King Arthur’s Gold is an absolute must-have for today’s generation of team-orientated combat fans, who desire a taste of something a little different than the usual First Person Shooter fare. All around, it deserves high marks.

But I digress, for those bugs do not take away from my overall impression of King Arthur’s Gold, which is a great multiplayer game that stands out from the crowd by being something that embraces lunacy and remains grounded with simple mechanics that allow for a variety of strategies. In fact, it might well be the best multiplayer game of 2013. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a boat to launch and a tower that needs collapsing.

These days, it seems that games are becoming more and more streamlined to fit into a particular genre. Developers tend to play it safer than they have previously, using caution to simply release games that have been done countless times before. King Arthur’s Gold is no such title. This 2D multiplayer war game combines all the best bits of your favorites.

Au final, KAG est un de ces jeux indépendants dont on a du mal à décrocher, tellement le fun qui s'en dégage est important. Le jeu est actuellement toujours en phase d'alpha, mais les mises à jour sont régulières (plusieurs fois par semaine), tant pour corriger des bugs que pour ajouter du contenu. Il dispose d'une version gratuite dont le contenu est décrit plus haut, tandis que la version payante se base sur le modèle Minecraftien : actuellement à 9,99 $, le prix augmentera avec le contenu ajouté. Une communauté active, des développeurs à l'écoute, du fun en barres, King Arthur's Gold a de beaux jours devant lui.

KAG manages to hit that sweet spot between simple to learn but deep (and addicting) enough that you will want to play the game over and over again.

Il carattere fresco ed innovativo di King Arthur's Gold, più che nelle singole meccaniche, spicca nella perfetta alchimia con cui le componenti del suo ricco gameplay vengono amalgamate per creare un'esperienza nuova e coinvolgente. La formula creata dai Transhuman Design, nella sua apparente semplicità, rappresenta un esempio ammirevole di game design completamente votato ad un multiplayer profondo e divertente. La direzione artistica priva d'una forte impronta stilistica ed un'offerta single player del tutto inconsistente non ci impediscono di consigliare King Arthur's Gold a tutti coloro che desiderano impegnarsi in complesse sessioni online nelle quali a pesare non sia l'ammontare delle uccisioni quanto la capacità d'accordare la propria azione a quella della squadra, dando vita a strategie corali che, attraverso una sinergica coordinazione di tutte le classi, affermino il sicuro trionfo d'uno schieramento.

Wer Lust auf ein kurzweiliges Mittelaltergemetzel hat, sollte sich nicht vom sperrigen Einstieg abschrecken lassen. Nach ein paar Gewöhnungsrunden versteht man immer besser, welche Möglichkeiten in den Online-Schlachten von King Arthur’s Gold stecken. Das Zusammenspiel aus Kämpfen und Festungsbau sowie die präzise Steuerung sorgen für unterhaltsame Kämpfe. Visuell oder im Einzelspielerpart kann das Spiel aber nicht mit dem stilsicher designten BattleblockTheater konkurrieren.

In the original version of that game (before it was soundly Jagexed), I tunnelled from one end of the map to the other, clinking away as gingerly as the pickaxe’s sound effect would allow. It reminded me of a part of a book called Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks, where soldiers of the trenches dig tunnels towards enemy lines during WWI, all the while worriedly listening for the scratching sounds of the Germans, who were doing the exact same in the other direction. It might sound stupid that daft, brightly-coloured videogames can provoke a memory associated with such grumpy, serious-faced literature but KAG, in its finer moments, did precisely that. And it was funny about it too. For $10 (about seven quid for UK folk) it’s impossible not to recommend.
