On first glance, this looks a bit like settlers.

It's not. It feels somewhat like a F2P title that somehow managed to get itself released onto Steam. There's no real fun to be had out of this one, I'm afraid.

Don't get me wrong. It's polished, the music is passable and apart from the slightly pathetic dialogue, it certainly seems functional... But the simple fact that the gameplay boils down to "Click here, watch as the same thing that's happened a hundred dozen times happens again, or don't click here and fail the level" really sort of ruins the experience.

It claims to be a 'fun time management/strategy game'. It's just a giant time-sink... You can practically smell the skinner box.

Don't be fooled by the Settlers-like screenshots. This isn't worth your time. Avoid.

Gameplay is linear and uninspired. It looks nice enough but the whole strategy boils down to clicking on buttons to collect resources, building placement on predefined plots, and resource and time management. The resource gathering forces you to click icons when they appear, that otherwise in most games is automated. You even need to click a button to have them get water when they are thirsty.

Enemies are little more than barricades that must be removed by paying a certain amount of resources making what passes for combat feel anticlimatic. In fact beating the levels I did get to left me feeling that way. I just had big desire to progress onward knowing that all that awaited was more resources to click away at, more monsters that would only cost more to defeat, and more buildings that would require unnecessary micromanaging.

In fairness, if your looking for something to eat time just slightly funner than staring into empty space, this might work for you. For the rest of us, I'd take a pass.

First impressions:

To say that Kingdom Tales is bad is quite the understatement. The game is absolute garbage.

Everything about the game is just… bad. I could not find any enjoyment in the title at all. The game feels more like a F2P Facebook game than an actual “game”. The game does do a good job with its graphics, music, and dialogue, but the gameplay is utterly terrible. The gameplay consists of time and resource management, that is all. It’s done in such a way that I couldn’t help but compare it to today’s Facebook games. All you have to do, as the player, is click and wait. This needs to be done over and over and over and over.

Can’t recommend the game, even if it were to go for $0.50. It’s simply not worth the bandwidth used by the game’s download, nothing else too it.

Kingdom Tales is a casual time and resource management game where you build establishments to earn money and other resources to complete missions. It's rather mediocre but still enjoyable until you grow bored of the rules that only slightly change over the campaign. At least graphics are pretty and atmosphere is nice and fluffy. So, what about the game aspect?

Basically, in each mission you'll establish a production cycle that earns you money that is used to build special structures and cut stones (the other resource). Stone is used to build money generating buildings and other structures. Money is generated by clicking icons that pop up when the building has produced a patch of taxes. Then your tax collectors will rush to bring the gold back to the castle. Profit!

So the mechanics are very simple and repetitive and approaching dull. Most everything happens with one or two clicks. A naive story of getting friendly with the dragons runs along by completing the missions of each level. Missions range from gathering enough gold to killing all the wild animals and monsters (which simply costs money and/or mana that is a resource unlocked later) to building certain buildings and upgrades. While the mechanics are always the same, they are used in many ways within the story: early on you'll be saving the tree of life, helping some druids and loading up ships for a journey.

The full completion of the game takes only several hours: for me this was less than 5. The game is rather unchallenging. There are 9 in-game achievements that would be nice to see on Steam as well, but they are very easy to attain.

It's a decent, though rather short time waster. Though I initially recommended the game, I've decided to revoke my recommendation because of the utter repetitive nature of the game that becomes boring half-way through. It was somewhat worth its discounted price though because the story was so cute.

if you'd like to test the game out anyway, a demo is available at

I would not recommend this game for anyone over 8 years old or who has ever played a game of this general type. It is kind of pretty, but what other reviewers have said: there is no game here. If you want a game where no choices are available or want something appropriate for a not-terribly-bright six year old, this might be a good choice.

Kingdom Tales tasks you to lead of a fledgling nation and travel the land in search of a legendary dragon. The game is best described as a 'real-time strategy game for beginners'. The game contains forty-five scenarios spread out over nine chapters. Each has a fixed amount of buildings plots in which you are able to erect one of three groups of buildings - Homes, Production and Magic.As you progress, new buildings are introduced, keeping the learning curve quite sedate. With only three to four buildings available in each category and most upgraded buildings having the exact same function as their smaller counterparts, there really isn’t much to learn. Of course, buildings require resources, as do workers. Gold is the primary resource, collected from the taxes on habitable dwellings.Each scenario has its own goals, be it collecting a certain amount of a particular resource, completing a certain number buildings or defeating whatever enemy units are standing in your way. Graphically, Kingdom Tales looks similar to the early 1990's title Settlers II. The settings are vibrant and colourful, the buildings are easy to distinguish and the menu system is clear and uncluttered.The audio is cheerful, with birds singing along merrily in the background as your peasants do their thing. Kingdom Tales is a game that feels as though it is much better suited to the mobile gaming crowd.The game is fun for awhile, but as you progress and realise that one level is primarily the same as the next, it begins to become dull. There isn't much substance to the game to make it appealing in the long term. All in all, Kingdom Tales is probably best suited as a way of introducing youngsters into full-blown real-time strategies than anything else.Overall 5/10.

Kingdom Tales is a time management game where you take on the role of a king and with the help of your assistant, you travel to the land of the dragons to forge a friendship between humans and dragons. Along the way, you encounter various beings and creatures ranging from forest fairies to trolls as you travel through their various lands to get to the dragons.

To be specific, this game is a building resource one. That means that for each level (there are a total of 45 levels), you must complete specific tasks which can range from building houses to defeating evil sorcerers to curing people who have been turned into forest animals. Although your main goal is to reach the dragons, you must also keep your subjects happy along the way which is why tasks are set for building them homes, providing them with food and water, etc. So there is some strategy involved in completing these tasks.

Now on to my review. As a fan of time management games, I liked Kingdom Tales and the graphics especially blew me away. They're quite beautiful and I recommend playing the game in full screen mode. (Also, if you play in windowed mode, it's a little difficult to read the small text.) The levels were challenging but doable. (I played this game in timed mode although there may be a relaxed, untimed mode as well. However, I don't usually play time management games in untimed mode since I tend to prefer a challenge.) The tutorial was very helpful to get you started on how to play the game. In addition, there are nine in-game achievements/trophies to earn. However, there were no Steam achievements or trading cards. Nevertheless, I feel that this is only a minor negative to the game. For me, it doesn't personally matter too much whether there are such features as long as the game itself is enjoyable, which it is.

Overall, I recommend Kingdom Tales to time management fans. It's a fun and challenging game. The in-game achievements will keep you playing for a good amount of time. It may tend to be a bit easy for experts of this genre but for those who are novices, it should be more challenging. I'm looking forward to playing the sequel Kingdom Tales 2. ^^

Surprisingly, I have found myself addicted to this game. It's very simple, yet fun. It doesn't take any skill to play, though.
You go through levels, to win the level you build houses and cottages to generate money,
which you can then use to build resource buildings. You have an unlimited amount of workers, which makes it too easy, and basically all you do is click. I read somewhere that there were a few glitches in the game, so far I haven't noticed anything except for a typo. (hehe)
I give this game an 8.5/10 on the "this is so ♥♥♥♥ing chill and relaxing" metre.

If you buy indie bundles, you often get games you would not normally buy, Kingdom Tales surely is one of those games.

Before playing, I pretty much knew what to expect. Kingdom Tales is a casual strategy game, you would expect on Facebook (but without the real payments ofcourse) or any browser game site. It's obvious, the developers targeted a young audience, so it may not be fair to review this as an adult.

Kingdom Tales looks cute but other then that the game only consists of clicking on icons. There's no difficulty and does't require thinking. A lot of languages are included in the game, so if you got some young kids, they might have a blast with this game.

Easy as a pie, short as your Johnson, pretty good music and sounds. Even though there are A LOT of negative reviews (which I've read after completing the game) I had some fun with the game. No, seriously. It feels like everybody is a winner in Kingdom Tales. The tasks are easy and the time management isn't THAT challenging (compared to other similar games).
Strong 6/10 for those of you who want a relaxing clone in this genre. Got it via bundle. No regrets. Cheers!

So far, I think it is a fun game. It is not perfect. I can see myself getting bored with it if I play to long in one sitting. But, I am enjoying it so far. I got it on sale and do not regret my purchase.

This is a totally avergae casual time / resource management game. It's not a deep simulation game and doesn't pretend to be. It's not clear why some of the reviews on this game compare it to much deeper sim games. Not a really fair comparison.

Anyway, if you're familiar with this type of game, Kingdom Tales is a completely average entry. The graphics, sound and mechanics are all solid but nothing really special. There's barely anything here in terms of story or characters but it doesn't get in the way. There is very little challenge to be had in this game. I only needed a handful of level re-starts to get the best rating.

So, yes, if you're expecting the next Civilization or Settlers, you're looking at the wrong game. On the other hand, if you're looking for another solid, if unremarkable, entry in the causal time management genre, then I suppose you could do worse.

Similar to games like 12 Labours of Hercules, and MOAI. The point is to grind your way through levels. It's mindless fun. Relaxing play. ~$5 is a fair price especially given replay value. You'll only like it if you like these kinds of games. If you do, this is one of the better ones.
