  • You can hear the elevator pitch now: Kingdom micro-strategy meets Stranger Things… and it works

    While there are quite a number of great strategy titles on the Switch, none of them are quite like the slow-paced but quite satisfying Kingdom series. Previous versions have tended to have a more historical feel, with you managing your slowly-evolving empire and units on horseback. In this version you’ll instead be playing a teenager on a more modern steed, the iconic bike that kids of the 80s could absolutely always be found on. There’s absolutely a great mix of campy and creepy here, mixing the normal Kingdom aesthetic and dark creatures with a dash of Stranger Things and creepers wearing iconic masks from the era. All that said, this is overall much more of a reskin of the typical Kingdom play, which remains a bit slow but satisfying, rather than a revolution so it’s hard to say it’s a must-play unless you have nostalgia for the neon glow of one of history’s most iconic decades.
