    This game is pure genius. It would be useless to describe it, it's a sort of rpg-strategic-adventure text based game, and it's awesome. You just need to take your time with it, read, and don't mind the fact it's an "old style" game. This game will give you "vibes", but only if you are "tuned".

    This has to be one of the deepest and most original games out on iOS. KoDP is really like no other game, and plays like a mix of a choose-your-own-story combined with a roleplaying game, where you control the fortunes of an entire barbarian clan, instead of a small band of heroes.

The setting, the fantasy world of Glorantha, which originates from the world of table-top roleplaying, is one of the most interesting and magical fictional universes ever created, and to be succesful in the game, you have to immerse yourself in it and think like a Gloranthan barbarian. A true masterpiece, and recommended for anyone with a sense of adventure and imagination. Expand

    A very fine, unique game in which you must THINK and carefully consider the consequences of your actions. No fancy graphics, but how many books have you read that have fancy graphics? It does have fine hand-drawn art and enough scenarios that you can play the game over and over and still not discover everything it has to offer.

    You start out as the head of a small clan nearly alone in the wilderness. You explore new territory, seek the support of your gods, make new alliances (and enemies), and manage a complex yet understandable set of relationships that will result in your tribe thriving or starving. The goal, of course, is to be crowned King of Dragon Pass, but there is a shorter scenario for those without the patience (or skill) to achieve that. The built-in tutorial introduces game play in an easily understood manner. The developer continues to enhance the game, recently holding a contest which resulted in new scenes, and the visually challenged will find that the game supports Apple's enhancements in that area.

    Highly recommended for the thinking gamer. If you think Fast and Furious is the cat's meow, don't bother.

    You have but two options : wait for an indie to craft a modernized version, as rich and enticing as The King of Dragon Pass is, or overlook the dated production values of the original in order to enjoy it right here, right now. Sure, this Sim/RPG game isn't for the faint of heart... you need to be a potential king in order to survive it. But here's all the fun.
