep the kids occupied with for an afternoon.

Although it took me just 3 hours to 100% this game I enjoyed every minute out of it. It's a nice mix of hidden object game and adventure with a lot of trade and involved.

It doesn't give any replay value though, so one shouldn't expect to get more than 4 hours out of the game. The difficulty is low at best.

If you can get it cheap and you like adventures or hogs, then grab it. You will enjoy your time. Otherwise stay away.

This game won't thrill you, but it manages to be both relaxing and yet always keep you entertained while you search for stuff hidden on the maps or think of strategies to get the items you need for your quest.

a very well meant 6/10, I want to give so much more, but it's just not enough content and replay value. The game is great at what it is, nothing more.

there is something incredibly captivating in this little clicky shopping-gathering game.

story is cliched, graphics looks like something out of heroes of might and magic 3, entire gameplay consists of finding necessary materials for the next step, whatever that next steps currently happens to be. for a completionist, there is an additional level of pixelhunting tol find unmarked stuff.

yet, it held me firmly in its clutches for the 4 hours that it took to complete (~20 minutes out of which i was looking for the last mushroom, barrel and pearl).

recommend. definitely recommend.

If you know what you are getting into with this game, I think it hits all the right notes. It's basically a point and click adventure game, but instead of puzzles, you have resource management. You find/collect various resources in the world and use them to create/craft/barter for other items that may not be as easy to come by. As the story progresses (a simple story, old as time, but it moves things along), you open up new areas of the map in which to hunt, forage, and take on side quests for various NPCs.

All of the backgrounds are static, with icons representing the types of activities available - picking flowers, hunting bear, fishing, and combat animations are little more than a few 2D sprites wobbling back and forth. But that doesn't detract from the enjoyment. There is just enough of a "new stuff to get/see" drip, and the pacing is done well enough, that it never gets boring. You may find a vendor selling things you don't know what to do with yet, but it won't take long until you figure it out, or the story progresses to the point where it makes sense. There is a bit of a grind at the end of the game if you want all the achievements, but it's not a big deal.

The major story beats are advanced by having the right amount of particular resources - soldiers, healing potions, a weapon of some sort - to take on the battle or quest in front of you. Sometimes, finding the right resources is a little troubling because the map doesn't identify where anything particular is; however, the loads are fast enough, and you backtrack enough that you get used to where the crucial stuff is anyway.

It has a demo, so I'd check that out. It hooked me and I ended up getting all 38 achievements (most of which can easily be done by playing through it).

An enjoyable little game, I was surprised how much I liked it. It's a relaxing adventure that has some RPG elements mixed in. I was compelled to 100% the achievements after I completed the story, which I normally don't do with games, because I enjoyed it so much.

Never saw this little gem coming at all - It sure did surprise me very well.

Game is often offered as some left over in game bundles. I have not even bothered to look at the trailers.

'Adventure' 'rpg' says two of the descriptions - oh really? Graphically screenshots looked more like left overs from age of empires. Wrong - this game is 'hidden object hunting combined with strategy'. It also neatly re-defines what or who a hero is. In this game the hero is not a guy in shining armor being all angsty and killing eveything - instead he is a crafty man who hauls ♥♥♥ around the map and does chores, builds stuff, helps people, hires people to do jobs and manages inventory, gets some sleep and gets up early to continue where he left off - All of this 'working' allows him to progress with goals. For example attacking a bandit stronghold is quite different to what it's in games like this usually - first you need to make preparations and have the necessary people found before you can try it.

It took some 5 hours to get all achievements in this game.

Try it out. Definitely recommended.

Got it via Indie Royale, not expecting much and not having a clue what it was going to be like - and it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. A hidden object game with a late 90s/early 00s 2D RPG vibe going on (without actually being close to one, of course). Not frustrating, remarkably relaxing (the music & the sound effects help, and the graphics, while hardly high tech are pleasant enough so as not to tire the eye). It shouldn't take you more than 2.5-3 hours to finish the game, even with "distractions", and then, if you wish to return to it, maybe one hour more, 2 tops to clear everything that's left on the map and get all the achievements - it boils down to "grinding" at that point, but, somehow, it didn't feel that annoying.

It's very good for what it is, and while I wouldn't pay 7€ for it, with so many better, replayable choices in that price range, if you get it in a bundle or something like that, I'm quite sure you won't be disappointed.

I managed to snag this game from a bundle. It's a quaint little game with gorgeous backgrounds and art. It's not complicated or requires too much from you, just an observant eye to catch those eggs and mushrooms hiding on the screen ( curse my poor eyesight). It reminded me of those picture books I had where I needed to find objects on a page, so it's basically akin to something like that, only animated with nice sounds. A bit too easy, but hey, every game is different and can't be as masochistic as SMB in order to be good. :)

6.6/10 Worth it with the big discount, I'd be feeling a little cheated at full price.
Short but fairly engaging game, I burnt through it in a day, but for the price of a sandwich it was still pretty good value.
Very simple point-and-clicker with enough story behind it to keep you going. The major drawbacks are the writing has lost a lot in translation, and the level of challenge just isn't high enough.
There is no replayability to it once you've strained your eyes finding all the hidden stashes, so it's a one-shot deal.
If you enjoy cheap cheasy casuals, this may be for you.

A simple RPG game..

As someone who usually is heisting a bank or hiding from a Xenomorph, this is a nice break from my usual adventures. The game is pretty simple, I'd say it has some basic resource management skills needed to play, and that's it.

The story seems pretty good, I've enjoyed it so far. And some of the sidequests are pretty interesting.
Nothing much to say for this, a nice simple game to play! I recommend it for the sale price I got it at.

6 hours for a playthrough with 100% achievements

This game is nice.
Not once you have to hurry or click fast.
You are a guy who searches his father. And does things for people, so that the people help him.

There is a nice little story, a map for fast travel, which you do not really need but is nice to have, an inventory which you never check because the game is nice enough made so you don't need to do such things here.

You just click through, have a bit of fun and that is it.

Just to get some of the dumb buyers: IT IS OPENWORLD

Haha, yes it is, you can - after a while - pretty much decide for yourself what you do.

But what you want to do is get money to be able to do your quests.
No need to bake bread or trade fish or poison, you can get enough money with
hunting and fishing and the like.

But I traded, I wanted the money. I AM GREEDY! :)

Get the game, have fun for some hours, or for 1/2 hours for some days, no problem you can always leave and come back.

The short description would be: Do chains of quests. Again and again.
