The game is a blend of several genres: RTS, adventure and life-sim, tied together with a strong storyline and a control system that is simple and intuitive. New elements are constantly being introduced as the game progresses, but thanks to on-call tutorials and minimalistic commands, the learning curve is a mere 5-10 minutes at most. With its kid-friendly PG rating, Little King's Story is accessible to all ages. It is tailor-made for the Wii so there are none of the graphics or control issues that can accompany a ported version. Going multi-genre can be a risky gamble; we can think of several titles which have suffered due to an 'identity crisis'. In the case of Little King's Story, however, there is a perfect balance between genres and the gamble has really paid off.
