Be A King - A Strategy In Medieval Setting!
Have you even dreamt of being a king? But have you ever thought what that really means? Be A King, the new strategy game introduced by game developers, will give you a great chance to try this by yourself. Thanks to the addictive Build-a-lot-like game play, exciting new twists and the eye-catching graphics the game is one of the best titles released lately.
Medieval times? All romantic and noble? Yes, and much more!
Sometime around 950 AD somewhere in Western Europe lived a Prince. He knew that sometime he would become a King. But he also knew that real power was based not only on brute force, but also on the vassals' well being. He knew all about the hard life of his citizens and he could no longer stand this. So he decided to develop his kingdom, to build beautiful cities and to provide all its inhabitants with food and protection. And here you come into the story - because only your strategical skills can help him in his noble mission!
The game play, as I already mentioned, strongly reminds that of Build-a-lot series. Each level represents a settlement for you to develop to the certain degree which is set up by
your goals. Those are connected with constructing a certain number of certain buildings,
reaching certain population or income, etc.
You'll have four types of buildings - dwelling, food-producing, military & guard and
service. In order for your settlement to thrive you'll have to balance those in order to have enough food and soldiers to protect all your citizens. Of course, each building will
require certain resources, including materials like wood or stone, workers and money. All
that can be obtained for your money. If you overlook something, one of your advisors will
let you know what you lack. You can also control your stats in the Info tab at the bottom of
the screen. Where you'll find information on your population, town capacity, food,
protection and income.
Your income comes mainly from your citizens, and the better your town is, the more gold
you'll get. But there are other ways to earn more money and resources. From time to time
you'll see scrolls in the bottom of your screen. Those are game events. You can either
accept or ignore them. Some will require just some resources and a bit of luck - and you'll
get a bonus. For others you'll need a hero - those can also be hired. Heroes will also help
you fight monsters together with your military buildings.
I could tell you much more about the game play details, but I'll better let you discover all
the attractions of Be A King by yourself. Don't you want to Be A King?
