Kingdom Two Crowns – XBOX One Review
Having never played the first game I was coming into Kingdom Two Crowns a little blind, essentially the game is a strategy game where you build and maintain a settlement on a 2d environment.
The game starts with little to no tutorial on what you should be doing and leaves you to discover it for yourself which can be a little confusing to begin with and it takes a little while for you to learn what it going on around you and the little nuances of the characters and animals.
The game itself is pretty simple to play using just the left stick and one button and then the triggers to run on your horse when you can.
The world will cycle on a day and night basis and at night a strange bunch of creatures called the greed will attack, anyone outside the settlement will have their money or tools stolen and if you are caught outside they will steal your money, if you don’t have any they will knock the crown off your head and if you don’t save it then its game over.
You will return as the heir to the kingdom and will take over with some of the previous work to the settlement still in place.
Your day will be taken up sourcing coins to enable you to build up your settlement and recruit the locals to join said settlement and enable you to build it up even further.
You will need to keep expanding your kingdom and taking up more of the island, eventually you will come across a ship which if you can repair you can leave the island and sail to a new island, the ultimate aim is to completely rid the islands of your enemies the Greed.
There is a two player option which will split the screen and allow you to share the workload locally or you can also play online.
This mode is a little more forgiving and has a more lenient penalty for dying.
The game is fun to pick up and play for a while however the lack of insight into what you are doing at the beginning can put people off and make you feel a little lost.
