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.
