In Little King's Story you start as a boy who becomes King of the Alpoko kingdom by finding a magical crown. At first few adults follow you, but thanks to the power of the crown, with time you will get more followers, and expand your kingdom until you unify the entire world.
The game combines elements from life-simulation, RTS and RPG in the game play. You control the Little King, and you can order your subjects to follow you an a similar way to the game Pikmin, sending them to build, destroy or combat things in a similar way. Your subjects start as carefree adults that do nothing, but as the game progresses you can buy buildings where you can train them in various job classes that you will need to fight the game bosses or to pass the various puzzles.
