For The King on Mac

For The King is a board game-style turn-based RPG that has a lot of charm and humor packed into it. It goes without saying that, for such a game, inviting two pals along for the ride is a sure way to have even more fun during the gameplay.

The game has an unusual appearance and basic mechanics that actually allow players to create a lot of complex in-game strategies. Fans describe For The King as an RPG with a lot of replay value, thanks to the wide variety of weapons, classes, and other unlockables that can be found during the quests. It just gets better and better every time the game is played and the co-op mode adds to the fun.

The Story

Fahrul’s once-peaceful kingdom is now in danger after its King was assassinated by an unknown attacker. The virtuous Queen Rosomon, with nowhere else to turn and her resources depleted, has made a last-ditch appeal to the people of the realm to help stop the flow of approaching catastrophe. You join the game in a chaotic world where you face an uphill battle.

There are three main campaigns in the game and each has you exploring a randomly generated kingdom, slaying monsters, and traveling between different towns. It’s preferable to play as a team, with one to three players each controlling one of three heroes in a party. It is up to you and your characters to take turns traversing the overworld hexes, avoiding or engaging in combat with random encounters, such as scaling the side of a mountain to get your hands on a shining blade.


To be successful in the game, it’s essential to go out there and explore, since you’ll frequently be juggling many tasks at once. Characters take turns attacking each other using their speed stat, much as in a JRPG. Battles are not fair and characters may only help each other in combat if they are within a few hexes of the fight, therefore an ambush can be devastating if it comes as a surprise.

The actions in the game are often resolved when you roll 100-sided dice against your stats, which may vary from 70 to 90 in what each character is strong at, and as low as 40 in what they’re weak at.

Coordination and problem-solving abilities that examine every available resource and component are essential for successful strategy-building, and sharing that task with numerous cooperating players is a great pleasure.


For The King’s captivating visuals shouldn’t deceive you into taking the game lightly. Even though it seems like something out of a children’s book in terms of design, underneath the silly headwear and adorable character designs is a roguelike RPG with a bite. If you underestimate the difficulty of the game’s generated maps and the turn-based battles that take place on them, you will be severely bitten.

Resurrecting the dead is limited, and the only way to do it is to find and destroy the hidden cult lairs. Lose all your heroes, and it’s game over.
