Royal Revolt! is a very bright and colorful real-time strategy which can be compared with the game of the genre of Tower Defense, but the events are unfolding in reverse order. You have to lead an army that should conquer towers, but no one is going to make you an aggressor, because you will have to win back what was taken from you by traitors.
Shortly speaking, it so happened that a king of one state went to war with his army, and his deputies decided at that time to make a revolt in the country and seize the throne. Returning home after the victory over the enemy outside, the king was faced with closed gates of the kingdom and with the internal enemy. Now you have to crush the rebels and traitors at all costs to reclaim the royal throne and respect. The game has great graphics made in a cartoon style, and a wonderful sound which only makes stronger the desire to go into another battle with the traitors.
GameplayThe gameplay develops in the same order which usually occurs in all games of the genre of RTS. At the beginning of each level, the King is ready for a battle, but to go into a battle without support would be a suicide, so first you need to gather a small troop. To do this, you need to click on the icon with a shield and sword several times in the lower left corner of the screen. At that, the indicator located next, will empty and start to fill again. As soon as the in-game currency is replenished, you will have the opportunity to convene new fighters, and it can be done even during the very fight.
Actually, you can first create a large troop and only then advance to fight, but in this case there is a risk that the enemy will come very close to your camp and you will lose some of the fighters in the vain battle trying to ease the onslaught of traitors and move them back to the gate of the tower which you are going to conquer. Naturally, during the battle your soldiers will take damage and even die, but from the second level you will have magic that you can use to restore the health of the injured.
ResumeTo do this, just approach a victim as close as possible and press the button with heart in the lower right corner of the screen. After this action, the button will be disabled but only for a while. Wait until the button gets filled with bright color, and you can use it again. With each new level, you will find an encounter with even more mighty army of the traitor, so you will have to think about tactics and strategy of warfare, otherwise the kingdom will remain in the hands of the invaders.
