Story
Once upon a time there was a young boy named Corobo. He was a shy, withdrawn boy with few friends. One day while wandering the forest near his village he came across a crown infused with a mysterious power; the power to charm any person and make them follow any order. No sooner has Corobo placed the crown upon his head than an adventurer, the bull-knight Howzer, appears. Howzer informs Corobo that he is now the king of his town and that it is his responsibility to become the best king ever. With that Corobo returns to his village and with the assistance of Howzer and two other newly discovered royal advisors, begins his efforts to turn his sleepy little hamlet into the best kingdom ever.

Gameplay
A blend of RPG, simulation and light Real Time Strategy gameplay, the action in Little King's Story is all about improving your skill level and those of your followers as a means of gaining wealth and territory, which will in turn benefit the overall health of your subjects and your status as king. As players enter their humble town after finding their crown, they are assisted by their advisors, especially Howzer, in taking on missions in the immediate area of town. With the success of each, as well as activities like farming and natural resources development, they will gain wealth in the form of in-game currency called 'Bol.' Once an essential infrastructure has been established in town a suggestion box is set up through which in-game characters can make quest suggestions to supplement those of your advisors. During quests players in the role of young King Corobo can control multiple subjects of his kingdom who follow and serve based on your kingly status. These subjects have different professions which come in handy in specific as well as general quest scenarios and should be chosen wisely. Additional training facilities can be constructed to retrain existing subjects as well as those that are added to your kingdom as it prospers and eventually needs to expand into surrounding territories.

The world of Little King's Story is expansive and set on many levels. Although each level contains multiple possible boss battles, progression through the game levels always requires the defeat of a substantial boss. Battles become more intense as you set out to conquer the lands that surround your kingdom, although these are never too overbearing due to the game's easy to alter difficulty settings. As these campaigns against neighboring kingdoms proceed you are kept aware of the health and happiness of your subjects at home and that of your troops via an information bar at the top left, as well as a ticker scrolling across the screen. Balance their needs with the needs of an expanding kingdom and you may indeed become the best king ever.

Key Features

  • High Production Values - An original game built from the ground up for the Wii by a seasoned development team.
  • Accessible Controls - Give commands and control your townspeople to a wide variety of tasks with ease.
  • People Power - Have your townspeople dig for treasures, build new buildings, and break obstacles to access new areas – all in the name of bettering your kingdom.
  • Distinct and Lively Villagers - Each NPC (Non-Playable Character) in your village is unique with individual likes, dislikes, and personal memories which evolve based on their daily experiences.
  • Multiple Sub-quests - Any good king puts the welfare of his subjects before himself, so help your villagers by accepting some of their requests.
  • Expand Your Kingdom - Unite the surrounding rival kingdoms under your flag to become the best king in the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Little King is wee bit of a Tyrant July 23, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Little King's Story is a cutesy Real Time Strategy (RTS), Role-Playing (RPG), simulation, and action title that definitely stands out from the pack. Aside from some strange design decisions and a few graphical flaws, this is a shining example of an original idea that I hope to see grow into its own franchise. Fans of the Harvest Moon/Rune Factory series as well as fans of Overlord and Pikmin will probably immediately recognize the influences in Little King's Story.

PROS:
+++ Original gameplay that blends a variety of genres
+++ Creative and colorful graphical design
+++ Clever and interesting enemies, bosses, characters, and townsfolk bring the game to life.

CONS:
--- This game should have used pointer controls similar to Pikmin New Play Control.
--- The blur filter on the graphics is extremely over-used
--- The game gets off to a pretty slow start for the first hour

GAMEPLAY: Very, very awesome. Role-playing, city building (but not planning), exploration, lite resource management, and total subjegation of your loyal subjects. It's a good package. Basically, you play the role of a young child who gets whisked away to a magical world where he becomes King. Specifically a King with a bent towards world domination. Despite the cutesy presentation, the Little King is actually a bit of a tyrant and dictator. There is definitely no democracy to be found. I certainly wouldn't want to live in this country that I'm running, but I'm having fun running it. You bend the citizens to your will, ordering them to do whatever you wish, be it farming, digging holes, or even charging to their untimely doom while battling a cow.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King may be little, but . . . . August 3, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game itself certainly isn't. Little King's Story looks like it might just be some cutesy childs game, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. This is a reasonably complex game of strategy that includes village development, army building, conquering territory, etc. It's hard to resist the addictive quality of the Little King and his loyal followers who will happily give up their lives for you.

Story: You play the role of a young, lonely boy. One day he chases some rats that infiltrate his room, and in the process of chasing them into the forest he comes across a magnificent crown. This royal head piece causes the people of a nearby village to see him as their rightful king, and they obey you without question. Howser, the Bull Knight, gets you headed in the right direction to establishing your kingdom and world domination. You also find that the rats you chased live in you new "castle" which looks more like a hut.

Gameplay: Similar to Pikmin or Overlord: Dark Legend, you have a group of units (your villagers) following you that you give commands to (you use the "A" button to send them to a given task rather than use the pointer like in Overlord: Dark Legend.) They can attack, build bridges, dig holes (in designated spots), etc. Your village has a certain population size as well as a maximum troop size that can follow you, so it's important to not let your villagers die needlessly in battle. You can give your Carefree Villagers jobs such as grunt soldiers and farmers that will grant them special skills to serve their liege all the better. As you conquer new areas, your village expands and new units become available.

5.0 out of 5 stars OH Baby! It's About Time. July 23, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're like me, you have probably been waiting about two years for Project O (Little King Story) to be released. Let's just say, the wait was worth it. The story is heart warming and hilarious, the style is brilliant, and the world is huge and uhhh... adorable. Two major gripes I have with the game are the combat system & the camera. Combat could not be more clunky unfortunately. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't been able to sort through my citizens to find the soldiers/farmers to defeat an enemy. This makes the player have to distract the unnecessary citizens so one can use the ones further down in the trail following the king. Also, the camera is at an odd distance, and is often easy to forget where you are, as it is far to zoomed in. Neither are deal breakers though, the game is superb. One of the best features is the humor. Yesterday, I got a challenged from the Onii King. Reading, "Aljerko, You suck, we are the best. Love- The Onii King" Of course the town is outraged, "WAAAAARRRR", they scream. The Job system is great and sitting on your throne is quite satisfying. Do NOT pass up this gem. This will be better that Wii Sports Resort.

Graphics: 8/10

Gameplay: 8/10

Extra Credit: +2

Overall: 27.5/30 (Big Recommendation :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Party?! July 27, 2009
By Orion
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is awesome. I've been playing nonstop since I got it (Release Date Shipping-thanks, Amazon!) and am still finding more and more things to enjoy. RPG and RTS fans will instantly feel right at home.

My one complaint is that you don't actually use the remote to "point" at the location where you want to send your troops, instead you have an arrow showing where they will be thrown. This is annoying in some of the harder boss battles, but not bad enough to ruin the fun.

All in all, I feel that this was a great purchase and RPG/RTS fans will not be dissapointed.
