Merchant Kingdom is a real world location based strategy game. So go out and fire up Merchant Kingdom when you move around in real life. Try and put a settlement on all the places that you visit regularly such as your home, your work place, train stations, the supermarket or your favorite bar!
This app works best on an iPhone with 3G access allowing you to roam and settle different locations. An iPod connected to WiFi will restrict the growth of your Kingdom.
EXPAND YOUR EMPIRE
Merchant Kingdom starts you off as a simple merchant. Found your first settlements to produce basic goods in places you visit often, and then begin your rise to power. Your iPhone is the caravan you can use to buy commodities from traders, take them with you when you move around in real life, and sell at a profit.
DIPLOMACY OR TYRANNY
As your trading empire expands, you desire more than just wealth – it’s power you are longing for. When the king awards you a knighthood, you can build a castle, recruit an army and demand allegiance from other players! Alternatively, you can build your kingdom on the cultural influence of your castle and expand it by organising events."
VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE
Claim locations you visit often and build settlements that produce the commodities you want to trade in. Upgrade your settlements whenever you can and choose from over 50 different buildings each with their own special abilities. Expand your caravan, as you get richer. Buy donkeys, settlers, horses, covered wagons, spies, thieves or one of the other units.
SO MUCH TO DO, SO MUCH TO SEE
Explore the world and discover over 40 different kinds of land types, from thick jungles, to deserts, to extinct volcanoes. On your travels, find rare commodities on your trips, then bring them home and sell them for a profit. Earn achievements in one of the four guilds: the Traders Guild, the Explorers Guild, the Manufacturers Guild or the Thieves Guild and cement your reputation in the virtual land.
What's New in Version 1.5.1
Good Idea but flawed
I got this game and must say I am impressed. It is a very original idea and has potential to be great. The issue I have with it is that the game functions by you setting up settlements at areas that you visit in real life, using gps and a fantasy map overlay on a google map section. Because most places you regularly visit are indoors you aren't certain of the same map reading every time, this means that currently I have 4 settlements that I can't access unless I go outside to the exact spot that I set up my settlement.... Not a huge issue... Unless it's raining! Or your at work!
This game is dying
No 'demands' in any of my markets since March; no merchants buying goods I've put up for sale; and no income from any of my settlements. Either this game has some major issues or the developers are allowing it to wither on the vine...
Still fun to play when travelling but the only way to add funds now is by paying tribute. Sad, as this game has a lot of potential. Glad I haven't spent any (real) money on it, though, or I'd be annoyed.
Need more players
Great game! Addictive but not too time consuming. Only problem is the low number of players. The more there are, the better the game will be. Needs a big marketing plug.
