Review: Majesty the Fantasy Kingdom Sim
One of our favourite computer games NOW for iPad! Still great! Wahoo!!
View on the App Store: Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim - HeroCraft Ltd.
Features of Majesty the Fantasy Kingdom Sim:
Majesty available for iPad: iPad Dad & I celebrated for a long time!
Majesty is a fantasy simulation game that is set in the Kingdom of Ardania. You play the role of the King and it is your job to build your kingdom using money earned within the game and complete the mission of each individual game as required. Majesty is a combination of tower defence and simulation game of the highest class!!! Build your Kingdom with the help of your loyal subjects.
You can build marketplaces to supply items to your subjects and they provide you income. You can create all types of Guilds which house different types of subjects including warriors, rangers, and wizards. You can recruit up to 4 in each guild usually, and these 'characters' will perform in the game true to 'guild' type.
You can build temples holding different subjects with magical powers, and defensive towers to protect your land and entice more 'taxpaying' peasants to live near your castle!!
You cannot directly control the Ardanians but you know what motivates them by type and how to get them to respond to what you want. The element of their own 'free will' does add an added element of uncertainty which is fun!
You have to face a host of different obstacles and enemies along the way, you need to strategise, organise and implement. Thee skills are very useful and they can be enhanced using this type of game.
There are 14 distinct 'missions' each with objectives to achieve. You can also set the level of difficulty from easy (pacifist), medium ((peacemaker) and hard (bloodthirsty) for added challenge and extended game play time. One of the best value apps of all time! We LOVE it!!
10 out of 10!
This has a "battle'" theme as you are defending your kingdom of Ardania against all types of creatures that come towards you. This game should be played only with older children and alongside them.
There are so many aspects to this game that to really understand and play, it takes time and practise. It can be a difficult game, especially for children as each game is LENGTHY.
SAVE FEATURE: This is a long game and is mostly played over time rather than in one iPad turn. You can save your game, but only one game can be saved at a time, meaning anyone who has saved a game needs to get back to it sooner rather than later to free up that possibility for someone else. This is an old time favourite PC game of ours, before we had our little children, and when we saw it on the app store we couldn't wait to play...and we weren't disappointed! Reading required.
