Addictive Time-Management Game!
Fun time-management game with nice story-line. There are similar games, including earlier versions of this one, however this one is quite good and addictive. Ttere are goals and challenges to meet, strategy is involved, and you want your characters to win. Good family game.

Familiar story but solid example of genre (where is the women's lib)!
This is the usual ?clear the roads and build? genre of TM games in much the same vain as Royal Envoy and Sweet Kingdom. The basic storyline is 3 princess (brothers), who are after the heart of the Princess (women?s lib not hit game developers then in the fact that the role is never reversed (three princesses for one prince, or the princess has a say in whom she marries)), but saying that I suppose this is the case the world over in games and movies and books so hey ho.
The game itself graphically is not the best (though I appreciate it is a slightly older game), the music is never this genre?s strong point so can?t really give that as a positive or negative, though I will say I didn?t need to turn the volume down and it wasn?t overly annoying (thus for this genre therefore the music could be said to be good), even though this was a SE there was a voiceover which drove the cut-scenes on and did I suppose enhance the story slightly (though again for this type of game, the storyline etc. as stated previously is not really a strong point).
The gameplay was standard for this genre, in that the first few levels were the learning curve and then it started to get a little bit more of a challenge. The beauty of this genre is if you play a lot of them then the ?skills? learnt in one game can be transferred to another (I suppose this is the case if you play a lot of an genre of games), the one thing I will say though is that like so many of this type of game is that even if a worker is empty-handed after they have finished performing a task then they have to go back to the hut (town hall etc. etc.) before they can perform another, this to me seems to be an inherent fault in this genre as it seems to me that you are wasting precious time, waiting for the worker to go back to the hut before you can action them to do something else (when you had more workers it perhaps was not as noticeable) but certainly for the first few levels it was and it made these levels drag slightly. I suppose having just played Sweet Kingdom where you could give them multiple tasks it was perhaps more noticeable.
Other than that though the game is good fun and for each level you have to get the artefact, but there are several other tasks to do as well (such as complete bridges (usually to gain access to get the artefact) and build different work buildings (such as farms and sawmills).
If you are fan of this genre, then you will be on familiar territory and this game does not really throw anything new into the mix, but nevertheless is a good solid example of this genre of game. I would certainly recommend this if you like this genre of game.

I love Roads of Rome, Kingdom Chronicles, and Royal Envoy series, so I thought I'd try out the My Kingdom for the Princess games because others compared them to the ones I love. BOY are these different. The characters are cute and the basic gameplay and objectives are the same, but there's no option for chaining actions or speeding characters up--so when there's just one little guy working, you have to sit there and watch as he chops up a tree, then wait for him to return to the house before you can click on the next thing for him to do. I didn't even make it very far into the trial period before I just got bored and exited out. I like TM games where you're doing something most of the time, not just sitting there waiting for the characters to do things. I'd suggest not buying this without trying it first.

I really wanted to like this game. I was hoping it was going to be as good as the Roads to Rome series, Kingdom Chronicles, Island Tribe 3 & 4, or Legends of Atlantis. While the format of clearing roads, gathering, and building is similar, the fun factor is just missing from this game. While your playing a narrator proclaims certain actions. It was so annoying I had to turn the sound effects off. Also at intervals, you have to play a "whack a mole" game where you smash wolves with a hammer. Meanwhile, during the levels, bats have to be shooed away at times before your workers will continue with their actions. This all adds up to be very interruptive and frustrating. There is no option to be able to cue up actions. And your resources are automatically added once they begin to be produced. I like the challenge of having to gather these myself.
I was very disappointed in this game.

Fun Times Three
This is a great sequel to the Kingdom for the Princess set. The only bad thing about this game is when I'm finished I have to wait for number four to come out:( Please hurry BF.
