Default Kingturn RPG Plus (by Mangobile) - SRPG



The developer, Niebau on Touch Arcade, confirmed that Kingturn Plus will be coming to iOS followed by Kingturn Underworld. Kingturn Plus is a "sequel" to Kingturn and a "remake" of Sword & Earrings (Sw&Ear).

Kingturn RPG Plus is based on the same game concept and technology as Kingturn RPG, but offers an entirely different campaign and a few new character classes.
The campaign is and extended remake of our first game title 'Sw&Ear - Tales of Andaria'.

The game combines outpost conquering with tactical combat and a complex unit skill system.
Embedded in a compelling medieval fantasy story with quirky characters, the player can delve into this old school tactics RPG for many hours.

Kingturn RPG Plus is a shareware game where the first 8 scenarios are free to try and the remaining 57 scenarios can be unlocked via a one-time in-app purchase.

Thanks to its zooming functionality the game is perfectly suited for both tablets (HD) and phones.


Tutorial
-----------
If you are new to our SRPG series, you might want to watch the video tutorial first:

Story
---------
The Kingdom of Andaria is at peace since many years thanks to the moderate and thoughtful rule of King Constantin. Even peasants start participating in the country's growing prosperity as a result of the 'King's Verdict'; - a royal law that grants a small share of wealth to the common folks, too.

The story starts with the mysterious murder of King Constantin resulting in a full-scale civil war raging all over the formerly peaceful country of Andaria.

While noble families accuse each other of being responsible for the King's assassination, the fight over the succession to the crown and throne begins ...

Thanks undeadcow! I hope this is released with the same pricing model as Kingturn - $4.99 for the full game.

I can't speak for the developer but all the Kingturn games are $4.89 on Google Play so I anticipate a $4.99 price on iOS; their previous iOS games were all around this point. Kingturn RPG Plus uses a shareware model on Google Play with a free download then IAP unlock.

Great! That explains the "freemium" description above then. I got scared for a second! I guess I don't consider a one-time unlock-all IAP game to be freemium. :P

I agree, "shareware" definitely seems a more appropriate and user friendly term.

+1; I'm also curious what changes occured with the remake. Apparently the developer added new levels focusing on the grimlock shaman, UtaKah, and it appears that Damios is now a mustached character with dual swords (instead of a shield).

Most likely it will be only 3.99$ for iOS.
Kingturn Plus is our only IAP version on Google Play, and we have a kind of long-time discount for Kingturn Plus at 3.99$.
As mentioned earlier, we want to offer the same prices for iOS and Android (as far as this is possible with Apple's tier system).

Kingturn Plus has no Prologue campaign, so unlocking the full version works slightly different compared to Kingturn (main).
The first 8 scenarios of the main campaign are free to play, and all remaining scenarios can be unlocked with a one-time inapp-purchase.

That's a good point. With all these virtual goods models out there, we shouldn't use the term freemium any longer.

Anyway, no worries. We will certainly not jump on the 'money-for-coins' wagon.
We will sell your personal data instead.
Just kidding .
