Game Maker is a tool, and like any tool, you can use it well to create fantastic things, and you can use it poorly and make utter trainwrecks. The fact that I'm explaining this means you probably know what side of the line Hero Siege falls on.

Hero Siege wants to be Diablo, on a basic level. It wants this BADLY. It breaks itself into 'acts' (with a new, fifth one in DLC form!), it has a bunch of classes with skill trees of their own, it involves semi-random world generation, and loot plays in heavily, with a smattering of crafting. Heck, it comes as close to ripping off the Diablo font as one can without a C&D being involved (if it's not actually just stolen outright - I haven't compared directly). The big problem is that the game's everything is a muddled, broken husk.

The gameplay isn't mouse-based, and in fact, the mouse barely functions in the game. It's more like a twin-stick shooter, except you only have the four cardinal directions to work with (you can combine them to move diagonally, but if you can fire diagonally in any way, I didn't get it to work). Random 'traps' appear on the ground and around the world, and this is problem number one: the art doesn't convey things well. Things which appeared to be scenery would suddenly spit out a bullet and BAM, half my life gone. Even worse: bullets don't appear as the top layer of graphics, meaning they might hide behind other objects and suddenly go right through you. Instead of exploration being key, you're mostly in arenas which spawn enemies in waves. Sometimes you spend gold on items between, or level up with an incredibly pedestrian character skills tree here and there. (Fun fact about the level up screen: tooltips do not always work, so have fun figuring out if something is a trap or not!)

To top it all off, this week there was DLC released for the game, which adds multiplayer. "Early Access" multiplayer, according to the in-game menus, but really the entire DLC is half-baked: for most of us, it doesn't work. At all. You can purchase it but if it doesn't allow you to unlock anything? Well, according to the devs, that's Steam's fault. It totally happened to a dev's copy of Indie Game the Movie, so that means they didn't code things poorly, you guys. (This is an actual excuse.) You don't want it, just like you don't want this game, but I really figured the technical problems were best summarized by that. Or the fact that options don't save/kick in unless you visit their screen, in which case it remembers "Oh yeah, you turned the volume down" or "Oh yeah, I'm set to Windowed mode!" and suddenly picks up on the thing that it saved to a file it refuses to load on boot? Also be careful dying if you're playing with keyboard! The mouse cursor can vanish (read: stop working entirely) on the death screen, making you force-quit the game to reload.

I know I'm a harsh grader sometimes, but this is an honest plea from me to you: Hero Siege is a bad game made by people who are, at best, first-time developers way in over their heads. Please do not buy or support this title. It has been in enough bundles I've given out around 3-5 keys on my own now, if you MUST play it, wait for another deal of that sort. It's very bad, and not in a funny "it's better with friends" way. (Remember: online multiplayer is a DLC-only feature, so you're getting overcharged to screw around with pals who aren't at your place.) Everything it attempts is done better by another game, and most of those are just as cheap or entirely free.

I want to reccomend this game, I really do, but it's so damn glitchy and the developers don't seem to really take any interest in what actually needs to be fixed about it. In terms of enjoyability when playing however, the game is generally very fun.

There are many pros to the game: it's quite simple, and not too bad despite being a phone port. The levelling system is great as it lets you manage your character as you want, and enables you to choose your system; whichever class you use, you can still find a character that suits you. It's very similar, as many people have said, to games such as The Binding of Isaac; and unlike that, it offers great controller support (even for Mac users). In this sense it's really enjoyable: a standard stab / magic smother everything in sight with RPG elements, and a bit of stealth in terms of the trapping system which allows you to weaken some of the bigger enemies before they reach you. Even the voice acting which is terrible fits the game well; it fits the game in a weirdly brilliant way.

However, as stated, the developers don't really seem to care about the problems that need addressing. Despite saying that they are now focusing on this rather than the phone version it is ported from, they focus on adding things which aren't yet necessarily needed rather than fixing the issues with the game. Many people have complained about the game crashing, and also the achievement system simply doesn't work despite having so many to unlock. Yet they're looking at adding new classes, and are adding more sounds. This simply doesn't make sense: things that aren't broken don't need fixing.

As well as this, based on personal preference, this is something all female players will understand: I am a little disappointed with the character choice in the sense that I can only play as a man. I know many people will whine about this complaint because women shouldn't want to play as women, but I feel if I can have the choice to play as several different classes, I don't understand why I can't play as a woman. Yes, I can change my characters hair to appear feminine; but the fact is they can add new classes but not let me play as my own gender. A lot of games do this, but I am a bit more disappointed by it here when there is so much choice otherwise.

Hopefully in the future the developers will fix the issues: this is a really fun game, and I really want to reccomend it; I'm just disappointed by the things that seem to be ignored.

Was nearly to the point of giving up on this game; Crappy graphics, can't shoot diagonally and hard as hell . . . once you start. 3 or 4 hours in, my chosen character was leveled and I started getting further in waves. Now I’m hooked. Eventually gonna level up at least half of the 8 characters because it’s just plain fun. Highly recommended at full price.

Most of my games bore me after 20 minutes of playing and they never get touched again. Not Hero Siege. It’s good action and controller friendly.

Spending $5 (sale) on this wasn't a terrible decision, but it could've been put to better use.

Pros:
Easy to pick up
You can level up and get new skills that do things like stun or summon minions
Bosses are good and reasonable, their AoE attacks are flashy but fair. Surprisingly, ones with ranged immunity are also reasonable, even if you're playing a purely-ranged class due to how common traps are.

Cons:
Simple and repetitive gameplay - Walk away from hordes of monsters while attacking them with sword/bow/magic/whatever, while also using skills whenever their cooldowns run out. This gets mixed up at times due to enemies with unique attacks ('maggot' enemies can poison a small area so it damages you if you walk on it), and the fact that melee classes involve a bit more skill since you have to be close to enemies, but it's not enough.
Some skills are bugged or awkward to use - My Viking has a Stun skill that you have to stop walking away from an enemy to hit them with instead of walk-away-while-hitting which melee classes should be doing and a 'charge' skill that makes him run in a seemingly random direction (usually towards an enemy at least).
You will die in one hit to an arbitrarily high-damage projectile or trap while enemies normally only do about a tenth of your health in damage. It will be unexpected and stupid.
Getting the right beneficial potions, which randomly drop, will make you win too easily
A few potions will suddenly KILL YOU INSTANTLY when you have half health. Especially annoying because I've also wasted tons of full-healing potions because I don't want to die to a negative one.
Devil Statues. Another terrible mechanic. They don't give you some kind of upside-and-drawback like 'evil' themed mechanics should, they can just PERMANENTLY lower one of your stats by 2, basically making you a level-5 character that levels up as slowly as a level-6 character, and so on for the rest of the game. Might as well just abandon that character to quickly level a different one up to 5.

One of the Best Rogue-Like Games I have played hope to see more dlc and content to be added everytime. Its ridiculous how many things are in this game that are easter eggs infact id almost go as far as to say it is just one big endless easter egg. Before i bought the game i was kinda sad thinking it would just be a Binding of Isaac knock off which isnt bad but kind of disappointing in the mind of a game not reaching a fully reachable idea or feel making it cling to another game. But needless to say i was quite wrong it gave me its own feeling of endless waves and fun. Granted it is acceptionally hard but i think there are some minor things wrong with the game so im not going to knock off any recommendation of the game just a small thing like a mini map would be nice to see. Otherwise id give it a solid 9/10

I've played this game in ANDROID, and now in the PC just got better!
This game is very addictive and hard.
You choose a character and must defeat waves of monsters, after a few waves of creatures you face bosses!
Each character has its advantages and disadvantages, as well as their own weapons / spells.
It has a good amount of different monsters to confront, and collect money to buy potions and stuff. And of course also has the relics that can give you an optimal help in your battle.
This game is very simple, but very fun.
