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.

This game is really bad. It doesn't recognize the correct language (it appeared in Spanish instead of English) and the gameplay is boring and uninspired. Though it has pretty graphics, the animations and effects are not up to them. 0/10 would brush my teeth with sandpaper to avoid playing it again.

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!

I got this game as part of a bundle, so i can't complain too much as it's hardly left me out of pocket, however i feel sorry for anyone who has paid full price for this game.

I'll confess it's not 100% garbage, i mean, i played the whole game through each level for about 5 hours, across a few days, but i spent the whole time just waiting for something more, but constantly feeling restrained as if there was very little choices to make and it was a very clear path to follow.

From the video preview i would say i enjoy games like this, i like the sort of management you get in games like this, and there was a slight notion it would be quite childish, however i held out in the hope that the game play would be a good way to satisfy my strategy cravings.

As a base note this game was just nothing but disappointing and a little insulting.

I wouldn't recommend this game to any adults... it's an older child's game if anything.

Similar to games like Buil-A-Lot, Royal Envoy, My Kingdom for the Princess!

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.
