When it comes to the browser games, there doesn’t seem to be anything surprising at all. At least in most of them. Even when they cross the media and become available for other platforms like iOS and Android, they rarely change or improve.
And that is exactly the case with Plarium’s Throne: Kingdom at War game, a strategy released in 2016 and still going strong even today with regular updates.
Throne: Kingdom at War is set in medieval times when mighty kings and heroes lived. You start off as a lord and progress from there. You build your settlement, protect it and form an army that will go and fight your enemies. First, you have to place the buildings like barracks for the troops in order to create an army. This is the same gameplay as with any other strategy out there, with constantly building structures and upgrading them so that you can level up.
Since the King of Amaria is dead, you have an opportunity to inherit the throne if you prove worthy. This means that if you are satisfied with your settlement, you can go to war with other lords and fight for the throne. The great thing is that there are other ways of dealing with other lords. Instead of fighting them, you can form alliances. By teaming up with other players you will increase your chance to win tough battles that would pose a problem if you were alone.
The game offers PvP and PvE combat which will require some serious strategizing even if you played similar titles before. Where it may be boring for those with experience in strategies, it will be a true delight for the novices. Just don’t rush into the fight until you are absolutely ready, but also make sure you have your defenses in place.
Being a free-to-play title, you won’t have to pay for the game, but you will be able to spend some real money if you want to move up faster. This is, however, not a rule to win battles or be a better player, it only speeds up certain things if you don’t want to wait.
The graphics are impressive and truly depict medieval times, only with less gloom than we are normally used to. You can see people moving in the settlement and doing their choirs, while every other interaction is a typical screen dialogue between you and the NPCs or your partners.
This may not be the best mobile strategy out there, but it’s okay for MMORTS fans who want to play something familiar. Throne: Kingdom at War has its flaws, but it’s an interesting game you can casually play or be very serious about it. It’s all up to you and what you prefer when it comes to strategies. All in all, give it a shot and tell us how you like the Throne: Kingdom at War in the comments.
