Heroes of the Realm is a browser-based online card-based fighting game where players need to build an army of card heroes, which can be obtained through the battle against players or NPCs or purchased from the store, to fight for glory and dominance.
Heroes of the Realm, released in December 13, is published by OGplanet behind games like SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Online and Lost Saga.
Localized from a Asian browser game, Heroes of the Realm tells a story that the confrontation between the Angels and the Demons broke the balance between Midland, Heaven, and the Underworld. Heres are summoned to protect their home from evil invasion and help restore the former glory.
Heroes of the Realm bears a strong resemblance to Kings of Legends, and both of the games are browser-based with a card fighting system. Even the characters look the same, and it is hard to discern the difference between the two games from its artwork and gameplay.
The game attempts to combine the city building with the card collecting while delivering a turn-based fighting experience. That should have been a great combo with such a seemingly tempting concept.
Unfortunately, the final result is far from what we were expecting. It neither brings a genuine city building experience with neat and friendly user interface, nor offers a real-time fighting. Perhaps the game will be most remembered through its repetitive piercing sound during fighting.
The game starts with a choice to pick up from one of three factions: Venizin, Kiriti, Adriago. Theoritically, there is no obvious difference regarding which faction you are devoted to and the game just indicates that the resource production bonus differs from each other. After you choose your character name, province name, and faction, you will be brought up to a new interface, a completely undeveloped and empty area surrounded by hills, woods and a river.
That is all that comes into your view. Yet the static sence quickly lets your realize this game’s graphics are as bad as if they are made by those newbie designers. Especially when you cannot toggle the game screen to fullscreen, the game becomes less engaging.
The first thing I do in the game is to receive some rewards, and then turn over a card, namely, i got my first unit card from the system. After that, I start to build the Rally Point where I should be able to manage the card units I received.
The game’s battle comes earlier that I were expecting. As soon as I’ve completed the Rally Point, I was dragged into a battle with a monster, and it comes with no surprise that I can take care of this little monster in a second with a new card received upon the victory. As I progress, I receive more cards, and I can certainly lead more card units to battle against enemies.
The battle works, as I mentioned, in a turn-based manner. Basically, you must prepare your deck before entering a battle because all battle results are determined once you enter the battlefield. Once you are in a battle, you cannot do nothing but wait for the result. The result can be shown at the speed to your liking. By default, there are four options to play the battle: 1x, 2x, and 4x. The result can also be replayed if you want to check how these little units battle in a turn-based manner.
If you have built a building called “Portal”, you may begin your journey on grinding. This setting is just the basic single player’s campaign mode that allows you to grind something in order to acquire new common cards and level up cards. As an online game, Heroes of the Realm does really feature some social options. For example, you can build your guild and arena to challenge other players.
After 1 hour’s playing, I have completed this review. One thing I should mention again Heroes of the Realm has a really small view screen under which all characters and buildings look tiny. The battle animation, as it is, serves for the useless purpose. The unit cards are good-looking with Asian anime style. Apart from that, I cannot find anything worth praising.
