In Kingdom: New Lands, you take on the role of a monarch struggling to build your kingdom up from nothing. Explore the lands for resources, recruit loyal subjects, and shore up your defenses — but make haste, for when nightfall comes, a dark and greedy presence awaits…

Kingdom: New Lands provides a welcome yet challenging & strategic experience for newcomers and longtime fans alike. Building upon the award-winning twist on tower defense gameplay and mystery of classic Kingdom, New Lands introduces an abundance of new content to the IGF-nominated title while maintaining the simplicity and depth that legions of monarchs have come to cherish.

Travel to the New Lands and welcome the deluge of new mounts, merchants, and vagrants that call these isles home, but be wary of the new obstacles that threaten your arrival - for not just the greedy creatures block your way, but even the environment itself can defeat you.

Be brave, ruler, and fight to the bitter end, lest these New Lands conquer you instead.

EXPLORE

Traverse the land on horseback to discover all the wealth, secrets, and unlockables that you can use to your advantage.

RECRUIT

Across the land, wandering vagrants await your orders. Spend gold to recruit them as loyal subjects to help build and bolster your kingdom.

BUILD

Do you need sturdier walls, or taller sentry towers? Farming plots or bakeries? As the leader of your people, shape and sustain your kingdom as you see fit.

DEFEND

The wisest of monarchs know that the night brings danger. Make sure you’re safe and well protected from the insidious Greed when the sun sets - if they steal your crown, it’s all over!

STRATEGIZE

Time and gold are both in limited supply. The army of Greed grows stronger with each passing day. The land, while plentiful, can also be harsh. Will you make the right choices of when and where to devote your resources?

Editors' Notes

How do you build a kingdom? By galloping around and flinging gold at people, then seeing how they help you. That’s the great thing about this deceptively deep survival game—how amazing you feel when you figure out everything from securing laborers to mounting defenses against monsters. And finding all the secrets (like a unicorn that drops gold) will keep you busy for ages.

Doesn’t hold your hand

Brilliant, brilliant game. It comes with no instructions. You learn how to rule as you go. You meet people, statues, animals and do on, and only through playing, making mistakes, and correcting earlier errors, do you get the most out of this game.

You will lose your crown many many times, but that’s fine, as you’ll want to return to this beautiful land over and over. Each time you return you will have discovered something new, tried a new tactic, or found something interesting on the map.

After many days, and goodness knows how many hours, I have finally completed the game. However, I see from the challenges listed in the trophy section that I have missed so much, so I am about to dive in and do it all again.

Brilliant gameplay, beautiful graphics, eerie atmospheric sound and music. Plus incredibly addictive. Worth every penny.

10/10 - one of my favourite games on the App Store.

Unforgiving and unintuitive

This game is beautiful and has a lot of potential. It’s a great concept with a lot of addictive qualities.

However, it’s very hard for a new player. There are a lot of things that you’ll only learn after a lot of stops and starts. The controls can be unresponsive - often I end up handing out coins on chopping trees instead of running. The AI on things like builders and archers is poor at best. They’ll die from their own stupidity.

Ultimately the game is very repetitive and unforgiving. I’ve repeatedly lost after long periods of play (with no idea what I’m doing wrong) and am now left feeling like I just want to delete the game so I stop wasting my time. This is especially true after moving to a new island. If you die here and restart, you do not restart with the coins and people from the previous island - making the game even harder than it already is.
