Risen Kingdom

Risen Kingdom

Update: I really enjoyed doing survival, where did you get the idea for the zombie cave system and loot pickups? I like designing the perfect strategy around sealing caves and loot pickups.

I like it it’s cute, the upgrades are interesting, in particular I like the hold position bonuses as that gives incentive to use something I almost never use. The main thing I don’t like about the game is sometimes it feels pretty cramped, I guess the idea is to make it more strategic but sometimes you just want a massive army of archers xD

Risen Kingdom is really fun rts/tower defence game. The art style gives it a unique character. The gameplay is very well-balanced and allows you to choose a strategy that fits your play style. The length of levels is also good and you’ll get through the campaign at a good pace. Survival mode offers a bit more of a challenge where you really have to commit to your strategy. It’s very satisfying to see your defence mow down hordes of zombies. The only downside is that you end up doing a lot of waiting in the last level, “The Great Seige” but for all the pros this is really barely even a con. Otherwise, there are a few quality of life improvements that could be added like speed controls and formations. I would highly suggest this game if you want a fun, relaxing rts/tower defence experience that won’t take too long to finish. I’ll definitely be watching out for any dlcs or sequels.

I’ve never played games of this genre. This is amazing! The levels are slowly becoming more difficult, which does not allow me to relax and even more draws me into the game. This game deserves more

I like old-style games, so I decided to buy this game, as it reminded me of the games of my childhood, well, let’s start with the pros of the game:

  • You need to think through your steps to be successful in this game

  • Intuitive interface, looks good

Disadvantages of the game:

I don’t really like the graphics, I think it looks too old, I’ve seen a few old-style games, but they used the new game development technologies, they looked very good and enticing

First off, don’t listen to the people with the aiming issues, they simply don’t know how to play the game and lick heavily in gaming skills.

Great little game and if you watch the trailer you know what to expect. Price is right.

Blood gore from battles is great.

Menu music is dominating.

Sound of goats alone makes the game that much better.

Take it from someone who has actually played the game for longer than it takes to get a refund…Recommended.

Don’t forget to check my guide, it will increase the hours.

Missions were pretty easy, but fun, and when turning on hard mode it became more challenging. Nice defense game, and all units have their uses and are unique, and that goes for both the enemy and yourself. Strategy comes from where you put your fire superiority, as well as your defenses. Shooting is RNG ridden, meaning your men or the enemy will miss sometimes, which makes for interesting gameplay.

Survival mode gave a pretty good challenge, and I’ve only beaten round 25 so far. Because of RNG, you can get screwed in the later levels of the survival mode when they concentrate all their vehicles on one side of your base. Regardless, it’s a fun mode to play with a video in the background. Similar to the missions, strategy comes from unit placement and where a majority of your units are facing, but as the levels progresses, it gets hard to concentrate your fire power, so you have to think of other ways of overcoming this.

This is an old and fun game that used to be sold by the standalone developer. It’s a shame strategies are not still posted, for it can really be challenging to win. Music soundtrack is pretty iconic… I don’t think the developer supports it anymore but if you’re into magic duels then you’ve probably spent worse money than this.

It’s “TUG-OF-WAR” with fireballs and techno-liches.

Other games come to mind, like

“Aeon Command” (space battles)

“Samurai vs Zombies Defense” (goofy samurai warfare)


“Puzzle Chronicles” (the illegitimate child of Tetris and Mortal Kombat)

These game elements are constant:

  • try to hold the line

  • manage your defences

  • beef-up your attacks

  • spam your enemies to death

In Magi, you start by opening magical “channels.” These channels enable your spells and strengthen them. Then, it’s a real-time battle as you queue-up spells for casting. It’s like the building queue in Starcraft or Civ… only it’s your shield spell, or a magic missile, or summoning an imp. As your mage is casting one spell, you have time to set up the next. And the next. You can plan a bit… or panic. Apparently, I’m still fond of panicking.
