It's a combination that does not seem like it should work, but puzzle game play as a combat system for a RPG makes for a very entertaining game - if you like puzzle games like Bejeweled. Puzzle Quest [Download] is the pioneer of this kind of RPG puzzle game (as far as I know) and a hallmark title that you should play. Clash of Heroes has a very similar feel but the puzzle gameplay is slightly more complex than a "match 3" game. You still match rows and columns of pieces, but instead of swapping or rotating them in a grid you slide them in and out of columns. Matching 3 or more in a row creates a wall (defensive structure) while matching 3 in a column creates an attack formation. At its core it is that simple, but there are advanced elements that enhance the gameplay: linking like-colored formations together to enhance their power, forming multiple walls/formations in a single move to gain additional moves, and so on.

You command 5 different heroes, each with his/her own special power and unique set of creatures to command. The game is paced quite well. Higher strength creatures are meted out over the course of each character's story arc, giving you something to look forward to as you progress. You switch between characters throughout the campaign, which keeps things fresh. I have not played any of the multiplayer games, but the single player campaign is very entertaining.

Clash of Heroes is an great casual game that you can play in short 15 minutes intervals, or for extended sessions. It was originally designed for the Nintendo DS and it shows in how the user interface is designed, but it plays just fine on the PC using a mouse. I highly recommend it if you like puzzle games. The addition of role-playing elements adds a fun purpose to the puzzle gameplay and provides a rewarding story arc that gives you a sense of accomplishment.

This is a decently fun puzzle game and offers a good challenge (at least for me). I got hooked on RPG-esq puzzle games with Puzzle Quest and am now a sucker for picking up any I see.

The gameplay is completely turn-based, and with no time limit so you are free to think out your moves with all the time you need. That doesn't mean it is easy though, I often feel like the AI has the deck stacked in their favor.

It's mostly a 'match three' type game; however you cannot 'swap' pieces to make matches like you do in games like Bejeweled. A vertical match of 3 will attack your opponent, while a horizontal match of 3 will form a wall that can block some or all of your opponent's attacks. So how do you form matches without being able to `swap' pieces? You can grab the last piece on any column, and move it to a different column. This uses up one of your 3 moves per turn. The other option is you can remove any single piece from the board, no matter where it is. So if in a column you had blue, green, blue, and blue you could remove the green to form a match of 3 blues. If when you remove a piece a match forms, it does not use a move. If you remove a piece and no match forms, it consumes one of your three moves per turn. If you create multiple matches you will get bonus moves. You get a set number of pieces per game, and you can spend a move to replace any pieces you have used previously, this replenishes your side of the board with new pieces to make more matches. This continues until you deal enough damage to your opponent.

There are some additional factors to the game like elite and champion units, but that's the gist of it. As I've mentioned earlier, I find the AI tends to get pretty stacked odds, or I'm just not lucky. I often find the AI getting to start each combat with several opportunities to delete a unit and create a match, which often results in them getting several free moves during their turn and they can easily create 3 or more matches right at the start. That aside, the game is still winnable and keeps a challenge to the player by limiting the amount you can `level up' and not offering any kind of difficulty setting (it is what it is).

There is a main storyline that's pretty mediocre and not at all good, but none of these games tend to have a good story so that's par for the course I guess. There are side quests and mini-games however that give you something a bit extra to do if you wish.

The game does feature multiplayer, but I haven't touched it. I play all my games single player.

This game is a mixture of tetris, and a very light rpg. You follow the stories of each of the 5 characters during a time when the demon world attemps to invade their world. There are puzzles, grinding, artifacts, and a light sometimes funny story. The character you control and their troops level up with experience. You have rows and colums of troops and your enemy has them. You have to arrange like type and color troops to form attack or defense. More powerful troops require multiple like color troops to activate them. Once attack troops are activated they have to charge for a given time. They can be destroyed, stopped, or slowed down when attacked. Your attack troops once activated charge forward through your enemy's troops. Each troop/defense item hit hurts your attack units strength. How ever much strength is left hits your enemy's hit points directly. First one to loose all their hit points loses. There is a lot of items and spells that affect this but those are to be discovered as you play. Acording to Steam which you have to use to play this game, i have put over 70 hours in this game. It does not seem that long which is a good thing for a game. I really like the quick battles against all the characters in the game. I would suggest adding the I am the boss dlc. It adds flavor the my favorite part of the game.

I can not comment on the multiplayer component. I have not used it and dont play multiplayer in any game. There are achievements for playing multiplayer though.

This is my favorite way to unwind after a long hard day at work. Easy enough to jump right into, but hard enough to not be boring.

Well, it's NOT at all Heroes, but it is a turn-based game, and I had lots of fun playing it. Almost as much fun as Heroes III. But . . . I still go back to Heroes . . .

Excellent game, quick download through Steam code. Always look out for Amazon deals, they are sometimes better than Steam sales!

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon December 15, 2014
I loved playing Clash of Heroes on the Xbox 360, and when I traded up for the Xbox One I went into CoH withdrawal. Glad to pick it up (for cheaps!) for my PC.

Clash of Heroes is a variant on the match-3 puzzle genre. In a nutshell, you match 3 horizontally to make a wall and defend your side, or match 3 vertically to attack the other player. There are some piece variations and a few specific puzzles where you need to hit a certain target, but generally that's the idea.

The RPG factor is the campaign mode, where you play through the five elements, leveling up your characters and units, and picking up artifacts that can influence the battle. There's plenty of variation here to keep you occupied for at least the 30 or so hours of the campaign or, if you're like me, for years against friends online. It's a really well-done puzzle game that earns its five stars.

I am currently a huge fan of King's Bounty and by relation all of the M&M series as well. I also enjoyed Puzzle Quest and the various spin offs of that one as well.
Although the production on this is quite good, the strategy can become somewhat confusing and the overall story line just wasn't my cup of tea.
Even so, this is a good turn based strategy game for the money.

As far as turn based RPG's go i think it was a really fun game, if you're a final fantasy tactics type of person this game is good for that type of fun.
