Stone Age Kings is a browser strategy created by German studio Gorilla Gaming. It is also the company’s first project for personal computers. So far, Germany has focused on mobile devices, i.e. iPads and iPhones, on which they have created a handbook called Gorilla Jump.
In the game we move to the ancient times of the Stone Age. We play the role of a young leader who, after the death of his father, has to take over government in one of the villages. As a commander, we strive to expand our centre, enlarge its population, collect raw materials and create an army and conquer other settlements.
The basics of Stone Age Kings are similar to classic strategy games. Initially, therefore, we must take care to expand the basic infrastructure (such as quarries and carpenters) to ensure the flow of raw materials, and then focus, among other things, on the expansion of the army and the improvement of technology. The key element is the collection of raw materials (in total there are five: wood, stone, food, fur, bronze) – the more developed solutions we introduce, the faster we will collect them. Just like in many similar browser games, the authors decided on a micropayment system. For real cash we can therefore buy obsidian, a special raw material that allows us to gain an advantage over ordinary players, among other things through the ability to build buildings faster.
In Stone Age Kings there are also three trees of sediment development. Depending on the strategy adopted, we can allocate special talent points to a military, economic or mystical branch. In this way, for example, we can increase the resistance of our units or increase the rate of collection of raw materials. In addition to the view of the village itself, you can move to the world map, where you can see other settlements and caves at any time. During the game we can both form alliances with other players and conduct regular wars with them. On the map there are also settlements controlled by artificial intelligence.
The title is characterized by an eye-pleasing, slightly caricatured graphic design. This can be seen both on the home screen and in the game itself. Graphic designers devoted a lot of time to refining such details as the drawn silhouettes of cavemen who often appear on the screen.
Stone Age Kings is a constantly evolving game around which a growing community of players is gathering. The authors have prepared for them, among other things, chat rooms and the possibility of creating clans.
