Kingdom Two Crowns Nintendo Switch Trailer
Playing a knight on horseback moving along a 2D landscape. You are telling your army to where to build and where to defend. You will need to build farms and cut down trees, this is all to support your growing army and defensives.
Characters will walk up and down the level until weapons or tools are crafted. They then grab them and start working or prepare to attack. You can also pay for more people to join in the battle. Exploring either end of the game will give you treasure chests and the portals from which enemies will spawn. There isn’t much of a tutorial, so I did spend a lot of my time finding ways to fail. Structures and armies upgrade over time, and you can even sail to other islands when you get boats.
I am in love with the retro 8-bit style of the game. There are little animations in the trees and reflections in the water which show a lot of work has been put into this. But in handheld mode, I did get a bit of stuttering, especially if a lot of stuff was happening.
There are a day and night cycle in the game, so while you gallop across the game the sun will slowly set. You will experience different kinds of weather. It can be quite relaxing to play.
The left and right travel time is a nice twist on the game. This can mean that armies may take a day to move across the battlefield. You have to bear this in mind, as anyone outside at night will be robbed.
Getting lonely on that battlefield? Don’t worry, you can have a friend join you. Local multiplayer means you can have a sofa buddy help out, you can even use single joy cons.
You can change your horse to a couple of different options, each having their own special abilities. This includes a stag who can lead deer back to camp like some pied piper. A nice addition was the option to load the game with a different skin based on a Japanese setting.
Kingdom Two Crowns is a great game to look at, but its slower-paced game style may put some players off. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
