(+)Why is this Game better then Chess
+you have 5 turns in one move
+you can try to find the best move before you confirm
+Very good design Units
+extra tools
+You can minimalize it, you get a "Java"-info if your turn has began
+3 ways to win
*destroy the enemy's crystal(s)
*remove all his/her Units
*they can give up

(-)Why is this Game not better then Chess
-The Characters (/Units) show emotions. You must have a cold heart to killing
-You are waiting for a unknow time to make your turn
-Not aviable "Enemy is online/offline" view (like on Steam example)
-That waiting can makes you angry
-Friendship Destroyer (True Story)

(-)Why is Chess better then this Game
*You don't need to wait 2 weeks to know about a "Auto-win"
*Virtual guides (for "Team Fortress 2") are not all
*The electonic versions having a "vs PC" mode
*Master of Classic Logic Games

Port of the iOS game. No real settings, no singleplayer, no one plays it on pc. Better off with the original.

This game is awesome as hell. I don't regret the investment. Challenging and strategic, fun yet frustrating :D

Too bad the people I play with are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and make a move in 2 hours. Like, every one of them takes about 30min-2h to make a move. I think i managed to finish only 2-3 games and surrendered the others because of this.

I really liked playing this game. I found a few of the factions to be a little bit overpowered. Those wraiths were nuts. But all in all it was pretty even. I used to play it with work buddies on our phones all the time but then they stopped playing so I kinda stopped. All in all great game, if you have someone to consistently play with.

I don't like turn-based games. But this one is nice. Teams are well balanced, matches are quick. It's a good game to play with friends once a while.

absolutely love this game, have been playing it for years both on pc and ipad, this is definately not a pay to win game, its very easy to win with the free team you get. aslong as you know how to use them properly, i truely suggest playing the challenges first to learn how to play and how to play with the team effectively

Fun little tactical minis game. Relatively simple basic mechanics, but pretty good depth of play. Some of the armies get a bit more complicated if that's your thing. Good asynchronus play, a nice variety of boards, and all the armies are balanced against the middle.

With a ridiculous amount of hours on record this is the most addictive game in my library. It is NOT pay to win as another reviewer has written. Strategy is key to victory here, not cash. If you think this game is pay to win then you obviously haven't put in the patience required to learn each team's strengths and weaknesses and adjust your strategy accordingly. There are additional teams that one CAN purchase if they wish, it doesn't matter if you choose not to though, as all of the teams (although quite unique) are exceptionally well balanced.

The game can be a bit buggy.. eg. Sometimes you're greeted with a blank board and it's neccessary to refresh the game state before the pieces appear. This is probably one of the unfortunate side effects of being a cross-platform game. The strategy involved is on par with chess, perhaps not as rich as some players would like (It's no Magic The Gathering). Some people complain that players are not forced to move within a time limit. I happen to like this feature of the game as I can leave the game minimized while I am working and take my turn when I am ready.

In spite of it's minor short comings, Hero Academy succeeds in providing interesting and engaging turn-based strategy game play, which if you're a fan of such games you know there are far too few of them on the market.

DO NOT buy this game. It is a multi-player game that claims to have a solo campaign. The solo campaign are challenges like an extended tutorial. So what is this game? A turn based strategy like a complex game of chess with a board where you either destroy crystals or the other players to win the match.

Why is multiplayer bad? Because it is turn based, you finish your turn and then wait for the other person to complete their turn. How long does that take? Could be one minute, or it could be hours or days. In fact there is an achievement if you take 24 hours to make a turn. There is even an achievement to take 24 hours! Rewarding someone for wasting someone else's time is not a good thing. To compensate for this, you can play a lot of games at once. Like chess via mail. I was so completely bored playing this game that I literally opened up another game to play it as I waited for people to perform their turns and get back to me.

When you start a match, you select from one of your owned factions. You start with humans and TF2 factions when you own the game. Then if you want the other races like Elves, Dwarves, Shaolin and Tribes, its $5 each. Each faction has its own characters that play differently.

Now don't get me wrong here, this game is fine. It's just different from what I expected.

When I bought this game I was expecting some cool things like missions, custom games, and multiplayer. Heck, maybe a couple different game modes. Instead, I opened the game and the first thing I get is a tutorial shoved in my face that explains everything I could have figured out in two seconds. Then it gives me a multiplayer option and a customization option. Of course, I want to see what I can customize.

Originally, you can change your avatar and not much else. Everything else is DLC. Actually, everything in GENERAL is DLC. You want to change your team color? DLC! You want to play the other three team options? DLC! You want to play the mission mode I was ever so hoping for? DLC! You want to play the other game modes? Well there arent any other game modes but if there was that would probably be DLC as well. So after I realize that I can't play mission mode, I sigh and try to play multiplayer. Since I enjoy TF2 quite a bit, I decide to go with that team instead of the other one that I have.

Well I start playing for like 30 minutes or so and I'm enjoying it. There is a door at the bottom left with a turn number counting down. I thought that was the amount of turns you had left before the game ended. Nope. It's how many turns you have left before you can surrender. That's when I realize how LONG these games are. They are like, really, really long. Like, REALLY long. Also, the learning curve is freaking gigantic. 90 minutes in I still don't know what in the heck half of my characters do. And it seems like the teams you can buy are EXTREMELY overpowered. I swarmed the guy with soldiers, demos a scout and a medic and in one turn one of his characters walked up and killed 3 of the 5. It took me 3 turns to kill the character that did the deed.

But in the end, if you have the attention span of a goldfish like me and don't like having to buy DLC to get everything that the game promised I really don't recommend this. Although if you like games like this, have patience and don't care about money, this game is for you.

Oh and one more thing: This game is an iPhone port and feels like an iPhone port. Fair warning.

waited long time for such a game
++ you can make your turn, whenever you have time
++ you can play the same match on different devices like PC, Tablet, Cellular
-- the cost of the regular price and the unit packs
-> buy it when the gold pack is on sale, or at time in the Humble Bundle

Hero Academy is a great idea, and was really fun at first. I played a solid 10 hours on release and had a pretty good time battling with my friends.

Even if you aren't playing with your friends, the internet multiplayer option allows for quick and seamless matchmaking, meaning you can play as and when you want.

However, a few specificities of the game kind of ruin it. By default, the opening "move allowance" is set to be unfair against the person who creates the game, meaning that very very option (unless manually de-selected) your opponent (or you) will have a +3 or -3 move advantage, which very much affects the late stages of the game when every move counts.

This, for me, tilted the tables. I no longer felt I was playing a game, I felt I was inadvertantly cheating. Since then, I haven't played anymore.

A good game, but tweaking required for it to be fair. But, if you tweak your settings, you need to rely on your opponent doing so as well (which, by the way, they wont).

This is not a bad game in its own merits but has some issues. One it's that it feels clunky and slow which is not what one should expect for a mobile game port to PC. Some friends and I have ran into some issues submiting turns. Also it's grossly overpriced compared to the mobile version in which you can get almost all of the same content for half the price. There's not really a single player, only a handful of challenges and the only good way to learn the game is playing online. I did not like the strategy based on 5 actions, instead of every unit getting it's own turn but that's just a matter of taste.
