For The King is an unusual blend of play. It's turn based, meaning you, other player, and enemies take turns to move and attack. You choose which sort of attacks to attempt or bring in special focused moves. Each play through, the maps, quests and world events are different. It's a challenge to see how far you get, although eventually you will die and start again.
Also unusual is the ability to split up your party. This enables you to search larger areas, but means not everyone will be able to help if you encounter a fight. You also need to carefully work on gaining better weapons and upgrading your abilities.
The co-operative play, along with the simple weapon-slot battle system makes it accessible to players new to role-play and strategy games. Some patience is needed early on while you learn the ropes, perseverance enables you to progress well. You can also gather herbs to heal wounds or set up safe camps or brave the horrors that nightfall brings.
Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated Parental Guidance (PG) for Mild Fantasy Themes, Mild Fantasy Violence.
