That was short and bad.
It's not hero of the kingdom, it's delivery man of the Kingdom II.
Also written by a 5 years old. Some scenes are so kitsch it gave me cancer.

7.5/10

Game Length:
This charming little game took about 6 hours to complete. I had fun clicking around and filling orders, but it seemed a little tedious after awhile. About the time I started to get tired of doing chores, the game was over. Any longer and I would have gotten tired of playing the game, but any shorter and I would have felt like I didn't get my money worth. So the game was about the perfect length given the style of gameplay.

Game Style:
You basically navigate from screen to screen using the available directional arrows. You do not control a character directly, but rather point-and-click various objects on the screen: townspeople, treasures, merchants, etc. Townspeople may have small quests or tasts for you to complete, or you may need to bring supplies to them to get a necessary reward. There is no time limit, so even if something seems dire, you can always leave and come back when you are ready. There is no real way to die or lose, only that you fullfil the item requirements to defeat an enemy; usually by hiring mercinaries and having the required inventory items to initiate the fight. At times, you may find yourself scrounging around the map to locate the items you need, circling the map 3-4 times before aquiring the items you need to progress.

I should mention that I was a little dissapointed at the battles in this game. As I stated above, simply filling an order with required goods will initiate the battle and defeat your enemy. There is no way to lose and there are simply no tactics at all. This could have contributed to the reason I started getting bored after awhile...

Game Art:
I really like the beautiful artwork here. The ocean water has nice ripples and appears to have depth. The forest and greenery looks lush. The characters are nicely done too. There are plenty of semi-hidden objects throughout the terrain that suit a point-and-click game well. The objects blend in nicely, but are just obvious enough that you don't get too frustrated looking for them.

Game Music:
The music is actually quite nice. It blends well and varies nicely between map locations. The music ramps up when enemies are present and becomes calm when you are safe. There are plenty of ambient noises that emerse you into the forest and ocean settings (birds, waves, wind). The quality of the sound and music is something I can't complain about; I rather enjoyed it.

Conclusion:
I may have considered giving this game a higher rating if I didn't start getting bored by the end of it. The longer it went on, the lower the rating fell. I think I would have given the game an 8.5/10 during the first 3-4 hours, but by completion, I landed at 7.5.

Hero of the kingdom 2 is exactly as almost any 2nd movie is.

It's not bad, a lot is bigger, more skills/things to look for, more gold found/needed, more things to craft/use, upgrade, and all that, but in the end, the big issue this game is having is: Most have seen it in 1 before, so it ALL feels old, redundant.

With Hero of the Kingdom 1, I feel like the build up was better. You started out simple, and each time, you got a little more to do. Here, you very quickly get A LOT OF stuff, meaning you won't really find or familiarize yourself with anything. Quests left unfinished, and a sudden surge in gold needed (to buy a ship, or kill two dozen zombies, including maces, shields, blue potions, and a few soldiers). It leaves you uneasy.

In the end, this still has all the qualities of Hero of the Kingdom 1, and is a good game, but if you play this after part 1, you'll come home to a cold shower. I do not recommend it to those players. If you can get this game first, enjoy it, fall in love with it, then play part 1, and it'll probably feel like a warm familiar blankey on a chilly day, sitting on the front porch with a cold one. (I mean a sprite for anyone under 21 ;) )

Nice game, kinda cute. Searching for items is made fun, little quests, not-so-hard bargaining to have enough cash. May be a little repetitive if you play it five times in a row which I didn't, but I still keep it for a rainy day. How this simple game still gave me a few shivers of serenitude amaze me!

This awesome little exploration / resource gathering/management game keeps the great things of the first installment and develop a new cool story with a few new features. These games are like a story that unfolds at your own pace. Here you won't find a lot of the structure you usually find in games like levels, time-based quests, the need to restart something... The challenge is to explore your surroundings in the best way possible with the resources you have, and work out your trades, purchases ans sales so you always keep the quests flowing. This makes for a very casual, fun and relaxing game, I really enjoyed playing both this one and the previous title.

It seems that the type of game Hero of the Kingdom I and II are is kind if a new thing around. In the forums, people were asking each other for similar games but none was found. Props to the devs then, for making something so good and that wasn't out there already. Really looking forward to HotK III.

The Hero of the Kingdom games can best be compared to the point and click hidden object games of Artifex Mundi. While there are no specific hidden object scenes, you do have to look for, and click on tiny objects. Another similarity is the backtracking to pass obstacles.

For example, a bridge is out, and you need three pieces of stone, a rope, twelve ocelot furs, an eskimo translator, and a toaster oven in order to repair the bridge. You remember that there was an old woman in a village a couple of screens back that offered to give you her toaster oven in exchange for a potion that will treat her husbands ED. You also know that a rural healer specializing in potions is in need of an attorney for his practicing medicine without a license case. Additionally, you met an out of work attorney, who will take any case as long as you can provide him with five hundred gold coins, and a "personal massage device".

Such is the recursive nature of this type of game, and although it can be frustrating at times, the bizarre Goldbergian machinations somehow appeal to my sense of humor. I mean, there is currency in the game, gold coins actually, yet so many transactions have to be completed with some random item the NPC desires instead. Imagine if you took your car in for repair, and instead of money, the mechanic demanded a live elk. Such is the world the Hero of the kingdom inhabits.

While I'm at it, I must say, this guy has got to be one of the most inept, clumsy heroes around, because it seems like every other time I use any sort of tool, it breaks. Going fishing? Oops. broke the rod, have to buy a new one. Harvesting flowers? Oops, broke the sickle, have to, wait, hold on, why did you even need a sickle to pick flowers? Anyway, you get the point. Mr. Hero is no Bob Villa, and if he ever asks you to borrow any tools, just remember that this is a guy who can break a piece of steel on a flower stem.

In conclusion, to sum it up, to summarize, to wrap it all up, to encapsulate, to distill, um, I forget what I was going to say. I guess if you like pointy clicky roundabout games, this is one and if you don't, it still is.

REVIEW
Hero of the Kingdom II 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 and relaxing, but also is rewarding. It is by no means an epic, immersive, high-budget AAA title, but it is a great casual experience for those who would appreciate it.

This is the sequel to the original game in the franchise, Hero of the Kingdom. It is essentially the same game as far as mechanics and gameplay go, with only very minor differences. This game has a more elaborate storyline and is longer, but it is still an extremely simplistic and casual experience (like the first). The narrative is not a direct sequel, so you do not have to worry about playing this game without playing the first.

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 II; and will probably like the first one as well.

I had the honour of being a Beta tester for this sequel to Hero of the Kingdom, I loved this game as much as the first, it is much like the original, gameplay is longer, good story line, great graphics, it is a game for young and old "I am (60)", this is a must have in your game library, if your not sure then download the demo and try it out, I give this game 10/10 and hope more follows

Hero of the Kingdom II, is a point and click adventure game, just like the first Hero of the Kingdom. Number II is more difficult than the first and it is bigger in comparison to the first game, this is from my experiences of playing both games and I have 100% both games.

I have totally enjoyed playing this game, it to me was very relaxing and pieceful, but at times became challenging but never frustrating, exspecially when you loose your way, and cant find what your looking for, when this occurred it was time to take a break and play again later. You also must remember to barter and trade, i found buying wheat and getting it milled, then selling it to the baker helped me accumulate enough gold to progress, so if your short of gold this is how I found best to do this, but there are other ways to do this aswell, with other items you come across.

If you enjoy point and click type games and have the patience to play them, then you may well enjoy this game as I most certainly did. But i will say, that this game is not for everyone, but again what game is for everyone, it all comes down to personal choices and your taste in game types.

Also how long a game takes to complete should not matter, i did not race through to finish this game, i took my time and explored the game making sure i did not miss a thing and kudos, i found everything and got my 100% Achievements tonight.

Also price wise, i believe its a fair and reasonable price to pay for this game type, this is my opinion anyway, but others may have differant views with regards to the pricing, there are always sales, so if your on a tight budget, and would like this game then wait for a good sale. :)

I'd like to thank Lonely Troop for this lovely game, i really enjoyed playing it. I will also look forward to more of your games in the future, and now i must chase those lovely emoticons for both games, they look awesome and i want them all, if i can get them all that is, Im sure i will. ;)

I don't usually play casual games, but there was something magical about Hero of the kingdom 1 that just caught my eye, so I had to get it. And I've finished it in one sitting, because I was enjoying myself so much. And now we have the sequel.

What is this game about?

Hero of the Kingdom 2 is pretty much a casual point and click adventure, but it has more to it, because there are some elements from roleplaying games, like collecting different resources, making multiple small choices and exploring new places. You play as the nicest hero of all heroes that ever walked the earth, spreading happiness and doing goodness around the world. It doesn't play like traditional adventure games, but it's the closest genre I can compare it to. It reminded me a little of these Fighting Fantasy books I used to own, except you can't really lose here.

Gameplay

Well, you point, click and do magic. There are a lot of hidden objects through the game, so among doing different tasks for people, you will also be collecting food and anything you can sell, because there are many items and tools you'll need to carry through. Some you can find, some you can buy. Game doesn't hold your hand in this, even if you are limited to your actions, you can decide what to do. Whenever you find hammer in a barrel, or you'll buy it and waste money, that's on you. In addition to items, you use stamina to do most of the activities, and you have to sleep to regain it. Nothing is entirely for free, so you have to do a little bit of planning. Game's pace is just good enough to keep you interested, you are always exploring, there is always something new to do.

Sound & visuals

Traditional painted 2D graphics are beautiful. It's a nice change from cartoony graphics many games utilize today, so you don't see this type of graphics too often. Because of that, the game has this timeless look to it. Music is decent enough to set up the atmosphere, even after listening to it for a while, it doesn't get annoying, and sounds that play whenever you do something are silly enough to become classic to me already.

Overall impressions

I just love how naive, upbeat and positive this game is! Compared to the first game, it's more of the same, bigger, better and just as enjoyable. If you've played Hero of the Kingdom 1, you'll love this one too. Surely it's not everyone's cup of tea, but there is something charming about this game that attract people I would otherwise never expect to play something like that.

It's not too long, a humble little game, it will probaby take you around 5-6 hours to finish it, but for the price, it's a steal. All those hours are packed with joy, so I say give it a try!

Basically, if you enjoyed Hero of the Kingdom I, this is more of the same, and when I mean more of the same, I really mean more of the same. The gameplay structure is mostly untouched, as is the UI/map/sound/etc. and that isn't really a bad thing here. This series is a causal resource-management set of games and the familiarity between titles makes it very easy to jump right into this. You'll be collecting x amount of items y and z so the miller's wife can sell you bread without skipping a beat.

The story is super generic fantasy and comes with a stiff English translation. The visuals are very nice and the style really works well. There are no annoying technical issues or gimmick gameplay bits to get in the way of you fetch-questing for the rest of the kingdom.

There are a couple of downsides, though. HotKII is a bit longer than the first game, but this is mainly because item amount requirements can get kind of sizable and repetitive at times. Building the boat is probably the biggest example of this. The other problem I had is that there is some pixel-hunting required at times for items that don't visually "pop" from the rest of the art and don't have an "action" command signposting them. There's only a couple of instances of you having to do this to progress but it can be quite annoying when you can't find the blacksmith's toolbox or whatever since it's super tiny and just blends into the background without doing anything in particular to draw your eye to it.

In short, if you liked the first game, you should probably pick this up. If you've never played the first one and find this in a bundle a year from now, it's a nice, little resource management game where you can't find yourself in a fail state and is oddly relaxing and addicting to play. It'll take about five hours or so to see everything there is to see but it's an enjoyable, light game that is ideal for zoning out and chilling.

One last thing, you can continue playing after beating the game, so unlike the first one, there's no worry about a point of no return.

YES! It's finally here. Been waiting for this from a loooooong time!

+ The biggest 'PRO' of this game is that it's EXTREMELY FUN to play. It's relaxing, soothing, immerse, and most of all FUN.

+ Awesome Story: It's about how a common village boy struggles to save his sister and along the journey helps everyone he meets.

+ Casual, Fun, Relaxing: This is not a super hardcore game, just a casual one which will make you smile and happy! ;)

+ World, Environment, Aesthetics: The graphics may not be top-notch, but the aesthetics are awesome! You are really transported into another world. You can feel the stuff happening around you, you actually start believing that you are the protagonist.

+ Unique gameplay: It's purely point and click, but it's not like your common hidden object game either. It mixes hidden object, strategy, decision-making and RPG elements into one single combo and trust me.. it's worth trying.

+ NON-LINEAR: Unlike the first one, there's a plethora of things to do and a plethora of ways to do it. You'll have to make many smart choices as to how to proceed. I don't think it's possible to get stuck, but the game might get extremely slow if you keep on making bad choices.

± Sountrack: The soundtrack is amazing. But it's pretty much exactly the same as the first game. I was hoping for a little change/variety.

- There are *SOME* objects which are very tough to find, and it can get frustrating very quickly. But if it does, you can always ask it on the discussions page and we will be happy to help!

- There's one more problem with the game. There are several skills which are unlocked later but it is very likely that you will do things and never know why you did them. I killed tons of spiders and zombies to reach nothing but dead ends and no award. I kind of started thinking it was just a way to make me lose my gold until I unlocked the lock-picking skill after which it all made sense. Maybe a marker on locked objects stating you need to learn how to unlock would have made me less furious.

This game is built on the same engine as the First one, except that it has some better animations/bigger sprites and support for different profiles/save games.

Be sure to check out my review of the first part to get a rough idea about what you can expect.

Rating: 9/10
I subtracted a point from the original because of some more cons in the game. But added a point for an overall more non-linear gameplay.
