Outta This Kingdom

This whimsical journey starts when Rachel, the main character somehow being transported into a magical fantasy kingdom along with her cat, Martha. She has to join forces with Jake and other humorous characters to 'Outta This Kingdom'!

Well, well, well - we must first admit that Outta This Kingdom is a silly game. It has silly storyline and an unusual gameplay. However, in this case,  silliness' is not bad; it is actually quite good because this light-hearted game offers us something new apart from building kingdoms or tribes and it is  actually  fairly entertaining.

Outta This Kingdom is the game that the whole family can enjoy partly because of its lively storyline and partly because of its Candyland-style graphics. The graphics in this game is basically mind-blowing; colors are vivid and beautiful and characters are cute and adorable. The dialogues are fun to follow despite the  inconsistency of the annoying voice overs.

Outta This Kingdom plays like none of the Building/Time Management games ever existed. The game still based on the typical collect, build and upgrade gameplay, but the developers add a few nice twists. Each character has its own ability, such as, Martha who can find food and Jake who can do the hard job like fighting off enemies. Some items you found in the scene will also be added into your inventory (is this the first time that a Building/Time Management game has an inventory of its own?); the items can then be used in other areas on the map which add a nice extra gameplay. Many players would also be appreciated to know that Outta This Kingdom is not a timed game so you can enjoy every minute of it with no pressure or keeping up with the time.

What drags Outta This Kingdom down might be its clunky music; we do not know if it is the developers' intention to make the music fits the game or not but it is really not working since it is really irritating. The tutorial of the game is also  unnecessary  long and some players would definitely give up on the game before the tutorial even finish; apart from the beginning, the game is fast-paced.

To sum up, Outta This Kingdom is a delightful game to spend time with your family. It has unique gameplay and silliness in every aspects of the game; some might love it but some might not, try it by yourself!
