Kong knows it's filled with too much candy. So it's going to look how you like burning calories when you stop Ragnarok.
Today, the game studio launched Legend of Solgard, its first role-playing game (and first midcore mobile offer). Like Candy Crush Saga and Kings other offers, Solgard is a standalone game with in-app transactions on iOS and Android (you can download it now). It's developer is Snowprint Studios, as former king director of the product Alexander Ekvall cofounded in 2015 to create a midfield RPG. And that game is Legend of Solgard.
This is Kings' first launch since Royal Charm Slots by the end of 2017. Candy Crush Saga is still in the top 1
"Legend of Solgard is Kings first mid-competition, so this is a new genre for the company," a company spokesman said by email. "King has seen the centerpiece get a tremendous training in recent years and [it] seems to expand its portfolio of games in this popular mobile game genre with the launch of Legend of Solgard. The game provides new and compelling content to both Kings existing global player base and beginners.
In Solgard you do not run through a dungeon crawl and hack-thrash you through enemies, as you might be playing as Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter Champions. Instead, you're fighting a puzzle game and matching devices and request a game such as Puzzle Quest or Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, two outstanding hits from the late 2000s.
Solgard follows the story of Embla as she struggles to stop Ragnarok (at all ends of the world). The studio says it has become Norwegian folklore for this story (hence Ragnarok instead of another world-leading apocalypse) and the players will learn to learn to To make the most of their devices and creatures, adapt the tactics as they dive into the puzzle-RPG mechanics. You collect animals and undead critters (no, not fans of D & D live-play Critical Role Show) and wyrms, and Valkyries and little people who dwarf.
"The game combines the excitement of the puzzle combat with the collection of original characters from a world rich in Nordic mythology. Your character strengths and abilities level up as you do when you fight enemies and bosses in the various game modes," said a king spokesman email.
I spent dozens of hours of Clash of Heroes on Nintendo DS and my PC and I'm interested in seeing if the Legend of Solgard hit the same kind of tactical puzzle.
