Braveland is a fun little strategy RPG where you play a guy who's village was destroyed and he's out for revenge. You have a overhead map you move around on going from point to point. Each point either has an enemy, friendly, store, or treasure.

You can buy and find or buy gear to increase your attacks, and defenses. You will also earn specials that can be released after being hit so many times. Each special costs a different amount and can be pretty helpful at times. As you progress through the map you will come across friendlies who will join up with you. You'll get help from knights, archers, and healers for example.

When building a team for battles they give you a point system. Each unit stack costs a certain amount and your max points to use is 15. So for example farmers costs 2 points per stack and archers are 3. Then after leveling up your main character you will be allowed to recruit more people per unit stack. This way when you go into battle you would have like 15 farmers per stack, 10 archers per stack, and so on. Enemies may only take some damage or may wipe out a few people from the stack. After each battle you are given exp points and gold. Then if you lost people you get charged a certain amount to revive them.

I played the game on easy considering I have a ton of games to play and really want to clear out some backllog. It has a cool little story and was fun to play. I finished it in about 5 hours. Braveland is definitely worth playing.

This game is bad.
You have no control of anything. Not even the order you characters attack.
there arent any attacks to that have obvious advantages between classes.
There is very little that will change the out come of a match if you play it again.
It all just seems pointless.

I bought this game for around two bucks, and I'd say that's about what it's worth! There's no real story to it apart from, you killed my village, prepare to die. And it is short. Probably three or four hours. But if you like this style of gameplay, it's a fun play.

A "heroes of might and magic-like" extra light.

Pro : It's cheap.
Cons : The gameplay is so shallow that it feels a bit pointless. It took me 4 hours to finish it in hard mode (the last 3 feeling really tedious), and I'm pretty sure I'll never play it again.

Fun & attractive little game. All the key elements of a good turn based strategy are there, although catered to novices.

Clean graphics, quick to get into, tons of battles (although they are quite repetitive). A good amount to like & not much to hate.

Short and relatively easy, but don't let those two things put you off the game. The music goes well with the game and the graphics are decent. The game is also pretty relaxing, it auto-saves after every battle, so if you do somehow lose, you'll only miss a few minutes.

It's a simple turn-based game that involves some tactical thinking when planning on what troops you want to use, but overall it doesn't really matter what people you use unless fighting one of the bosses. Being able to level up is a nice touch, even though you're unable to replay won battles.

Braveland is a casual and fun little turn based strategy game. The plot is nothing original or too interesting, however the game play is fun, albeit a bit short. I'd recommend to start off the game with the hardest mode for more of a challenge. Nevertheless, the quaint music and bright artwork are also great aspects of the game itself. Some of the mechanics can be improved, such as healers being able to heal more than once, and being able to arrange units. Other than that, I did enjoy the game, though I'm not sure if I would recommend it at its full price (I got it on discount myself). It's a great little gem to play with during a reprieve from some more challenging games, or a tiring work week.

It isn't amazing, but by no means is it terrible and not worth recommending. If you know going into this game that you will be playing a casual, simple turn-based strategy game that can be finished around two hours for a cheap price then you will walk away happy.

There's enough polish and overall appeal to keep you progressing through the game.

Bravery not needed
Enjoyable

You have Heroes of Might and Magic and you have this. This is for the casual players. Definitely designed for mobile it is pretty ok on PC. Nice cartoony graphics, ok sound, music not too irritating and fairly polished play. Not very tactical and deep. Just follow the path, and you will have an fairly easy time at normal difficulty if you just play correctly and don't to utterly stupid things.

Just an enjoyable turn-based hex-square tactical(?) mob game.

Funny little game that reminded me of Kings Bounty. It's short (4 hours for me to finish) and there isn't too much variation in units.
Still, it plays pleasantly and the mechanics are quite decent.

All in all I'd recommand it with about a 6 out of 10 mark.

It’s fairly standard fare for a fantasy turn-based strategy game. You make your way across a slowly expanding map with various vistas and nasties to kill. You hire on bigger and badder troops as you fight bigger and badder enemies. You gear up your general, you kill a few bosses, and BAM: the game’s over. Wham, bam, thank you Sam… Wise.

Braveland feels--and looks--a lot like a Facebook game, right down to the fact that there are a limited number of battles on the map, and therefore a limited amount of gold available to you. This means that you have to decide very carefully on what you will spend your gold on: troops, troop abilities, or equipment, and the wrong choice early on can ruin your chances later in the game.

Other than this incredibly annoying fact, there are other, smaller annoyances:
  • Units can only counter-attack the first unit to attack them.
  • You cannot view a numerical value of current health, even though damage is indicated numerically.
  • No matter how much Fury you have, you can only use your Fury once per turn.
  • Enemy units ALWAY target healers, then archers/crossbowmen, then melee units. Going so far as to cross the entire battlefield and surround themselves with melee units to get to them.
  • Healers can only heal twice per battle.
  • The story is the horribly cliche: "Peasant in outlying village sees wrongdoing in the kingdom and embarks on a quest to kill the evil king"
Overall, while the gameplay is sort of fun, and the pricetag is reasonable, I can't really recommend it.

Fun, but very short. Finished it in 3 hours, and I don't feel like there's much replay value. Not very challenging, but a good casual game. There was only a single battle that I couldn't win the first try. The graphics were cute and gameplay was easy to learn. Could be a lot deeper, but fun as it is.

Ah, Braveland. It's hard to know what to say about it. It is not a bad game. I'm tempted to call it good. But I'm not going to do that, and I wouldn't recommend it to people.

At $4.99, Braveland seems reasonably priced. On sale, it might even sound like a steal. But you're going to get a few hours out of it, and there's nothing remarkable about those few hours.

There's nothing really awful about Braveland. The graphics are slightly unnervingly Fisher Price, but they're effective and the backgrounds look nice. There are only a few songs, and they sound competent and appropriate. The interface is fine. The mechanics are... well, balanced and kind of standard for this kind of game.

So what's the problem?

There's not much depth to the battles, and there's not much to it besides battles. You pick up a modest variety of classes, and can bring up to five with you: archers, healers, knights, scouts, etc. Their roles are fairly obvious and they do them well enough. But you can really use whatever combination you want, and the gameplay won't change much at all.

The story is... well, the dialog is spelled and formatted correctly and does tell a pretty straightforward story about soldiers, bandits, villagers and the like. No one really says anything very interesting, but the conversations are short and inoffensive. The most personality you get out of the game is that bandits are dime-a-dozen jerks, and your peasant friend is a bit of a coward. There's a hero, who doesn't actually fight, and annoys me a little to look at him strutting around the world map as though he's helping. Technically he provides stat bonuses to the rest of the team by leveling up, but he mostly just speaks for the team and collects power-ups.

There's no real replay value to the campaign, but there's a Survival mode where you can play battle to battle, losing characters and buying new ones, and see how far you get. I played around with it a little, and it might add a bit of life to the game if you wind up loving it. So, there's a bit of hope for getting more play out of the game at least.

I have played a lot of Flash games in my days, on sites like Newgrounds - RPGs, tower defense, strategy games, action, etc.. Braveland feels very much like one of those games. The look, the feel, the length, the design choices and the options the player is given. Indeed, I feel like I've played Bravelands many times already. Except usually, when I play this kind of game, it's free. Often, it's also got something more novel or fun about it.

Normally, it's probably not good to get lost in the weeds talking about free vs. paid gaming in a review like this. I guess all I'm saying is, Bravelands is a dime a dozen kind of game that you see all over the internet, and even if it's got a bit of polish and isn't awful, it's hard for me to justify anyone spending their money on it. For a few dollars more, there are lots of really unique, memorable games on Steam.

If you just want to blow through some clean and simple RPG battles for a few hours, you probably won't hate this game. If it looks like it might be really awesome, it's not. It's just not. Look at the other reviews. A lot of the positive reviews say that it's short, it's easy, there's not a lot to it, it would be good for kids, etc.. Hardly ringing endorsements. If this game were getting 1 to 10 ratings instead of Yes or No, I don't imagine they'd be all that high. Nobody really loves this game. Everyone just agrees it's okay. If you want an okay game, buy Bravelands.

I'd say it's exactly what you can see on the screenshots.

Not so sure about "old school", feels more like a phone game with the on rails movement, very simple and clean interface, and it's definitely not as deadly as the old school games I remember. Playing on normal, if you walk into something too hard and lose your entire army, you get to keep the army anyway and the poor men collect some gold for you to reinforce so you can try again.

It's entertaining enough for €4, but not much more. I'd say buy it if you're bored, like this type of games and want something new. Not a must have in the game collection by any means.

Cool little turn-based strategy. Something like a mix of Heroes and a fairy tale.
I enjoyed playing it, but unfortunately there are some minor problems.

First of all, the game has absolutely no replay value. 5 hours is enough to beat the game on hard level of difficulty.
After that you don't really need nor want to play it again.

Secondly, there are limited amount of fights, so leveling system is really poorly made. Same with gold, you just can't farm and earn as much coins as you would like. For example, there is achievement to buy all skills for your units. I noticed that achievement just before the last fight with 500 gold on me. Last upgrade costs something like 1500 gold. So i had to sell one of my equipment to achieve it. Pretty stupid, isn't it?

Another problem is with AI. Computer doesn't really know what strategy means. For example it does not protect ranged units and is trying to kill my healer first, even if it would last for ever.

And well, there are not many units available unfortunately. Also absence of Dragons makes me sad :(

Anyway, it is a cheerfull game which will give you fun. The price is not so high also, but i would suggest waiting for a promotion or get it in bundle.

Small cartoonized game based on hard soil of "King's Bounty" and "Heroes of Might and Magic" and originally made for smartphones. Contains easy short linear campaign for wanna-be-knight with "they burned my village" motivation... and sometimes-challenging survival mode.
Is it worth buying? Well, yeah, especially if you get one of those 75-90% discount coupons. Steam cards for this game are quite high, so you have a chance to get more money than you paid. Other good thing for a game collector is simple achievements. With some basic planning and skill you can get all 21 in 1 walkthrough, which takes from you approx. 3 hours.

Overall - not of great value, not a mustbuy, but looks nice, adequately priced, and have some chances to challenge you for a short time. 8/10.

PS: I get it as present from Bear, so I'd like to thank him one more time there! Спасибо!

I wish I could post neutral on this but since I have to choose, I choose nay. But here's the good and bad.

Pros:
-Very simple
-Easy to play
-Provides mild entertainment

Cons:
-Short
-No replay value
-Limited battles, so no farming exp and gold

Fun game, but too short.

I finished the story in 5 hours and in that time I unlocked all the units and bought all the best equipment. The game was simply too short. Its slow at first, but opens up nicely once you unlock all the units, then the game ends shortly after that.
There is no grinding to earn extra gold to get better gear or more units. Its a causal game with almost no replay value.

Overall the sound quality and "cute" art, make up a nice little strategy game. Would probably be great for someone new to the turn based strategy genere, but veterans will find it lacking.

I do recommend this game at a discount price.

If you like Heros of Might & Magic style games - you'll love this short intermission of a game. The first thing I thought of when I played: This would make a nice introductory game for those wanting to get the feel of those TBS games like Age of Wonders, HoM, Kingss Bounty etc.. It is simple, yet keeps you going. The story is just for show, as there is no development. Controls, like the game play, are very linear. Music, although repetitive, is not annoying. Adds just the right amount of ambiance. But sometimes simplicity is the key to a great game. And for $4 - it's a good addition to any startegy lovers library.

Braveland is a turn-based strategylike game. We get a small linear map where you will encounter enemies and you need beat them on a classical, hexagonal battlefield. The village of our hero was robbed so he will try to get back all the resources what required for the survival of the village as winter is coming. Of course, the story dont stop there, our hero find more conspiracy behind that robbery.

This game is not long, could be finished on hard difficulty in 4hours. This game dont gets anything new to the gaming industry, not a revolutinary game. BUT...

I bought it on sale, so was only 1eur+few cents. definetly worth that price, 1/10 value of a movie ticket and twice as long entertainment.

i like to get achievements while playing and this game have some. additionaly, developers of this game are not ♥♥♥♥♥♥, they added achievements what you will get on your playthrough not like in other 4hours games where they add not understandable achievements like play game for 100hours or kill 50k enemies while you will get like 1-2k in one playthrough.

Game is very entertaining. These kind of games could be repetative after a few hours but in this case the game ends before you could have that feeling and while you progressing toward the end there will be something new in each battle: New enemies, new abilites, new troops.

achievements difficulty: 1/10
price-value ratio: 9/10

This isn't a deep RPG with complex strategies and agonizing decisions. What it is, however, is a fantastically fun tactical turn-based gem. A bit more linear, it follows the recipe of titles like Faster Than Light and boils the genre down to it's essence. Fight, improve your team, and take on bigger baddies. Oh yeah, and find or buy a little loot along the way.

After a long day of work when you just want to play and not have to think too hard, this is a great addictive way to kill some hours and destress a little. Highly recommend. For $3.99 US you can't go wrong.

You liked Heroes of Might & Magic? Or perhaps King's Bounty or Age of Wonders? Stripped of all city management, you basically just have the turn-based combat. Braveland takes this and adds a big, friendly smile on every creature.

It presents you a cute, classic storyline: a happy farmer boy loses his family and farm to bandits and sets out on a bold journey for revenge, but it turns out there is something more sinister going on and the happy guy wants to deal with it. He travels around and beats up the bad guys who take the hits with permanent crooked smiles on their faces. At first the dialogue attemps some meme-based humour (arrow in the knee anyone?), but they are quickly discarded for cheerful, repetitive greetings and taunts.

Travelling happens on a board with enemies, stores and events in each tile. It's linear, though you can (and should) check every branching road for bonus items, gold and experience points. Gold gets you more troops and items, experience gives small bonuses to creature stats and increases the cap on troops.

While I only played the hard mode, combats are easy for a player familiar with turn-based strategy games. Combat AI does not offer surprises in neither good nor bad ways, so it's okay. There are only 7 different types of troops to buy and around the same number of different enemies with upgraded versions of the usual ones coming later into the game. Basically all of them also smile all the time.

Why, I even lost one battle! Being vastly out-numbered, my troops collected their pocket money and gave it to me to hire more troops for another try. Happyland would have been a more appropriate name for the game.

In conclusion, Braveland would probably be a nice introduction to turn-based strategy games for children or people not acquainted with the genre. For the rest of us it's just a small snack (it lasted ~4 hours for me) that gets a dusty taste towards the end. Get it on sale.

This is a very easy casual turn based strategy game. If you are new to the genre then this is a game to get you started. If you are looking for something with more gameplay elements or are a veteran of the genre than you should avoid this game at all costs.

The game consists of you moving and attacking enemies on a hex based grid. Some units have special attacks that need to be recharged every so often. After every battle you are awarded gold and xp. Gold is used to buy more units or items that give you a small passive bonus to your defense or attack rating.

Achievements are also really easy and in a couple of hours you can get them all.

Braveland is a very casual TBS. It's a good game to play in half hour intervals. It also provides a solid 5-7 hours of gameplay. I'd say that's a plus for the pricetag.

The game's battle system isn't very deep and it's clearly designed for casual players. Despite this, it manages to throw heavy (yet short-term) consequences for playing badly on hard mode. The game has a small element of resource management wherein the more efficient you play, the more money you get to keep. If for example you play terribly on hard mode, you'll end up earning less gold (you'll have to pay more to replenish your party). The battles are finite so you can see how this can affect you. Luckily there's a way to earn gold in case you mess up. Be warned though that the other method is pretty boring.

I went in expecting a casual experience and that's exactly what I got. The only thing I can really complain about is that window mode was not part of the option menu.

4/5. Not bad!

It's like the King's Bounty games (good) if they were really short and super dumbed down for iOS (less good). I can't say it didn't amuse me, but it's pretty bad, and super short - 3.7 hours to completely beat it with 20/21 achievements (screw To Arms!) and all fights completed, so in the end I can't really recommend it even at the really low $5 asking price.

I guess you can get it if you're hard up for games like King's Bounty and you've already beaten The Legend, Crossworlds, and Warriors of the North, don't want to play (more) Legions, and aren't QUITE hard up enough to play the Ascension to the Throne games or something. But otherwise, skip.
