    To sum up A World of Keflings is a step up in class from A Kingdom for Keflings.

    It's a lovingly crafted sandbox experience with enough direction and personality that you'll want to help those little guys to the bitter end. If shooting things is more your game, however, we'd suggest checking out the demo first.

    A World of Keflings is a great improvement over the original game.

    You'll lose track of time and learn about the rising cost of goods and services all at the same time. Economics made easy!

    A World of Keflings still succeeds at being a unique and accessible simulation that serves as an excellent first step into a larger world. [Jan 2011, p.88]

    If you liked A Kingdom For Keflings, you'll love A World Of Keflings.

    A World of Keflings is a little too shallow to really satisfy the true builders in the crowd, but if you've ever felt overwhelmed by Sim City and others of its ilk, AWoK's casual approach may be more your speed. Plus, the appeal of shooting Keflings out of musical cannons simply cannot be overstated.

    A World of Keflings does a superb job at advancing the series with the addition of localized co-op play, more kingdoms to play in, and adding an amusing storyline to keep the player entertained throughout their entire experience.

    Kids will undoubtedly get more out of it than adults, but most players will simply wonder where the eight hours went. [Feb 2011, p.75]

    If you've never played a Keflings game, definitely start with this one.

    With its uniquely approachable structure, highly-polished details, and a laser-sharp focus on fulfilling its own premise, it's a title that I'm glad to recommend to both adults and children alike.

    Even though it can get a little repetitive, the fun and charm that fills the game will carry you on through the rough bits.

    Between its humor and pace of rewarding your efforts, A World of Keflings won me over.

    An exercise in resource management as much as it is a game, A World of Keflings is not without its charms but is best left to the casual game fan or budding supply chain managers.

    Considering its faults and weighing them against the pros, A World of Keflings is still an addictive game with a lot of personality and creativity.

    Beware though, a few bugs resides that need ironing out such as tasks not being removed after or accepted as completed by keflings. They may potentially confuse gamers and have them get stuck as they spend unneeded hours trying to solve a problem with no solution.

    If you've never overseen the Keflings, this is the version to get. For Kefling veterans, all but the most dedicated giants may find the World a bit too familiar.

    Same game, bigger map. [Mar 2011, p.103]

    There aren't many changes to be found in A World of Keflings, another easygoing city-builder game from developer NinjaBee.

    A World of Keflings feels more like an enhanced remake rather than a true sequel, and anyone who played through the original will quickly get déjà vu from the identical journey from basic houses up to an ornate game-winning castle.

    As a palate cleanser, A World of Keflings certainly does the trick, though you may feel your sanity begin to ebb after extended sessions.

    It's best to think of A World of Keflings as an XBLA Christmas present for the wee ones, really a "Baby's First RTS" more than anything.

    If you never get tired of the basic ideas at the core of every resource-based strategy game, don't mind unnecessarily cute (and occasionally lame) attempts at humor, and can get past some minor targeting issues then World could work to fulfill that tiny niche of XBLA resource management games.
