The Hobbit management game

It should happen that we all are quite surprised by Kabam's choice on developing a management game based on The Hobbit, and not an adventure game or whatsoever. More odd seems the initial choice between dwarves or elves when we talk about a film in which elves take only a secondary role. Storyline gets odder when you realize that it takes place after [spoiler] Smaug's defeat [/spoiler], or at least that's what we would expect, though we can't tell for sure because an in-game Gandalf says that elves and dwarves wrestle over the Misty Mountain but cooperate to fend off the goblin hordes from beyond (really? wow! the goblin hordes from Angmar have arrived?)

Now that's obvious that Tolkien purists are running away from this piece of heresy to Middle Earth lore, let's focus on the game itself. It's a crude management game, in which you have to create farms (be warned, both "dwarven farm" and "elven farm" are concepts beyond our understanding) to increase your city's population, train troops and assign heroes to lead them. Of course, you can't do anything without resources, so that will be your main goal: to get in-game (wood, gold, etc) and premium (mithril) resources. There's a social side, too, as you can take part in online competitions and forge alliances with other players, namely your friends. In order to do so, an online real-time chat has been included as a feature.

Don't misunderstand this review. The Hobbit is a good management game, full of the best features from other games in the management genre, and its many in-app purchases are cheaper than other similar games'. However, we'd rather prefer that a solemn franchise as The Hobbit got something better than an Arcane Empires Middle-Earth skin.

    Graphical issues, static on menus and freezing/lagging when you move the screen. Very enjoyable though. A lot of fun

    I had fun with this game until the last update. So many glitches slow the game down until it is almost unplayable.

    Would like the updates to go to everyone at once though. Some players seem to get updated before others. All in all its a great game.
