Repetitive and frustratingly unrewarding. As a mathematician and game programmer, I tried for hours to understand how this game's maths work. This was all in vain: 100% chance to throw sand, yet does nothing more than half the time; 40 dmg somehow becomes 300 damage (with no crit). The value of attack speed is never explained and makes no sense (it's not attacks per second, nor attacks per 1/10th of second). Considering that levelling and talenting your character tends to make little difference in the game due to artifacts being so powerful in comparison, this makes it very hard to enjoy the game or customize/optimize characters to your liking.
There's also a large amount of easy-to-fix bugs which make the game even more frustrating, such as dungeons or crypts spawning at the same time a boss does, leaving you no way of accessing it (not exactly pleasing when it happens twice and you have gotten no crypts or dungeons for the past 30 mins or so), particles getting stuck on the map, arrow indicator pointing to non-existent mobs, boss spawning with entire waves, and the worst of all, save files getting corrupt.
The game also only gives you 6 character slots, meaning you can't even get all of the achievements without deleting at least 4 characters (5 classes + optional hardcore mode = 10 characters).
Glad I got this off a cheap bundle. Not worth the price on Steam.

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.

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 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.

I got this game from a bundle, and I would say this is the best deal I've ever had. I pretty much enjoy the process of killing monsters coming by waves, dodging whatever that would kill me and upgrading; even though I died for so many times at the beginning, I will, however, play it over and over again. The whole game is really simple but skillful, with a balanced difficulty and high entertaining enjoyment.

Fantastic classic heroe Adventure Game. If you see this game in a cheap bundle below 5$, buy it.

Hero Siege
[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.
