King of Thieves is a auto-running platform game with a focus on dungeon-building and raiding other player's dungeons to steal gold and gems. King of Thieves is free-to-play game developed and released by ZeptoLab for devices with iOS or Android in 2015.
First, you have to build your own dungeon with a gold mine and a magic totem to enhance your gems. Place traps in your dungeon to prevent other players to reach your totem and steal your gold and gems. Invest your gold to upgrade the components of your dungeon. Every invader first has to lock pick your entrance to enter your dungeon. You can upgrade your lock to have more locks at your entrance and also upgrade the traps placed in your dungeon. This will cause to deal more damage to the raider when he gets hit by a trap. There are many more things that you can upgrade like the gold mine and your tries to pick on other player's locks.
The controls of the thieves are very easy. He runs automatically up to the next wall where he stops. You just have to tap to make him jump. When you tap when the thief touches the wall in the air, he changes his direction. Reach the totem to steal gold and have a chance to get a gem from the other player.
Magic items can be found which can be exchanged to build or upgrade the throne for your dungeon or to get new outfits for the thief from the Style-O-Thief. Better thrones can e.g. increase your health and you are able to steal more from other dungeons.
Players can compete in special leagues where you get ranked by the value of their gems. So the goal is to enhance your existing gems and steal gems from other players to receive rewards for a good ranking in your league and to qualify for better leagues. The magic totem can only be used a few times before it gets broken, thus you have to move to a new dungeon regularly. New dungeons can be unlocked in the single-player campaign.
