When playing RPG games, some people prefer real time action while others fall for old school turn-based strategies. But what if you could have the best of both worlds?

King's Bounty is an original RPG game that mixes real-time free exploration with turn-based battles, all set in a medieval environment with kings, dragons, wizards, treasures and spells.

The first step in King's Bounty is creating your character, though unlike other similar games this process is limited to choosing any of the three classes available (warrior, paladin or mage) and coming up with a name. You're then introduced to a bit of historical background, but you can skip that if you can't wait to start questing.

The gameplay in King's Bounty slowly unveils a main plot while presenting the player with various quests, puzzles and mysteries. You're free to explore the game's universe at your own pace, but as soon as you engage in a battle, the game will change to a turn-based structure in which you need to plan your next movement very carefully if you want to defeat the enemy.

While this kind of battles may be a bit boring for those of us used to real-time action, there's one thing King's Bounty stands for: its graphics. Characters, objects and scenarios are depicted with a high degree of realism, great light effects and very vivid colors, creating an immersive atmosphere that makes the whole adventure even more enjoyable.

King's Bounty is an entertaining RPG adventure with excellent graphics and an original turn-based battle system that will put your strategic skills to test.
