KingdomGame2 - 10 years on and a reboot of the original game!

Hello,

Hopefully I've posted this in the right place - almost ten years ago to the day I wrote one of the first games of iOS, back when there was no App store (there was a "webapp" store which you were pushed to through Safari) and the iPhone 1 had only just been released...

... anyway, I've recreated the game to work in more of a modern way - when the game was first created ten years ago there was no such thing as mobile styling, there was no guideline as to how to build things... the game was formatted to work on the phone with hard coded non-responsive styling...

... the game has, as I've said above, been entirely updated to work better in a more modern way, to give an overview of the game - it's a medieval strategy game designed to only take a few minutes every now and then but to keep you coming back to play day after day in an ever-evolving world

Why am I writing this post? Well, last time around, there were a number of people on the forums here who were happy to help out with the testing - and it'd be great if any of those originals (or, in fact, anyone reading this) would be willing to try it out again! The feedback that was given last time really improved the game very quickly.

Play it at the following URL: https://www.kingdomgame.net - there is an app coming in the future as well.

Thanks in advance to anyone who gives it a test, it's very very much appreciated!

Kind regards,
Paul Hutson

Thanks. Two questions. I’m working through the tutorials and looking to attack another kingdom using footmen and peasants. Every attempt is resulting in an ‘out of range’ message, but there doesn’t appear to be any indication of which kingdoms are within range.

Also, there is no direct attack link showing from the rankings screen.
