I Like:

+ 8 characters
+ over 120 items
+ over 70 different enemys + elite versions
+ coop mode
+ hardcore mode
+ nice 16-bit setting
+ good control
+ gamepad support
+ low hardware requirement

dont Like:
- cant shoot diagonal
- sometimes confusing (many shots and enemys)

In Hero Siege there is no deep, meaningful story.
Hero Siege takes your average dungeon crawler RPG, sets it up to have monsters attack in waves.
adds randomly generated dungeons and large arenas full of traps and treasures that shift around each wave.
You have potions with random effects, weapons with unique properties to augment your normal attacks, and sometimes statues appear that can alter your base stats.

Hero Siege is a kind of twin stick arena shooter were you can pick from 1 of 7 character classes each with 4 different special attacks based on that class.
Each level is randomly. the enemies will come from the same place.
However there are 4 acts each with a few levels. Each level has 5 waves before the boss spawns.
There are potions that you can get that will randomly change your stats. Do you risk it possibly lowering your speed or attack or increase it?
The characters are a nice, you've got pyromaniac, necromancer, viking, pirate, marksmen, nomad and Samurai.
The pirate can get allot more gold or summon minnions with the necromancer. Each character feels unique.
After a level up you get 2 points into either Damage, Attack Speed, Defense or Health.
Monster tactics tend to be limited to rushing at you head on while occasionally firing off an odd projectile or spell. For the most part, holding down the fire key in one direction . this is all the strategy you’ll need in order to kill the enemy.
Diablo 2 with a infusion of roguelike elements.

great hack n slash game. nice graphics and sound. dont waste your time and play this game!

The game gives you a wide variety of characters which with their own abilities, a simplistic two currency system, and numerous areas that you can explore and conquer. I recommend that you give this game a try!

I loved Diablo and I see a lot of comparisons made between the two which can only be a good thing in my opinion. This is a very fun, just one more go, rogue-like. As others have said, you can't shoot diagonally, but once you get used to this, it is not a deal breaker for me.

There are some bugs still, but then a lot of games have them even years after release. The main problem at the time of writing this is that the achievements for completing acts aren't unlocking but a fix is on the way apparently. I've also had dungeons spawn on top of me trapping me in the wall until the mobs killed me. A little frustrating but no big deal.

No. No. No. No.

I have already read a dozen reviews comparing this game to Binding of Isaac and I am finally sick of it. The only thing they have in common are roguelite elements, a top down view, and nondescriptive items.

For the love of god don't buy this due to any Isaac desire. Don't buy it period. Other reviewers have already said why this is a bad game. I'll let you read their reasoning. Good day.

No actually, I am going to say my piece by listing the things that made me stop playing this game.

Sluggish movement speed, unsatisfying stat increases, infuriating instant kills, general buggyness, unappealing voicework, cluttered and unclear graphics, dull enemies, and a ridiculously padded list of achievments that has been artificially inflated by copying the same tasks ten times over for each class.

Avoid. Play some more Binding of Isaac. Buy Rebirth. You'll have a hell of a lot more fun.

For a game as cheap as Hero Siege, it is a hell of a great game, I would easly pay $20 or more for this title, one of my favorite games in my Steam Library for sure.

This game is a lot of fun but the bugs are the worst kinds.

Diffculties don't unlock correctly, wasting hours of playtime.
Save ruining game crashes, again wasting hours of playtime.
Classes that have broken talents, making them 100% unplayable.
Even after a scaling and damage re-tweek there are still some extremely unbalanced bosses and attacks, leading to rare but super frustrating deaths that you could not avoid.

All of these things have happened to me multiple times.

The Devs are working on patches but honestly each new patch introduces more problems than the last or just fails to fix what it set out to fix!

Unless you are ready for a frustrating (in a good way) game with frustrating (in a horrible unacceptable way) bugs, stay away.

Being a fast-paced run, dodge and hit-game, Hero Siege does almost anything right it has to. I picked it up a while ago and thought I'd really have to look into it. That was an awesome decision! The game is pure fun! You create your character and start killing monsters. Leveling up unlocks various skills to upgrade your character and you can find some pretty nice weapons and trinkets. The game is always fair, you always know what you are up against or why you just died with the controls being very simple. All this together makes for an awesome amound of fun and the "This time I'm gonan get one level further" works pretty well.

8/10 easily achieved!

An addictive rogue-like experience. With multiple classes, stat leveling, and skill trees this game can be played in so many ways and is very addictive. Single player by itself is a joy and the multiplayer is in early access and once it's complete it will make the game that much more addictive. The way the dungeons, crypts, statues, and relics play into the game is also incredible. I highly recommend this game.

At first I attempted to play it on my laptop which always ended up in a windowed screen which I did not like at all. I did finally install the game onto my gaming pc and it plays perfectly and full screen now. It is a very fun game, with many different characters to play. Reminds me of Rogue Legacy, if you die you go back to the beginning but do not lose your levels. I recommend playing it with a controller though, easier to use. Multiplayer is still in beta at this time, but I am being patient and looking forward to it being completed.

The only thing terrible about this game is the voice acting.

This game may hold you close with that nostalgia feeling of a retro game that kills you over and over again, forcing you to start all over. Don't deny it, though. You're willing to throw down another half hour, for another attempt at killing that first boss that you've only gotten through twice, only to be killed by a wave in the next zone minutes later.

This game is fun, classes are unique, the idea is simple, and it has multplayer. Give it a go!

This game is what you get when you cross Binding of Isaac with an arcade or Amiga game from the early 90's!

You get a ton of upgradable attributes for each character so it makes you want to try out everything and it's worth it!

At first I had a hard time figuring out what was going on (a tutorial would be a nice addition), but once I did it was smooth sailing, blasting, sword slashing, etc.

Hero Siege was a little ruff and buggy when I started playing it, but now it's gotten A LOT BETTER!

I think it is more fair to those just starting to upgrade their characters, before the many updates I died A LOT!

Fun little game that only sucks your free time away! Now I'm off to buy the DLC!

The game is still in the development stage. And with every patch there are more bugs.
The game is used to be fun at some point, but now it's very difficult to play and have fun.
So I don't recommend buying this game, at least now. Probably in a year or a half it will become a great game, but now it's total garbage.

You know you have come across a good rouge-like when you die and automatically want to play again. This is a very challenging game especially in the mid and later levels. The sheer amount of things on the screen to deal with is crazy. Better have your twitch skills ready when you boot this one up.

This is a really good game. But the local multiplayer crashes alot. If you play single player and choose the 2 player option you can play with someone on one system, also you can hook up a ps3 controller using the charger cable and one can play with it while the other uses the keyboard.

"This game is more aggrivating then fun. Playing 1+ hours and everything kills me in 1 hit. Traps, enemy dies and release special, everything just boom you are dead. I have it on EASY. This game isn't fun.
Not only that, I have tried 4 calsses same thing with all. Then every time I get far in like wave 15+, the game crashes and I get a bug report. Everytime!!!!"


This was my initial thoughts on the game but as I played and level'd the Necromancer up he became very OP and I am at Act 4 now I do believe. I am come to enjoy the game and become addicted after 8 hours of playing haha. Take time to level up a character or a few till you find the one you enjoy and get the skills just right before you give up like I almost did. A very enjoyable game now. Just was hard to get into at first.
