Fantastic! Like a 2D, pixel-art Team Fortress 2!
I've been playing this game since pre-build 80 (many months now) and have yet to get tired of it. I was really into Terraria at the time, but King Arthur's Gold came along and drank its milkshake!
The game has great tension, and many laugh-out-loud moments as someone manages to destroy that last block of an enemy castle to cause it to fall to the ground. The devs are really responsive and creative guys. Updates have been regular, and I'm confident that they have the chops to deliver on the what they plan. I've already gotten 100s of hours of play in on what they're calling an alpha. Can't wait to see what the future holds!
Fantastic fun, even in this early stage in its development. It's pretty balanced, fairly intuitive, and surprisingly deep. Each of the classes feels unique and useful in a different aspect of the game. King Arthur's Gold rewards skill and speed, as well as planning and strategy, which in my opinion opens it up to a wider audience. All in all, a great multiplayer experience. I'm definitely looking forward to the future of this game.
I highly recommend picking up a purchased copy and supporting the developers in their excellent project!
I have been playing this game for quite a while, and I really do enjoy it's content.
It's a very orignal take on a medievel fighting style, which make way for much creativity, skill and fun.
It's one of those games where it's easy to learn, hard to master kind of plays which really make you work more on skill than on heavy power.
Of course, there are still some parts of the game that are overpowered and need to be rebalanced, but this never ment to be a one VS all type of game. It's a team game and you make up for what your teammates lack.
By scrolling through the different classes, you need to see what the situation gives you and how the other players on the field behave.
Learn each class's powers and weaknesses and master the field by teamplay.
A very enjoyable game, with a very strong and enjoyable community.
Playing with friends or alone, both are very fun, as it's always a new expierence when diving into the game.
I would recommend a buy.
