My Kingdom for the Princess III
Very similar to My Kingdom....1 and 2
I have My Kingdom for the Princess 2, and enjoy it very much. This 3rd game was too familiar. Although there are some differences such as a volcano land, they weren't different enough. I recommend buying just one of the three games.

My Kingdom for the Princess
OMG...the most addicting game I've ever played! Bought all 3 versions! Some levels seem impossible to pass "before nightfall"....but freaking awesome games!!

Better games of this style available
The Kingdom for the Princess games just aren't as good as Roads of Rome or Island Tribe. Even Rescue Team is more fun. The mini-games are irritating and the constant need to rely on powerups means you're constantly distracted from gameplay looking for powerups to recharge.

Very disappointed, a lot of the levels were just repeats from I and II. Pretty insulting that the creators think we won't notice this!

repetitive tasks, no fun for me
Unlike Promised Land or Kingdom Chronicles, this was just click on something, wait for the NPC to run back to the shack. I know others loved it, but I couldn't even finish the first area.
I wish I'd tried it for free first. I wouldn't have wasted a credit on it. Sorry...

Good, in Doses - A Guy's Review
This is the third installment in this series, and seeing I haven't played the previous two, I can not compare or comment on the progress. On its own it is a good and entertaining game, in doses.
What I mean about that is that it does get a bit repetitive in the long run. You are doing much of the same over and over. So I found the best way I like to play it is play it in parts in between other games.
That does not mean that the game is in any way boring. It is fun and challenging to figure out how to make it in time, and especially challenging to earn gold on the level. You need that to keep adding to your castle, that you build along the way. It can get stressful however, and a bit frustrating when you have done some wrong choices and end up without resources, and have to sit and wait for them to respawn.
The game in itself is about collecting resources, repair roads, fight off enemies, build buildings, clear paths and reaching a selection of objectives to finish the level. Pretty typical for these sort of games in other words. It is broken off with a couple of mini games. A Whack-a-Mole type game and steering some sort of transport through an obstacle course in a classic arcade way. In the latter one I found the controls to be a bit off, or at least taking some time getting used to. Other than that one controls seems to be right on target in all other elements of the game.
The graphic quality is quite good. I don't really know how old this game is, but expected the graphics to be much worse. Everything seems bright and crisp and it is never difficult to see what needs to be done where. The characters animated well enough and it all looks smooth.
The story in this game is rather typical fairy tale'ish and thin, but I found it OK enough for this game. I don't feel it is a game you play for the storyline anyway.
If you are into strategy games similar to this, you will most likely like this as well. It plays similar to most others I've tried so far. It might even be the series that started it all (don't really remember which came first). It offers challenging game play, and has several elements that opens for replay. The castle as already mentioned, but also achievements to earn. However, if you are looking for a game to relax with, this is probably not for you. It is time based, and that time limit gets strict later on in the game. The game is lengthy enough so I think you'll feel you get your money's worth even paying full price. When in doubt try it before buying it.
For the guys:
It might be fairy-tale'ish fighting to win the princess and half the kingdom like, but the story line has a back seat in this game. Game play suits anyone who likes a bit of challenge.

This was a waste of my money!
Parts of the game were so hard I didn't get through it.
Total waste of time and money!
