Throne: Kingdom at War – build your cities, gather allies and go on a quest for the throne of the kingdom.
Throne: Kingdom at War was released by Plarium in August 2016 and is available on iOS and Android devices.
This is a city-building strategy MMO where you get to build your city, gather resources and conquer other players.
First impression: Throne: Kingdom at War
Plarium has released several MMOs in the same style as Throne: Kingdom at War – Vikings: War of Clans, Sparta: War of Empires, Stormfall: Age of War.
If you have played any of their other games, almost nothing here will come to you as a surprise.
In a sense, that’s not a bad thing.
Simply put, Plarium has found a success formula that brings them downloads and revenue and they are utilizing it to the best of their abilities.
You start by picking your main character, you champion who will lead your medieval armies to glory.
Then, you can follow the tutorial and begin building your infrastructure as well as training warriors.
The user interface is extremely simplistic. Even for someone who is completely new to the game it’s an easy nut to crack.
Make sure to follow the tutorial closely because not only it will give you some free buildings, it will also teach you when to rush production and when to wait.
Throne : Kingdom at War is like many other games in this genre, especially when it comes to mobile strategy games.
What I mean by that is, while visually and gameplay-wise they don’t differ much, the one to gather the best community will win. Because other players is the core for these games.
What are you building your city for if not to defend from and conquer other players?
That may be a problem because when I tested the game, many of my neighbouring cities seemed to have been abandoned.
However, in the Google Play reviews, users praise the amount of active players they found in this game. So, I guess it could depend on time and place where you start.
It is hard to rate games like Throne : Kingdom at War. On one hand, Plarium has developed many games like this that became popular.
It wouldn’t fair to them to claim that their games are not good.
On the other hand, if you have played other tribe-building strategy MMO, then you probably won’t find anything special here.
However, to me the final score is still a positive one and it’s not because of the game, but because of the community.
Plarium has a forum where you can make new friends and co-op with them in the game as well as a massive player base.
