Elements of the game
The game does not feature any specific storyline but the
it starts with the player’s character breaking a prison. Then a NPC, Feggi, tells
the player that an evil King has taken over their throne. This implies that the
player once was the King of Thieves and must win certain number of leagues to get
back the throne. Feggi then provides a dungeon to guard where the player must
lay out 3 traps to prevent others from raiding it. The single player aspect of
the game focuses on 96 unique dungeons to raid in 6 different locations each
with 16 dungeons.
The player is a black coloured being with wide eyes
though costumes can be used to change their appearance. The player is always
moving unless facing against a wall. Tapping on the screen lets the player to
jump. The player must reach the chest from the door in a dungeon to pass it. The

leagues and proceed to the King of Kings league to claim back the throne. The
leagues are as follows:
Simple tapping is used to manoeuvre the character in a
dungeon. Each dungeon has 3 traps. The player must place them such that others
would not get to their totem/chest where the player stores their gems and gold.
There are many traps in the game
Other traps that affect the environment of a dungeon are
A thief is known for the rating of the gems they have. Thus,
they must steal others’ gems or conduct enhancement rituals to increase their
rating and proceed through the leagues.
Upgrading the number of keyholes, number of lockpicks,
amount of gold in the gold mine, gold produced per hour etc. can effectively
help at keeping others at bay as well as help the player in raiding others’
dungeons. The different locations in King of Thieves are:
Brown coloured dungeon
Green coloured dungeon
Blue coloured dungeon
Magenta coloured dungeon
Icy blue coloured dungeon
Olive coloured dungeon
Potions can be used as an extra help for passing a dungeon.

All the traps at their highest levels
The art style of King of Thieves is cartoonish mostly.
Each location has a feel and affect on the player of its own. Similarly, the
traps upon upgradation becomes increasingly intimidating. Costumes may vary
from childish to really appealing ones to professional to cliché outfits.
When a gem is stolen, the player can’t help but feel
proud and excited. A similar feeling occurs when a person fails while raiding
your base. Anger and hatred comes over the player when their gem or gold is
lost to other players.
The most attractive part of the game is undoubtedly the upgrades
of the properties of the dungeon and the traps. Also, the various placements of
the traps and trying the new possibilities of the defences possible in each
dungeon is also considered very exciting.
Outrage and contempt comes over the player when their
pearl or gold is lost to different players. At the point when a gem is stolen,
the player can’t resist the urge to feel pleased and energized. A comparable
inclination happens when a man falls flat while attacking your base. Additionally,
the different arrangements of the traps and attempting the new potential
outcomes of the traps conceivable in every cell is likewise viewed as extremely
energizing. The most alluring piece of the game is without a doubt the updates
of the properties of the cell and the traps.
King of Thieves is definitely a good online multiplayer
but requires the player to develop their skills almost exponentially with
increase in their levels.
