  1. I had to format my computer a couple of days ago and have been busy reinstalling programs and games over the past few days, so today’s review isn’t really a review; just a summary of the games features plus several links to screenshots, screenshots of the in game tutorial and a video as well as some decent reviews posted elsewhere on the net. It’s past 3am and I’m too tired too write a full review so I hope you’ll forgive me for the lack of a decent review. I have played the game for a couple of hours on and off throughout the day (The demo allows you to play the first several levels.

    Conclusion

    I recommend downloading and trying this game out; though if you’re not sure, check out the video link that I’ve posted above as it gives you an idea as to what the game play looks like. Playing it on the hardest difficulty setting (accessible from the levels map) makes for a very challenging game. Be sure to know the game mechanics before you try it on this setting as otherwise you’ll soon lose your wizards tower and castle (and thus lose the ability to create new knights). The graphics are of the isometric form, with the ability to pan around and zoom in using the mouse cursor and simple controls that you’ll find in game. I don’t think I could play it for protracted periods though, because the game play does become a little tedious after awhile which makes this an ideal arcade game for filling up those odd few minutes you’ve nothing better to do. (I recommend playing it for no more than about half an hour at a time) It’s a change from the usual puzzlers, arkanoids and shooters; requiring a little strategy as well as luck to progress.

    It’s definitely worth a 7 out of 10 IMO and will be staying on at least one of my computers.

  2. Looks pretty nice. And it supports online multiplayer, which is a major plus of course. I wonder though, if you go to their site, they have a version that you can download for people that have better video cards (shader support) – can we install that beta on top of this or?

    Either way, thanks as usual GGotD

  3. Be aware – the ReadMe states:

    Please, make a note of where the game is installed (there won’t be
    any desktop shortcut created). By default game installs to C:\Games\Kingmania\.

    In fact, by default, the game installs to C:\Program Files\Kingmania
