Installation:
Royal Roads downloads to a 326 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper the set-up file and a read me). The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed if you wish. The installed game is approximately 895 MB in size.
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Royal Roads
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop; the shortcut to the game, plus three others ''Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and a shortcut to a free online game. These latter three shortcuts can be deleted once the game has been installed. The Themida wrapper may alert your security and even block the installation; there are details about this issue in the read me that unpacks from the downloaded zip file.

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Royal Roads to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try white-listing the setup.gcd file. In the almost 12 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving away Roayal Roads and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

Royal Roads is your typical build something - collect resources game. This game has 100 levels. I played up to level 11. I had no technical issues, the game presented well and the graphics looked good.

STORY:
The story starts off interesting enough, even though it's not very original. However, beyond the first bit there is no story. The screen at the start of the level tells you about what you need to do on that level and then there is dialogue between the characters that tells you the exact same thing again. Not worth reading.

GAME PLAY:
You can click ahead - and for a large part this game involves clicking and then watching the men run around and do the tasks - I found I was watching the game play itself more than I was participating. Two levels had a lot of clicking in it though to get gold - but it was just click everything, do everything, rather than strategic planning. I question why the princess isn't helping - only the men are doing the work...

TUTORIAL:
The tutorial is hand-holding which is helpful if you've never played a game like this before (slightly annoying if you have). I eventually switched it off as there wasn't anything "new" that I hadn't seen before. They do pop-up a help screen after you've switched it off so that you can get help again. That is a nice touch.

WHY I STOPPED PLAYING:
The developers have created very large characters - the men are giants compared to the buildings and houses - and they've created very curvy roads. I found that watching them run along the roads would make me seasick after a while. Then came the upgrade to use horses - well there's no sight of a horse in the game - but the men then start running very fast - so instead of getting seasick I was feeling quite dizzy. This is a game I'd only be able to play in short spurts for those reasons.

In general, nothing new or exciting up to level 11 ... it might get exciting afterwards - who knows. As a free game, it's worthwhile getting and playing (in spurts.) I think the developers would have done us all a favour by making the roads straighter and the characters smaller.

Downloaded and installed without a hitch.
I've been playing it for a few days and it is a balance between choosing the right items and having enough to get what you need to complete each level.
I'm stuck on Level 80 with no solution to solve. Anyone have any help on this level for me?
It is a fun game and too new to have any advanced levels of walk-troughs yet.

Download, Entpacken und Installation ohne Probleme. Beim Starten des Spiels öffnet sich dann aber nur die Web-Seite "https://www.myplaycity.com/"! Kein spielen möglich! Schade!!

Reply   |   Comment by Andre  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Andre, Hi, hast du das "lies mich" gelesen? Der Themida-Wrapper kann dazu führen, dass Ihre Sicherheitssoftware die Installation blockiert oder sogar löscht, da Themida-Code auch zum Verbergen von Malware verwendet werden kann.

Es gibt drei Korrekturen: 1) Starten Sie im abgesicherten Modus mit Netzwerkbetrieb neu, installieren Sie das Spiel und starten Sie anschließend einen Neustart. 2) ... Whitelist die Giveaway-Dateien mit Ihrer Sicherheitssoftware. 3) ... Deaktivieren Sie vorübergehend Ihre Sicherheit, bis Sie das Spiel installiert haben.

Ich hoffe das klärt das Problem. Wenn nicht, zögern Sie bitte nicht, um Hilfe zu bitten.

Haben Sie den Thread der FAQs überprüft, zu dem ich in meinen Bewertungen verlinkt habe?

Game doesnt start. Download and installation worked fine, but when I start game, before the game starts, the little window closes and the browser comes up showing the myplaycity.com page. Any suggestions?

Played almost 60 levels so far. If you played games like this before, it is more of the same. Fun timewaster. No relax mode but so far I managed 3 stars on everything. A little tip for new players to the genre, it is not always a good idea to build everything. try to build and clear only the bare minimum on some levels to manage 3-star rankings.

This game has a Trojan Gen. in it!

Reporter, No it doesn't, false positive.Is due to the protection software they use to encrypt the download package

Well that's frustrating.

Downloaded okay and then crashed. Playing windowed I now have a little window that's all black, nothing works.

Any ideas what to do to fix it?

Reply   |   Comment by Mum'stheword  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Mum'stheword, Try Alt+Enter. That is the windows default to set applications from windows to fullscreen. :)

Reply   |   Comment by Mavadelo  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Mavadelo, thanks.

I don't have a problem with it being windowed mode, it's just that there's nothing inside the window. The game won't work and it won't close either without using control/alt/delete.

I'm going to try downloading this game via this site - it has been on the MyPlayCity site for a couple of weeks now. When I downloaded from there, I had the same trouble as Mrs. Dennis - downloaded fine but then instead of opening, would shut down immediately and open my browser to the shut-down page (the MPC page that appears after I shut down any of their games, no big deal not complaining about that part). Therefore, I have not had chance to play it - though I really want to!
I won't have much time to test, then re-comment until later today - I managed to sleep in, and we will be leaving shortly for our weekly grocery run.
One thing I do want to add, though - at one time, these games had a quick "opt out" for reading the story screens prior to game play. I have noticed that the stories are getting longer, and harder to opt out of. I don't know for sure what this one is like, of course, but based on the screen-shots provided, it looks like this is one of the "new" kind. I would much prefer an option to go straight to the game or read the story - I guess some do like it. This is also an annoyance in the HOG games, too.
Anyway, I'll be back later to let you know how it goes for the download! And thank you, White Rabbit, and others who offer their comments and help here!

Catlady, Just got home, and tried to open the game - I downloaded via Internet Explorer (or whatever they call it now) on Windows 10,. Clicked on the game icon to open the game - it went through the motions, then disappeared from my task bar, and instead my Chrome (my default) opened up to the MPC page that always opens when I finish/close a game from MPC.
In the past, when this has happened to a game, it seems that if I wait a week or two and try again, it works. Guess it is time to find the "help" or "contact" page over at MPC...

Gonna try this, I like these sort of games and this is one I don't know yet which is a bit odd Since I thought by now I knew them all. However, my reason for commenting is for those skipping your tips and links for other games.
EPIC IS GIVING AWAY THE WITNESS. A beautiful puzzle game. I highly recommend getting it. For those worried about " another launcher".. you are aware I hope you can disable launch with windows startup? And that after playing a game you can close the launcher again?? good... problem solved :)

Perhaps it's been fixed - I had no problem downloading. If you still have problems, you might try clearing your browser cache.

Tried the link via the e-mail and it does the same. Downloads and installs ok but when you try to run it it seems to get stuck on the first games advert.

A Reviewer,

..................................Moderator comment.....................................

Although you are right, that information cannot be posted here, so I've had to delete the information. MyPlayCity rely on those adverts for their income. If we all did what you suggested, MyPlayCity and other sites like it would no longer be able to give away those games for free. The developers of those games allow their games to be downloaded for free becasue they get a cut of the revenue from the advertising and the re-directions back to MyPlayCity.< /blockquote>

Whiterabbit-uk, lol, I think I know what he suggested. Personally, I don't mind the nag screen and browser pop up for a free game but yeah.... I used that for some games as well. (Got basically the entire MPC library when it comes to these games so there are enough nag screens left lol)
