Game release: “Little King’s Story” (PC)

Nintendo games are rarely if ever ported to other consoles, but Cing‘s and Town Factory‘s original strategy title Little King’s Story recently received a PC port by Marvelous.

Despite already being available on Wii and PS Vita (both of which I own but haven’t come around playing yet), the PC user base will now be able to enjoy this cute-looking title, although it doesn’t seem to come without its problems. Control and especially graphics issues are reported, which is a shame, as it again showcases with how little care original console games are treated, as can be seen with the Deadly Premonition disaster where the developer actually apologized that they weren’t familiar with computer configurations.

Now at least the game looks to be running, although with 30 fps (instead of the stuttering 60 fps option) and with a controller as the preferable choice. Not having a Sony or Nintendo console is another aspect why one shouldn’t dismiss the title, as it’s the only way to play it at the moment. Setting these issues aside, this looks like a lovely time waster.

One has to control a king who has to fight and build for his kingdom, not unlike the premise of Kingdom: New Lands, but with a funnier approach and the typical cartoon-y style of Nintendo. Seeing all the minions following the king and going on quests with some catchy music definitely brings a smile on one’s face so that one hopefully forgets about the port’s problems that can still be fixed if the developer/publisher decides to work on them.
