Kingdom (Series) Review
Posted: 21 months ago, last updated 11 weeks ago.
Junior players will enjoy the compelling jeopardy of each night and the thrill of discovering new weapons and defences. The simplicity of the game’s trial-and-error strategy makes it accessible to a wide range of ages. Playing with a sibling or parent expands the enjoyment and defensive options.
Playing for the first time in single-player mode helps you gain some understanding, but this is a game about making decisions without all the information you might want. Children enjoy making notes about the effects of different expansion options and plotting their next move. Then, moving to two-player mode, you can work efficiently together to develop your civilisation. Talk and communicate about each decision and use the extra pair of hands to get things done more quickly as the game progresses.
There are different versions on different systems
- Kingdom Classic is on PC and Mac.
- Kingdom New Lands is on PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, Switch, iOS, Android
- Kingdom Two Crowns is on PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, Switch
Players: You can play with 2 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. To fully complete the game can take 50 hours. This unfolds slowly and requires a considerable amount of trial and error. Games can be paused at any time. Kingdom: New Lands is single-player but Kingdom Two Crowns has a co-operative mode.

PEGI 7 with violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and non-realistic looking violence towards characters which although human are not very detailed.
The examiners report expands this rating with the following: The pixelated humanlike characters in this game can be attacked by the monsters. When hit, they die and fade away. The monsters can get shot by arrows or catapult, or a knight can slay them with its sword.
This game has been rated ESRB TEEN.
Skill Rating: This game is enjoyed by 9-16 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. The two-player mode helps younger children enjoy this. But there is some skill required to decide which elements of your town to upgrade. You also need to have good administration skills to ensure you don't run out of resources.
