It’s been a whole year and everyone is preparing to conclude 2020 in the coming weeks. At this time of year, there is always a lot of packaging when families are preparing to celebrate Christmas. Maybe you were one of the lucky few who were able to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X in time to try out their new games. Even if you weren’t quick enough to grab one of these consoles, there are still a lot of new games for PC, including an upcoming one that takes place in a fantasy land with buried treasures and battles.
King of Seas is a role-playing game that will be released in early 2021. If you have been looking for a simple game that allows you to sail through the seas as a pirate and explore a world, this may be the right game for you. You have to avenge your father after someone executed him with voodoo Magic, but you are condemned of being the killer and you have to become a pirate. As a result, they decided to become the king of pirates.
You have the opportunity to play as one of two characters: Marylou or Luky. I decided to play as Luky, because he has more of a pirate look. The first step was to learn how to sail and steer my ship safely to a new port to deliver a cargo of gunpowder. The controls are very simple: you use two buttons to guide your ship through the sea and two buttons to control the speed of your ship. Personally, it seemed a little too easy for me and I didn’t find it very difficult to navigate my boat.
The excitement increased when I had a Royal Navy ship chasing me. confront, like Navigation, is a simple concept in this game, but it is very simple. There is no way to aim or change the angle in which shots are fired. This made it a little difficult to strike the enemy ship. I’ve played other games involving naval battles, but this one doesn’t come close to the same finesse. The most exciting part was watching my ship explode and sink as I let myself be finished by the enemy.
While the Gameplay of King of Seas did not meet my expectations, the narrative is not bad. I liked to see the cartoons when they were chatting or giving me instructions. This is a beautifully hand drawn style. In addition, the open world is beautifully designed with bright colors, bright foliage and a variety of landscapes to explore. It reminds me of Koopa Troopa beach. Depending on the weather conditions, the water can become rough during a storm, which will affect the navigation in your ship if the wind changes direction. The creators have done a great job of paying attention to these fine details.
Although there are a few elements that King of Seas performs well, the game as a whole lacks richness both in the Gameplay and in the narrative. It feels like a Knockoff Version of other pirate games and does not bring anything new to its Genre. For players looking for an introduction to a navy-based action-adventure game, King of Seas is a good place to start, but it is unlikely to arouse the interest of experienced players.
