What’s the best part about major motion pictures? Free-to-play licensed video games! Why, I fondly remember as a child highly anticipating the day when I’d get to have the characters I’d come to know and love from the Star Wars trilogy instruct me on how to repair the moisture farm equipment to provide water to sell to the Jawas in order to get more droid parts to increase the rating of my encampment. “Then,” I thought, “Then I will be able to announce this accomplishment on Facebook and invite my friends to the fun.” That’s how I remember 1983, anyway. Oh, which reminds me: there’s a Hobbit game.

The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle Earth is a free-to-play game from Kabam for iOS and Android where you build a kingdom (Dwarf or Elf), going on quests, putting together an army, and gathering resources…which I think we can all agree is our favorite part of Tolkien’s writing. You can get it now on the iOS Store, provided you have an iPhone 3GS or better running iOS 4.3.

Want to see what the game play is like? Here’s a nineteen minute video:

    Do NOT play this game!! You spend money on getting the game, and maybe on mithrill, and eventually it won’t play or you can’t get into your cities or account like me and many others like me. There is NO support from Kabam or compensation whatsoever! Go to the store , get a game on cd/dvd and you know it will always work. Kabam’s game keeps giving problems and it’s a bloody waste of your money. They do nothing to solve your problem or help and dont even answer your mail when you ask for support!
