    With its pleasant visuals and nice soundtrack to back it up, Nostatic Software has cooked up a nice little retro adventure that’s definitely worth the more than generous $1.99 price-tag.

    With a bit more challenge, perhaps with another area or two, or puzzles with a bit more depth, the gameplay could have been extended a little. But as it stands, the price is so low and the game is so fun and relaxing, Ascent of Kings is certainly worth your pocket change.

    Unfortunately, Ascent of Kings can at times feel sparse, and it doesn't exactly scream replayability; that's an issue for a game that can be completed so quickly.

    Its lack of character and content are a real obstacle after the first entertaining moments around the game, as Ascent of Kings features very little in terms of plot and charm that could keep the players holding on to its decent gameplay.

    There's simply no appeal to the MS Paint drawn world that's been created; it's a boring and thoughtless mini-disaster that should just be ignored and forgotten.
