My Kingdom for the Princess III (by Nevosoft) is an iPad strategy game where you (as the youngest of 3 brothers) are tasked with challenge of building a thriving kingdom in order to win the hand of the princess in marriage — but the odds are against you for obvious reasons. This game is the follow up to My Kingdom for the Princess and My Kingdom for the Princess II, although I haven’t played the previous, I can say this game delivered a nice combination of action, strategy, as well as a classic good-vs-evil-underdog-type story. The storyline of the game is set around a beautiful Princess (aren’t they all?) who is going to be wed to 1 of the 3 brothers. The 3 brothers are given land to develop and the one who raises the most profitable kingdom with what is given, is the one who wins the hand of the Princess in marriage. The evil older brother gets the top choice piece of land with the best resources, the glutton middle brother also gets a good piece of land with plenty of resources, and then you have the youngest brother who gets the stinky swamp land with very few resources — but he’s the one who dearly loves the Princess.
Playing as the youngest brother you start out in the first game pack called Inception and play through 12 large, re-playable levels working your way to the second game pack called Betrayal. You’re given a list of tasks on each level including recovering an artifact, which helps to complete a shield or amulet puzzle to complete the game pack. You are also challenged with completing other tasks like repairing bridges, growing food, killing wolves, and more — all before the sun goes down. You perform activities by tapping and sending workmen to cut wood, gather food, gather gold, and repair or build things, as well as other duties like killing bad guys. You will need resources, particularly food for every single action; wood and gold are the other resources you will need. You balance resources with your task completion, trying to complete each level as fast as possible to obtain the high score. An interesting feature that the developers added to this app is the opportunity for you to see the developers’ score and try to beat this, which adds a bit of additional incentive and competitive aspect to the game. There are a few power-ups that appear on the bottom of the game board for each level and vary in what they do. Examples of power-ups are increased worker speed, an extra worker for :30 seconds, and faster resource replenishment — all of which help you to complete your tasks quicker.
There are several bonus levels, one is protecting your cottage from wolves, which is a very simple tap to kill the wolves and a test of reflexes (although I wish this level was a bit harder, but the change in gameplay was nice). I played through more than half of the Inception game pack and found the game to be a lot of fun. You tap to send workers to do activities, but at times due to lack of resources, your workers sit while resources replenish. I had to look ahead and strategize on what activities to complete first so that I always had something to do and resources to build — or I was wasting time. This game is easy to learn how to play and has very basic navigation that makes it easy to focus on having fun while playing this game. There is a free version for this game, as well as the 2 preceding titles. Be sure to watch the My Kingdom for the Princess III iPad App Video Demo for a complete look at this iPad Games application.
