Move Along

I spent a little more time with King of Nations, but unfortunately don’t have much to report. The game play is essentially the same as Evony, Kingory, etc, and there’s nothing really unique about it. It also suffers from poor translation and some terrible UI color choices. Since there are already so many games that offer the same gameplay, same visual theme, and a little more polish, I’d suggest passing this one up.

On the plus side, the city view is rendered in 3d and looks pretty nice. The drawback though is that every building has its predetermined slot so it’s harder to get that sense of “this is MY city”.

The game does include the now standard sexy tutorial lady, so at least it’s got that going for it.

There was also a review of King and Conqueror posted over at MMO Hut that came to pretty much the same conclusion: nothing to see here.

Cheers,
Oliver

Never Gonna…

The latest game design challenge over at Game Career Guide is to design a game based around a Rick Roll. I can’t wait to see what people come up with!

I’m also taking a look at two new games, Freeciv.net and King of Nations. I’ll let you know how it goes…
