Well, would you look at that, another kingdom is in peril and you must defeat the king's power hungry son before it is too late. Nano Kingdoms makes you a loyal army commander to the king who must fight his away across the kingdom to gain allies, and prepare for the final confrontation. Defensive strategy games are pretty common and widespread across the 'interwebs, but the boys at Trutruka managed one that will peak your interest if you don't mind a little micro-management. Defend your castle with villagers and warriors alike while wielding magical spells to give you an extra edge in combat. Everyone in this casual RTS kingdom is in trouble so heed the call of duty on your computer or a mobile device to crush the evil!
Just click on the type of soldier you want to deploy and it will be built in front of your castle. You upgrade your castle with different warriors and buildings by clicking on it, provided you have enough resources to do so. Certain buildings allow you to train better warriors or help you to collect the necessary resources for their deployment. Manage your resources well because you don't want your ill-trained villagers to fall prey to your enemy's deadly archers. The battle is over once either castle loses all of its health and a score is given based on the length of the battle. A healthy balance of offense, defense, and magical spell bonuses are the keys to winning each skirmish so you can hurry to end the evil Alexander.
The game presents a rather unclear story to tie all the commanders together, but when playing a nice, casual strategy game like this, you don't really need a story to keep you going. The ambient soundtrack is entrancing and makes you yearn for renaissance times as your white doll warriors clash in static yet beautiful landscapes. There is even enough difficulty spread throughout the game so you will not run out of worthwhile foes as you close in on Alexander's walls. Another big plus side to this fun flash game is that it has eight levels which you can try out all the commanders on and it is completely free for both browser and mobile platforms, with an iOS version on the horizon to boot. You can waste away a rainy afternoon defending a quaint castle while your chores sit to the wayside and feel no remorse.
