Reviews

“There’s a plenty of complexity within this game, so boredom should be out of the question.”
4/5 – software.informer

“I found Hero of the Kingdom to ultimately be something all its own – a cross between a hidden object game, an RPG, and a point-and-click adventure – and it wasn’t at all hard to lose hours lost in its curious little world of wonders.”
Gaming-way

“All in all, Hero of the Kingdom is a charming adventure game that is well-suited for those who want to relax and take part in an epic story without having to worry about scores or time limits.”
4.5/5 – Softpedia

Click here, click there. Linear story. This game is FAR OVERRATED.
BUYER BEWARE, please know that you are buying a linear, economic clicking game without any RPG elements.
This is like an interactive childrens book, no disrespect to the devs.

This was a Fun game to play.

I bought it on sale, and it was worth every penny. Took me aprox 4 hours to complete and I managed to complete every acheivment :-D

If you have a couple dollars and 4-5 hours to spare, try this game, its a fun distraction :-D

I managed to get it while it was on sale and was very happy with this. Even at full price it would be a great game. This is more of a click story adventure than anything else. Quick game (about 4-5 hours) with fairly easy achievements. If you're trying to get all achievements though, be ready for the ultimate game of "I Spy". Good luck!

Fun game, more like a hidden object search than an adventure game. Puzzles are very simple but the graphics make the game visually pleasant and wothwhile. A fun couple of relaxing hours to complete the entire game.

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.

REVIEW
Hero of the Kingdom is an interesting thing. The game style blends elements of point-and-click adventure games, resource management/economy games, and role-playing games. It is extremely casual (I don’t even think you can lose) and relaxing, but also is rewarding. I can see how some people may find it monotonous, but I personally found it addictive and gratifying.

First and foremost, I want to underline the casual and simplistic nature of this game. I can appreciate an epic, immersive, huge-budget AAA title as much as the next guy; but I also really enjoy casual games for those moments when I want to get my Zen on and play something “lite.” This game is great for that kind of situation… but if you are someone who prefers the AAA epics, Hero of the Kingdom likely won’t tickle your fancy.

The game plays as a point-and-click adventure, essentially— with an inventory and a narrative. In order to progress (i.e.: complete quests) you must pass inventory checks that determine if you have enough of specific items. Thus, playing the game boils down to growing your inventory in two ways. By finding camouflaged objects on the screen and clicking on them. And by bartering with the NPCs; there are numerous profitable NPC-trading loops that can be used to make money and buy inventory items you need.

The narrative is extremely light; there are very few total lines of text. While it isn’t bad, it also is easily forgettable. But it does a good enough job creating a feeling of advancement and incentive as you complete quests. There are also a lot of well-spaced achievements (both in game and on Steam) that pop-up often to keep the game feeling rewarding as you progress through the campaign.

For those who seek more intense gaming experiences, you may find this game somewhat tedious. However, if you like tranquil, addictive games that are rewarding, there is a good chance you will enjoy Hero of the Kingdom.

This game was suprisingly a ton of fun. It's for a casual, laid back crowd.

Pros:
-Beautiful graphics
-Most quests were self expanatory
-Fighting style was fun, without being "overdone"
-Achievements really wern't hard to get
-When replayed, maps were the same, but differences to what was found
-Simple

Cons:
-Way too short for my taste, was hoping to dump more hours into it
-Some of the items you need "now" for a quest aren't found until way later, had me stumped quite a few times
-Achievements a bit too easy
-No replayablity really.

I would recommend this game to anyone whose laid back, wants a casual game that doesn't require a lot to do. Story line is easy to follow, good for kids. I recommend the Big Fish Gaming trial to check it out, if you're on the fence and not sure.

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).

Great game if you're looking for about 5 hours of fun. I was looking for a game to 100% fast and this game deffinetly delivered. (You can basicly just chill and listen to music while playing, so it makes it easy to grind out acheivments)

A really nice drawn clicker, with a naïve plot but still cute and adorable.
One more reason to recommend - a rather easy-to-perfect game

There's no gameplay. It is a series of "click here" and "now click here", without any option of doing something different. If you like visual novels, you might like this one. Just don't expect an actual RPG in any way.

Hero of the Kingdom is a very satisfying game...unless of course you can't find that last mushroom :P. All jokes aside, this game is an inexpensive, short game that was quite enjoyable. For a game that only requires about 2 hours to complete the main story, the point-and-click experience was worth every penny (of which there are not many required). For the completionist, many of the achievements require entire completion of finding one item in the game's world, and are quite satifying to get in the short time it takes. If you have a free afternoon and a few spare bucks, I would completely recommend Hero of the Kingdom to every gamer out there that wants a little bundle of fun.
