Be a King is a “village” constructing and management game, equivalent to the Create-a-Lot games. You set up buildings to develop your town and handle the wants of your persons.

So if you are sick of these games and are searching for a modify in scenery, Be a King ought to be a good modify and will preserve you entertained.
