Hero of the Kingdom II is a point-and-click-style adventure game with great artwork that brings a 90s nostalgia to the gameplay experience. Reminding me – look and feel – of games like King’s Quest, Betrayal at Krondor and the like. I immediately felt at home when I started playing.
What’s it about?
You and your sister leave your village after tragedy strikes. You find yourselves at a small coastal village, where you are taken in by an old man who seems to long for a family. There, you help the village and your sister until Pirates attack and take her from you. You repair the village and set out to find her.
You meet new people along the way, complete quests, learn to fish, find lost treasure and so on and so forth. You gain items, experience, gold and friends while you explore the fantasy landscape. You make your way through small farms, large cities, battle snakes, giant spiders and even zombies.
What did I think?
It’s an entertaining game that I’m about halfway finished. I’ve done one Let’s Play and am finishing the game up on my Twitch Stream. You come across of ton of different quests, most require you to help someone or do something. Others require you to find a lost item, which can be harder than it sounds due to the items being drawn in so effortlessly to the surrounding landscape. It’s simple and entertaining and exactly what I need right now. I enjoy the nature of the game, the lore behind it. The music and sounds are a bonus and it’s appealing to stare at for hours on end.
Do I recommend it?
If you enjoy simple, yet entertaining, then you’ll have to check it out. You can find it on Steam for $7.99.
