** 2016 App Store Game of the Year Runner-Up **
Sit on the throne as a benevolent (or malevolent) medieval monarch of the modern age and swipe your royal fingers either left or right to impose your will upon the kingdom. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and family’s dynasty at risk!
Each year of your reign brings another important – seemingly random – request from your unpredictable kingdom as you strive for balance between the church, the people, the army, and the treasury. Prudent decisions and careful planning make for a long reign but unforeseen motivations, surprise events, and poor luck can take down even the most entrenched monarch. Extend your reign as long as possible, forge alliances, make enemies, and find new ways to die as your dynasty marches along through the ages. Some events will span on centuries, with an intrigue involving burning witches, scientific enlightenment, wicked politics and, maybe, the Devil himself.
*iPhone 5 / iPod Touch 6 / iPad mini 2 / iPad Air or later recommended.

The crusade is less unforgiving.
Better than I thought it would be
I read about the game at so many websites and with it being on sale during Christmas, I decided to give it a shot. I'm glad I did. The premise is simple, but it keeps you coming back for more. Trying to see how long you can rule as king before the church, people, army, or treasury become too weak or too strong. Trying to keep everything level without getting too low or high is a challenge. Sometimes the game can be repetitive, but there's enough thrown in to make it different each time.
Fun and additive
I had a really good time playing this game. Had a hard time putting it down. Seems simple enough, but there is some thinking involved. Would recommend.
First half is great! End Game is awfully done.
After reading through the reviews, I agree with both the good and bad reviews -- the good reviews come from people who appreciate the decision making and interesting scenarios -- but these reviewers clearly never got to the end. The 'Good' or 'Real' ending is close to impossible to figure out without looking online, and because of that I can't say the game is worth more than 3 stars. But before you realize how stupid it is to get the real ending, it's a blast! Here's hoping that a sequel sticks the landing better!
