Posted by Mister Random on November 19, 2008

Game Details

  • Title: A Kingdom for Keflings
  • Developer: 
  • Released: 19/11/2008
  • Price: 800 Microsoft Points 
  • Age Rating:  Everyone
  • Game Type: Black and White crossed with Sim City 
  • Online Multiplayer: Cooperative up to 4 players

    One Sentence Review

  • Like Black and White with you as the Creature but not as much fun
  • Overview

    Graphics

    Fairly average but makes good use of Avatars

    Sound

    Fairly limited and the repetive cheery tune starts to get on your nerves after a while

    Gameplay

    A Fairly unique type of game, it is best described as Black and White crossed with Sim City as the aim of the game is to build a world for Keflings to live in and you are a giant (Can be your avatar or other prebuilt characters) and you have to build the buildings the Keflings live in using them to gather resources. This is all there currently is to the game however 

    Learning Curve

    Fairly short learning curve, should be able to get to grips with the game within 15 minutes

    Difficulty

    As all there is is world creation Very Easy

    Replayability

    Limited but there is the potential for user creativity which may add to the replayability of the game

    Flaws

    The main flaws with this game are the music, and the currently limited scope of the game as there is no competitive element in any game mode

    Overall

    This is a good way of showcasing how Avatars can be used in games, however at the moment there is too litle depth to this game for my liking, though it is fun to play

    Rating

    3/5 – Can be fun to play but there is little depth to the game at the present time
