Rule the Kingdom HD
iPad Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Ah, roleplaying games. Probably my absolute favorite game category there is. From creating your perfect character to building your own fantasy world, there are almost no limits when it comes to these amazing fantasy games. The same is true for some of the best RPGs available on iOS.
Rule the Kingdom HD, developed by Game Insight, LLC, is an immensely popular RPG for iPad and iPhone. With 4.5 stars in the App Store and over 10,000 ratings, this is definitely a game that’s well-liked in the community.
Concept and Gameplay:
Many would like to believe that all mobile RPG games are created equal, but those who really enjoy this broad category of games know better. Rule the Kingdom HD melds roleplaying and storytelling with city building and interactive agriculture to create one of the most complex games I’ve seen for iOS.
When you start your Rule the Kingdom HD adventure, you’re immediately immersed in a classic 2D world. After choosing your character’s gender, name, and outfit, you’ll go through a great tutorial that will guide you through almost all aspects of the game. From battling enemies to growing crops and developing buildings in your new kingdom, you’ll be ready to take on the world in no time!
While Rule the Kingdom HD is far too complex to cover every single aspect of the game in this review, it’s worth mentioning that the game is an absolute blast to play. As someone who has played RPGs since I can remember, I’m glad to see a game that goes beyond questing and leveling. To be successful in Rule the Kingdom HD, you need to hone your combat skills and your design strategy. In essence, you need to be a well-rounded player and ready to multitask.
Rule the Kingdom HD is packed with features that make it a wonderful game, and it seems like each update brings something new to the round table. For example, you can now battle against other players around the world in PVP mode. The leaderboards have even been redesigned to accomodate PVP gameplay, so you can track yourself as you dominate others and move up the ranks.
Also, you can even tame wild animals to assist you on your journey. Plus you can group with NPCs to assist in quests. The best part about this is that it’s covered in the tutorial so you’ll be pretty good at utilizing everything the game has to offer, even how potions work and how to loot treasure chests.
Rule the Kingdom HD can be downloaded for free from the App Store and includes the usual optional in-app purchases of gold and diamonds. If you’re looking for a great RPG that will immerse you in your own medieval world, you definitely need to try Rule the Kingdom HD!
Rule the Kingdom HD is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
