Very relaxing to play
The same nice, quaint graphics as the first instalment
Nice RPG using point & click mechanics, and hidden-object elements
Easy to 100% (can be done in a single play-through)
Another simple, yet intriguing story
No real replay value
Can get a little repetitive
If you've seen my review of the first Hero of the Kingdom, then you've seen most of what's being said here, although I do feel the second instalment was an improvement to the first. There is a little more substance in regards to the story, but it's still very simple. That's not a bad thing, as one of the great things about Hero of the Kingdom is that it's so relaxing.
I found this one took a couple of hours longer to complete, and implemented several new items and objects in addition to the ones seen in the first game, so there were more hidden items to find, and more items to manage, trade, and use during your adventures. This does mean it can still get a little repetitive, but there's always the help button in the bottom corner if you're completely lost.
The graphics are still just as quaint, and the soundtrack is nice and fitting to the story and environments.
If you enjoyed the first one, chances are you'll enjoy this one too. I thought it was a decent improvement, and I'm sure I'll get round to enjoying the third instalment soon enough.
