Many players cannot resist the allure of medieval games. The climax of the battles, the nobles and knights gave rise to numerous games and King's Empire is part of this group. In addition, the medieval adapts very well to the game genre we are going to talk about, the MMORPG, with knights, scattered castles on the map and managed by various players. Want to know more about King's Empire? So time to read our review.

King's Empire is a very similar MMORPG in many ways to other apps we reviewed recently: either the Galaxy Empire or Spartan Wars. The player is immersed in the game and from the beginning embodies the sovereign of a small kingdom. A tutorial guide guides the player through the first steps of the game.
There are several aspects of the game that, despite being separate, are not dissociable. After learning from the tutorial how to manage the kingdom, the main goal is to build a powerful army by gathering enough resources in the course of the game. It is possible to choose between plundering or producing one's own resources through work. Because looting is a faster method, developers include empty villages to make it easier to attack resources.
Some quests seek to bring the player closer to the app. Once the tutorial comes to an end, quests can be run daily to gain advantages in the game. Objects are another important component: these guarantee certain options such as a peace treaty, for example or were some events such as rain to bring prosperity to the village. There is another way to gain benefits: the wishing well, which accumulates desires according to the quests completed by the player.
Obviously, these elements can be purchased with real money, which greatly facilitates the life of those who decide to spend on the game. It's normal for developers to want to make money from the app, but we should be critical of any attempt to give the game shoppers much more advantage over the game.
One of the positive sides of King's Empire is that it does not crash well despite slow Internet connections. Communication with other players is a fundamental aspect of the game, as it determines diplomatic agreements with friends, allies and, of course, enemies. Global chat is very popular, even though the languages used there are many and it is not possible to understand everything that is being said.
King's Empire is a very entertaining game and has the potential to cause the player to stay hours ahead of their gameplay. Many aspects like the tutorial and the NPC villages keep the level of interest high from the beginning of the game. The elements that can be purchased in the game store end up making life easier for those who buy them, which we do not find so positive. Anyway, for its structure and complexity, King's Empire deserves to be tested.
Screen & Controls
King's Empire really impressed us from the beginning. The graphic presentation is very well designed and the details visible and well defined. However, by increasing the zoom level, the animations lose their definition. The soundtrack helps the player feel part of the medieval setting and the controls work great, not to mention that they are easy to learn.
Speed & Stability
King's Empire had some problems during our tests, such as an unexpected crash. Anyway, it is important to note that this is a real time game, which means that normal data loss or blockages happen. The game could also take less time to load.
Price / Performance Ratio
King's Empire can be downloaded for free from the AndroidPIT App Center. We have already mentioned the possibility of acquiring in-game objects and how decisive this is for better game performance.
