Royal Chaos


So i'm compelled to do a review of this game because it's one of the first games like this I've played. I've played many different phone games but I never played anything as strange as this one. Maybe there are weirder games but this is just my experience.

Some of you may have seen one of those misleading ads of the game on Instagram. The ad was weird and seemed to be advertised as some sort of royal Chinese torture fetish game. (Ads on Instagram mind you). So i wanted to see if it was real or not. I couldn't imagine a game like that being sold in the Google Play Store. But who knows, right?

I installed it and its thankfully not a torture fetish game, but some sort of romance fantasy game. But its more than that.

This game is like a romance, fantasy, turn based RPG, card game, dating sim, social media app, farming simulator, battle royal, Pokemon bootleg, and a bunch of other stuff. Like it's got so many things. The Menu is busy af and its got a lot of nooks and crannies and secrets. It honestly too much. Getting through the daily activities alone takes about 30 minutes to 45. Maybe less if your fast enough. There's a lot of things to can do to level up your characters. The whole game is centered around making your character as strong as possible through various different methods laced throughout the game. It can be fun but repetitive but the bizzarness of the game alone could keep you playing. There's a section where you slap people for pills as a daily reward. Not even kidding. Especially when you learn its only a year old. And it's already added a lot since I started playing and i've only been playing since December. 

You get the option of playing as a male or female of different classes, but I chose warrior female because i didn't know what i was picking. And ended up with the default. And each gender has it's own story line. The Male story line is focused on becoming the strongest guard in the palace while wooing the princess. While the female story line is focused on a woman becoming the emperors favorite concubine and battling against the others in his harem. It's honestly sort of crazy on both ends. Needless to say i'm not entirely happy with the story, especially since the emperor is a fucking prick hole. But the story is supposed to be set in an ancient China-themed world and this is similar to who women were treated. (Actually they were treated way worse but still) I would say its an excuse for it but I don't really care for it either.

But nobody i've met while playing the game will play it for the story. That's only a slice of the cake.

There's a lot to love in this game honestly. 

I'd give it a 6.8 out of 10 mainly because i don't know where it's going yet. I want to see how things end up.

And since i'm not a big fan of the story, i made my own AU in this picture. 

My concubine hates the emperor but fakes interest in him for years while scoping the palace to plan its demise. Everyday she daydreams of her plan to burn the entire palace to the ground, and escape into the mountains never to be seen again. But for now she needs to wear a pretty face.
