Kingdom Chronicles

MeaghanReady to get dragged into an undeniably captivating strategy and resource management building game? Kingdom Chronicles by Aliasworlds casts you in the role of humble do gooder John Brave, resident unlikely hero hero. I know what you're thinking, been there done that. But wait! It's not only about being sexy and knowing it while having damsels in distress swooning in their tallest tower prisons. I promise.

Kingdom ChroniclesJohn Brave arrives in his native land after a long voyage to discover the sinister Moomrabac has nabbed the throne from King Edward and locked him away, and poor Princess Jane has been snatched and imprisoned as well. So, unlike us regular people who would probably scamper off somewhere to drown our sorrows in some unhealthy substance or another (hello cookie dough), John Brave takes it upon himself to right the wrongs of the treacherous Moomrabac. Town by town, quarry by quarry, troll by troll, it is your good fortune to be in charge of fixing the problems for those who would otherwise grumble about autocracies and being oppressed.

At the beginning you're presented with a map showing the winding path you must travel to rescue the realm. Similar to games like My Kingdom for the Princess, Rescue Team, and Roads of Rome, you need to guide groups of workers to gather items, including logs, food, gold, and stones, build buildings or clear the road of troublesome debris. Resources you gather can be used to repair or upgrade structures in each level, allowing you to erect lumber mills, houses that earn rent, town halls, stone quarries, and so on. Later, you even have to fight off barbarians and hire clerks to collect rent!

Each level comes with a set of tasks you must complete in order to proceed. The faster you complete the stage, the better reward medal you'll get. The strategy comes from choosing which order to perform tasks, as it's not always a completely linear path from A to B. Should you clear the stones from the road first, or go ahead and set up the farm to create food? How about guiding the workers, which tasks should they focus on, and how efficiently can you direct them? It's a little bit of simulation and a little bit of time management, and it all falls together in a perfectly handsome way.

Kingdom ChroniclesAnalysis: The "building" genre has become more and more crowded in recent years, with a few very big series taking off and attracting everyone's attention. So how do you make yourself stand out in a world filled with Build-a-lots? You do it by making smart design decisions. Kingdom Chronicles was created for players and fans of the simulation building genre. Things like workers pausing after completing a task in case you have another job for them or the extra-handy queueing system that allows you to chain together actions so you can focus on the game, not where your minions are, really make a difference. The handful of little gameplay tweaks along with the game's flawless presentation add up to something very big in the end.

Kingdom Chronicles has that "just one more level" ability to keep you clicking until way past your bedtime. With several hours of content available it's easy to immerse yourself in this world that seems to be abound in resources. The game pacing is perfect for beginner and expert alike because it starts off easy but increases in difficulty towards the end, especially for those who really want to make it through with all gold medals. Different achievements add another layer of fun because getting that little medal mid-level fuels on that resource collector in you. The cartoon graphics are endearing and the plot lines are worth reading if you need a good chuckle.

For those newly introduced to this genre or those who are seasoned veterans, Kingdom Chronicles is a fun reminder of how good a resource management game can be. Sure, you may feel like you've collected that stupid log more times than you can count, but then you upgrade your quarry and bam!, you're back in full swing. If you're looking for a game with a silly narrative and gameplay that will keep you glued to your computer screen for longer than you should ever admit to then look no further!

  • Focus on a way to first rebuild the broken walls where robbers can enter and steal rent or resources.

  • Your farm will provide you with food, and the Trader will exchange 3 of your gold to give you 2 stones.

  • The Cyclops is suppose to be upset about something, but I think he just wants you to work for him to get him food and then gold so he will move along for you to clear the road.

  • Your goals are to help the Cyclops, repair the road, and get the Magic Crystal.

  • In order to leave his first stop blocking the road, the Cyclops wants 30 food, but to get him to move from his second stop, you will have to give him 30 gold.

  • Once you have made the Cyclops happy with food and gold, he moves a body length and then complains he can't get into his cave, so you need to remove the huge rocks to get rid of him.

  • The Trader with swap you 6 food to get 3 gold, so your farm and fisherman are important.

  • Screenshot

Episode 13: Happy Town

  • The Mayor seems to think their town only needs you to build them a barracks to defend against robbers since there is a mercenary camp nearby.

  • There seems to be plenty of wood around because everything is built, except the barracks, but if you need more wood, the Elder says he can help for 20 food and 10 gold.

  • Screenshot

  • Did you notice the crack in the ground in the last screenshot? Because it seemed to have spread by an earthquake, and now the town is divided in sections, and cottages are in ruins.

  • You are stranded with only the farm and berries as your resources once you collect the few other resources you can get to.

  • Then a "strange place" appears over one part of the canyon which requires the town clerk to investigate at the cost of 2 food and 2 gold.

  • Upon investigation, he discovers a bridge underneath that you can build to cross over to see the Elder as soon as have sufficient resources.

  • When you pay him, the Elder will produce 30 piles of wood, and there is also another strange place to have investigated.

  • Eventually, there will be 8 strange places, marked in magenta in the screenshot, with bridges to build so you can reconnect the town.

  • Once you have enough wood and can get to them, you can rebuild the cottages and build the barracks.

  • Remember to recharge your skills.

  • Screenshot

Episode 14: Serpentine Road

  • Two barracks have been ruined, so you will eventually have to repair them so the warriors can destroy the enemy barricades marked in turquoise in the screenshot.

  • Since the road winds around, the storage hut that you need to build halfway will help your workers be more efficient.

  • Your ultimate goal is to collect another Magic Crystal.

  • Remember to recharge your skills and to collect as many resources as you can before the enemies appear.

  • Since the left barracks is barricaded, you will need to build the right one first so you have a warrior to destroy the barricade.

  • Screenshot

Episode 15: Here Come the Trolls

  • The Trolls have been summoned, so you now have a new nuisance to deal with.

  • You goals are to collect 200 food, repair 2 bridges, and destroy 3 enemy barricades (marked in turquoise in the screenshot).

  • Screenshot

Episode 16: Troll Tricks

  • Your goals are to restore 7 ruined cottages, destroy 8 enemy barricades (marked in turquoise in the screenshot), and collect 100 gold.

  • You are definitely going to need another worker to help gather everything and destroy the huge stones in front of the barracks.

  • All the lumber lying around will help you repair the cottages, but once you get the cottages repaired, you will also need another town clerk, so you will need to upgrade Town Hall.

  • Upgrading the barracks is another good plan, so you have 2 warriors to stop the intruders from stealing your gold.

  • Screenshot

Episode 17: Good Fishing

  • This location has good fishing until the mercenaries come and burn down most of the structures, destroy the bridges, and put up 3 barricades blocking their camps.

  • You now need to rebuild as well as destroy 6 enemy structures marked in turquoise in the screenshot.

  • Try to get as many resources as you can before building the barracks and dealing with the Trolls who come to attack.

  • You definitely need two workers to do all that running around, but you can get by with just one warrior.

  • Screenshot

  • Your ultimate goal is to collect the Magic Crystal that is in the middle of the lake.

  • When all the enemy structures are destroyed, the Elder appears on the scene with an offer to freeze the lake for 300 food and 30 gold.

  • You now have a new goal of collecting the necessary resources so you can run out on the frozen lake to collect the Crystal.

  • Screenshot

Episode 18: Ambush the Trolls

  • It appears that the only way to deal with the Trolls is to fight them, so you will need to rebuild the ruined barracks.

  • Your additional goals include rebuilding the guard arch and finding the Magic Gear.

  • You will also need to destroy 4 enemy structures (marked in turquoise in the screenshot), plus the barricade marked in green that a mercenary puts up once the barracks is built.

  • In order to get to the guard arch, you will once again need to deal with the Cyclops, who wants 10 food.

  • Since the only structures you have to produce resources are the gold mine and quarry, you will need to collect everything you can and then rely on the traders.

  • The female trader will exchange 4 gold for 4 food, and the male trader will take 4 stones to give you 4 wood.

  • The Elder has a deal for you and will produce food if you give him 5 gold.

  • When you satisfy the Elder, he will create a berry bush and a skill charger in the tree area in the upper right corner.

  • Once you feed the Cyclops, he will wander off, leaving behind the Magic Gear that will install itself as the Produce Skill, which makes production 3 times faster.

  • Collect everything you can before building the barracks, and remember to charge your skills.

  • You will eventually need to upgrade your worker's hut in order to build the guard arch, and you will need to have two warriors to remove the large barricade at the end of the road.

  • Screenshot

Episode 19: Hot Spring Peak

  • Your goals are to collect 150 gold and 150 food, as well as to clear the road to the peak because the trolls plugged up the hot spring with boulders.

  • Your only source for food until you build the farm and clear the road is the trader, who will give you 3 food for 3 gold. Upgrading your buildings will get you more production.

  • Other than debris and potholes, there are also 3 barricades that will need to be removed.

  • There are two strange places, circled in magenta in the screenshot, that need to be investigated by the town clerk.

  • Screenshot

  • The 2 strange places turn out to be a quarry and lumber mill.

  • When the Hot Springs are repaired, you will get a skill charger to use.

  • Screenshot

Episode 20: Clear the Pass

  • Your goals are to destroy 11 enemy structures (marked in turquoise in the screenshot) and repair the 2 ruined barracks.

  • Repairing the 2 barracks will get you 4 warriors to deal with the trolls and mercenaries, but you will need to upgrade your hut to get 2 workers.

  • There are two traders to help balance the resources since there are no resource producing buildings and the mercenaries are stealing all the food.

  • The upper trader will turn 3 stones into 2 gold, and the lower trader will give you 4 food for 3 gold.

  • Screenshot

Episode 21: Market

  • The Cyclops is back, so one of your goals is to get rid of him for 20 food and 30 gold.

  • Your other goals are to build a market that will give you resources you are missing and to upgrade 3 cottages to level 2.

  • Once you give the Cyclops what he wants, he's still taking up space so you can't build the cottage and collect the gold.

  • Now he wants a bridge built over the canyon, so you will need to upgrade town hall in order to have two clerks investigate the strange place at a cost of 20 food and 60 gold.

  • Screenshot

  • In order to build the bridge, you now need 20 food, 30 wood, 30 stones, and 60 gold.

  • Once the bridge is finished, the Cyclops goes off to his resting place, and all you need to do is build the last cottage, upgrade it to level 2, and you're done.

  • Screenshot

Episode 22: Up A Creek

  • In order to get the Magic Crystal, you will have to build 11 bridges that were flooded out, destroy 4 enemy structures, and build 2 cottages to level 3.

  • Two traders are available: the male will give you 2 wood for 3 food, and the female wants 6 gold in exchange for 8 stones.

  • Since there is no quarry in this location, you will need to trade to get stones.

  • Each bridge (marked in gold in the screenshot) requires 4 food and 5 wood to build it.

  • Remember to recharge your skills.

  • Two workers are a definite advantage, and you will need to upgrade your barracks for 2 warriors to remove the large barricade.

  • Screenshot

Episode 23: Enchanted Forest

  • The main road is overgrown by the enchanted forest, so you won't be able to go through it without the help of the Elder. Your main goal is to find that road, which means you have to give him whatever he wants so he will help you.

  • The Elder wants 20 gold for his help in clearing the forest.

  • You don't have many resources, but the trader is willing to take 4 food to give you 3 wood.

  • You do have a gold mine and a farm you can build, as well as the quarry after you upgrade to another worker and enough food to clear away the huge pile of stones.

  • Screenshot

  • The Elder cleared part of the forest and revealed another trader, who is willing to give you 5 gold if you give her 6 stones.

  • You need to repair the road to get to the Elder, who now wants 40 gold to clear more of the forest.

  • Screenshot

  • More of the forest has been cleared, but you now have additional goals of repairing the road and building the guard arch.

  • The Elder is still hanging around and will clear the rest of the forest for 80 gold, so you might want to think about upgrading the gold mine for greater production.

  • Screenshot

  • Once you pay off the Elder, you only have one more road repair and you're on your way.

  • Screenshot

Episode 24: The Swamp Sage

  • The Elder says you must go to North Swamp because there is something interesting there, and he will reveal the road for 20 gold.

  • A swamp ghost has shown up, but you don't need to deal with him.

  • Your goal is to collect 100 stones and find the road to North Swamp.

  • You will also need to repair a ruined swamp fairy statue and have your warrior destroy 2 enemy structures.

  • Remember to use your special skills.

  • Screenshot

  • Once the road to the North Swamp is revealed, you will need to rebuild the log road in sections at a cost of 3 food, 4 wood, and 3 gold per section.

  • Removing the 2 huge piles of stones marked in green in the screenshot will get you 12 stones from each.

  • Once the swamp fairy statue is repaired, the swamp ghost will disappear, revealing a new barricade behind him.

  • When the barricade is removed, you can finish the road, so once you have collected your 100 stones, you will be on your way.

  • Screenshot

Episode 25: The Ice Key

  • In order to free the King, the Elder tells John he will need the Ice Key that is sealed in a block of ice in the Frozen Glade.

  • For 20 gold, the Elder will reveal the secret place where the ancient Stone Circle must be built in order to get the key to Fire Mountain.

  • There are 2 traders: the one on the left will give you 4 gold for 5 wood, and the one on the right requires 8 food to give you 6 stones.

  • There are 2 swamp fairy statues to be rebuilt so you can get rid of the swamp ghosts.

  • Screenshot

  • The Stone Circle has been revealed, and it needs 5 stones to be built by 5 workers, 10 food, 20 wood, 40 stones, and 20 gold.

  • Your only source of gold is the trader who wants wood in exchange, so you will need to upgrade your lumber mill to give you greater production.

  • To get 5 workers, you will also need to upgrade your main hut to give you a total of 4 workers because the secondary hut cannot be upgraded.

  • Once the ancient stone circle is built, you will need to upgrade it.

  • The upgrade to level 2 requires 5 workers, 60 food, 10 wood, 60 stones, and 40 gold.

  • Your only resources are wood and food, so you are now at the mercy of the traders.

  • You may want to again upgrade your Lumber Mill to more wood and pick it up as fast as it is produced.

  • Once the Ancient Stone Circle is upgraded to level 2, you can collect the Ice Key.

  • Screenshot

Episode 26: Swamp Ghosts

  • All the trails are guarded by swamp ghosts, so you can go no farther unless you drive the 4 ghosts away and repair the road.

  • There is a trader to exchange 5 food to give you 6 stones.

  • Once you build the town hall, 3 strange places (marked in magenta) will appear for your clerk to investigate at a cost of 8 gold each.

  • Screenshot

  • When investigated, the strange places turn out to be ruined swamp fairy statues, each requiring 10 food, 6 wood, 20 stones, and 10 gold to repair.

  • I suggest repairing the statues in the order numbered in the screenshot.

  • Once you get rid of the first ghost, you get access to the skill charger and create another strange place to be investigated.

  • The second statue will give you closer access to the skill charger, and the third will give one worker the task of repairing the road while the other collects resources.

  • The fourth strange place requires 2 clerks to investigate, so you will need to upgrade town hall before you can tackle that task.

  • Screenshot

Episode 27: The Bridge of Heroes

  • The Bridge of Heroes has been destroyed, and it will take 3 workers, 50 food, 30 wood, 50 stones, and 200 gold to repair it.

  • In addition, you need to build 3 level 3 cottages that you can't get to until the bridge is repaired, or you build the 2 wood bridges marked in gold.

  • The bridges are a definite priority because the robbers come and burn the town hall and carry off all the gold.

  • To stop the enemy, you can build the 2 outposts marked in turquoise.

  • You will then need to rebuild the town hall so the clerk can collect the rent from the cottages, so build the fisherman hut to get enough food and the market for other resources.

  • Since you can't do all of this by yourself, another worker will become essential because you are going to be at the mercy of the robbers until you can get enough resources.

  • With all the running around once everything on your side of the bridge gets built, you may want to consider upgrading to the third worker you will need to build the bridge.

Episode 28: Ambush Ahead

  • The enemies are hiding in the boulders, but there are 3 warriors to forge the road ahead as soon as you build a level 3 barracks for them.

  • There are 4 enemy structures your warriors need to remove.

  • Since there doesn't seem to be any place for the barracks in sight, the Elder says he can help with that for 10 food and 10 gold.

  • Once you build the first level of the barracks, act fast to catch the mercenaries who come from the rocks by the skill charger, or they will burn down your storage hut.

  • Also note that you will need 3 workers to build level 3 of the barracks.

  • You also need to clear and repair the road and collect 50 gold.

  • Screenshot

Episode 29: No More Road

  • The Trolls have blocked the road with boulders so you have 23 blockages to remove to clear the road.

  • There's a trader willing to sell you 6 wood in exchange for 4 stones, which should be plentiful with all the blockage.

  • Town hall is already upgraded to 2 clerks, but the cottages are in ruins, so until you can rebuild the cottages they can check out the strange place.

  • Screenshot

Episode 30: Combat Skills

  • Your goal for this Episode is to get the Magic Sword.

  • The trader will give you 7 wood in exchange for 4 stones.

  • The barracks and quarry are in ruins, there are 20 enemy structures to destroy, and 2 bridges (marked in gold) to build.

  • When you move the blockage in the road, marked in green, the Magic Sword transfers to the rock in the middle of the lava flow.

  • Be sure to upgrade your farm once it is built because it is your only source of food other than the berry bush.

  • You will also want to get the bridge built by the storage hut because it's a long way to go around.

  • Screenshot

Episode 31: Merchantville

  • Your goal is to collect 100 food, rebuild all the buildings, and build 2 guard arches.

  • The guard arches will first appear as special places to be investigated. The arch locations are shown in the screenshot.

  • There are 3 traders: #1 will take 5 gold for 8 stones, #2 will take 4 gold for 8 wood, and #3 will take 4 gold for 12 food.

  • Since gold is the big trading resource, you will want to get your gold mine started, your town hall rebuilt, and your cottages restored.

  • You will need another worker as well as an additional town clerk to keep up with the pace, and telling all of them what to do will be a challenge for you too.

  • Eventually, you will need 3 workers to upgrade your barracks to 3 warriors to remove the large barricade.

  • Screenshot

Episode 32: The Quarries

  • Your goal is to restore the 6 quarries to level 4 and collect 1000 stones.

  • The Cyclops says the mercenaries are coming, so you need his help for 20 food.

  • There are 2 traders: the female will give you 10 wood for 6 food, and the male will give you 12 food for 8 stones.

  • After you first feed the Cyclops, he moves along the path to a second stop and offers to block the road to save you from the mercenaries at a cost of 20 food and 20 gold.

  • When you next pay off the Cyclops, he makes his third stop and says that if you give him 50 gold that the mercenaries won't bother you.

  • I'd suggest not upgrading the quarries beyond level 1 until you get help from the Cyclops; otherwise a mercenary will come and destroy it.

  • Upgrading the gold mine will get you gold faster, and keeping up your food supply from the berry bushes will let you buy wood for the upgrades.

  • The Cyclops' fourth stop is blocking the road, so you can now save up for your upgrades.

  • There are also 2 bridges to be built, one of which will get you access to the skill charger.

  • Screenshot

Episode 33: A Shortcut

  • The Elder is back with an offer to reveal a shortcut to Fire Mountain and says he won't ask for much in return, but the price is 50 gold.

  • Other than finding the shortcut, you will need to repair the road and remove a large barricade that will require 3 warriors, 18 food and 20 gold.

  • Screenshot

  • As you start collecting resources, the road will change from the left fork to a right fork with several resources and access to the skill charger.

  • Screenshot

  • After you pay off the Elder, the right fork disappears in the fog and the left fork reappears with additional barricades.

  • Once you build the barracks, trolls begin appearing from the fog where the right fork was.

  • After you remove the two small barricades to get to the skill charger, mercenaries enter from that path.

  • When the first large barricade is removed, there is another small one that appears, so you will be removing a total of 7.

  • Screenshot

Episode 34: Fire Mountain

  • You have arrived at Fire Mountain and need to destroy 9 enemy structures and smash the Red Rock before you find the door to free the King and his men.

  • The trader will give you 7 wood if you supply him with 8 food, and the Elder says that you will need more food to defeat your enemies and that he will supply it if you give him 10 food.

  • You begin with two workers and will gain another one when you restore the other hut.

  • The Elder produced two berry bushes, but you can't get to them until the barricade is removed.

  • Smashing the Red Rock will require 5 workers, 50 food, and 50 gold.

  • Once all the barricades have been removed, it becomes difficult to collect resources with all the enemy running around, so I found it helpful to keep one warrior near the barracks to catch the troll who come in from the lower left road and is close enough to destroy structures.

  • Screenshot

Episode 35: Gold Rush

  • The gold mining town has been burned to the ground, so you need to build 6 gold mines, collect 500 gold, and repair the road.

  • Collect all the available resources, build the farm for food, and look out for the mercenary who will come down the path behind the farm to steal the food.

  • There are 2 traders: the male trader will give you 7 wood for 3 of your gold, and the female trader will collect 3 gold and give you 7 stones.

  • You will need the clerk from town hall to investigate each strange place, marked in magenta in the screenshot, in order to uncover the gold mines.

  • There are 3 outposts, marked in turquoise, you can build to block the mercenaries.

  • Screenshot

  • In addition to the farm, there is a rock table, marked in green, that will provide you with food and gold.

  • Once built, you will have 3 level 1 gold mines and 3 level 2.

  • Screenshot

Episode 36: Logging

  • Your goal is to get the Magic Crystal and collect 500 wood, but first you will need to rebuild the 4 lumber mills which are level 1 through 4.

  • To get the Magic Crystal, you are going to need to build a bridge, but all of the lumber mills have been destroyed.

  • Town hall, 2 cottages, a storage hut, and 3 bridges (marked in gold) have also been destroyed.

  • There is a trader available to provide you with 8 stones for 8 wood, so you need to get the lumber mills working.

  • The stone table, marked in green, keeps refilling with food and stones.

  • You will need 2 clerks to investigate the 2 strange places that become the bridge foundation. See the magenta marking in the screenshot.

  • Once the bridge is built and you have the Crystal, you can concentrate on the side of the river with the lumber mills until you collect your 500 wood.

  • Screenshot

Episode 37: The Last Crystal

  • Your goal is to get the Magic Crystal and destroy the enemy barricades.

  • The Cyclops is blocking your path to the tower and the gold mine, and he wants 30 food to move.

  • There are also 2 bridges you need to build to cross the river.

  • As usual, the Cyclops doesn't move far, so he now wants 30 food and 30 gold.

  • Just when you have enough to pay him off, a new Cyclops plants himself at the door of the tower and won't move unless you give him 100 gold.

  • Time to build the barracks, remove the barricade, and get the cottages producing gold.

  • Eventually, you will need 3 workers to build the barracks to level 3 because you need 3 warriors to destroy the big barricade.

  • Screenshot

Episode 38: The Flying Ship

  • The Elder has returned with a new proposition. If you give him 50 gold, he will tell you where you can build a flying ship to use in your rescue of the Princess.

  • Screenshot

  • Once paid his gold, the Elder opens up the whole center of the scene with a skill charger, stone table with food (circled in green), and the Flying Ship foundation.

  • In order to build the Flying Ship, you will need your 2 workers, 30 food, 20 wood, 30 stones, and 20 gold for level 1.

  • For level 2, you need 4 workers, 100 food, 60 wood, and 120 gold.

  • Screenshot

  • With Crystals in hand, John flies off to rescue Princess Jane, and fortunately for us, he must decide where all the Crystals go on the tower, so watch the scenes.

  • After too much time staring into each other's eyes, the King reminds John they must still finish the journey.

Episode 39: The Sword of Black Pond

  • The King informs John that they need the Magic Sword of the Black Pond in order to overcome Moomrabac, because he will be hiding in his enchanted fortress on Castlerock.

  • You will need to repair the wharf and get your hands on the Black Pond Sword.

  • Gold is the big resource you will need because there are 3 traders, and all of them will only trade for gold.

  • As numbered in the screenshot, trader 1 will give you 5 stones for 4 gold, trader 2 will give you 6 food for 4 gold, and trader 3 will give you 7 wood for 4 gold.

  • All the cottages are level 2, so when you have the resources to build them and the town hall, they will more quickly produce gold.

  • Everything in the town has been destroyed and will need to be rebuilt.

  • To rebuild the entire wharf will require 3 workers, 50 food, 40 wood, 10 stones, and 10 gold.

  • There is a special place to investigate at the pond that will reveal how to get to the sword.

  • The first most important tasks to finish are to build the outposts, marked in turquoise, to keep the mercenaries from stealing all your resources.

  • After investigating the strange place, it is revealed that you will be building a stone path to the sword at a cost of 10 food, 5 wood, 20 stone, and 30 gold for the first section with an escalation of workers needed as well as resources.

  • There also seems to be an endless supply of gold and stone from the gold vein circled in yellow because it doesn't disappear once you tap into it.

  • Screenshot

  • The second section requires 20 food, 15 wood, 20 stone, and 20 gold.

  • The third stepping stone requires 3 workers, 30 food, 30 wood, 40 stones, and 30 gold.

  • Once you build the wharf, 3 ships will dock.

  • Each one wants to be loaded with the following resources.

    1. Ship 1 can be loaded with 200 gold.

    2. Ship 2 can be loaded with 200 food and 200 wood.

    3. Ship 3 can be loaded with 200 stones.

  • After you load each ship with its requirements, it will sail away.

  • Once you have completed this new goal, you will be able to move on to your final location.

  • If necessary, just keep going to the trader, who provides wood until you get the 200 you need to send off the last boat.

  • Screenshot

Episode 40: Castlerock

  • You have reached your final location where Moomrabac is holding up in the King's castle and has destroyed Castlerock.

  • Your goal is to repair the wharf, rebuild all the buildings, destroy the 12 enemy barricades, and repair 3 bridges.

  • The Elder shows up after the mercenary camps are destroyed and offers to clear out all the enchanted bushes for 80 gold.

  • Your warriors will have mercenaries, robbers, and trolls to keep them busy.

  • As a hint, we are told to complete the tasks in the order listed in order to earn a gold medal.

  • Once the wharf is completed, a ship will arrive, but will leave once all the traders have disembarked.

  • Screenshot

  • The first trader will give you 13 stones for 8 gold, the second trader will provide 12 food for 8 gold, and the third will sell you 14 wood for 8 gold.

  • You will need to upgrade both of your barracks because once all the bridges, marked in gold, are built, you will need 6 warriors, 60 food, and 150 gold to take down the barricade in front of the castle door.

  • Screenshot

  • Watch John destroy the gates with the magic sword from the Black Pond, as well as the rest of the ending, for you have finished your journey and restored the true King to his throne.

  • Screenshot

  • Did you notice the crack in the ground in the last screenshot? Because it seemed to have spread by an earthquake, and now the town is divided in sections, and cottages are in ruins.

  • You are stranded with only the farm and berries as your resources once you collect the few other resources you can get to.

  • Then a "strange place" appears over one part of the canyon which requires the town clerk to investigate at the cost of 2 food and 2 gold.

  • Upon investigation, he discovers a bridge underneath that you can build to cross over to see the Elder as soon as have sufficient resources.

  • When you pay him, the Elder will produce 30 piles of wood, and there is also another strange place to have investigated.

  • Remember to recharge your skills.

  • Screenshot

Episode 14: Serpentine Road

  • Two barracks have been ruined, so you will eventually have to repair them so the warriors can destroy the enemy barricades marked in turquoise in the screenshot.

  • Since the road winds around, the storage hut that you need to build halfway will help your workers be more efficient.

  • Your ultimate goal is to collect another Magic Crystal.

  • Remember to recharge your skills and to collect as many resources as you can before the enemies appear.

  • Since the left barracks is barricaded, you will need to build the right one first so you have a warrior to destroy the barricade.

  • Screenshot

Episode 15: Here Come the Trolls

  • The Trolls have been summoned, so you now have a new nuisance to deal with.

  • You goals are to collect 200 food, repair 2 bridges, and destroy 3 enemy barricades (marked in turquoise in the screenshot).

  • Do as much as you can before you need to build the barracks and the Trolls come, and always remember to charge your skills.

  • Screenshot

Episode 16: Troll Tricks

  • Your goals are to restore 7 ruined cottages, destroy 8 enemy barricades (marked in turquoise in the screenshot), and collect 100 gold.

  • You are definitely going to need another worker to help gather everything and destroy the huge stones in front of the barracks.

  • All the lumber lying around will help you repair the cottages, but once you get the cottages repaired, you will also need another town clerk, so you will need to upgrade Town Hall.

  • Upgrading the barracks is another good plan, so you have 2 warriors to stop the intruders from stealing your gold.

  • Screenshot

Episode 17: Good Fishing

  • This location has good fishing until the mercenaries come and burn down most of the structures, destroy the bridges, and put up 3 barricades blocking their camps.

  • When all the enemy structures are destroyed, the Elder appears on the scene with an offer to freeze the lake for 300 food and 30 gold.

  • Screenshot

Episode 18: Ambush the Trolls

  • It appears that the only way to deal with the Trolls is to fight them, so you will need to rebuild the ruined barracks.

  • Your additional goals include rebuilding the guard arch and finding the Magic Gear.

  • You will also need to destroy 4 enemy structures (marked in turquoise in the screenshot), plus the barricade marked in green that a mercenary puts up once the barracks is built.

  • In order to get to the guard arch, you will once again need to deal with the Cyclops, who wants 10 food.

  • Since the only structures you have to produce resources are the gold mine and quarry, you will need to collect everything you can and then rely on the traders.

  • The female trader will exchange 4 gold for 4 food, and the male trader will take 4 stones to give you 4 wood.

  • The Elder has a deal for you and will produce food if you give him 5 gold.

  • When you satisfy the Elder, he will create a berry bush and a skill charger in the tree area in the upper right corner.

  • Once you feed the Cyclops, he will wander off, leaving behind the Magic Gear that will install itself as the Produce Skill, which makes production 3 times faster.

  • Collect everything you can before building the barracks, and remember to charge your skills.

  • Your goals are to collect 150 gold and 150 food, as well as to clear the road to the peak because the trolls plugged up the hot spring with boulders.

  • Your only source for food until you build the farm and clear the road is the trader, who will give you 3 food for 3 gold. Upgrading your buildings will get you more production.

  • Other than debris and potholes, there are also 3 barricades that will need to be removed.

  • There are two strange places, circled in magenta in the screenshot, that need to be investigated by the town clerk.

  • Screenshot

  • The 2 strange places turn out to be a quarry and lumber mill.

  • When the Hot Springs are repaired, you will get a skill charger to use.

  • Screenshot

Episode 20: Clear the Pass

  • Your goals are to destroy 11 enemy structures (marked in turquoise in the screenshot) and repair the 2 ruined barracks.

  • Repairing the 2 barracks will get you 4 warriors to deal with the trolls and mercenaries, but you will need to upgrade your hut to get 2 workers.

  • There are two traders to help balance the resources since there are no resource producing buildings and the mercenaries are stealing all the food.

  • The upper trader will turn 3 stones into 2 gold, and the lower trader will give you 4 food for 3 gold.

  • Screenshot

Episode 21: Market

  • The Cyclops is back, so one of your goals is to get rid of him for 20 food and 30 gold.

  • Your other goals are to build a market that will give you resources you are missing and to upgrade 3 cottages to level 2.

  • Once you give the Cyclops what he wants, he's still taking up space so you can't build the cottage and collect the gold.

  • Now he wants a bridge built over the canyon, so you will need to upgrade town hall in order to have two clerks investigate the strange place at a cost of 20 food and 60 gold.

  • Screenshot

  • In order to build the bridge, you now need 20 food, 30 wood, 30 stones, and 60 gold.

  • Once the bridge is finished, the Cyclops goes off to his resting place, and all you need to do is build the last cottage, upgrade it to level 2, and you're done.

  • Screenshot

Episode 22: Up A Creek

  • In order to get the Magic Crystal, you will have to build 11 bridges that were flooded out, destroy 4 enemy structures, and build 2 cottages to level 3.

  • Two traders are available: the male will give you 2 wood for 3 food, and the female wants 6 gold in exchange for 8 stones.

  • Since there is no quarry in this location, you will need to trade to get stones.

  • Each bridge (marked in gold in the screenshot) requires 4 food and 5 wood to build it.

  • Remember to recharge your skills.

  • Two workers are a definite advantage, and you will need to upgrade your barracks for 2 warriors to remove the large barricade.

  • Screenshot

Episode 23: Enchanted Forest

  • The main road is overgrown by the enchanted forest, so you won't be able to go through it without the help of the Elder. Your main goal is to find that road, which means you have to give him whatever he wants so he will help you.

  • The Elder wants 20 gold for his help in clearing the forest.

  • You don't have many resources, but the trader is willing to take 4 food to give you 3 wood.

  • You do have a gold mine and a farm you can build, as well as the quarry after you upgrade to another worker and enough food to clear away the huge pile of stones.

  • Screenshot

  • The Elder cleared part of the forest and revealed another trader, who is willing to give you 5 gold if you give her 6 stones.

  • You need to repair the road to get to the Elder, who now wants 40 gold to clear more of the forest.

  • Screenshot

  • More of the forest has been cleared, but you now have additional goals of repairing the road and building the guard arch.

  • The Elder is still hanging around and will clear the rest of the forest for 80 gold, so you might want to think about upgrading the gold mine for greater production.

  • Screenshot

  • Once you pay off the Elder, you only have one more road repair and you're on your way.

  • Screenshot

Episode 24: The Swamp Sage

  • The Elder says you must go to North Swamp because there is something interesting there, and he will reveal the road for 20 gold.

  • A swamp ghost has shown up, but you don't need to deal with him.

  • Your goal is to collect 100 stones and find the road to North Swamp.

  • You will also need to repair a ruined swamp fairy statue and have your warrior destroy 2 enemy structures.

  • Remember to use your special skills.

  • Screenshot

  • Once the road to the North Swamp is revealed, you will need to rebuild the log road in sections at a cost of 3 food, 4 wood, and 3 gold per section.

  • Removing the 2 huge piles of stones marked in green in the screenshot will get you 12 stones from each.

  • Once the swamp fairy statue is repaired, the swamp ghost will disappear, revealing a new barricade behind him.

  • When the barricade is removed, you can finish the road, so once you have collected your 100 stones, you will be on your way.

  • Screenshot

Episode 25: The Ice Key

  • In order to free the King, the Elder tells John he will need the Ice Key that is sealed in a block of ice in the Frozen Glade.

  • For 20 gold, the Elder will reveal the secret place where the ancient Stone Circle must be built in order to get the key to Fire Mountain.

  • There are 2 traders: the one on the left will give you 4 gold for 5 wood, and the one on the right requires 8 food to give you 6 stones.

  • There are 2 swamp fairy statues to be rebuilt so you can get rid of the swamp ghosts.

  • Screenshot

  • The Stone Circle has been revealed, and it needs 5 stones to be built by 5 workers, 10 food, 20 wood, 40 stones, and 20 gold.

  • Your only source of gold is the trader who wants wood in exchange, so you will need to upgrade your lumber mill to give you greater production.

  • To get 5 workers, you will also need to upgrade your main hut to give you a total of 4 workers because the secondary hut cannot be upgraded.

  • Once the ancient stone circle is built, you will need to upgrade it.

  • The upgrade to level 2 requires 5 workers, 60 food, 10 wood, 60 stones, and 40 gold.

  • Your only resources are wood and food, so you are now at the mercy of the traders.

  • You may want to again upgrade your Lumber Mill to more wood and pick it up as fast as it is produced.

  • Once the Ancient Stone Circle is upgraded to level 2, you can collect the Ice Key.

  • Screenshot

Episode 26: Swamp Ghosts

  • All the trails are guarded by swamp ghosts, so you can go no farther unless you drive the 4 ghosts away and repair the road.

  • There is a trader to exchange 5 food to give you 6 stones.

  • Once you build the town hall, 3 strange places (marked in magenta) will appear for your clerk to investigate at a cost of 8 gold each.

  • Screenshot

  • When investigated, the strange places turn out to be ruined swamp fairy statues, each requiring 10 food, 6 wood, 20 stones, and 10 gold to repair.

  • I suggest repairing the statues in the order numbered in the screenshot.

  • Once you get rid of the first ghost, you get access to the skill charger and create another strange place to be investigated.

  • The second statue will give you closer access to the skill charger, and the third will give one worker the task of repairing the road while the other collects resources.

  • The fourth strange place requires 2 clerks to investigate, so you will need to upgrade town hall before you can tackle that task.

  • Screenshot

Episode 27: The Bridge of Heroes

  • The Bridge of Heroes has been destroyed, and it will take 3 workers, 50 food, 30 wood, 50 stones, and 200 gold to repair it.

  • In addition, you need to build 3 level 3 cottages that you can't get to until the bridge is repaired, or you build the 2 wood bridges marked in gold.

  • The bridges are a definite priority because the robbers come and burn the town hall and carry off all the gold.

  • To stop the enemy, you can build the 2 outposts marked in turquoise.

  • You will then need to rebuild the town hall so the clerk can collect the rent from the cottages, so build the fisherman hut to get enough food and the market for other resources.

  • Since you can't do all of this by yourself, another worker will become essential because you are going to be at the mercy of the robbers until you can get enough resources.

  • With all the running around once everything on your side of the bridge gets built, you may want to consider upgrading to the third worker you will need to build the bridge.

  • Screenshot

Episode 28: Ambush Ahead

  • The enemies are hiding in the boulders, but there are 3 warriors to forge the road ahead as soon as you build a level 3 barracks for them.

  • There are 4 enemy structures your warriors need to remove.

  • Since there doesn't seem to be any place for the barracks in sight, the Elder says he can help with that for 10 food and 10 gold.

  • Once you build the first level of the barracks, act fast to catch the mercenaries who come from the rocks by the skill charger, or they will burn down your storage hut.

  • Also note that you will need 3 workers to build level 3 of the barracks.

  • You also need to clear and repair the road and collect 50 gold.

  • Screenshot

Episode 29: No More Road

  • The Trolls have blocked the road with boulders so you have 23 blockages to remove to clear the road.

  • There's a trader willing to sell you 6 wood in exchange for 4 stones, which should be plentiful with all the blockage.

  • Town hall is already upgraded to 2 clerks, but the cottages are in ruins, so until you can rebuild the cottages they can check out the strange place.

  • Screenshot

Episode 30: Combat Skills

  • Your goal for this Episode is to get the Magic Sword.

  • The trader will give you 7 wood in exchange for 4 stones.

  • The barracks and quarry are in ruins, there are 20 enemy structures to destroy, and 2 bridges (marked in gold) to build.

  • When you move the blockage in the road, marked in green, the Magic Sword transfers to the rock in the middle of the lava flow.

  • Be sure to upgrade your farm once it is built because it is your only source of food other than the berry bush.

  • You will also want to get the bridge built by the storage hut because it's a long way to go around.

  • Screenshot

Episode 31: Merchantville

  • Your goal is to collect 100 food, rebuild all the buildings, and build 2 guard arches.

  • The guard arches will first appear as special places to be investigated. The arch locations are shown in the screenshot.

  • There are 3 traders: #1 will take 5 gold for 8 stones, #2 will take 4 gold for 8 wood, and #3 will take 4 gold for 12 food.

  • Since gold is the big trading resource, you will want to get your gold mine started, your town hall rebuilt, and your cottages restored.

  • You will need another worker as well as an additional town clerk to keep up with the pace, and telling all of them what to do will be a challenge for you too.

  • Eventually, you will need 3 workers to upgrade your barracks to 3 warriors to remove the large barricade.

  • Screenshot

Episode 32: The Quarries

  • Your goal is to restore the 6 quarries to level 4 and collect 1000 stones.

  • The Cyclops says the mercenaries are coming, so you need his help for 20 food.

  • There are 2 traders: the female will give you 10 wood for 6 food, and the male will give you 12 food for 8 stones.

  • After you first feed the Cyclops, he moves along the path to a second stop and offers to block the road to save you from the mercenaries at a cost of 20 food and 20 gold.

  • When you next pay off the Cyclops, he makes his third stop and says that if you give him 50 gold that the mercenaries won't bother you.

  • I'd suggest not upgrading the quarries beyond level 1 until you get help from the Cyclops; otherwise a mercenary will come and destroy it.

  • Upgrading the gold mine will get you gold faster, and keeping up your food supply from the berry bushes will let you buy wood for the upgrades.

  • The Cyclops' fourth stop is blocking the road, so you can now save up for your upgrades.

  • There are also 2 bridges to be built, one of which will get you access to the skill charger.

  • Screenshot

Episode 33: A Shortcut

  • The Elder is back with an offer to reveal a shortcut to Fire Mountain and says he won't ask for much in return, but the price is 50 gold.

  • Other than finding the shortcut, you will need to repair the road and remove a large barricade that will require 3 warriors, 18 food and 20 gold.

  • Screenshot

  • As you start collecting resources, the road will change from the left fork to a right fork with several resources and access to the skill charger.

  • Screenshot

  • After you pay off the Elder, the right fork disappears in the fog and the left fork reappears with additional barricades.

  • Once you build the barracks, trolls begin appearing from the fog where the right fork was.

  • After you remove the two small barricades to get to the skill charger, mercenaries enter from that path.

  • When the first large barricade is removed, there is another small one that appears, so you will be removing a total of 7.

  • Screenshot

Episode 34: Fire Mountain

  • You have arrived at Fire Mountain and need to destroy 9 enemy structures and smash the Red Rock before you find the door to free the King and his men.

  • The trader will give you 7 wood if you supply him with 8 food, and the Elder says that you will need more food to defeat your enemies and that he will supply it if you give him 10 food.

  • You begin with two workers and will gain another one when you restore the other hut.

  • The Elder produced two berry bushes, but you can't get to them until the barricade is removed.

  • Smashing the Red Rock will require 5 workers, 50 food, and 50 gold.

  • Once all the barricades have been removed, it becomes difficult to collect resources with all the enemy running around, so I found it helpful to keep one warrior near the barracks to catch the troll who come in from the lower left road and is close enough to destroy structures.

  • Screenshot

Episode 35: Gold Rush

  • The gold mining town has been burned to the ground, so you need to build 6 gold mines, collect 500 gold, and repair the road.

  • Collect all the available resources, build the farm for food, and look out for the mercenary who will come down the path behind the farm to steal the food.

  • There are 2 traders: the male trader will give you 7 wood for 3 of your gold, and the female trader will collect 3 gold and give you 7 stones.

  • You will need the clerk from town hall to investigate each strange place, marked in magenta in the screenshot, in order to uncover the gold mines.

  • There are 3 outposts, marked in turquoise, you can build to block the mercenaries.

  • Screenshot

  • In addition to the farm, there is a rock table, marked in green, that will provide you with food and gold.

  • Once built, you will have 3 level 1 gold mines and 3 level 2.

  • Screenshot

Episode 36: Logging

  • Your goal is to get the Magic Crystal and collect 500 wood, but first you will need to rebuild the 4 lumber mills which are level 1 through 4.

  • To get the Magic Crystal, you are going to need to build a bridge, but all of the lumber mills have been destroyed.

  • Town hall, 2 cottages, a storage hut, and 3 bridges (marked in gold) have also been destroyed.

  • There is a trader available to provide you with 8 stones for 8 wood, so you need to get the lumber mills working.

  • The stone table, marked in green, keeps refilling with food and stones.

  • You will need 2 clerks to investigate the 2 strange places that become the bridge foundation. See the magenta marking in the screenshot.

  • Once the bridge is built and you have the Crystal, you can concentrate on the side of the river with the lumber mills until you collect your 500 wood.

  • Screenshot

Episode 37: The Last Crystal

  • Your goal is to get the Magic Crystal and destroy the enemy barricades.

  • The Cyclops is blocking your path to the tower and the gold mine, and he wants 30 food to move.

  • There are also 2 bridges you need to build to cross the river.

  • As usual, the Cyclops doesn't move far, so he now wants 30 food and 30 gold.

  • Just when you have enough to pay him off, a new Cyclops plants himself at the door of the tower and won't move unless you give him 100 gold.

  • Time to build the barracks, remove the barricade, and get the cottages producing gold.

  • Eventually, you will need 3 workers to build the barracks to level 3 because you need 3 warriors to destroy the big barricade.

  • Screenshot

Episode 38: The Flying Ship

  • The Elder has returned with a new proposition. If you give him 50 gold, he will tell you where you can build a flying ship to use in your rescue of the Princess.

  • Screenshot

  • Once paid his gold, the Elder opens up the whole center of the scene with a skill charger, stone table with food (circled in green), and the Flying Ship foundation.

  • In order to build the Flying Ship, you will need your 2 workers, 30 food, 20 wood, 30 stones, and 20 gold for level 1.

  • For level 2, you need 4 workers, 100 food, 60 wood, and 120 gold.

  • Screenshot

  • With Crystals in hand, John flies off to rescue Princess Jane, and fortunately for us, he must decide where all the Crystals go on the tower, so watch the scenes.

  • After too much time staring into each other's eyes, the King reminds John they must still finish the journey.

Episode 39: The Sword of Black Pond

  • The King informs John that they need the Magic Sword of the Black Pond in order to overcome Moomrabac, because he will be hiding in his enchanted fortress on Castlerock.

  • You will need to repair the wharf and get your hands on the Black Pond Sword.

  • Gold is the big resource you will need because there are 3 traders, and all of them will only trade for gold.

  • As numbered in the screenshot, trader 1 will give you 5 stones for 4 gold, trader 2 will give you 6 food for 4 gold, and trader 3 will give you 7 wood for 4 gold.

  • All the cottages are level 2, so when you have the resources to build them and the town hall, they will more quickly produce gold.

  • Everything in the town has been destroyed and will need to be rebuilt.

  • To rebuild the entire wharf will require 3 workers, 50 food, 40 wood, 10 stones, and 10 gold.

  • There is a special place to investigate at the pond that will reveal how to get to the sword.

  • The first most important tasks to finish are to build the outposts, marked in turquoise, to keep the mercenaries from stealing all your resources.

  • After investigating the strange place, it is revealed that you will be building a stone path to the sword at a cost of 10 food, 5 wood, 20 stone, and 30 gold for the first section with an escalation of workers needed as well as resources.

  • There also seems to be an endless supply of gold and stone from the gold vein circled in yellow because it doesn't disappear once you tap into it.

  • Screenshot

  • The second section requires 20 food, 15 wood, 20 stone, and 20 gold.

  • The third stepping stone requires 3 workers, 30 food, 30 wood, 40 stones, and 30 gold.

  • Once you build the wharf, 3 ships will dock.

  • Each one wants to be loaded with the following resources.

    1. Ship 1 can be loaded with 200 gold.

    2. Ship 2 can be loaded with 200 food and 200 wood.

    3. Ship 3 can be loaded with 200 stones.

  • After you load each ship with its requirements, it will sail away.

  • Once you have completed this new goal, you will be able to move on to your final location.

  • If necessary, just keep going to the trader, who provides wood until you get the 200 you need to send off the last boat.

  • Screenshot

Episode 40: Castlerock

  • You have reached your final location where Moomrabac is holding up in the King's castle and has destroyed Castlerock.

  • Your goal is to repair the wharf, rebuild all the buildings, destroy the 12 enemy barricades, and repair 3 bridges.

  • The Elder shows up after the mercenary camps are destroyed and offers to clear out all the enchanted bushes for 80 gold.

  • Your warriors will have mercenaries, robbers, and trolls to keep them busy.

  • As a hint, we are told to complete the tasks in the order listed in order to earn a gold medal.

  • Once the wharf is completed, a ship will arrive, but will leave once all the traders have disembarked.

  • Screenshot

  • The first trader will give you 13 stones for 8 gold, the second trader will provide 12 food for 8 gold, and the third will sell you 14 wood for 8 gold.

  • You will need to upgrade both of your barracks because once all the bridges, marked in gold, are built, you will need 6 warriors, 60 food, and 150 gold to take down the barricade in front of the castle door.

  • Screenshot

  • Watch John destroy the gates with the magic sword from the Black Pond, as well as the rest of the ending, for you have finished your journey and restored the true King to his throne.
