About Sorcerer King: Rivals

About this game

Never the same game twice

You have risen to lead an up and coming civilization in the magical land of Elemental. Your village lives in the shadow of one of the precious shards of magic. It also possesses something unique in all the world -- the Forge of the Overlord. This powerful artifact allows its user to craft magical items and equipment.

Armed with the Forge of the Overlord, your people look to you to challenge the malevolent Sorcerer King, a being who has devastated the land and filled it with ruins and minions.

Unknownst to him, you have learned the Spell of Ascension that will allow you to channel the magic of the shards and enable you to ascend to a being of nearly unlimited power who can set the world free (or destroy it).

But you are not alone. Other civilizations are rising while the Sorcerer King schemes in his distant fortress. They too have their own plans…

The predecessor games were more fun than this. It's not bad but not exactly good. Buy on sale

This game is essentially Fallen Enchantress: the Mobile App. Pretty colors, 75% of the prior game's features and depth removed. Many fewer units, and no ability to design your own. Many fewer buildings. Much small tech trees. Much smaller skill trees. A lot more randomness and less ability to design your own strategy. Oh, and multiple major bugs with core abilities. So bonus. Buy on sale. This is worth about $5-10
