    If you’re already a strategy fan or enjoy the ever growing breed of roguelikes that seem to be springing up everywhere, you’ll almost certainly enjoy Kingdom: New Lands. On the other hand if you’re new to either then I can’t think of a better place to start.

    For those who want clear guidelines on how to progress, many will find the obfuscation and mystery of Kingdom tiring after a while. For those who want to know how to get platinum gamerscore, or how to beat the game in the quickest way possible, again, Kingdom will stubbornly refuse to comply with those needs.

    If you enjoy managing simple resources while watching your troops do their thing, you’ll probably like this game. For me, Kingdom may be a bit on the simple side, but it is this simplicity that keeps me coming back to try, try again.

    Kingdom: New Lands is a casual strategy tower defense-like title which should keep you engaged for hours.

    A stunning pixel art game, with a very interesting mix of mechanics ranging from management to tower defense in a roguelike structure. Unluckily it can get quickly boring too, and when it's not it can deliver some unbearable difficulty spikes.

It's frustrating that this game hasn't picked up more attention. The pixelated art is gorgeous. A game like this shouldn't be more artistically rendered. The music is perfect beautiful atmospheric simplicity. The gameplay is very unique and extremely simple to pick up, but hard to master. This is a difficult game with no checkpoints or save points, but it makes for more rewarding experiences that way in my opinion. I've put in more than 20 hours and i'm still fine tuning and learning how to survive each run through. This game is similar to Dark Souls in the sense that there isn't much of a tutorial but requires you to learn as you play, experimenting and figuring out what so and so does. I for one love a throwback to games with a higher more unforgiving difficulty. However its not too difficult that you will become frustrated. If a mistake is made, you will certainly know what you did and be forced to correct your gameplay. The only reason i don't give a 10 is because it can become repetitive. But for only 15 dollars it's a serious steal and if you consider yourself a video game enthusiast you MUST try out this brilliant game. Expand

This one seems simple, just get coins, have peasants build stuff, then escape to a new 2d side scrolling area. But how you build determines your followers ability to defend and expand your lands. So there is a lot of subtle strategy. This is a great game to add to your collection, but I'd recommend it for 9 bucks or less. Expand

There's something voyeuristic about being only able to watch your people as they struggle to survive. See them grow as a community, see the archers at work, the builders repair the walls after the Greed come for you. You have very little direct control, yet you have all the power, spending their wealth to keep them safe.

    With the plethora of unlockable things, and secrets to discover, it's a refreshing take on kingdom management. One that I'd love to see grow from strength to strength.

    So I have Xbox game pass which in case you don’t know what that is, its a service that costs $10 a month and you have access to 50+ games? ISo I have Xbox game pass which in case you don’t know what that is, its a service that costs $10 a month and you have access to 50+ games? I don’t actually know the amount but some games are taken out of the service and new games are added in. One day I saw that Kingdom New Lands was added so I downloaded it. It took awhile but eventually, I sat down and started to play it.

    I have a confession about this game. It makes me feel stupid. I did not understand what I am supposed to be doing. It’s a side-scroller and I would run back and forth. I would hire people but I don’t really know what I was hiring them to do. I would give money to trees and then next thing I knew the trees were gone but I don’t know why I wanted to do to do that. I spent a couple hours running back and forth doing things but the game never gave me any direction of what my goal was.

    I didn’t get frustrated by the lack of direction but I did lose interest. It didn’t make sense, I could have looked up online but after a couple of hours. I just didn’t care so I uninstalled the game and have no interest in going back to it.

    Le pire à part l'ennui galopant consiste bien sûr dans la présentation elle-même dont même une Atari 2600 ne voudrait pas (elle s'est retournée dans sa tombe) : c'est en effet une foire aux pixels en solde d'un mauvais goût abominable, pour ne pas dire d'un foutage de gueule éhonté. Je crois à dire vrai que même les chiottes n'en voudraient pas.
