A World of Keflings
by Harry Slater 26/3/2013
Product: A World of Keflings
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Format: Windows 8
Genre: Casual, Simulation, Strategy
Windows 8- and RT-powered devices boast a handful of features that should make them perfect gaming devices. You can sign into your Xbox Live game profile and earn achievements, for example, and play certain games as your Xbox Avatar.
These features come to the fore in A World of Keflings, and create an atmosphere of console level polish. It might be an illusion, and an illusion all too often broken by juddering framerates and fidgety controls, but the end result is still an entertaining casual strategy game.
Kefling it up
If you've not played a Keflings game before, the aim is grand but simple. You're a giant - if you've got an Xbox Live account you're a giant styled after your Avatar - who's dropped into a world populated by plucky little blighters called Keflings.
There's a lot to like about A World of Keflings. And although this big and bright game has its troubles, they're not large enough to really spoil the experience
