Perfect for a quick game or a long-binge session, choose to play a king/session or through an entire century - some options feel repetitive but there's enough leeway to make the game interesting. It's basically a choose-your-own-adventure complete with realistic circumstances - complete with crusades, silk road, the reformation, theocracy and more. Tip: if either of the bars fill up, you die; if either of them empty, you die.
Great, but I have lost my latest game several times. For example, I got over 100 year once and lost. After closing the game and reopening the game later the same day, I found that particular one game was lost completely in history. Not sure if cloud save is the cause.
Really quick to play if you don't have a lot of time, but also fun to sink into if you feel like it. I love the sense of humor and all the branching directions you can take, and you don't get penalized too harshly when you die. You just get another crack at whatever goal you were trying to achieve or event you were trying to bring about. Easily one of the best mobile games ever
Swipe left for yes, right for no, in this roguelike RPG. Manage your kingdom through binary interactions with other characters, while carefully maintaining power balances between the church, the people, the army and your wealth. Give the church too little power and be taken apart by the pagans. Have too much money, and you get fatally wasted on booze or shot by an arrow in an impromptu archery contest. Too much or too little of either of them will end a game. Built for mobile, the game is simple to control, swiping left or right to make each decision. The playthroughs are random, at least in terms of the sequence of events. That gives the game some good replay value. The outcomes of the decisions per encounter are fixed, so you can think of that as a way to play more strategically on future playthroughs as you collect newer event cards and progress through the game. I liked it. Simple controls. Light humor. Quite replayable.
Not much fun - repetitive and takes forever to finish a timeline. Read articles on how to get different outcomes. Seems like it would take too long to stumble upon those solutions. Who has the time.
I love that there are still paid (not IAP) games like this out there, and better yet, games that actually embrace the mobile genre and build around that. This game is a perfect game for any phone or tablet, with a gorgeous art style, good sense of humor and a surprising amount of strategy. It's very easy to pick up and play a quick round (or fifteen) and I can't get enough.
