Three Kingdom

“Following the fall of the Han Dynasty, China was divided into the states of Wei, Shu, and Wu. They were collectively known as the Three Kingdoms. This particularly violent period of history ended with the conquest of Wu by the Jin Dynasty.”

It is very loosely based on the Three Kingdoms period (220-280 CE) in the history of China. Since the monarchs of all these three regimes were titled emperors, the name of the period would be more accurately translated as "Three Empires".

The campaign consists of 13 levels with five stars each. Upon earning all 65 stars, the player receives 35 Crowns.
