Kingdom Story XD is a cartoon style game about warfare through efforts to build a powerful kingdom, recruit magical heroes and train armies. The game is a graphics-twisted version of Kingdom Story, which was released in March 2012.
Kingdom Story XD is a triumph for its cute characters, charming kingdom and not-serious monsters. Specifically these elements are implemented in a city builder. Of course, this is only what the game is proud of.
Strongly identical to Noumena’s previous mobile strategy game Warring States series, Kingdom Story XD comes, however, with a luring choice for players to buy their Gems, which can drive players fast to touch on the warfare and guarantee their strong defense and attack.
The game is priced at $4.99. In fact, this app is not targeted for new players, but for those paying players who have already purchased Kingdom Story iPhone version. If they have already paid for this app, they are more likely to buy ingame Gems. That is why the XD version comes out for these players.
The visual designs look appealing, but that is only limited to a specific age group. For strategy game fans, I do not think they would buy the bill. For both strategy gamers and younger artwork lovers, do they really need such slightly expansive app? This is a question!
Gaming controls work fine on my iPad 2 device. I can easily find the quest building list, tap and drag virtual build farm, lumber camp and quarry to erect them in the main city. By navigating to the world map, I am able to conquer, attack other players if I was qualified.
What weighs on warfare and combat reflects on a failure of dynamic animated attacking. This part, to be exact, is the same with that of Warring States.
Luckily, the game is not single player based, but online multiplayer oriented, which the developers did not mention in the app description.
Overall, the game itself does not find room to bring it into a high level game and it nevertheless takes on a different visual design on its surface and sink into eyes only for a second.
