No common sense at all

“The population is scared by the terrorists! Please, suspend the payment of taxes this year.” Uh, how do you expect that to solve anything? You don’t ask a kingdom for help, and suddenly, everyone dies. “I saw strange lights in the kingdom last night. Maybe it’s a sign that my destiny is to rule this kingdom.” Yeah, then a monk says scholars are convinced and that it’s a miracle. You don’t adopt a son, and your military gets stronger. The citizens get freaky with each other every time you work with other countries, because the population increases every time. The list goes on and on and on and on. The developers used no common sense in any aspect of this game. Plus, the voices are annoying as can be. A breathy “BLOHCHEWDASKOO” or “BLEEKHEHLEH” for example. Is that a language? Not even close. USE. COMMON. SENSE.

Fun

I liked it lots still think it be awesome to play on my Apple Watch instead of just my phone

@mosleading review

@the guy calling the review misleading... the game actually does have a story, it just takes strategy and understanding the pattern of events to dive through the story. The cards are “a mish mash” because that’s just how life works, but the king and the devil actually have character progression, a plot, and honestly it’s pretty intense and entangling. Admittedly gave up a hundred times because I’m dumb, but after you get what you’re doing because you actually READ THE DIRECTIONS and get the hints, you actually have a great time

Really Good

I really liked the game, I alteady finished with all endings, got all deads,all titles except 200 years ruling, and now I’m trying to see all cards in the game. I want to ask how many cards exactly are in the game. I got 860 and it’s not still all. Can you give me a hint to where to look at for other cards?

Agreed misleading reviews

I bought this because of the great reviews. I’m now wondering if Where I missed out. Not impressed. This isn’t a game. If it’s a choose your own adventure the lessons on cause effect were missed.

Boring random garbage

Title says it all. What I waste.

Boring

The game mechanic is ridiculously simple. Basically, you get a random event and make one of 2 selections, which leads one or few of your 4 parameters to grow or drop. When one of the parameter is too high or too low - you lose. The is no real story, development or consequences.

Repetitive random tasks

This game requires a lot of random swiping left and right. It gets repetitive since you can’t control what happens. There is a loose plot but most decisions are random. There’s not even instructions about how to play. I felt this was a waste of time.

LOVE

GREAT GAME YUM YUM SKELETON ROOM= torch+fire+arsenic+wall+pentagram+devil

very unusual...

...and a lot of fun. Don’t expect this to be a straight-forward game and you’ll probably have a lot of fun. Unless you’re a sour-puss, like certain reviewers here...

Great Game! Well Worth The Money

I've seen this game before a few other times, and I got curious, so I bought it. Ever since the first swipe, I loved this game. It looks straightforward, but there is so many things you can do, and a very interesting story, especially when you go for the good ending. I won't spoil anything about the story but I will say that you will need some paper to write on if you go for the good ending. The humor is great, and it has some pretty funny moments. (Like the Dragon cards) I've beaten this game about six times and I know how to get Excalibur, the good ending, and most of the achievements. I love the fencing mechanic, and the great insults during the fight. And by the way, there are about 29 deaths in the game, and I have discovered 27 of them. It will take a while to 100% complete, but it's a good achievement. I would recommend this to anybody with a few dollars and thinks this game looks interesting.

not very entertaining

I got bored in 10 mins. It doesn’t involve that much strategy. The plot is not funny either.

Zero stars!

This is a massive waste of money. It should be a free game because it has no point, no continuity, no rewards and most importantly, no fun! I feel cheated for buying it. I wish I could get a refund. I don’t see how this piece of garbage game won the awards they claim it did.

Binary Choices, Boring Consequences

This game had such great reviews, I decided to give it a try, but it's quite tedious and repeditive. It's simply a series of binary choices and really mundane objectives. It's akin to a text based game from the 80's, but far less interesting. And it has this really odd obsession with the devil. Save your money and your time, this game is a real stinker.

How is this getting good reviews

Ill tell you what this game is, its a bunch of random questions that make no sense. Its not an rpg, there is no story. You juggle meters that move up or down depending on how you answer the questions. Game is over if one of the meters gets too low. Its boring and i deleted it after a couple plays.

I wouldn’t recommend this game

The game has arbitrary consequences that don’t make sense as you play. There is no really story line. Additionally, I believe this game is homophobic. If you end up in a homosexual relationship the consequences that follow force you to be killed each time.

APPLE WATCH!!!!!!

Please bring this to the Apple Watch. PLLLLEEEAAASSEEEEEE. It would be perfect!!!!

BEST GAME EVER!!!

I love this app and I want more reigns!

Don’t listen

Don’t listen to all these people here. It isn’t that bad. It’s actually good, next to Her Majesty. 11/10 would reccomend.

Not what you think...

So I got this as a recommendation from a friend, but it was not worth my money! Contrary to popular belief, your choices DO have consequences in this game, and the cards can seem random at times but there is a subtle storyline in it. Would not recommend for kids under 12 as there is some language from some of the characters and several of the characters are... suggestive... in nature. Also, I finished this with about 9 hours of gameplay; it’s too short, and once you’re done, that’s that. Overall, fun game, I enjoyed the challenge, but it should’ve been free 😕

Brilliant

The construction and writing in this game are fantastic! Playing through repeatedly is rewarding as you unlock new deaths and scenarios. Highly recommended!!

I have no words.

If you are a history nerd like me, then you will love this game. It just brings a whole new feel of luck and making sure your king doesn’t die.i have been playing for a month and i am still addicted. I have a suggestion for a massive update for the future. I think you should be able to enter a new era like the renaissance or the modern ages. Like I said this is just awesome.

There’s a story here... it’s just hidden

There is a storyline if you pay attention, but it’s hard to figure out, and when you do you still have to play a few rounds before you get to make the next meaningful decision. It’s a good game, and I don’t regret buying it: but be prepared to pay attention, and be patient.

Stuck

I’m in my second kingdom and i just met the barbarian and I’ve entered a loop. No matter what I do It keeps giving me the same options. Everything I do it says it charms the barbarian and I’m not telling the translator guy to leave. It clearly is making me do something that hurts my kingdom in some way which is bs. Clearly why have set it up so you can’t get past a certain amount of years until you have died a certain amount of times. I wish I could get my money back since clearly the decisions you make don’t even matter.

Homophobic

Some of the cards are offensive. In one of them, from a male courtier early on, the description is that he “likes being face down, if you know what [he] means.” Next seg nudge wink wink?! I’m not sure what the merit is of having that failed “joke” in there.

Amazing For A Strange Concept

It took me a while to understand this game, and truthfully I didn’t commit to paying 3 dollars for it for many months and only played it on my friend’s phone. It took observing him understanding the consequences, story, goals, and progress for me to become invested. It seems empty and bland, but it takes noticing small changes and remembering conversations to understand the plot. And yes, it is HEAVILY effected by the player’s decisions. (It has three endings based on those decisions; it really has four if you count never figuring it out as an ending) By the end I was heartbroken I couldn’t play any more. This game is not for everyone but for those who do enjoy it will be completely enchanted.

Ecks Dee

When I was asked to rate it and said yes it boosted my stats to anarchy and I lost kek

Fun Game of Chance

I’m not sure why anyone is giving this game a bad review. The pictures and description tell you exactly what to expect from this game. The more cards you unlock, the more vast your story can become. You will ALWAYS die no matter what. That’s the point of the game. HOWEVER, you can rule wisely and die of old age. That is how you “beat” the game so to speak. My advice is quit being so serious and enjoy the satire. This game is supposed to be comical and once again, you are SUPPOSED to die. I think it’s worth the price.

Apple Watch support

First off this is a great game with a surprising amount of depth for what it is. A real gem. I would love if you guys could figure out a way to make it work with the watch. Would be so amazing for quick plays while waiting around for a minute or two and not wanting to pull your phone out. There's so few good games for the watch and this would be a great addition.

little rhyme or reason

this is not a pick your own adventure kind of thing. you just pick the response you think will best affect the 4 things (idek what to call them). however, it's so hard to tell if the answer will positively or negatively affect them. I thought maybe once I played it a while I would understand it better but nope it's still just as confusing. its nice visually but that doesn't make up for it's unplayability. huge waste of money.

Wow

I have been meaning to play this game for a long time but it is not what I expected so wow I love games that make me say wow

You can’t be serious!

I wonder how this apparently simple game should get a lot of fuss, is it about money? How much have the developers do you think might have paid to be in the spotlight? Practically speaking, the game has its own untold rules, affecting your throne-keeping time in a way that is not revealed unless after making a choice: pretty experimental I’d say. So if you’re bored, I’d say there’s much better choices that can entertain you much better than this, in my view, Game-of-Thrones-heat-exploiter.

Amazing games with many hidden jokes.

This gam did incredible and fun. Some times I haven’t been able to tear myself away from it. Also 10/10 on the Trump jokes with the birds.

Nice!

My favorite game app I’ve ever had. I get bored of and delete other game apps within weeks, but I’ve had it for about a year and still play it from time to time. Its entertaining, intriguing, and a great time waster when your bored, on a road trip, at the DMV, exc. The app has lots of cool little details and theres always something new to be discovered every time I play.

Its nice

It has a story about as useful as sandpaper at a beach, but in this game what really matters is to try over and over with an attitude completely different then your last play through.

Freezes but fun game

I love this game but it keeps freezing on me and makes me unable to play it. I have an iPhone SE

Game_over

It was dark. I see myself now. I see others for them true selves also. Ashamed sight did not return sooner.

This game Does have a story

Not getting far enough in to the game to see the story is not the same as it not having one

Hell yeah!

1st off, im grateful the dev didn't just edit someone else's code... it is truly unique on a scale of originality compared to Monument Valley 1 and 2. I love the randomness of it, and i love how it exercises my brain, instead of dehumanizing it like most “crush saga’s” do... *cough cough*. Wake up world, we are wiping ourselves out, one device at a time, one 3D printer, one robot at a time.. AI kills Thank you dev for stimulating me!

Realms

Good game. Get old after a while but fun time waster. With there was a bit more variety in the cards though.

It is so dumb of it RESTARTS EVERYTHING

It is really fun and addicting but it is so heartbreaking when you don't break the curse and you fail. It just ticks me off.

Meh

This game was decent, but I can’t say anything about the next one. In my experience games run by SJW feminists are always ruined, like the incompetent feminist swuad that made Mass Effect Andromeda.

Wonderful game for phone

I own this on Android and iOS. Perfect for a phone. Simple UI. Game can even be played for a minute or two. Quirky.

Great game with fun choices.

This game is great to play on public transports. The king lives (the actual game) can be super short to pretty long. (Ranging from few years (couple seconds) to a full long life (10-20 minuets) ) and the best part is that even tho the main game is about the short life’s of kings and prett much each time u start a new kings life the game starts a new. There is actually an overall story that progresses along the family tree from king to king. Things that can actually speed up the demise or success of your current king. Hope my explanation confused enough people to actually give this game a fair try...cuz it’s AMAZING AF!!!🔥💯

Some options don’t make sense

This game has no real story, don’t get confused about that. It’s “pick y so you get x, sometimes later”. Choices connect in superficial ways: resources. And some decisions result in outcomes that make no sense. Like you would expect it to be beneficial but it is not, for no apparent reason.

Like Dictator but Better

I really enjoy playing this game. I just read about how convoluted and complicated it can be to "win" the game, but I don't care. I'm not even trying to win.

Skeleton in the dungeon is OP/a wizard plz nerf

While in a dungeon I met a skeleton and my first move was to defend and it showed my shield was raised but the skeleton ended up lunging and stabbing straight through and I died

Good game

Thee game is a good game but becomes repetitive if you play often or in long sessions reducing in appeal over time . I feel this could be helped by adding a slightly different style of cards as time goes for different eras. Not new technologies or historical correspondence but new scenarios as the timeline progresses rather than only adding at the beginning or when you meet new characters.

Biggest waste of money

Shouldn’t be able to charge for this. Mad I got suckered in to paying for it. Horrible game.

Super good game

It is a very mid evil and awesome game the whole world revolves around your choices.And I just love how there is like over 50 problems, deaths, and people.👍🏻👍🏻🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
