The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth

Release Date:  N/A
Publisher:  Kabam
Developer:  Kabam, Warner Bros
Genre:  Strategy

The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth is a free-to-play mobile strategy game from Kabam in collaboration with Warner Bros. The game follows the same formula of Arcane Empires and Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North.

Update: In January 18, PlayLore released a new App Called “Downfall: Clash of Factions“, which takes on the post apocalyptic setting, yet deliver the same experience with The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth. As we tested the game, we found it is a complete copycat of Hobbit.

In the game, players are able to choose from two races – Elves, Dwarves, – to build their kingdoms by training fantasy units and eventually go to war with neighboring kingdoms or beyond (If mighty enough). Players are initially assigned to build their own kingdom with some basic structures to produce supplies, and later to upgrade such buildings to acquire experience points, or gain more privilege to recruit new heroes such as Gandalf and Thorin. The heroes players recruit could be used to lead troops to participate in the battles.

Rather than faithfully hewing to the original books and movies, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth mainly uses the characters of The Hobbit while exploring a new theme to earn profits with Kabam’s city building code.

The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth is reminiscent in many ways of “The Lord of the Rings online”, especially the featured artwork.

The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth, whose gameplay has nothing with the film “The Hobbit”, simply starts with a choice to pick up either of the two Races: Dwarves or Elves to build your city. The game just promotes itself using the brand “The Hobbit” with no substantial relationship with the real film at all. But it qualifies itself as an addicting mobile strategy game after Clash of Clans.

Except for “artwork, soundtrack and brand”, Hobbit: KoM is isn’t the best strategy for iOS or Android mobile devices, but it is a cut above average with such adornment or decoration. Better, it could possibly be on a par with Clash of Clans.

Most of game developers would love to take the kind of advantage of the background, storyline, and characters of classic films to create a hype on their promotional purpose. As it turned out, such promotion could save a great deal of bucks to advertise.

Hobbit: KoM as a whole is a great strategy game for warfare gamers and it plays much like Kabam’s Dragons of Atlantis or Kingdom of Camelot. At the very beginning of the game, you will have seven-days newbie protection to develop your city. For example, you can build Great Hall to recruit Heroes or Commanders, build more home buildings to have more people, and construct military structures like stable, forge and barrack to grow your army. Meanwhile you can research on some tech to help produce some buff on your farm, quarry, mine and even troops.

Despite the fact that Hobbit: KoM does not let you role play a character to play in a 3D world, it struggles to create an “Hobbit-themed” environment where the soundtrack echoes with the sound of horse bells and neighing of horses, and graphics with medieval feel.

Controls of Hobbit: KoM are not so perfect as Clash of Clans, but it would be ok if you play over a week. For newbies, they may not precisely spot the building they want to check. Buildings are not marked with its name, which gives much confusion for newbies.

    what game did you play ?
    this is the most boring and tedious game i ever played. sure, the graphics are nice and technically it's fine.
    but the game-play is mind-numbingly dull – soul-destroyingly slow.. it feels like some sort of tamagochi for the first seven days. you just fullfill the quests.. so just pressing buttons and waiting around for the first week.
    then you get immediately plundered and destroyed. great. start over again.
    The waiting is tedious and the only way to escape it, (hours of waiting time, simply to upgrade a building or do some research ! and the waiting times get longer and longer as the game drags on) is to spend money.., real money, and it's not cheap. so you either cave in.. or quit.
    personally, i quit !
    In addition to that – this game has zero to do with the book or the story – just lending the names of a few heros (who play little role) and the races. complete waste of a franchise !

    how much money does it ask for?

  3. Jeff says:

    2.99 for what they call mithril . you get 50 mithril for your £2.99 and this lets you buy upgrades / purchases but beware because just to get some chests with a few items starts at 25 mithril and you'll soon use this up the next jump is for a chest costing 100 mithril etc etc you see where this is going and the most expensive chest is 450 mithril you can soon rack up a not insignificant bill if you're not carefull. Mithril packages start at 50 mithril for £2.99 right up to 1600 mithril for a whopping £69.99. if you have very deep pockets lucky you , but i wouldn't / couldn't stretch to that kind of money , much better games out there that you would pay half the price and have the disk to boot

    I absolutely love this game very addictive. The best way to stop being plundered is to join an alliance in the top 30. This is a group gaming experience where you get to make strategic plans to take out those who are hostile to you. its good fun and then you will never be short on resources as they are/should be shared between those in the same alliance. Some annoying bugs at times however once you get into it, you can look past the few flaws.

  10. Brett says:

  11. Brett says:

    Can someone have 2 campains at the same time? One elf and one dwarf? I started with dwarfs and somehow lost it? Any idea how to get it back?

  12. MistyOrigins says:

    How do you know what server you are on or in?

  13. Bobby Lev says:

    I'm enjoying it. It looks to me that the secret to not being pounded when protection ends is twofold:

    Have some wall might so that attacker loses troops
    Spend your resources. Keep your resources below vault capacity and spend gold on research.

    Then the attack isn't worth the candle ( lots of easier and more profitable targets). And you gain might and capabilities at the same time.

    Yes,as you level up it gets tedious waiting but at least it keeps yor wife happy since you only need to dip in once a night for 15 mins. 😀

    Nobody picked up that this game is just their 'Godfather Five families' with different artwork?
    Kabam is recycling the same gaming code just tacking on different art!
