Stronghold Kingdoms is the MMO successor to the Stronghold castle building series, most famous for the original Stronghold (2001) and Stronghold: Crusader (2002). Unlike the original and Crusader, Kingdoms allows players to relive the Middle Ages in the world’s first castle MMO. A cross-platform strategy game, Kingdoms invites mobile and desktop players to battle together online by thrusting the Middle Ages and famous Stronghold characters into a persistent MMO world. Besiege the castle that’s never been taken, overthrow ruthless tyrants, bankroll your faction’s war effort, pillage your neighbour’s resources, peacefully raise cattle or do it all!

Only by engaging enemy troops, taking back villages from The Wolf and winning votes in the political arena can players hope to succeed. Stronghold Kingdoms is set in a fast-paced, challenging game world designed for large numbers of players working together in pursuit of a common goal.

We designed Stronghold Kingdoms to be the first fully fledged PvP (player versus player) strategy MMO RTS for mobile devices. As a developer we’re best known for the core Stronghold series, which sees you besiege friends and war against AI opponents like The Wolf. With Kingdoms we’re taking Stronghold online, giving players an immersive medieval game world populated by real players, war and political strife. Firefly is a small independent developer with a lot of respect for our players, so we’d love to hear your thoughts on Kingdoms! Please try the game out for yourself (it’s free to play) and send us a message using one of the community links above.

Thanks for playing from everyone at Firefly Studios!

Very fun, small issue


This game is very fun. I started playing on PC a little while ago, and I've got to say, I'm extremely happy it is on mobile now. This is a game where you can check up a few times a day once you get going and get everything set up. The concepts of attacking and defending are great, and the community is even greater. The only issue I personally have seen so far is what it does to my phone battery. It drains it like 10-15 percent instantly, then it continues to go down fast from there. It kind of prevents me from playing while I'm out due to needing to conserve battery. But other than this, this game is one I will be playing for a very long time.

Not ready for iOS


There is fun to be had, and it’s been interesting learning. But this app is plagued with bugs. Fresh update yesterday, with improved UI’s and market info, but for all I have spoken with, actually made it worse as now not allowing transfers of anything except wood as a bug. Also have read and can confirm that ransacking not available on some devices including iOS... Mail has been hosed up as long as I’ve been playing, and if switching between villages, app needs you to open certain aspects of village or it still recognizes previously selected village values. What’s worse, is that all the links for help or support send you to the pc game site or wiki, which while similar has many differences. Launched too early IMO, poor performance.

Not for mobile!


This app could have been so much better. The pc version of SHK is a wonderful game, I have been playing for many years. To hear that a mobile version was coming out was exciting, but after years of working on this app it came out poorly. It is very complicated and hard to access. I understand that the app is new and has some bugs to be worked out but the design is bad as well. It is hard to do most of the need features to play shk. If you haven't played shk on the computer or aren't going to, don't download. This is not a game to only be played on the phone.
