Kingdoms of Camelot on Facebook
I just thought I’d blog a bit about Kingdoms of Camelot, an application on Facebook that I have been using, or rather a game that I have been playing. I am currently doing ok on it, rising slowly up in the world. I have a confession to make though this is a game that has taken over my life just a little bit. I try to play it or check up on things every day, mostly I manage this unless I have some work to do or some people to see.
Reason I thought I should blog about it is to just let people know this a nice little application, its basically real time strategy, building your little kingdom up, you can on the face of it have two cities. I have two now, don’t particularly think it was properly thought through though, my new city is not protected like the other one probably because in theory you can transport troops to defend your new city, but in my eyes its pointless having troops defend your city as the attackers always have at least several hundred troops more than you, maybe even thousands. It is annoying when you get attacked several times in a few days and don’t have any money to build your army, upgrade things to defend against these people.
The other problem with this game though is the gems, there is no way of getting gems in the game so far other than spending real money, meaning a little facebook application wants you to spend money on free games, again not a big fan of paying for applications or extra features, kind of hate the temptation being in my face too, I won’t do it so don’t wave it in my face that I can’t have it. Don’t give us 10 measley gems either cos they can’t buy anything decent and its probably fixed so that you can’t win anything worthwhile on that box game to win stuff.
The concept is pretty awesome, again the building times are annoying meaning the game takes over your life a bit. Also this combines with the lack of ability to get gems, my suggestion would be to be able to steal them from people or barbarians or get them when doing court activities. I shall continue playing on, see what the rest of the game brings.
An application worth a look if you like building and empire type games, or even just want something to take up ages in your life. By the way you don’t have to take up all your time, you can just play it every week or month or anything, just don’t expect to do much on it!
