City-buildingEducate and train your Keflings to become workers, scholars, even Mayor of the city! Build your kingdom alone or cooperatively with up to three of your friends online. The more you build, the more buildings you unlock and the more Keflings you attract, so start building today! City-building fun: In an original approach to a well-loved genre, A Kingdom for Keflings features a large avatar interacting with the Keflings, resources, and buildings of a small village. Resources and Keflings can be converted from one type to another. Buildings can be built and upgraded with a combination of specific resources and specific Kefling types. Buildings in turn make new resources and Kefling types available, unlock new building types, attract more Keflings, and achieve other game goals. Expand

    NinjaBee’s downloadable world-building game is whimsical, humorous, unique and has none of the high-pressure feel of your typical strategy game. Although it has some presentation quirks, Keflings rises above them to achieve a Zen-like quality of pleasant addiction.
  2. Its bubbly presentation and stress free gameplay creates a welcomed change of pace that can appeal to just about anyone.
  3. Though the Xbox 360 version does have a more organic-feeling control system , avatar integration, and a lower price point, if you consider yourself a PC-only gamer, you should definitely check this one out!

    A Kingdom for Keflings is a city building game, the tasks are simplistic and it is impossible to fail. There are no enemy forces, naturalA Kingdom for Keflings is a city building game, the tasks are simplistic and it is impossible to fail. There are no enemy forces, natural disasters or resource limitations to prevent success and as such things get boring pretty quickly. There are buildings which convert the resources into needed building materials such as a lumber yard to convert wood into planks. Build stuff and get your Keflings to collect and carry stuff while your avatar does the same - that's about it! For the casual gamer interested in passing time, I guess it could be kind of addictive for a while but there's better ways of passing time. For the serious gamer it loses any cute appeal pretty quickly and - assuming you can be bothered to carry on to the end - there is no point in replaying the thing again as it has only one mission. It is pretty stable but did hang a couple of times and thus any progress since the last save was lost. In a nutshell, as a budget game for the younger members of your family it's probably worth an 8/10 but for anyone serious about gaming it's at best a 6/10 hence the score. Collapse
