Kingdoms: Nobility Walkthrough

Kingdoms: Nobility is the sort of game you're going to want to play from hours and the addiction will start right from the beginning. This excellent city building strategy game challenges you to find a balance between growing and managing your burgeoning city; a balance which is rarely easy to find, especially as your city expands. There are two modes of play to choose from making the game appealing to everyone, regardless of what they are looking for in a city building strategy game. Choose to play in 'Free Play Mode' which gives you a little more freedom and is a little less intense than your second option, the five part 'Campaign Mode'. You get to watch as the citizens of your city chop wood, extinguish fires, farm and do various other things that will help your city thrive. Keeping your citizens happy is important as they are a key factor in helping your city survive and even thrive.

The basic premise of Kingdoms: Nobility isn't all that uncommon in the city building strategy game genre. Basically, you've been placed in charge of a small town that has the potential to grow and thrive. It's up to you to make that happen. The only real problem with this game is that for someone who is new to city building strategy games, the tutorial can leave a little to be desired. For that reason, many beginners will choose to move on to a less complicated game and that's a real shame. This is an incredible game that isn't nearly as difficult as it seems in the beginning. As you play, you'll get the hang of things, but you will need to get over that initial confusion. Stick with it. The game is well worth it.

Arable land has a yellow colored tinge and can be used for grain farms. Grain farms are important as they provide your town with grain. Building a grain farm will be your first task in the game. At the bottom left of the game screen you'll see a square panel that offers several options. The tutorial tells you to click on the build button from this panel. To find the build button, hover your mouse over the options until you find build. It's worth hovering over the other options to familiarize yourself with the different things you can do in the game. You'll need to use most of these options throughout the game, so taking a few moments to check them out in the beginning will save you time later in the game.

Once you've clicked build, a new panel will open in the center of the bottom of the screen. Choose 'raw materials' from this panel but, as you did with the icons in the square panel, take a moment to see what other options are available under the build menu. Clicking on raw materials will open a new panel in place of the build menu. You'll notice there are several different things you can select for raw materials, but for now, we'll stick to a grain farm. Choose farm. You might have trouble finding arable land to place your farm on but scroll around the screen for a few moments and you'll find it. With your farm in place, you'll need to build a path so people can get to it. The path button is found on the square panel directly below build. Connect your grain farm to a building or to an existing path and you're all done. It's time to move on the the bakery.

It can be a bit hard for newcomers to find the bakery in the tutorial level, but it's really just a matter of using logic. You're building something so you're going to start by choosing build. Look at the options in the build menu. You have residential, raw materials, industry, services, entertainment, education, religion and civic. It's just a matter of looking over the options and choosing what seems to best fit the building. In this case, services is clearly the best fit. Click on services and look for bakery. Click on the bakery and place it to begin construction. You can use this method to find pretty much anything you need in the game. Look at the options and find the best fit. Pretty basic stuff once you know what you're looking for.

Overall, Kingdoms: Nobility is an excellent city building strategy game that will challenge you to find the best possible strategy and stick with it throughout the game. The tutorial level may not be of much help to someone who has no experience with city planning strategy games, but with a little logic and a little exploration, even newcomers will be able to get the hang of the game. It can be frustrating to try to find the right balance between building and maintaining a solid pool of resources but finding that balance is necessary if you want to make it through the game. For newcomers, free play mode is the best option, at least in the beginning. more experienced players will love the challenge of the different options in campaign mode. This can be a difficult game, but if you use logic and carefully plan your strategy, you should be able to do well and grow your town into a thriving city.
