Royal Bounty HD is an indie RPG inspired by the old 1990’s classic King’s Bounty. It was developed by Iosoftware Ltd., a three-man Bulgarian game development studio founded in 2011 by Eugene Ivanov. They specialize in old-school-like games.
The player controls a hero named Jim who will travel the four continents in the world to recruit locals into his army, to fight battles against beasts, and to solve quests in his journey. As the player battles, Jim will level up and give benefits to his troops (the troops can have up-to 180 creature types). Solving quests will discover new areas on the map.
The game features a Turn-based Strategy combat system, reminiscent of the older Heroes of Might and Magic games. The characters engage in a hex-shaped grid battlefield with the player’s units on one side and the enemy on the other.
Royal Bounty HD was released on August 10th, 2015 for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. It is available on Steam, Humble Bundle, Amazon Store, Google Play, and iTunes. It is available in eight languages: English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Russian, Czech and Polish.
You are an adventurer named Jim, just out of the island prison. How you ended up like this is unknown. You have no gold and no army. Angry Cell Guard is chasing your heels. What a difficult situation! Your first quest is get away from the maze and find a ship. But it is just a beginning of the story. Your road lies across four huge continents, inhabited by a variety of monsters.
