If you’re hungering for an old school game that throws you back to the time of Donkey Kong and Pacman, King Arthur’s Gold is just the right mix of retro and modern innovation. King Arthur’s Gold is a free to play multiplayer game that allows you to build castles, traps and siege engines.
You can also attack other peoples castles with those siege engines, as well as undermine their castles in an effort to collapse them. This fun strategy game is similar to The Escapist: Prison Escape, only instead of prisoners breaking out of prison, you’re trying to break into (and protect) castles.
Many ways to play
King Arthur’s Gold has a variety of different game modes, with the most popular being capture the flag. Capture the flag is just like it’s real life counterpart, where your team has to get a flag hidden on enemy territory while at the same time defending your own.
With a wide variety of options in how you can both defend and attack a castle, winning the game comes down to skill. You’ll need creative thinking and team effort to win the game.
Many roles to play
On top of having many different game modes, there are also 3 major roles to take during game play. This includes Builder, Knight, and Archer. These roles pretty much describe what each team member does. The builder works on creating castles, traps, and siege engines, while the knight and archer are preoccupied with fighting. Each role has a lot of functions and special skills that make them both unique and fun. Builders can create shops that allow you to buy things like catapults, knights can ride on their own shields to go faster, and archers have a grapple hook that allow you to swing across a battlement like Spiderman.
Wild game play for extreme fun
As you can imagine, with the sheer variety of items and skill sets available, games can get pretty wild. A battle can end up being filled with traps, flying characters, explosions, and more. While understandably, the game takes a lot of skill to play, it’s not so difficult that you will have trouble breaking in as a new player.
You’ll be able to understand what is going on in the game more or less right away, and gradually get better as you learn new skills. All in all it’s a really fun game to play, with enough features to keep you entertained for hours of fun gaming.
This game is a lot of fun. While the simple graphics may hold others back, some may genuinely love that pixelated, retro feel. There’s also a huge variety in how you can play, so no matter what fight style you have you’ll be able to find a role that suits you. If you’re looking for a fresh new game to try, this one is it.
