This is a super, super fun game, but with very little lasting power. It’s very simple which, in my opinion, is its strength and weakness wrapped into one. Due to its simplistic game play, you can easily learn the controls which makes a great candidate for game nights with friends. Even your best bro’s girlfriend who never touches games can quickly pick up how to play.
Unfortunately, for me, it really does end there. While Rugjen and I were surprised that we played for two hours straight, neither of us have returned to it since launch. I did try out ranked and played for maybe an hour before calling it quits.
The negative aspect to the simplicity is there are only so many strategies one can employ and after awhile, it becomes quite repetitive.
Do You Recommend Killer Queen Black?
Absolutely. This is a great game to have in your arsenal for game nights. I would not let the simplistic nature of the game deter you. I can see me and Rugjen dusting it off every once in awhile and at $19.99 on Steam, you can’t really beat it.
