How to Play My Kingdom
The aim of My Kingdom is build a great kingdom through growing and managing your population, money, buildings, and food supplies and also by completing quests.
To begin with you must grow the population, build homes and provide the workers with food so that they can build further houses – and all of these are dependant on each other: Your workers need food and somewhere to live so you need to start farms and building; but you need workers to build homes and farm the land. You also need to build homes on which you can raise taxes and farms from which you can grow produce to sell at market; both of which you use to make money to pay for more resources to build more homes etc. And so using strategy and time management, you are challenged to ensure this cycle keeps going round, to make sure your kingdom keeps growing and expanding. You should also keep in mind that each aspect takes time to come to fruition, so you have to think about how long things will take and plan ahead so that you have the supplies you need at the right time. This is not a fast-paced game but instead unfolds at a relaxed pace.
My Kingdom Review
You will find like all time management games that the citizens of your kingdom are busy working even when you are not playing the game. However, in My Kingdom, you are encouraged not leave your kingdom unattended for too long, as a number of problems could crop up in your absence. For example, maintenance issues could halt building, and this then would have a knock-on effect on food production, tax revenues and your population.
Other elements of this game include:
* Businesses such as bread makers, butchers and market stalls. Use business to accrue more income.
* Quests varying in size and reward.
* Decorations to be used to embellish a variety of buildings from simple dwellings to castles.
My Kingdom is a good city building simulation game, with a medieval feel, a social element of playing with other Facebook users and a strategy, time management game that allows you to play at a relaxing pace.
