The Kingdom Majestic Collection brings together the Kingdom Games and DLC in one edition.
There really are a plethora of games that have taken hold of looking and feeling like one retrogame, but with a modern twist. Most recently, I reviewed retro-inspired Jump King and now I have the physical edition of the famous indie success Kingdom Majestic Collection in my hand and time to give my view on the matter.
Kingdom Majestic Collection contains both the game Kingdom New Lands and Kingdom Two Crowns plus alla DLC which has been released; so this is a solid bundle game. I have not played them before and got through this release to experience the games for the first time on the Nintendo Switch. What I like is the beautiful graphics, the awesome music and that the games work just as well in portable as in docked mode. Then it is extremely easy to pick up and start playing the game because you only have three buttons to keep track of; Left, Right and A button.
You only move sideways. You can not fight – the only thing you can do is pick up coins and use them for different things. Such as recruiting subjects, buying trees, building forts, bows and so on.
The whole game is about this, back and forth on the same surface, which changes after you play. If the enemy comes, you get to fly or bring protection with you. If you lose the crown, it’s the next person’s turn to become king. In all its simplicity, the game becomes both extremely easy and extremely difficult at the same time. No matter how simple the game mechanics are, it is extremely difficult before you have had time to build a sensible defense.
In summary, the feeling is that Kingdoms origin as a mobile game penetrates quite strongly: focus on killing time and relaxing to nice pictures and music, without any great depth to delve into in front of a big screen TV. I feel like I need a little more than that, unfortunately will be Kingdom Majestic Collection very monotonous too fast.
