In KingsRoad, players take on the role of knight, archer, or wizard, embarking on a journey across the kingdom of Alderstone to reclaim their land from the monstrous creatures that threaten it.

The amazing 3D visuals in KingsRoad are powered by the latest version of Adobe’s Flash 11 Stage3D technology, which streams high fidelity graphics with no download or delay.
