This is a freemium game review, in which we give our impressions immediately after booting a game up, again after three days, and finally after seven days. That's what the strange sub-headings are all about.
Last year I got all excited about the potential release on Vita of a game called Samurai & Dragons. The game still hasn't come to Europe, but its iOS counterpart Kingdom Conquest certainly has.
I didn't put much time into it in the end, but I've been given another chance to experience its brand of gameplay this week as I review its sequel.
For the next seven days I'll be conquering dominions as I put the game through its paces. Is the action thrilling? How deep is the strategy? And, more importantly, will there be both samurai AND dragons? Let's find out.
Menus could be snappier and simpler, and there are too many systems at play to hook casual players, but those that do get the Kingdom Conquest bug will find a compelling multi-genre blend with high production values
