Battleheart is a wonderfully animated RPG game, which will keep you occupied from the time of download to late into the night when your iPad battery gives up!
We have been playing this game for two days and already we are in love with it. From the easy to understand tutorial to getting into the game play, there are hours of fun to be had. You can select various characters to battle with, we choose four characters including a healer, a witch, a warrier, and a little guy who plays a musical instrument – which inspires the fighters – apparently. This game also works on the iPhone, but we preferred playing on the iPad as you really need the space to work with.
The game requires you to really think on your feet, obviously getting harder as you go on. You need to keep an eye on all your characters and ensure your healer and warriors are doing their jobs. As you progress your characters get special abilities to help with the fighting. If you find a particular character is not paying their way you can change to a different character, but remember to level them up first by replaying lower levels, this makes the harder levels more winnable!
While we do love this game, we did find some negative factors – it would have been more interesting perhaps if there was an accompanying story line to follow. It’s would be nice to know why all these guys are fighting in the first place? Also a number of game crashes at critical battles in Battleheart left us more than a little frustrated – having to start the fight all over again!
We say at 2.99 this is a great buy with hours of gameplay, but if you are looking for a storyline narrative to go with the game, keep searching as you won’t find it in this game!
