We Rule is a real-time kingdom simulation game where you'll need to earn money to expand your kingdom. Earning money in We Rule requires that you grow crops and build factories and shops that will bring in a steady income over time. The touch-screen interface is fairly intuitive for choosing what type of objects you want to build, but lacks descriptions of buildings making it difficult to predict how much income you will gain by placing a specific type of building. Part of the fun is finding out which building will net you the most cash. You also can invite your friends to play We Rule and trade resources to earn money and help each other build.
The game is oddly both addictive and fun, but you'll need to commit quite a bit of time to expand to the higher levels of the game. Crops require a very specific amount of time to be ready for harvest, with growing times that can be as little as 45 seconds to big money crops that can go well beyond 12 hours. What ends up happening (from personal experience, we're somewhat ashamed to admit) is you'll need either to set an alarm, use the limited push notification features, or remember what time of day to harvest your crops before the land spoils. You also have the option to purchase extra "Mojo" from within the game, a magical solution you usually earn small amounts of by gaining levels, that makes your crops grow immediately resulting in more cash. Overall, if you like games like FarmVille (popular Facebook game) or are looking for a time waster that sucks you right in, We Rule is a good option on the iPhone.
