I’ve played many chess-related video games throughout my life, some have been good, others, terrible. Most however, were simply unmemorable, and stuck in an everlasting, mediocore void. Unfortunately, I must say that Hexagonal Chess has also fallen into that category. To be fair, it goes slightly farther than most traditional Chess games, but fails to do so in a compelling way.

The PC game, BC Kings, by Mascot Entertainment, is an excellent real time strategy game with single player quests, multi-player capability, and a random map option for more versatility. After playing this game for several hours using the trial version, I was hooked. I am definitely planning on buying this game so that I can finish all the quests in single player mode and try out the multi-player and random map options.

Ever wanted to be a king without having to much worry about the consequences of potential failure? Then Be a King is probably worth playing.

The game’s title points to the object of the thing without any clever misdirection. You are a king. You’ve been given control of a troubled nation and must set things right by managing and improving towns while defending them from barbarian and monster raids. (The game doesn’t seem quite decided on whether they’re humans or monsters, not that it matters much overall.) Achieve pre-set goals in one town and you move on to the next, which is invariably more troubled than the last.

Be a King is, in essence, a stripped-down real time strategy game. It plays like a basic version of Age of Empires, with a dash of Civilization on the side: you collect taxes from your ever-growing populace, keep them happy by supplying food and maintain a beefy standing army, hiring heroes to complete quests and earn you some side cash. Combat is handled automatically by your barracks, though you may have to send out a hero or two manually if things get out of hand. There’s a lot less to it than most RTS games, of course, though that’s not always a bad thing as you can afford to split your attention without losing as a result.

In short, there’s just enough in Be a King to please gamers. The offering is robust enough to satiate players without overwhelming them with options, though veterans will doubtless find the easy-to-navigate menus a bit too simple, especially given that there aren’t a ton of buildings to play with.

The same goes for the graphics. Be a King isn’t UGLY by any stretch of the imagination, but it uses visuals not far removed from games dating back over a decade ago. The character portraits look kinda neat, with just a touch of exaggerated humor, though there’s nothing groundbreaking in the game. The same goes for the music, which gets old pretty quickly.

In the final analysis Be a King is a beginner’s RTS. It has all the elements needed to learn more complex offerings, and makes a nice bridge for players looking to start on difficult games like Civilization. It’s not terribly innovative, unfortunately, but what it does it does well, and for only $15 is easily worth its own price tag. 4/5

You should buy this game if:

– You like resource management
– You want a simpler version of an RTS game
– You wish you could hold sway over hundreds of lives

You shouldn’t buy this game if:

– You’re an RTS expert
– You want hordes of complex options at your fingertips
– You dislike repetitive music

Just occasionally, something comes along to knock your socks off, a new way of looking at games. Introducing Eufloria, apparently an ‘ambient real-time strategy game’ (according to the website). In which the player must colonize an asteroid belt, often by force, using little seedlings with lasers. It’s a simple enough idea, but challenging to master.

Wu Hing: The Five Elements is a game that most computer users will probably enjoy – so long, that is, as they can figure out what they’re doing. There’s a fair amount of complexity and not quite enough explanation in this title.

Smugglers 4 makes a great first impression by claiming to allow you to choose your profession, outfit your spaceship and venture forth on dangerous missions throughout the vast galaxy. I was intrigued and gave it a try. I didn’t regret it.

The storyline is absolutely wonderful. There are just enough interesting words to keep it fast paced, but it’s also packed with creative details.

I had to admit that I haven’t given computerized card games a fair shake in the past, especially if they take the form of titles the likes of Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic: The Gathering. Such things just get too complicated to keep track of. As such I was initially hesitant to even give Spectromancer a try, since that’s exactly what it is.
I’m glad I changed my mind. Aside from a few little irksome flaws, this is a really fun game.
