5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Addicting Puzzle RPG, March 22, 2012

This review is from: Might & Magic Clash Of Heroes [Download] (Software Download)
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.
