Very interesting! But, I tried signing up for an account to get it, but it didn't work. Keeps saying I haven't ticked off the end user agreement, which I have... :S

Edit: Got it to work. I had to put in a business number (It didn't tell me I had to, and I don't have one anyway), and tick off agreeing to the end user agreement (Yeah...).

Only runs on 10.15 Catalina and up though, so I won't have any immediate usage for it.

I've played all four Hero of the Kingdom games, they're quite enjoyable casual games. #3 is the weakest.
Thanks! I can see MGS also has the first game, so I will definitely pick that one up. Steam has 3 + Tales also, so maybe I will get to them in time also.

I finished Hero of the Kingdom 2, and enjoyed it. 4/5 from me. A simple adventure, which boasts the largest number of fetch-quests, I have ever seen before, intermixed with hidden object gaming. The story is simple: Your sister is captured by pirates, and you have to find her! This is the only story there is for the first half of the game, so storywise it is pretty bland there. Fortunately it picks up halfway through, but the beginning could be a bit more interesting storywise. Gameplay is also simple - You pick up things, sometimes hidden on each map, and give them to people in order to get other things. Repeat at nausea! It does sound boring, but it is actually very relaxing, and there’s a soothing soundtrack to go along.

I enjoyed myself, and the repetitive nature of the game made me play for much longer than I should have, because I could just do juuuust one more thing before finishing. :P Graphics are as they are, but suit the game very nicely, and while detailed they are never so complex that you can’t find things.I recommend it for people that don’t want something filled with action, and something you can jump in and out of at any time.

Started up Hero of the Kingdom 2, not expecting much. But, I am actually enjoying it very much! It is an adventure game, with mixed in hidden things finding. I kind of like the old school look of it, and while the story isn't very deep (Save sister from pirates! Arr!), it is sweet and relaxing to play. It is in principle just a looooong series of fetch quests, mixed with finding hidden things, so there's not much to it. But I am enjoying it!
