Gameplay

Upgrade your troops!

In Game of Thrones: Conquest, you get the chance to be a Lord of Westeros, battling other realms, an army of the dead, and sometimes dragons. The clan will work together to capture seats of power as they work their way towards the Iron Throne. You can also build armies, but to do this, you’ll need to build your kingdom and harvest plenty of resources – do this by playing the game for some time or just spending real life money.

Like the vast majority of empire building games, Game of Thrones: Conquest has wait timers for buildings and troops that scale up quickly. You’ll also be met with familiar faces but we’ll talk more about that later…

Graphics

The graphics are disappointing!

Oddly, the graphics are pretty much identical to every other empire building games out there but the thing that stands out the most to me is that it focuses a lot on the Game of Thrones characters, however bad the plot might be. The visuals of this game really aren’t the best. Do you want an example? I’ll give you a terrible example. When you switch screens, the background changes to a close-up of the iron throne, and it seems to have been rendered for a screen of 70-80 DPI which just doesn’t work for an iPhone X. It’s pretty blotchy and blurry – not a good look, Warner Bros.

Music

As for the music, at first, it did seem very Game of Thrones-esque but once you get into the gameplay, it’s just some drum-based music on repeat. And it’s pretty annoying – you’ll see in the video! There aren’t any character sounds or anything like that either – this game was obviously very cheaply made.

Controls

Tap to progress!

As for the controls, it’s very tap and drag based. The Game of Thrones characters like to pop up a lot to tell you what to do so you need to tap through the conversation and when it comes to the actual gameplay, you need to tap the buildings you want to upgrade etc.



The Power of in-app Purchases

Purchase packs to progress!

Sadly, this game is HEAVILY based on in-app purchases, and I mean heavily. There are quite a few packs you can purchase to enhance your gaming experience:

  • Starter Pack – 400 gold, Second Builder (3 days), 2-Hour Peace Shield, and 60M Speedup for £0.99
  • Renowned Architect’s Pack – Tobho’s Leather Apron, Second Builder (3 days) and 300 Bricks for £4.99
  • Master Architect’s Pack – Tobho’s Tool Belt, Tobho’s Leather Apron, and Second Builder (3 days) for £9.99
  • Rhaegal’s Fury Pack – 20,000 Livestock (epic), 2 Dragon Bonus Feeds +1, and 600 Dragon Lore for £9.99
  • Rhaegal’s Fury Pack – 220,000 Livestock (epic), 22 Dragon Bonus Feeds +1, and 4,400 Dragon Lore for £48.99

Game of Thrones: Conquest has packs that range from £0.99 to £99.99 and are pretty much essential unless you want to wait around a lot.

The Verdict

Did you enjoy Game of Thrones: Conquest?

Well, this game was a disappointment so if you’re a Game of Thrones fan, don’t bother. As all you’re going to be doing is raising new buildings, leveling them up, getting some researches done and then training your troops, the game gets pretty repetitive really quick.

I’m upset because they made the game look super cool with console-quality graphics in the advert, but the game did not live up to it. AT ALL.
