it fell flat
I don't usually write reviews, but really this game had so much potential. I was greatly disappointed that it didn't meet that potential. The sound was great, the story line intriguing, however the game play not so hot. The power ups for the most part aren't available unless you are replaying the level to get the gold, which for me was a great disappointment. For each level, there is a bonus quest to fulfill, however no instruction on how to fulfill them and some of them definitely needed instructions. I won't go into too much detail, because I find everyone else should form their own opinion. Will I purchase the game? No. Do I recommend it? I can't say that I do as the game is.

Druid Kingdom had a potential to be a great game but it went astray.
1. Someone thought it would be an excellent idea to make the gold time the same as the developers' time. There is zero leeway for gold and only one way to beat the level.
2. You can't get gold without the power ups. Not a big thing but power ups cost coins.
3. You have to use your coins to unlock the next chapter. Shouldn't everything be unlocked to me with the exception of bonus levels? If you didn't realize you had to pay to unlock the next chapter and you spent all your coins in the store then have fun replaying levels.
4. Dialog is drawn out and blocks out part of the screen. My timer started but two folks at the top were having the SLOWEST conversation ever. Ex.I need to find my sawmill and upgrade but I can't see the sawmill because it is behind the speech bubbles.
5. Tasks are not on the screen. If you forget what the tasks are you have to click on the exclamation point which pauses the game.
I <3 MKTFP but this is a no way.

Not at all what I expected.
This game does not encourage the user to want to play. The game play is stilted and not intuitive. Most time management games allow move stacking but this one does and does not introduce all the bonuses and extra features until after you have already seen them. On level 2, I was able to add a bonus worker because I happened to see the icon not because the game told me that was a feature available. I like the Kingdom for a Princess games and expected a similar experience. Sad to say I was disappointed.

Before trying this game I did take note of the negative reviews, but thought I would see for myself. I have to agree with them. I also love this genre of game and like a challenge, but the timing on the levels is quite tight and you cannot queue the tasks. What a shame the developers have not moved with the times with this aspect of the game. The tasks you have complete are not visible, you have to click an icon to check.
I also don't like having to replay levels to progress. I got to my first replay then hit the exit button. Not for me I'm afraid.

why make what could be a fun game so tedious?
i just dont understand,,, if your going to make abilities, that cost soooo much,,,,why not make beating a level in gold,,,be worth much more then they are,,,,,or when the game is finished the 1st time,, rain a few 100 or 1000,, for replay,,, or not charge to use in level powerups,,,so getting gold is doable.....
i finished the game...hoping that later levels would give more crystals....but instead i am simply replaying the level in chap 4 that i got gold for a paltry 12 gems per time,,,have been doing this for days,,, and still the only xtra ability i have to lv2 is chaining....
having to just go in and replay over...and over...and over....(cause i guareentee without the extra abilitys gold is not possible)
.is not fun...its boring (another mistake is not letting you go on after timer,,,for many its a auto no buy)
ould of been a fun game....but i give up....st not worth it imo
well.....off to play Moia,,,,build your dream,,,,,by a dev who knows how to give builder lovers what the want

CLICK CLICK RACE THE CLOCK !!!
Based on 2 levels. I decided to buy this with a credit, even tho I barely got gold in most levels and wondered just how hard it would be??
After finishing the first level you buy the next level(which is rediculous!!) and then you can buy power ups to let you queue tasks, start the level with a building with a +1. It costs way too much!!!!
You don't have your tasks in the corner so you have to click on the tab up top to get a reminder. side tasks give you just a few extra gems, or whatever they're called!
I expected so much more from this developer than a game so hard no one can beat it!
I used the video walkthrough on you tube for a few levels and still couldn't get gold........ one level was bronze.
time mamagements are suppose to be about strategy but this game doesn't even give you time to think about it!!! I even tried pausing to think - still no good.
I'll delete this game and hope the dev can do some kind of upgrade to make it a LOT MORE ENJOYABLE!!! I wasted too many hours on it....... I'll go play Moai for some enjoyment.

I wanted to like Druid Kingdom because I love these types of games but I found it monotonous and not very challenging - I only played the first ten levels and I usually give a game longer than that even if I don't really like it but I think I am just going to let it go - I even purchased the game thinking that it had to get better but it hasn't...good thing I used the 4th or July discount or I'd be really annoyed :)

Game play needs to have a casual mode for those players who do not like timed modes.

Way too hard
Gave up after playing level five at least eight times and still not able to achieve the gold - not even close. Spent ages playing the level before as well, before I finally cracked it.
Yes, challenges are good, and it's no fun if you can waltz through the levels without having your time management skills pushed. But this game was too frustrating for words. Which is sad, because overall I quite liked the whole set up. Had the road clearing bits of RtR and MKfaP, and some elements of VS, but the seeming lack of time to actually complete the quests makes it a no buy for me. It'll take a better man that I, Gunga Din, to master this one. :-(

Not a very big fan of this TM game. You cant mark the next spot for the player to go to you literally have to wait for them to get back to the house to go to the next task. Not very helpful especially when your trying to get the gold on each level. I had to replay I cant tell you how many levels because of the frustrations without giving next tasks. The graphics, storyline, music an everything else that goes with this game is great except for the next task thing. If you could plan your next move I think this game would of been a HIT!!
