The story of Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit is interesting and exciting. It’s a classic point&click adventure in a modern look and a modern setting. Funny characters and beautiful locations round off a great adventure game.
It’s difficult for me to say this, especially with so many positive elements in the game, but I found Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit to be mediocre. It doesn’t do anything inherently wrong, but there is nothing very memorable about it either. My lasting impression is that the game played it too safe and colored too neatly inside the lines. Clearly, a lot of love, effort, and resources went into creating this game. I wanted to adore it, but I have no interest in playing any future games in a hypothetical Crowns and Pawns series. I suppose players looking for a classically-styled point-and-click game will definitely get something out of it, but it’s not a game I would recommend buying unless it’s on sale.
The smaller project mostly gets positive reviews, and in many respects they have to be right: it's not a flop. But at the same time, we don't have the honor of having an adventure that we will remember.
This game is a refreshing modern take on old school point and click games. Very well polished, with amazing voice overs and sweet graphics. The puzzles are often difficult to crack, I had to look for answers in a walk through or on forums more than once.
Solid game, if you like point and click games and also games similar to broken sword then you should try it, you wont regret it. It has very cool puzzles and the story is nice but it ends kinda abruptly setting up for a sequel perhaps idk.
It has very nice art and graphics too.
