Product Description

From the Manufacturer

    Loot, level and build with fast paced RPG combat and strategic base building!

    Your goal is to lead a handful of peasants to establish a small haven in the wild backcountry of a fantasy kingdom. Bring a diverse cast of followers to your settlement on the edge of the world and then carefully select members of your village to put down their ploughs, leave their comfortable homes, and take whatever weapon they may have at hand to join you on expeditions of exploration and conquest in the surrounding lands. There you'll encounter the characters and creatures of myth and folklore, and find much needed resources to expand your village whether it be iron to make weapons or a mystic tome to entice a great mage to join you. Should your forays meet with success, fame, fortune and prosperity await. But you must take care, for even the loss of a lowly farmer can spell disaster when harvest time comes.

    Can you build a vibrant settlement, lead your people to prosperity, and tame the wild Hinterland?

    • Party-based RPG Action - A variety of characters, weapons, and strategies are at your disposal
    • Town Building - Choose which of a huge cast of characters will settle in your town and arm them for defense, or give them tools for production.
    • Character Development - Develop lowly farmers in to great warriors and customize your character with a variety of specializations to help adventure or improve life in your village.
    • Random fantasy world - Each game of Hinterland takes place in a new location for maximum replay with different resources, items and sets of enemies and challenges from orc war camps, dark elf raiding parties, goblin infested mines, ruined cities filled with undead, and more.
    • Customizable Gameplay - From a hardcore game to a world without raiders you make the choice about the type of game you want to play.

If you dont believe in that formula you will not like this game.
Basically this game has these different 'pioneer?' types to chose from and they all have diff attributes
(some start with better gear, some make more money passively, some have reduced building costs, etc)

You are given a cabin as your base. Around the base has 12 lots. You then have to recruit people to make the town grow (farmers, hunters, blksmiths, fletchers, etc). Once you get some recruits you have to then set out to conquer the wilds around your town to aquire resource that will help your town develop (water, iron, hunting grounds, herb fields, etc). Here's the catch:

You'll need help settling the wilds, so you'll need to recruit that farmer or blksmith or fletcher to help you fight. So you have to balance between town development and settling new lands.

The game will throw random groups of mobs to raid your town, whether you're there to defend or not. You can either run back with your settling group or equip tour townspeople to defend the town (this usually ends up in your returning to a lot of dead townspeople).

While conquering the lands, the game acts like Diablo with random, better loot dropping the harder the lands you've conquored.
While in town, you have to manage your money to recruit more people, upgrade your buildings and supply the king with his requests or suffer a fame hit.

I've played and replyed this game many many more times than most of my "AAA" titles. Replay is very very high and no two games are ever the same.

I liked this game. It felt a bit like playing a family board game, in that it was fun while it lasted, but it didn't last long.

There's no story. No campaign. In a nutshell, it's just a "game" that you can play as much as you want; the dynamics never change, and every game is finite. You CAN change your character race and class (and subsequently, your armies, buildings, etc) and the difficulty level, but beyond that, once you've grasped the mechanism behind the game, you're set.

Don't get me wrong, I really, really liked the game's mechanics; the villagers think for themselves (kind of like Majesty), and it is actually a good mix of strategy and rpg. If they'd had a campaign, it would have been absolutely fabulous. Unfortunately, as it stands, this game is just a glorified type of solitaire.

First off, I enjoyed this game. However, it is an $8 game.. so don't expect that you are getting a contender for game of the year or anything like that.

What it is:
A top view fantasy/RPG/adventure game where you control a hero who is building a town for a king. You have to choose from visiting people to settle the town (such a soldiers, inn keepers, or farmers) all of who can be ordered to join you on your adventures. You and your rag tag party of up to 3 settlers must defend the settlement from monster raids, and defeat areas of monsters on the map thus "expanding" the empire. Characters can advance in levels and equip weapons, armor, and misc items that are found while killing monsters, in chests, or are made by other towns people (such as the weaponsmith).

What I liked:
-the music
-the upgradeable buildings and professions of towns people
-the experience/level building
-being able to upgrade towns people and hero with loot and items

What I didn't like:
-the controls (though I did get used to them after a while)
-the lack of story

I liked the game. It kept me busy for a few hours each night for about 2-3 evenings. Not much replay value, since the game plays pretty much the same each time (dispite auto generated maps), but for $8 how much replay are your expecting? Overall, I got my $8 worth... and then some.

For a game just under $9, it's what you would expect. The graphics were decent, and the game flowed smoothly. The music was nice. Some of the controls were a bit difficult, and even though every land's terrain is randomized, I didn't feel it had much replay value. As a game progressed, it seemed to lose its challenge. Not much originality went into it, but it was fun for a few hours. If it was any more expensive, I'd give it more around 2 stars. Cheaper would make it a four.

At $8.49 it's definitely worth the price.

Although you can be anything from a orc shaman to a human entrepreneur to an elf bowman, the replay is relatively low because you still fight very similar enemies, the king has the same tasks and the game ends on the same note.

If you like strategy, rpg, economic games you will like it. It is unlikely you will play through it more than once in my opinion but you get a solid 20 hours out of it and it is fun.

I would describe it as a pre- world of warcraft meets diablo 2. Average to low graphics and options but does have some surprisingly complex elements.

I wouldn't buy it for $15 bucks but for under 9 it's worth it.

Not going to say much here... when you play this game, you think your playing 1998 Ultima on a P100.

This game is so far behind what a game published in 2010 should be, it's pathetic.

I rated it "okay" because the game play is just that - okay. I can't say I don't like it, and I can't say I like it.

This game is about as deep as a bird bath. You have a town... in which you build buildings for visitors... and run around killing poorly animated 2d paper doll orcs and spiders.

I've seen browser based facebook games that were richer than this.

Save your time and money and look elsewhere.
