Customer Reviews
Hero of the Kingdom III is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUCH A UNIQUE STRATEGY GAME It's been several years since the last Hero of the Kingdom was released and I couldn't wait to play it this morning. I knew within the first few minutes of the demo that this was exactly what I was expecting and I bought it. The graphics are fabulous and I love searching for various supplies and discovering new lands that become available as you progress. In the last episode, a young boy and his sister were the sole survivors of a devastating earthquake. They have been traveling aimlessly through the woods searching for a new village to live in. A kind and gentle man discovered the orphans and invited them to stay with him in a nearby village. The man has treated them as one of his own, teaching them basic skills necessary to survive, and in this episode, the storyline focuses on the boy and his journey to become a man and productive member of their village society. You will click on various villagers that have exclamation points above them to receive tasks, completing those tasks will earn you Hero points as well as various food and supplies. A villager may need help finding items such as ingredients, medical supplies, or even lost items. When you have all supplies or ingredients to complete a task, a green checkmark or exclamation point will appear. To find these items you may have to search all available scenes for the necessary items and you may have to Barter with the locals to exchange one item for gold, or gold for an item. There are also hidden crates and barrels that you can click on to receive random supplies. Just like in reality, you need to sleep and eat, so you can click on the Fire Icon on the bottom Right that takes you to the camp where you can sleep and eat to refresh your Heart score (almost instantly) There is also a Backpack Icon located on the bottom Left that shows your inventory. You can earn 57 different Achievements as well and have the ability to create several different profiles. The Innkeeper will buy Food items from you anytime, so you will want to hunt often, at first just rabbits but as your archery skills improve, other animals become available (they don't show anything other than arrows) You can sell fish, mushrooms, rabbit and other animal meat, salt, roots, and eggs in exchange for Gold, the items themselves, such as eggs and mushrooms must be found by scavenging to town and forests. The Inn itself will sell you beer, food, antidotes, swords, shields, magic potions, and healing potions in exchange for gold. These ingredients are necessary to complete other villagers tasks. The Traveling Merchant will buy furs, animal teeth, antlers, crystals, jewelry, pearls, and golden fish in exchange for gold and he does travel from time to time. Always be on the lookout for various items hidden in caves, in forests etc, magic mushrooms, for example. Giselle is the best cook in the entire village, she will give you food when you help her find eggs, salt, roots, and mushrooms (the mushrooms you see will tell you if they are edible, poisonous, or magical) eggs are located in birds nests all over the place. She can even teach you how to cook, but of course, you will need to exchange gold to buy skillets and cauldrons. The Tool Shop will sell you various tools needed to access caves, chop wood etc. You can purchase ropes, hammers, shovels, torches, and axes in exchange for gold. The Fishing Shop will sell you raw fish bait, fishing flies, fishing rods, fishing hook's and fishing nets in exchange for gold, they will also rent you a boat to be able to access islands which of course has villagers living there as well that may need your help with finding items on the mainland. The Hunting Camp will sell you meat, furs, bows, arrows, spears, and poison in exchange for gold, or they may agree to help hone your hunting skills in exchange for something of value. So basically, you will need to strategically figure out what items are required to complete a specific task, who to help first to hone specific skills, decide which villager has the necessary items to buy to complete which tasks, when to hunt, when to sleep and eat, and you have to decide which order to do them in as well. If you don't have food for yourself becaue you have used your money to exchange for the wrong items at the wrong time, you won't be able to earn health hearts that are required to continue. New supplies become available when new areas open up, but not before you clear paths from venomous snakes, rats, bats etc, and those require becoming more skilled at archery and hunting, so you must manage your tasks and supplies wisely. I love this game, for me, I find it way better than Virtual games where you have to wait in real time or buy your way through it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's been a long wait 4 years since the last installment and so worth it although because this is so different you could do with them a bit more frequent. Was it worth the wait,oh yes. No timers, no 3 stars to acheive just take your time and enjoy. Did not bother with the demo just bought it as I knew I would like this but for those whom have never tried this before do get the demo as it may not suit as we are all different. You can just amble around at your own pace acquiring everything you need.Can get a bit frustrating when you can't find something but its all there you may need to find something else to reveal what you are looking for. Just the right type of game for me. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game, not enough of them! I was so happy when I saw they had made a new version in this series. I usually play TM games and especially love the ones that involve a little more strategy (Royal Envoy or tower games). This is a strategy game all the way! It reminds me of RPGs from years ago where you have to search for things, talk to people, get clues on what to do next, sleep, gather food, improve skills, etc. This is a game where time flies by and you don't realize you've been playing for two hours. I was so sorry to get to the end last time, and I'm sure it will be the same this time! Please make more games like this one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Quest Fest! I gave this game 5 stars after a real struggle between love and like. Because I have played the other two in the series, I love it. It is an offering which relies purely on its merits of strategy to solve quests and open territories to solve yet even more quests,as well as finding and collecting extremely tiny hidden objects scattered through the whole game (with back and forthing) in order to do it. You must buy and sell items with traders to gain gold, solve peoples needs to gain favour and hearts and gold, pay others to help you along your way, learn how to hunt, battle, fish,and then on top of that even going to sleep to stay strong is not even free. You need food and hearts. The game is not anything amazing at all to look at, in fact quite dull in terms of animation, but the challenge of the journey is such that I don't care because of the game play. The journey is slow and stressless other than the thinking involved in the choices you make, so if you are not patient person, this is not the game for you. I also don't think this is the game for beginners to the series. There is no hint button (although internet help is out there), and the tutorial is not very explanatory. So I am saying it is a great game as an experienced player. I would start with game one if not. I really do recommend the series! So if you have played before, there is nothing much new here, it's just a different journey. I am enjoying it though because I am on top of what I have to do. My confusion levels are low because of the familiarity. Try the demo. Its a game where personal taste counts for a lot in what you expect from a strategy/adventure. Enjoy!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maybe better than the first two.. Strategy galore! I have the other two in this series and play them over and over. Never with the same strategy,you are in control of your adventure. There is no right or wrong way to advance. Gather goods laying around, complete tasks to gain food, money and status. Help towns folks and nobles to reach your goals. There are differences In this one and a new story line. I am addicted to HotK #3. I could barley stop to let you know how much I recommended this game. It is a different kind of game... strategy, creative thinking and a good memory. Give it and try and some time, and if you truly like adventure you will love this game. IMHO Enjoy! Used a credit... what a gift :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Hail Our Hero - Again!!! I played all three of the Hero series. This third installment is by far the best and the hardest. There is no dying (except for the monsters you kill and the animals you hunt). You (or your avatar) can't die. It's not like a Virtual Reality so much. It's more like a Role-Playing game with training wheels. In the first two games, you had to find food, get money, kill the bad guys, and be the hero. But the amount of resources were limited (animals, mushrooms, eggs, berries, etc.) and the only things you could eat were bread, cheese, fruit and meat, (none of which you had to prepare). The second one was the same, so far as the limited cuisine and resources were concerned, but you could also catch and sell other things, like fish, crayfish, shield fish, etc. In each of the two earlier versions you could find people with the best buying and selling prices for goods, etc. And you had to buy potions, tools, yada, yada. You could only camp in specified places and at each camp you could only eat a specified item. In this endeavor, you can camp anywhere. While at camp, you can cook (you learn recipes which use meat, fish, eggs, mushrooms, roots, salt), make potions (which use ingredients you also find, such as frogs, spider venom, algae, flowers, mushrooms, sulfur), and also forge weapons. You are expected to learn and master a total of 9 skills (Combat, Archery, Fishing, Cooking, Herbalism, Alchemy, Lock Picking, Mining, and Smithing). The skills are tiered so you can progress, i.e., initially, you start out shooting one sort of animal (with arrows), then progress to different animals, after you've gained so many points. The same is true for the combat skill - you get so many points for each monster killed (but re-kills don't count for points). As you get more and more points, your combat skill grows, as does your weapon skill. You start able to use a bow and a sword, then you gain the use of a shield and spear, etc. It's very much like real life. It's very much a patience game. You can't try to move to far too fast, or you'll find yourself held back by either money or skill. You won't be able to afford the weapons you need, or you won't be able to kill the monsters you need to kill because of your low skill level. I love what they did in this game. The ability to make your potions, cook your food, forge your weapons - all of it brilliant! The regenerating resources - absolutely necessary and flawlessly done. But I'll warn you, don't get too comfy or cozy once you get the hang of the game and get some money under your belt...because they threw in a few surprises to keep you going. There are 4 valleys - the Green Valley, where you start - the Yellow Valley, where you are sent to seek help - and the Grey Valley, where you go when you find no help in the Yellow Valley. The Azure Valley is really the Castle and grounds. If you think of them as levels, each one is harder than the one before. The ONE thing I don't like about the game (and it's only because I'm extremely OCD) is in this offering, there is no place to sell your excess tools, junk stuff that you get so much of in crates and barrels. You can sell your excess food (individual items, not made recipes), potions, flowers, frogs, fish, mushrooms, eggs, weapons (forged only), but there is nowhere to sell your bows, arrows, ropes, torches, cauldrons, fry pans, lock picks, nets, fishing poles, hooks, etc, all of which you receive from crates and barrels! It's so annoying to have all this junk at the end of the game that you can't sell! LOL~ I'm looking at all that money that's just sitting on my screen and crying. :( Great game. Suggest Demo First to see if it's your cup of tea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish These Types of Games Were Released More Often!! Absolutely love this game series, and this newest version is no exception. It's a seemingly simple concept/design, which is often referred to as a point and click adventure or strategy game. I don't understand why there aren't tons of these games out there!!!! You have to collect and sell resources in villages/areas to earn food, gold, or materials for creating weapons, fishing implements, potions, cooking devices, etc. Weapons can be bought or created (later in the game) to hunt for food, fight demons, etc. You have to complete various missions, with the ultimate goal of saving the land from an invasion by demons/orcs and the Earthquaker. You are eventually given a map that can help you navigate the kingdom. It's very casual. Sometimes the resource collection can be repetitive, but you can do it at your leisure, so it makes up for it. Resources do respawn, so no worries if you need more of an item; keep playing and it will pop up again eventually. Luxury items (e.g., pearls) do take longer, as can be expected. Have to admit, the storyline and design got a bit cheesy when it got to the "Earthquaker" (you'll see) - almost childish/cartoonish - but it's my only complaint. Tips (since BF did away with the forums for game tips): you can continue to play after you beat the final enemy; however, it seemed to me that the re-spawns are much slower afterwards. If you're one who likes to get all of the achievements like me, then try to get any achievements that rely on resource collection before you complete the final battle. Oh, and start catching fish with hooks early on to get the golden fish achievement by the end of the game. Lock picking is also something that can take awhile, so start on that as soon as you have ability (middle of the game). Chests respawn also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best ! This is with out a doubt one of the best games I have played in a long time. I went and replayed the first two to help get a feel for the game play style before starting this one. It sucked me in and I had a hard time stopping to do other things, you know like eating, sleeping, etc. When I had to stop to take care of business I could hardly wait to return. I play a wide variety of games but really enjoy this style of game. It reminds me a lot of the old D & D type of games visually. I will be replaying this one many times in the future, and hoping for more from this developer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite game! This game is "practically perfect in every way"!! It's a fun mix of strategy and RPG with resource gathering and professions both with a hint of hidden objects searching for treasure, mushrooms, and other tiny things. I had trouble pulling myself away to write the review but wanted to add {another} five star review to this games growing collection of raves! There are a few things on my wishlist for the game that would tip it up into the next level... (do devs read these reviews? this part is for you)... 1) The ability to customize difficulty level would be nice so that we could turn off the signals on the screen when herbs can be harvested for example to make it more challenging or turn on signals when resources have respawned for those times we don't want to strain our eyes searching for the tiny things. 2) Being able to customize our avatar would be nice as well... having an equip function for example and choosing gender. 3) Having a vendor available at the beginning that buys extra weapons or things we find would be great too since there are times you end up waiting for the free resources to spawn in order to gain more life hearts to continue. 4) Adding lockpicks to the early vendors would be great 5) And finally, adding narration to the story portion would also be fantastic! All in all a solid five stars! With a minor ding down to four stars for visual/sound quality and level of challenge... but those dings are minor and do NOT change my overall five star rating. HINT: (but not a spoiler)... do not judge the game on the start. The beginning can be slow even if you choose your quests carefully and spend your life hearts wisely. At least play the entire demo before deciding because it really picks up as you go along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a third - now bring a fourth! Really different. Challenging, fun and best of all re-playable using different strategy. This game is the best of the best for all of the above and I'm thrilled to have a third edition. Now Lonely Troops - get busy on a fourth.
