In a land where The Ancient Law states that kings of the four races should take turns to rule, the current king is determined to rule forever. But to do it he and his minions will have to overcome The Judges, titanic monsters whose job is to enforce the Ancient Law and prevent pretenders from ascending to the throne.
Puppet Kings is a modern take on the Breakout genre taking block-breaking to new levels of fun by introducing characters, boss rush as primary game mode and a roguelike twist.
Puppet Kings is a different take on Breakout, a game that was a variation of Pong, the gimmick being it was a one-player game about you breaking all the blocks with Pong mechanics, being ball, "pallet" and great physics. After that introduction, we can get to the game. Your "pallet" is a monster and you bounce projectile/ball at blocks/enemies. Graphics are really nice and colorful, although sometimes it might get little busy and you might miss projectile sometimes. Controls are responsive and nothing to complain about, really. If by looking at those wonderful paint inspired graphics thinking the game will be slow paced, think again, because it is fast, which I like. But you're wondering what differs it from breakout? Simple - power-ups and bosses. If you ever played Arkanoid, you know what's this game is all about. The only thing that is bad about this game is the fact it is pretty short on content - you might beat it in 3, maybe 4 hours. There are plenty of bosses and the game is varied, there are also unlocks, so if you're into classic arcade games, I guess the playtime doesn't matter much, because you will come back for the simple and fluid gameplay. Overall, pretty good game, pretty varied, but little short on content. Some years ago it might've been good, but nowadays with huge choice, the price might look little steep. Still, really good game. 7/10
