5.0 out of 5 stars androidgaming101.blogspot.com Review May 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
First and foremost, Heroes is obviously inspired by the Heroes of Might and Magic series. Instead of wearing this inspiration on it's sleeve, this game wears it's inspiration proudly on the front of it's shirt. However, there are quite a few differences which make Heroes: A Grail Quest very smartly streamlined over the HOMM series.

The base gameplay invloves guiding your hero on a quest for the Holy Grail, to save the ailing King Arthur; fighting monsters, recruiting troops, and collecting mystical objects along the way. The hex based world is expansive, taking weeks of ingame time to traverse. By foot and by ship, through snow and desert, you will explore the world on your quest for the Grail.

But what would a quest be without conflict? Fortunately, there are plenty of battles to fight along the way. Typical fantasy tropes fill the ranks of all the armies, elven archers, zombies, mummies, the list goes on. The battles between these stacks of fantastical creatures takes place on a smartly confined space, ensuring that your battles never last longer than a minute or two. Castle seiges are particularly important, as retaking these castles will directly affect the Gold in your purse. The decision to shrink down the battlefield was a wise one, and resonates with other smart choices in the design.

The one and only resource in the game is Gold; which you use to charter ships, hire armies, and pay said armies. Gold can be acquired through random chests, weekly stipends (which can be increased by capturing castles); and of course, battles. To access more powerful (and expensive) troops, you must fight your way into enemy crypts and tombs, freeing the structures up to provide you with beasts of varying abilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Turn-Based Strategy Lovers, Rejoice! August 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
This review is a bit on the long side as in-game instructions are basically non-existent, so I do try to highlight certain game mechanic aspects that players may miss.

Of course I fell in love at first glance at this title. HEROES: A GRAIL QUEST is quite a wonderful Android rendition of KING'S BOUNTY, the progenitor of the HEROES OF MIGHT AND MAGIC series, one of those games I quite poignantly remember playing on the Apple IIe, leading a deep abiding love for the entire series that followed. Even the bare plot story line is similar. In KING'S BOUNTY, you search for a scepter to save the king's life by collecting map pieces whereas HEROES just dresses it with an Arthurian reference.

However, one element have been "streamlined" out of HEROES that was present even in the 1990 release of KING'S BOUNTY. You only have the Knight (as opposed to a choice of 4 classes). But beyond this simplification, much of what I remember is present: Exploration, Army Recruitment, Spell Scrolls, Hero Leveling with increasing skills, Troop Morale (which is influenced by troop types/alignment present in your army), even a form of town-available contracts on certain enemy held castles. The overall interface is basic without any real eye-candy, instructions are near non-existent, depth of RPG detail somewhat shallow, and a single bad choice in attacking without sufficient troops can be rather disastrous. Still, this is also much in the same vein as the original, and as a fairly simple turn-based strategy game, suitable for preteen and up.

On day 1 of each week, you get more gold and every recruitment point replenishes with more troop types. Stockpiling troops is a rather needful thing, especially ranged troops.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great throwback! Worth the asking price. August 5, 2014

EDIT 2 [2014, Oct. 30] last review since no updates have been made.

After playing for a while now, I can say that this is not an easy game at first and maybe for a while. Repeating game play becomes boring with no variation of AI during battle. Battles are hard if not impossible to beat. You are given a certain amount of time to complete the only single main quest of the game. On the very first island you start out on, you need to save money and weeks pass by before you gain enough for a decent army for your first battle. After gaining a good amount of archers you can then start to attack. This seems to be the style of game play. Gain a massive amount of one type of unit, maybe two. Oh and do not forget you need to pay for the armies wages each week. So don't go past your income per week. Go into battle and take minimum damage and complete your side quests (taking over castles).

Yes, this is a very fun throwback game. A game style which is very much lacking on Android. I can see why it is only selling for .99˘ it feels like a very unfinished game. I would love to see an update to this game. I feel it is in great need for a good update.

So far this seems to be the only game on the Android unless you use an emulator to play Heroes (HOMM). If this game were to get some tweaked AI, better gold/income management, make the first island on easy level more of a tutorial on how to play the game, when sailing it would be fun if a game style such as Seven Seas from Popcap was used (you get to do battle at sea, boat to boat canon fire and then upon a damaged boat you enter into the grid style fighting but a damaged ship might loose some of the armies on the boat), the purchasing of more Heroes, more quests than the Grail but could still be related to the theme?
