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!

Good addition

If you are like me and play this on a desktop, you will love being able to check your village, mail, reports, and just about anything else from your phone. One of the best ways to get powerful is constant activity, and this allows you to do so.

Clunky ui and bad tooltips


The ui is overall clunky and nothing like the desktop and is pretty constrained on what you can do. Certain things are in seemingly random spots like the merchant building in the industry building tab and i have yet to find where the abandon village button which should be in the options with renaming the village like on the desktop version. The tooltips are uninformative and something intuitive like clicking on the food display on the top right just gives you a vague tooltip with no information on what food you have and a seemingly random card from that pile that you have available. In order to actually see your supplies you have to click on the actual building, instead of the obvious area of the overall count. Also the tooltips in the promotion screen are generally useless while the button tells you that you are getting diplomatic options and more tech options as you rank up there is no information on what you are actually getting with the rank which leads to you having to either experiment to find the options or actually go on the wiki to look it up. While these are just a couple of examples they are the ones I run into repetitively. Overall it feels like they really put the minimum effort into the app and as a fan i really wish they had put more effort into the accessibility of the game for what seems to be genuine things that should really have been an obvious choice in development.

I started playing this game some odd 6 years ago on PC, and it never failed to be a 30-minute-a-day type. One could argue this game is like Clash of Clans, but it's so different in all the right ways. If you spawn in the right places, you've got yourself a Game of Thrones-like, topdown strategy game like no other. The attack style is fun, and the defense style is even better, but the real magic happens away from the battlefield, making allies with those around you, and working together to push the borders of your enemies further and further back until you have a real foothold in real world regions. The most fun I personally have had, is spawning in an outside region of where I live, and working together with new friends to fight into that region and build a new village where my home is in real life. 10/10, a truly great experience.
