StoryBlocks: The King from Afil Games is a chill narrative puzzle game in a medieval setting. The game’s story goes like this: once upon a time, there was a young man who had a dream of becoming King. Wrapped in his dream of becoming King, he left his village in search of adventures. He wanted to explore the world and find out how to achieve his goal. What happens next in his journey will depend on the choices you make!

Between the game’s story segments, you’ll be using the available pieces to create a pathway between point A and point B. For this, you’ll move a cursor around the screen by using the left analog stick, zooming in and out with the ZL and ZR buttons, and rotating the camera with the L and R buttons so that you can get a better view of things. You can also use the right analog stick for the camera. The A button will be used to add and remove blocks as needed. You can rotate blocks by pressing the B button to better fit them.

The blocks you place will not only form a path for you to continue your journey, but they will also introduce story variations for you to consider. This is why it’s important to pay attention to each level’s layout. While there might be more than one path for you to take, know that you will only be able to choose one of them to carry forward. How your story takes place will be up to no one else but you. You can end your journey by placing a book block, and then you’ll be able to start back from square one.

 

StoryBlocks: The King Review - 3

StoryBlocks: The King is a chill narrative puzzle game in a medieval setting. As you start each journey, you’ll be able to place blocks to send your character down this or that path, which will, in turn, determine how your story develops. I would have liked the game to offer a way to customize the sensitivity of the left analog stick – or for the game to support the console’s touchscreen when playing in Portable or Tabletop Mode – since the transition from PC to console has left the controls feeling far from ideal. StoryBlocks: The King is out on Nintendo Switch with a $4.99 price tag.
