    I decided recently to play through this game again and I still enjoyed it. The locations and characters are charming, the gameplay is simple and progressive and it's a nice little casual experience to pick up and play. It's slightly on the short side but will give you a few good hours of entertainment.

    Very enjoyable game, this sat in my arcade list for a long time without me touching it (not sure how I got it, is it free?). I finally booted it up and ended up getting addicted to it, playing through the entire thing in two days. It was a little short, but 7-8 hours is definitely not bad. It's very relaxing as it has no time limits or combat or anything like that, you can take your timeVery enjoyable game, this sat in my arcade list for a long time without me touching it (not sure how I got it, is it free?). I finally booted it up and ended up getting addicted to it, playing through the entire thing in two days. It was a little short, but 7-8 hours is definitely not bad. It's very relaxing as it has no time limits or combat or anything like that, you can take your time and enjoy the game. It has a cute sense of humor and makes a good couple jokes, the story obviously isn't the best in the world but it fits the game's silliness. Resource collection and building blueprints are both done pretty well. The AI can glitch up sometimes: some workers get stuck in a temporal loop walking back and forth, and the big Keflings that follow you around sometimes glitch and can't pick up building pieces. The command system (picking a Kefling up, putting him down on the resource you want him to collect, picking him up again, walking back to the appropriate resource collection building, dropping him again) is pretty redundant and annoying, but nonetheless this game is very entertaining if you just give it the chance! I'm probably going to get some DLC, I'm just skeptical of the playtime I'll get out of them, I'll definitely check out A Kingdom for Keflings! Expand

    Its feels good to be a giant among men. This is the feeling you get while playing A World of Keflings, a game were you play as your (Xbox) Avatar. You quickly find yourself surround by all these tiny people called keflings. The Keflings are quite unorganized and they need your help. The game is pretty simple but if you're not in mood for a challenge this can be a decent game. OneIts feels good to be a giant among men.

The Keflings are quite unorganized and they need your help. The game is pretty simple but if you're not in mood for a challenge this can be a decent game. One which I find most enjoyable while playing co-op.

    Although they may be in awe of your size they certainly don't mind asking you for favors or telling you what to do. Its not that they're bossy or anything, the characters are all quite funny. In fact the story is where this game really shines. There are many unique and funny characters from the king and his daughter, to the witch and pirate. They all talk funny and ask you to do some pretty ridiculous things.

    Its your job to help the keflings build up their kingdom. This is accomplished by having the keflings gather resources used to build new buildings and structures. The keflings are hopeless without your input. Thankfully, all you have to do is pick one up and drop it off on the resources you want to collect or transport. After your factories and refineries have enough resources you can make the pieces you need for move advanced buildings.

    This game reminds me a lot of an real-time strategy game without the combat. As weird as that might sound its still quite fun. It really is designed to be a laid back and relaxing experience. Its pretty incredible after you get a couple hours in and you have this huge city with a ton of keflings all moving around doing their own thing. It some sense it reminds me of The Sims, as in watching the progress your keflings make thanks to your efforts.

    This game doesn't require a lot of its players. I can see how it may be boring for those more used to action oriented games. However, I think its nice just to take it easy once in awhile and enjoy a more narrative driven experience like this. Again, watching your domain grow is quite rewarding. Not to mention its always fun to meet the new characters and hear their requests. Its definitely a simple game overall but their is fun to be had.

    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.

    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.
