Royal Envoy has been a very popular computer game for some time, and now you can play it on your iPad in HD.
You have been appointed to the position of city chief planner of Islandshire, the land of many islands. Recently, the islands have been devastated by a terrible storm. Work with your hired help to build and upgrade homes so the residents will survive the rainy season. Then, they will create beautiful handcrafted items for the kingdom to enjoy.
Each level brings on additional challenges. The gameplay starts easy; you just have to begin constructing homes and collecting rent from the residents. Gradually, more elements and tasks are added, such as: home upgrades, gathering wood from the sawmill, adding workers, clearing roads and building banks, markets and more. Watch out and make sure that in all your quick thinking and responsibilities, your tax collectors don’t miss out on collecting rent! If you miss it, you lose the gold coins for that month.
There is an enchanting plot woven throughout Royal Envoy. The story unfolds as you continue along in the game. There are nine islands to build up and 63 different levels. Throughout the game, your assistant will guide you with hints for each level. If you prefer, you can turn off the hints in the settings.

On the other hand, you can play casually and just enjoy the process, strategy and story. Royal Envoy is integrated into Game Center, where there are several achievements you can earn.
