‘We Rule’ for iPhone: Gameplay Walkthrough and Tips

we rule iphone tips_4

We Rule is developed by Ngmoco and New Toy and is a great Kingdom building, social interactive game. The game play is simple you farm and harvest crops, build shops and houses and rule your own kingdom. The game is relatively easy to play but here is a detailed run through and tips to help you along.

When you first launch We Rule for iPhone you sign into your Plus+ account. If you don’t have one already it is very straight forward to set up via your iPhone. Then the first thing you will see is a picture of your kingdom and if you already have some plus+ friends you will see their kingdoms too, all nicely lined up together. Each kingdom will have their name above it and a number next to it, that number is the level they are on.

Once you tap into your castle when you first start the game there is a little wizard who helps you along a few levels with an easy to follow tutorial. The first thing he will do is teach you how to plant a farm and grow crops. You get money and xp (experience points) for the crops you sell and you need to earn money to build and expand your kingdom. It’s very easy to do, you click on a piece of farm to buy and place it where ever you want, you choose the crop you want to grow and it is then planted for you. Before you purchase the crop it will tell you how long it is going to take to grow and this time is real time so thats how long it will actually take. When you first start the wizard will get you growing corn which takes 1 minute but all crops vary in time. If you leave the game you will get a push notification telling you when they are ready so you can go harvest them. If you don’t they will eventually spoil and you will lose them. So its kind of a time management game as well.

Once you have earned some money you will want to buy some houses for your people. These are quite cheap and will also earn you some extra money every few hours, although this isn’t alot. Every time you do something on your kingdom you earn money and xp. You will go up a level when you reach a certain xp amount and each level unlocks different things. The houses for example earn 4 coins and 2 xp points so at first I didnt actually buy lots of houses as they were not worth my investment.

Next up and this is when it gets interesting is buying a business. Depending on what money you have and what level you are at there will be certain shops available for you to purchase. You will get to buy your first one whilst doing your tutorial. Now this is when your other plus+ friends come in. Once you have a business fully constructed you will have a sign above your kingdom saying open for business. This is then telling your friends that they can come and place an order. They come into your kingdom, find the business, place an order, you accept it and then your business gets to work at producing it. Once its ready you click on it and it is delivered to which ever friend ordered it and you get money and xp points! I have quite a variety of shops at the moment and I also have some that are the same. Even if your friends don’t place an order the business still makes some kind of profit, so because of this I bought a few extra taylors as they earn quite good money and xp points. The watch towers and bakers pay a worth while investment as well.

Those are the main aspects of the game. To grow crops as I said takes time, when you first buy a building it needs to be constructed so that takes real time and the same goes for any orders placed. So you have to either wait it out or use whats called ‘mojo’ to speed it up. So if you want your beans ready there and then you click on them and it will tell you how much mojo you need. So for example 3, you click on use mojo and it processes the crops straight away. If you have no mojo you have to buy this with real money from the app store but to be honest unless you really can’t wait you don’t need it. I’ve never used any and I’m on level 16, part of the fun is waiting it out.

There are 20 different crops available and its up to you to choose the right ones to grow. You will need to work out what time they are going to be ready to harvest so that you can deal with them at the right time so for example if I know I’m not going to beable to play much all day I grow beans as they take 1 day to grow so I dont need to worry my crops will be spoilt. I always grow the same crop in every bit of farm area I have so I don’t lose track of whats ready and when.

Once you have bought a few shops and farms there is a vast amount of items you can buy to decorate your farm for your little people. Have a nosey at some of your friends kingdoms and see what they have it gets really interesting! You can build roads, trees, rivers, moats, fountains just take a look around the store.

Now if you are like me you will place your business or house somewhere then a few levels later decide it needs moving around abit. To do this you go into the store and click on redesign. It will then let you move what ever you want to where ever. Watch out though as it is very fiddly and at times you get fustrated as it picks up the wrong item or won’t place it where you want. It just takes time and move your finger over it slowly and carefully. If you decide you don’t want it any more you can sell it back to the shop but you don’t actually get what you paid for it back so you will make a loss.

Now every time you place something in your kingdom watch the changes that happen. Every item brings more people to live in your kingdom. The first time I got a pond a huge frog started jumping around my kingdom! The stables produce horses, the bakers a baker and houses more people. You get the idea! So the more you do the busier it gets. Don’t forget when you visit your friends kingdoms if they are open for business place an order as well. It all adds up into your money and xp and of course earns your friends money as well.

You can also extend your kingdom when you get to certain levels in the game because the more shops you buy you will need the extra space.

Those are the main things to help you along the way. It really is an enjoyable game once you have a few farms and businessess running and one that you can dip into through out the day. Here are some of my own personal tips:

  • Build as many farms as you can and keep growing crops.
  • Taylor shops do quite well and are cheap so build a few of them.
  • Visit your friends shops and place orders often.
  • Visit your kingdom through out the day to deal with orders and collect taxes/sales.
  • Don’t waste your money on mojo, just WAIT!
  • Add as many of your plus+ friends as you can.

Finally just have fun and show everybody that you rule! Share your game tips in the comments below and share your plus+ account username to let other players add you as friend.

    Add me. DallasRose I have been playing for about a week and love this game.

    I do have a question. I have some friends and it will say they have an open shop, but it will not let me click on the shop. The shop will be clearly available. Why is it allowing them to show up as my friend and not allowing my to ever click on their open available shops? If you could answer this it would be great!!!

    I have been noticing that my neighbors have a sign for free business but when I go in to place an order, I wouldn't see an open business sign anywhere and sometimes there are no signs at all. I have been marking it off as a sync problem but it's happen so often. Is anyone else having this problem?

    add us now and we'll order quickly also check out our kingdom's as we have many shops open!

  64. lonewolfap

    If a business has a caption oval over it with a player picture on it OR IF IT IS BLANK, then the business is 'occupied'. It needs to have the actual “Yes We'Re Open” sign in that caption. They also put that logo over the city itself before you have to enter into it.
    So only go into a friend's city if the castle in the all cities map has an Open sign over it. Those cities are rare and you have to check back often to find one. If you do, go in quickly and find a business with an Open sign. Quickly tap on it and you'll be able to place the order. There are lots of players and the older ones have more businesses, but also more friends, so therefore less chance they're open. Add me, I am constantly maintaining my businesses and expanding!

    I almost always have some businesses open! So add me:

    RebirthD

    Tips: The longer it takes to grow something, the less coins per hour you'll get. Corn get's the best coins per hour, while beans get the worst. Unless you won't be on the game for awhile, grow some corn.

    Also, Taylor shops get the best coins per hour business-wise–especially for the small amount of space they take up!

    And thanks for the add!

  106. Lynchey

    I've got plenty of open business's and i will be building more all the time. Just add me, my username is lynchey . I will accept you order asap!

  107. Troiel

    You wont see the sign saying that you have an open business, but your friends or those following you will see it.

    If you place orders in other kingdoms, you can get gold and experience when they get filled.
