For those of you that just don't have the time to play all the different kinds of games you want, I recommend Kingdom Conquest. This game has everything.
To all you greedy Android players looking to play simulations and role-playing games, but don't have the time to really get into multiple games, your wait is finally over. This game will satisfy all your gaming desires. As a king in Magna, the Land of Monsters, you must spread your territory and reign over your minions, while at the same time using your character by himself to complete dungeons!
Build your kingdom!
First is the simulation part of Kingdom Conquest. This involves the usual tasks such as constructing buildings in your base, harvesting resources, raising an army to control fields, etc. There are different kinds of resources, such as wood and rock, and this aspect may seem familiar to fans of the German board game The Settlers of Catan. Resource gathering and building construction proceed at actual speed.
Naturally, there is a tutorial that explains the basics of the game and how to succeed, but special attention needs to be paid to construction, as haphazard building quickly uses up your valuable resources. I wasted half a day building randomly and failing miserably...
Raising armies and then invading surrounding lands is also important. In the field of battle, you will sometimes come across bases of other actual online players. Strategies regarding when to fight and when to make allies seem to play an important part in this aspect of the game.
The action part of the game takes the form of your character heading to fight in dungeons called "Towers." You can also form parties with other players that are online, an activity that is integral to exploring these towers.
I skipped over this, but you can choose between three character types when you first start the game. The swordsman is the balanced character, the warrior is the melee character, and the wizard is able to attack from a distance. Each has their own positives and negatives, so you can choose which one fits your playing style.
The action part of the game has some gorgeous graphics for a smartphone game, and is on par with other quality action games. In my opinion, Kingdom Quest has some of the best gameplay amongst action games with on-screen control pads.
How does it compare to the super-popular Monster Hunter games? Check out the game's action for yourself in the video below!
With all these features, the game puts quite a drain on your phone's resources and battery. Even so, this is the first game to offer such a diverse style of game types, from building and resource gathering in the simulation part of the game, to playing the action RPG part that includes some MMORPG aspects. This is the kind of game that keeps you coming back!
