It’s extremely difficult to be all things to all people, even if we’re only talking about one relatively narrow genre of gaming, but Solstice Arena does a good job at of pulling it off. If you’ve never played a MOBA but always wanted to give it a try, this one is an excellent way to take that first step.Make no mistake, Solstice Arena isn't a full-blown MOBA. Still, I think there's enough here in the actual gameplay to overlook a some of the missing elements and quirky design decisions.Solstice Arena is a compelling, fast-paced multiplayer battle arena, packed with a lot of nice heroes and three different game modes.It'll ask you to invest significant chunks of time into it, and if you get really serious about it you'll definitely want to splash out on a character or two, but Solstice Arena's top presentation and accessible tactical play make it worth the effort.

Great game, quick, fast-paced mini MMO. If you don't have time for long sessions 30, 45 min => this is the game for you!!!

This game is fun, but feels really unfinished. I typed a giant review but for some reason my steam deleted the whole thing. If you would like to know more, please feel free to comment and/or message me. I'd be happy for share with you.

Note for my Gameplay Time: I have played this a bunch on iPad- it was my go-to "toilet/waiting room" game for a few months. As it is the exact same game on Steam, I thought I'd toss my opinion in. I am giving it a positive review- but please read, as it succeeds in what it is trying to do but it is a very specific goal.

PROS: It is a perfectly functional mini MOBA. Everything works very well, there is little to no waiting for matches, and it seems balanced well. If there is a pay-to-win aspect I certainly haven't seen it as I've never spent a dime and have a roughly 70% win rate.

CONS: If someone, for whatever personal reasons, wants an extremely simple MOBA to play on PC- this would be a great choice. However, if you want in-depth gameplay there isn't much reason to play Solstice Arena. The graphics look good on iPad but are nothing special, very basic, on PC.

A horrible Zynga game gets ported from the iOS to PC - what can go wrong? Seriously, on the iPhone, it was more like an experiment - whether or not you can create a good MOBA (think League of Legends or Dota) on the iOS. The answer was that you can't. And now Zynga, seeing how much money Dotes or LoL get from a free-to-play MOBA genre, ports this horribly bad game to the PC. Why is Solstice Arena so bad?
Well, first of all, just look at it. It's like a five year-old's take on League of Legends. Way too cartoony. Looking at this game is like seeing how a unicorn vomits all over a paint factory. Too many bright childish colors, no proportions, horrible design, the list goes on and on.
Second of all, the game sucks. It says it is a MOBA, but it is just a 3 versus 3 bloodfest. No minions, no lanes, roles are incredibly stupid, items might as well be non-existant here - no item actives means that you will be using the same "build" on the hero all the time.
The skills are direct copies of Dota, the champion visuals of HoN and League, Originality - error 404. The champions are bland and uninteresting, absolutely no character in them. The spells here are a joke. Basically - three spells. Three spells you will be seeing all over the place.
Why?
All 6 players can blind-pick the same champion. Let me repeat that. ALL 6 PLAYERS CAN PICK THE SAME CHAMPION. Which basically means, all 6 players will be playing the most overpowered free-week hero. I'm using singular, because there's like 10 different heroes in total. Yep, 10 heroes. 10*3=30 different abilities in the game. League of Legends has 116*4=454 abilities, while Dota has even more.
The game is incredibly shallow, absolutely no complexity. You probably already mastered the game while reading the review. I would understand it might suit to a six year old, but I wouldn't give it to a six year old because that would be called "child's brain damaging" and you might go to jail.
Combine this "masterpice" with overpriced itemshop in which you won't find anything worth buying for even if they gave you a hundred grand for every purchase, the fact that you can't report players and (if I'm not mistaken) no leaving penalty - you get the worst MOBA of all time.
Seriously, don't even bother to install. Get Dota or League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth or Awesomenauts. About ANYTHING is better than this crap. Hell, go read a book, at least there you won't find two of your only teammates sitting afk for 7 minutes.
