Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King (JPJapanese: 小さな王様と約束の国 ファイナルファンタジー・クリスタルクロニクル
Romaji: Chiisana Ōsama to Yakusoku no Kuni: Fainaru Fantajī Kurisutaru Kuronikuru
Fan Translation: The Little King and the Promised Kingdom: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles) is a video game for the Wii's WiiWare service. The game costs 1500 Wii Points, which is a total of $15 (£10.50). Downloadable content was made available in Japan on April 1, 2008, though at a price of $1–8. In all, there were six available downloadable packs, with them costing the player 1700 Wii Points, or $17 if they purchased all of them. The game isn't a traditional RPG as most Final Fantasy video games are, but is rather a city-building game, the first for the series. It was a launch title on the WiiWare in Japan (March 25, 2008), America (May 12, 2008) and Europe (May 20, 2008).
In the beginning of the game, the player is required to build a city from scratch using a variety of things. A castle, albeit abandoned, is featured as the central building in the beginning, though players will have to work around it and a mysterious powered crystal called Architek. The crystal gives the players the power to place buildings in this newfound city of theirs. However, your power Architek only has a limited supply of power. The only way to restore the power of Architek is by going to nearby dungeons and collecting smaller crystals called elementite. The only problem is that the dungeons contain monsters and as you are the king you cant risk death going to the dungeons. So the only way you can get elementite is by commissioning adventurers. There are four types of adventurer, Warrior, Thief, White Mage and Black Mage. Once you have enough elementite you can start building more buildings.
