I’m not the biggest fan of Point & Click games, but this latest entry in the “Hero of the Kingdom” is as fun as the 4 earlier titles were. I don’t know what it is, maybe it is because it has not have the weird puzzles P&C games can have but this is just a relaxing game to play.
As with every entry in the series, at first, I feel like I might do something wrong and screw things up, but I should have known better by now as that never if the case. I love to just find a good way to make money early on so I can don’t have to worry about what I can buy, or how much I can eat. Another thing that I enjoy that this game has is the map which fast-travel spots to almost every scene, only the tunnels and caves are not listed on the map.
In case you were wondering, this series shares the name and the game mechanic, but every story is on its own, so you can start anywhere in the series or just check out which story idea sounds the most interesting to you. I quite enjoyed the story of this one, the plot can be seen from far away already but this isn’t the type of game to play for an exciting story, it is like comfort food, not exciting and still so delicious.
The game takes around 3,5h and has no missable achievements. After you finish the game you can go back and mop up the missing achievements. I would suggest clicking every krab/seashell and other stuff on each map at least till you have the achievements for it. In-game you can see the achievements (a button in your inventory) and also see your progress toward the achievement.
I hope that Lonely Troops will keep going with this series at the current pace. Not oversaturating the market but still keep making those fun games.
