IMG Reviews Be a King!
7:44 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the medieval simulation Be a King! from Rake in Grass. As head of the kingdom, it is your job to make sure that everything is up and running as it should be. Here's an excerpt from the review:

Enter a village and you're in the heart of the game. The scale suddenly gets much smaller—in fact, it's just slightly larger than the village you're in. There are typically a few "starter" buildings scattered around, and the rest of the space is filled with scattered bare spots that indicate predetermined locations for additional buildings. Part of the strategy in this game—OK, about 90% of the game, really, is figuring out which buildings to put in the limited spaces you have, in order to meet the goals of each scenario. The buildings fall into four categories: dwellings, food-producing, defensive, and support. Support buildings are in effect another type of upgrade to the other three—they increase population limits, boost food production efficiency and so on. Your advisor, a rather high-strung, elderly gentleman, will tell you what you need to accomplish in order to meet your kingly goals for that round. He'll also apprise you if you are not meeting the fundamental human needs of your subjects: "Your peasants have no food! Build more farms!" etc.
