Kingdom Two Crowns feels more like an extensive update than a new entry to the series, but the base game is still so immensely enjoyable that it doesn't really matter. This is the perfect starting point for new players, and those who are returning might still be surprised by some of the secrets to be found.

Behind pixel optics, 2D perspective and minimalistic controls hides an amazingly complex strategy game.

Kingdom Two Crowns is a little jewel. A pleasure in terms of exploration, survival and management that can be fully played in cooperation. The game has a splendid artistic direction and an extraordinary sound atmosphere. Almost dreamlike. Too bad the game looks more like a New Lands DLC than a real new episode.

Kingdom Two Crowns offers a hell of a view, but you may find its brand of light strategy too sedate if you're not one to ‘smell the roses'. Give it a chance, though, and it really grows on you. Disappointing framerate aside, it's a great introduction to the series, and valuable split-screen co-op adds a fresh, more relaxing dimension to its tower defence. If you bounced off New Lands, this won't win you over, but if the last game piqued your interest but passed you by, Two Crowns is a much easier recommendation.

A surprising twist on the strategy and resource management genre, Kingdom Two Crowns offers players a mostly serene experience with gorgeous art and limited direction that may frustrate players not willing to uncover its secrets.

The visuals, music and game design of Kingdom Two Crowns should be commended, and it is refreshing to be light on tutorial and direction. It does, however, walk the treacherous line between boring and addictive. It is a slow-paced strategy game with plenty on offer, but it all comes down to how you interact with the environment how much you feel incentivised to engage with it. Patience and a relaxed state of mind are almost essential to play the game.

Dead Lands does a great job combining these two franchises. At the core, this is still Kingdom Two Crowns, but the additions improve upon the base game and bring an update that both Kingdom and Bloodstained fans can be happy with.

Kingdom Two Crowns brings deceptively complex strategy and empire building to the Switch, in as well a presented package as you can find. While some obtuse and unclear mechanics may turn some players off, others will no doubt welcome the challenge, and embrace this new world which they ought to conquer. Punctuated by stunning visuals, and rewarding gameplay and discovery, Kingdom Two Crowns offers some of the finest strategy gameplay available on the Switch.

While at times the difficulty can seem very intense, and all seems lost, Kingdom Two Crowns is designed so you can rebuild your empire after the toughest of invasions or the coldest of winters - and all achieved by the simplest of decrees: to build, expand, and defend.

It may not be for everyone, but if you’re thinking you might like it, you’re probably right, so long as you don’t mind the learning curve. Even with its slow pace, its charming presentation and looming challenge will pull you back for more.

It may be a simple and repetitive game but Kingdom Two Crowns is oddly compelling and the new Dead Lands update offers even more content to sink your teeth into. In the end, it's a solid game to wind down with whenever you want to escape.

There is something special about a game that has been designed and developed by a small group of individuals. No matter the industry, we all know that working as part of a team can come with its challenges, but ultimately, the more team members there are, the greater the pool of resources and potential a project can have.

Kingdom Two Crowns continues to repeat the same formule of the previous games to such an extent that it is difficult to distinguish them. With some new additions such as a campaign mode and the ability to play in multiplayer mode, fans of the saga will find plenty of reasons to justify their purchase, and other players will instead find a game with rarely seen gameplay that can ease their entry into the management genre.

While not invalidating the previous title, the developers at Noio have created a sequel that shines as an independent title on the Switch, even during the holiday scene.

Its a fun game with what I believe to be design flaws and a couple of nasty bugs. It's art style looks nice, but won't appeal to everyone. The game is challenging and the co-op works well. It is a meaty game with a decent amount of content

Kingdom Two Crowns feels more like an update of previous Kingdom games than an entirely new sequel but that doesn't make the game any less enjoyable to play.
