Majesty 2: Pocket Kingdom for Nintendo DS is a real-time strategy game, which makes an uncommitting reference to a franchise initiated in 2000 by Cyberlore Studios (Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim). Majesty 2: Pocket Kingdom was created by KranX Productions - a developer popular mainly for Hammerfight, which is an independent PC game.

Plot

The campaign takes the player to the mythical Ardania, where they assume the role of the head of one of the towns. Unfortunately, the player's territories get attacked by monsters from a nearby forest - the player has to defeat them, build up the economic infrastructure back, and later on, take over the entire kingdom.

Mechanics

What is original about the game, the player does not have direct control over their subordinates - instead, one's characters do as they please. The player can influence the units' behaviours in different ways - for example, one can encourage them with a high prize for completing the given objective. In such a manner, the player can force every brave knight to set out for the world, hunt after monsters, and conquer new lands. All of this is contained within twelve, diverse missions.

Commanding one's units is not the only way to influence the fate of the kingdom, as apart from that, the player has powerful magic at their disposal. Particular spells are cast using the stylus pen and the console's touchscreen. Obviously, the game features elements characteristic of the series, such as collecting taxes, or an ability to construct different buildings, such as taverns.

Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim for PC / Windows is a long-awaited sequel to an innovative strategy game created by Cyberlore Studios in 2000. However, Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim was developed by a completely different team - a Russian studio Ino-Co (subordinate to the 1C company), which is popular mainly for Fantasy Wars - a very well-rated game whose formula is similar to the legendary Heroes of Might & Magic series.

Plot

The player is taken to a magical world filled with castles, dragons, knights, skeletons and other creatures known from fantasy stories. The player takes on the role of the main leader of Ardania, and their goals are to ensure the kingdom's development and safety of its subjects. As a result, the player has to build up the infrastructure, gather resources, recruit characters and fighters, as well as defend the country against dangerous creatures - those are only waiting for the player's mistake and looking forward to an opportunity to attack the player's territories. The player has brave and loyal heroes under their command, though sometimes they are hardly bearable, as they have free will and act in accordance with their own moral codes. Contrary to ordinary strategy games, the player does not have direct influence on their actions - one only sets their objectives and prizes for completing them, and afterwards the subordinates execute the orders on their own. One needs to remember though, that the characters' priorities sometimes differ to those of the player - the characters have their own plans and viewpoints on what is better for the kingdom and which task should be completed first.

Mechanics

Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim for PC / Windows offers a variety of options for developing particular units. The characters that fight for the player gain new, gradually more powerful skills as they win subsequent encounters. One can choose from representatives of over 10 character classes typical of fantasy games - above all, there is the noble warrior, the skilled mage, or the savage barbarian. Each character has a different appearance, physique, equipment, as well as certain properties unique for them. Despite the changes introduced since the original game, one aspect remains the same, which is the humor. Majesty 2 continues the tradition of shocking the player and making them laugh.

Game modes

The single-player campaign consists of 16 missions falling into four large chapters; completing the campaign does not have to mark the end of the experience, as the game also offers a few smaller scenarios and has a competition-based, multiplayer component, which places the player against up to three others, either locally or via the Internet (new, innovative multiplayer modes were included). Additionally, after each multiplayer encounter, the player's performance gets evaluated and assigned a place within an online ranking.

Technical aspects

Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim for PC / Windows brings major improvements also in terms of the graphics. The virtual world is presented in three dimensions; as for the characters and buildings, they make quite a decent impression, since every detail was taken into account by the creators.
