Fat Princess is primarily a multiplayer game for up to 32 players, with the basic goal of rescuing the Princess and bringing her back to the team's base. The players pick up and carry cakes to feed the Princess, which makes her heavier and harder for the enemy to carry back to their own castle. The game contains six character classes (Villager, Worker, Priest, Ranger, Mage, and Warrior) and three downloadable classes (Pirate, Ninja and Giant) each of which contributes to the team's task of capturing the princess in a unique way.
In Fat Princess, the player joins one of two opposing groups consisting of up to 16 characters each, with the goal of rescuing their team's princess from the other team's castle. To make their opponents' task more difficult, players can feed the captive princess cake slices. With each slice, she becomes heavier and harder to carry back to her respective castle. Over time, the effect of the cake wears off.
Players can change their character classes and abilities by picking up hats that are generated at their team's castle. Hats can also be found on the warzone where enemies have fallen. The game's six classes are the villager, priest, mage, warrior, ranger, and worker with three additional classes (pirate, ninja and giant) unlocked from DLC. Each class has its own unique set of abilities and skills. Classes can be upgraded by having a worker collect resources from the map and then upgrading the hat-producing machines. Upgrades provide alternative weapons or attacks to each class.
On each map there are several trees and ore nodes that worker classes can use to obtain resources.
Other interactive objects are bombs, potions that turn players into chickens when thrown, and torches that most classes can use to ignite their weapons to do additional damage.
I bought this because it was on sale and it was pretty fun ^^
