    But I digress, for those bugs do not take away from my overall impression of King Arthur’s Gold, which is a great multiplayer game that stands out from the crowd by being something that embraces lunacy and remains grounded with simple mechanics that allow for a variety of strategies.

    Manages to bring its brand of sandbox building smoothly into the chaotic competitive multiplayer realm. [Feb 2014, p.78]

    King's Arthur Gold is not the Terraria clone that you would expect looking at the screens: it has it's own pace and fresh game modes.

    An interesting mix of retro graphics, medieval battles and fortress builder.

The developers have done an excellent job balancing building and destruction. Every game it seems people are able to leverage their creativity and construct some really amazing traps. The sword fighting while initially simple has multiple levels of mastery. If you like terraria/ctf/basebuilding/team fortress 2 I recommend this game. Expand

You can choose between 3 classes (knight, archer and builder). Everyone should give it a go Expand

    Best build and destroy game I've ever play. Building phase is just long enough to make some base, and then you have to conquer enemy base. LotBest build and destroy game I've ever play. Building phase is just long enough to make some base, and then you have to conquer enemy base. Lot of fun especially in long run when resources are low. There could be more deep hidden gold or maybe a stone, but that's okay. You don't need to play one game all day. Expand

    Having played this game for close to two years now, the simple yet everchanging gameplay created by the act of perpetual war on a battlegroundHaving played this game for close to two years now, the simple yet everchanging gameplay created by the act of perpetual war on a battleground combined with the community truly makes this a worthwhile investment, especially considering the classic version of the game is almost entirely free, with access to the light smattering of premium features incredibly cheap for the amount of play I have gotten out of the game.
    The flexibility of KAG is incredible, with modded servers making the most of their resources to create vast roleplaying servers and rebirthing old-school arcade games such as Donkey Kong. If anything, this is set to improve even further, with the next iteration of KAG, implementing a fully functional scripting system to bend the game to almost any length through modding.
    Whilst I give this game such acclaim, it is true that there are still some flaws, generally bugs in gameplay which haven't quite been perfectly ironed out, and other such things. To that end, I'm satisfied to give the game a 9/10, although I look longingly towards the future, as so many possibilities remain open to pursue.

My only wish is that the developers would add unlocks. After a few hours the game gets old. (Maybe adding unlock-able heads would spice things up?) This game is a blast, however I don't see any reason to keep playing. Overall KAG is a fantastic retro looking game! Expand

    King Arthur's Gold is one of the greatest indie games currently active.

    "KAG is a multiplayer deathmatch game played with up to 32 players. Build castles and wage war on the enemy team as a Knight, Archer or Builder in a fully destructible medieval world. It blends the best cooperative aspects of Lost Vikings, mashes them with Worms, with the visual style of Metal Slug, brought to you by the creators of Soldat."

    The above description (ripped from the website) is quite enough however I must point out that this game can handle more than 32 players if you're curious.

    Pros:
    - Great visuals
    - Great support for modding with automatic downloads of mods from servers
    - Unique, refreshing gameplay
    - Great community
    - Some player customization (can change player's head and gender)

    Cons:
    - Bad learning curve (takes a while to grasp what this game has to offer in it's default state)

    I was about to list a couple bugs with the engine however as this game is in active development they are being squashed quite often. King Arthur's Gold is a great, growing multiplayer platformer. Recommending this game to just about everyone.
