My Kingdom for the Princess III
Good Game, Bad Story
Enjoyed the game, but like an earlier reviewer, I was irritated by the dumb-as-wood, utterly passive princess waiting to be won by whomever. Storylines won't change, however, until more women begin designing and influencing computer games, or start to write reviews as consumers that state the changes we'd like to see in a series.

I enjoyed this one a lot - will definitely be looking for the 1st and 2nd games! The 'fantastic minigames' are more 'average minigames', but they only pop up at the end of completing each section.

Continuing the saga
This is a clear-the-obstacles type of time management game, where you must build to get resource buildings, clear roads, gather resources etc, in order to get to the other side of the map.
It is timed - of course.
Mini-games include whackem-levels, but not as bad as it was in MKFP2. There's also a race through the obstacle-maze sort of thing between levels.
As the third in the series, it was quite -- bland. Ok, but not so engrossing that I sat up during the night just doing one more board.
It was easier than the first and second games, in that you have easier access to resources, and the timer is gentler so it was not as knuckle-bitingly where-can-I-shave-off-the-seconds? re-play and re-play again to "make it before nightfall."

Not very interesting game.
I love this kind of games and I have bought a lot of them and this is my least favourite. Although it is a quite difficult game , it is also very boring. I didn't like the buildings and the graphics were poor. I didn't even finished the game!

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 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.

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!

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.
