Kingdom Chronicles Collector's Edition
Lovely and fun game
This is a lovely building/strategy game with colourful graphics and fun gameplay.
Similar to the MKFTP/Roads of Rome games.
There are a variety of different things to do each level, some levels are challenging, others easier to complete in gold time.
There are 40 levels in the main game and only 6 in the bonus.
The scoring is not very good as it does not give a time the level was completed or breakdown of what the score consists of and when you replay the total of the replay score gets added on.
The strategy guide is useless- only gives very general tips.
As a CE this does not have the substance of Royal Envoy which is the best value CE's ever produced in my opinion.
I rate the game 4 stars as a CE - (standard TM's have 50 levels and this has only 46 including the bonus- and there is not a proper strategy guide included)
as an SE I would rate the game 5 stars

If you're a fan of My Kingdom for a Princess, Royal Envoy and similar games, then you will also love this one. I have only played the free trial so far, but it's a definite buy for me. The only thing I'm not sure of right now is whether the CE is worth the extra money or not.

This was an instant buy for me, a great, fun game...with well done graphics and is challenging.
But is it worth a CE..!!! The 6 extras levels are totally different...and are just a click fest...the strategy guide is just plain simple basic instruction and the couple of artwork are well not a lot.
So you don't lose anything if you wait for the SE. Will do for the probable sequel.

great for a long rainy day
Now I have only tested the demo, that said I quite enjoyed the game. Its a great little game, and one that takes a little stragtic thinking ( best possible route, what to do first etc) I like the characters my favourite were the guards. ( a sucker for a guy in armour i suppose) The game is fast paced which suits me just fine.

CE? not sure
Like many reviewers said: this falls in with the other games of this sort. Collect wood etc. build up the huts,build the barracks etc.Music was a bit too repetitive for me. The graphics are crisp and you have decent good time on the upgrades. Not sure that I want to buy CE though because in the 1 hour that I played I did not need strategy guide. I might need it later but not sure it is worth the extra money.Maybe I finally played too many of those games that I can wait, I was not impressed with anything so special that I must have it right away, even though I still prefer it instead of all the HOG.

Similar to Island Tribe, Roads of Rome and the MKFTP series. It is challenging, but not overly so. I have played between 15-20 levels and I have gotten the gold on every level except two. You definitely need to look at the level before starting to plan your strategy and the goals for each level are very clear. Graphics are well done and the music is not too annoying. Overall, a fun game!

Great Time Waster, Somewhat Challenging
I loved this game for two major reasons: Some of the levels you really had to plan what your next move was--like chess. If you decided to build or collect something too soon/late it affected your overall medal rating. The second reason was that it took a lot of time to complete. I was not able to finish the game during a couple of my toddler's "nap-times". I actually played it all week, couple levels at a time.
*Visually pleasing *Music was just right
*Had to use your brain through some levels
*Made you want to get a gold medal
*Took a lot of time to finish the game
*A couple levels were too easy, especially in the end
*I wish there was more to the storyline
Overall, the game is well worth it and wonderful!

First Time Player of Chronicles Games
I have to say this was a pretty fun trial! It was fun while it lasted, but not a purchase for me. I need something a little more challenging.

If your kids are complaining about nothing to do, turn them lose on this game.
I am convinced your kids will love this game no matter their gender. This game is light heart'ed shocked full of busy chores. Rewarded for all the hard work.
Art work is very good and the game plays with out problems.
Now this adult will await a hidden object game that is sinister and disgusting.

Fun "Time Passer"
For me there's not a whole lot to say about this game. I purchased this game after playing & beating Royal Envoy CE. Kingdom Chronicles has quite a bit less in number of levels than RE, so game play went pretty quick. The levels overall were somewhat challenging...I say somewhat only because as the game progressed there were a lot of click, click, click levels, which gets sort of annoying. I was able to finish all of the levels with gold...having to restart certain levels a few times to get it just right.
Much like the market vendors in RE, the market vendors in this game also made annoying sounds. At least in RE I could make out what they were saying, in Kingdom they just make an inaudible grunt. I finally just turned the volume down to solve that problem.
All in all decent game.
