About My Kingdom for the Princess:
This title has a unique strategy/click-management framework that makes it an impressive causal game offering lots of hours of entertainment. There are 4 stages with 12 levels each for 48 levels total. The story is about Princess Helen who was out visiting her uncle King Sigmund, when a horrible tornado hit the kingdom. Luckily for Helen, a famous knight named Arthur offered to help return to her father and rebuild the kingdom.
