Hero Siege is like Diablo stripped to its core, with some The Binding of Isaac-like rogue elements added as spices. It's a top-down action hack 'n slash with 16-bit graphics, to be played as one of seven distinct characters, each with their own abilities and skills. During one's walk around the arena, there's gold and (some) loot to be picked up, there are (many) monsters to be slain, and every six levels, a boss (some amazingly easy, some excruciatingly difficult) awaits you. Levels and enemies are random-generated from a relatively large numer of possibilities, which guarentees a lot of differentiation. There are - very Diablo-like.. - several chapters, each chapter having 30 (!!) levels. So far, so good: the idea is sound, the graphics are fun, and the gameplay - if using an Xbox 360-like controller - has something very addictive to it.

But Hero Siege also has its share of problems. The "rpg-light"-like leveling system, with stats- and skill-points to be distributed as one levels up, is all too unbalanced. Stats go only up by fractions of percentages, making it fairly useless to upgrade them, except maybe from level 50 or so. Action skills are sometimes VERY powerful after a time, which will be necessary - but some are really over-the-top. Opposed to this, the amount of damage one can get while playing, is completely unpredictable. This is by itself a good thing, but some bullet-firing skulls deal such an amount of damage, that during the first six levels at least, you can die in an instant without even knowing what hit you. The graphics tend to hide these skulls sometimes, and that makes it really frustrating. Though I have to admit, once at a certain level (certainly from 31 upwards), these devils can be survived better. Power-ups, dropped by the bosses, are really essential to survive for a longer time - but since they drop randomly as well, some games are fun because of the great assets they give, others are really disappointing since you didn't get anything worthwhile for a long time.

The good thing is that the developers are still finetuning things, and taking comments from the community into consideration, as far as I can see. That's why I give this game a thumbs-up, even if I've cried out sometimes in frustration when my poor newly-made marksman got out of the blue hit once more by a deadly bullet. What should really be implemented is a better save system: relics (power-ups) tend to get lost once I quit the game, and saving is actually only possible every act (30 levels).

Overall: 6,5/10
This game has potential, is strangely addictive (although the 152 (!!!) Steam achievements seem like impossible to get), but still has serious flaws. Luckily, the developers are still finetuning and working on it.

I Like:
+ random generated levels, dungeons, items etc.
+ 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!

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.

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!

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.
