Mobile Royale is a hot and attractive-looking mix between an MMORPG and a strategy game. You’re put into the shoes of a base commander guided by a rather attractive advisor and your task is to conquer and defend yourself from other conquerors. You’ll command your own soldiers, heroes, and at the same time, be aided by an ancient dragon. However, under its luster lies a gameplay that is reminiscent of most mobile titles in the genre. So, should you give it a try and start lining your armies for battle?
Mobile Royale starts off with an opening cinematic of a crusader and a demihuman in battle which was then interrupted by a dragon. This doesn’t say anything about the main plot, though it’s a great way to kick things off with a bang. That aside, the moment you’re directed to your base, you’re treated to the game’s high production value. Everything, from your castle down to the upcoming battles, looks stunning. The animations are smooth and sleek, though there are noticeable framerate drops even in powerful devices.
Underneath the luster and outstanding graphics, lies an old, unoriginal yet reliable gameplay mechanic: base-building. In a nutshell, you’ll be tasked to upgrade castles and different facilities around your base. These range from your resource-gathering buildings to the ones you use to train units. Of course, you’ll also need to wait for them to finish the construction which can be sped up by gems, the game’s premium currency. The same can be said about training units. The game is generous with resources and timers at the start of the game, but as you progress, it gets a little more stingy. The entire base management aspects are streamlined and intuitive, but they’re something you’d want to forget about. However, it plays a crucial role on which units you’d want to bring to battle. Also note that most structures are covered by a level cap and you can’t build them unless you reach a certain level.
The main meat of the game lies in the campaign mode where you go through a story which progresses through levels composed of set piece battles. The game has decent world-building aspects, with in-game dialogue talking to you about the different races around its world and about why they’re attacking you.
Battles are relatively short and although they only require minimal participation from players, they’re fun to watch. Control is only limited to activating character skills and by activating your dragon’s skills. There are also instances wherein you can summon units to help you turn the tide of battle. You can acquire new heroes by summoning them in your base/village. They each have skills ranging from powerful strikes against a single unit to ones dealing AoE damage. There’s also a multiplayer aspect wherein you can form alliances and join guilds, but these are only worth looking at once you reach the higher levels.
Overall, Mobile Royale is an attractive yet non-original package, yet something you’d want to play. It’s more refined than its peers, and better looking at that. It’s not anything new or revolutionary, but it provides a fun experience you’d want to play.
