Critic Reviews for Kingsway

Your first completion is a lot of fun, and should only take a couple hours. After that, you can chase down the multitude of other endings and unlocks

Like all successful pieces of nostalgia, Kingsway knows the adventure on the screen is less important than the adventure in your mind. Kingsway took me far down those winding paths, deeper and deeper with each hesitant chitter of nonexistent hardware.

Kingsway goes beyond being just a throwback to the past, and proves itself an entertaining game in its own right.

Borrowing from roguelikes, your character has one life, and the game is mostly about preserving yourself and leveling efficiently so that you can defeat the appropriate bosses so that you can win the game. This was not something that I found particularly interesting in itself, but I tend to not be super excited about games that are fundamentally concerned about making numbers go up. Lots of people are, and if you're one of them, you should try out Kingsway immediately.

A fun procedurally generated rpg adventure with a punishing difficulty that will require multiple playthroughs.

Kingsway is ingenious, simply put. It has a brilliant attention to detail that is well-thought out. I implore you to play Kingsway to see it for yourself. It doesn’t entirely rely on its nostalgia for it to work. There’s a bit of repetition in its encounters and quests, but that’s really a small issue in what’s a largely enjoyable and highly replayable game. You’ve not played anything like Kingsway before, and it is a game demanding a place on your hard drive that will stay for the foreseeable future.

Filled with Nostalgia, Kingsway is a roguelike without the good parts. It relies far too much on its user interface to create tension instead of developing actual variety on its enemy encounters and combat systems.

Kingsway has a great interface, but it has a lackluster gameplay. I want the gameplay to be better than it was because it has a nostalgic feeling for me, but it doesn’t hook the player like it could.
