Kingdom Chronicles Collector's Edition
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.

not good for an older person
I never played the demo because something happened and the time was up without me playing. Because I like this type of game, and I read all the great reviews, I decided to buy this game with 2 game credits. I am almost 80 and I enjoy games such as Birdland, Peggle and Banana Bug. I played until I saw the timer and then my heart rate went up as I hate a timer. Perhaps it will work out - I hope so. I marked the fun factor down because of my anxiety. I still recommend the game.

Fun but initially not intuitive
It took me a while to figure out who does what and that those bad guys' hovels need to be demolished. But the game is a pretty good time management game--have played 3 times so far. I do not like the "extra" games--they don't make much sense to me since there's no real goal to achieve. I skipped the story (I always do, I don't care what the story is since it doesn't affect game play and onlly wastes my limited time). Also like that you can complete a level even after you've run out of time so you can try different ways of doing things to try to shave off some time for next time around. Wish there were a way for the good warriors (or someone on our side) to build barriers to prevent the baddies from getting through--would help on some of the levels, maybe make barriers a reward that can be used only once or only on the last level or something.

Lovely TM game
I really enjoyed playing it and bought it immediately. I found the gameplay is quite similar to island tribe. Collecting resources and building objects to produce resources.
It brought a lot of fun playing all the levels, but it did not capture my interest as much as other games of this genre did and so it did not got 5 stars from me.
I think it is very worth a game credit, as it brings lots of fun and hours to play, but not worth a CE. There are not enough Levels or bonus features that would be worth extra money. The strategie guide is not a real help as it only gives overal tips and only 6 additional leves are not what I would expect as a Bonus.
The levels are really good, but become kind of repetitive later on and there is not so much new atmosphere or new characters or buildings that keeps it interesting long term, and I found that the buildings look to similar to get a good overview on the scene. For example when you try to look where the storage could be or the farm. It was kind of a quest to identify it sometimes.
It is not fair to compare it with Royal Envoy as this is simply a leage on its own, and could be and is probably a meassure for what it should be like.
I always wait for something new to come that has the potential to become an addition to my favourites the I can play over and over again, like Royal Envoy or MKFP or Roads of Rome. I dont think that Kingdom Cronicles will get to my personal hall of fame although it still is a good game and I do recommend it.

I would have given this 5 stars it is a great game, but it is very short. I never would have paid 13.99 for it if I had known.

I can tell how good a game is going to be by how quickly I become addicted. Similarly to My Kingdom for the Princess and Royal Envoy, this had be hooked from the beginning.

Hate when this happens!!!!
I loved this game until episode 40. I cannot click super fast because of painful joints. So, up until this level, I was able to do the little fighting necessary and enjoy the game. But the last level in the regular game (40) requires that you fight almost constantly while trying to do other things. I hate it!!!!! If you don't mind the constant clicking, go ahead and buy the game.
