I couldn't proverbially put it down once I got into it. This simple as hell game sucks you right in with its army-building and weapon upgrading and hero developing and such. Shiny. The gameworld unravels like a scroll and the object is to go right. How simple is that? Go right! No jumping, no hidden switches, no false walls, no rule of three--none of it. Just dumb fun. But seriously. Try it. It's on sale.

+ Interprétation simplifiée de la formule Heroes of Might & Magic
+ Idées et équilibre intéressants
- Qualité visuelle inégale
- Se renouvelle très peu malgré une durée de vie très courte
- Laisse l'impression général d'un jeu incomplet

7/10

Felt somewhat simplistic, on a first "blind" try, but I enjoyed it. Nothing too crazy - feels very much like a tablet game ported over, at least at the beginning.

I enjoy the turn based hero controls creatures strategy games. Have played the varying King's Bounty games to the tune of hundreds of hours amongst others. This is an introductory game to the genre. It's still fun but very short; 3-4 hours to 'win'. For people who've played the genre you'll find it too easy and very linear. I bought it for a couple of bucks knowing it was introductory and it'd likely be easy. I was somewhat hopeful it may offer something unique. It didn't. Overall it was OK. For people looking to see if they'll like this type of game, definitely a good intro to the genre.

Small cartoonized game based on hard soil of "King's Bounty" and "Heroes of Might and Magic" and originally made for smartphones.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!

Very fun short game, and theres apprently a part two, so dont worry about it being THAT short. There isnt any real challenge. Just some good old thinking needed, even then, you could screw up majorly, and still suceed.

Enjoy ^-^

Braveland is a turn based strategy for beginners to the genre. There is a bonus given for losing battles to encourage players to never give up. Healers are more effective as offensive casters. There is all the sheer basics that make up a TBS, but nothing more. If you are a beginner, or you want to introduce your children in to the genre, or you really want a game that is easy to max out achievements on, give it a shot. If you are looking for a solid challenge, you're simply not going to find it here.

Edit: Since my last review, I decided to play it all the way through in all the different modes. Hard mode wasn't much different than normal, but did offer a little more boosted enemy AI. Failure still pays out. Survivor mode was actually a fair challenge. Unit death is real, and you have to buy units between battles. This gets tricky, as they only offer specific units for sale between each battle. This makes healers imperative, but also puts a huge target on their head. The longer you last, the bigger bonus they will give you next time around. Survivor mode also cuts out all role play, which speeds up the game drastically. Even with survivor mode, the game simply isn't as tough as the Heroes of Might & Magic series, which I would recommend to those who found this game too easy.

It's a very fun, short, yet simple game. It's mostly straight forward, pretty much just a good time waster.


You can say it's "friendly". You can spend money the wrong way but still get back to track in just a few more battles. Nice couple hours of fun, and worth the price - especially if you have a discount.

Braveland is a turn based RPG game and in my opinion worth the 5$ because in my mind a game worth 1$/hour and i played 5.6 hours to complete it at 100%. The music is perfect but there is only 1 or 2 of them in loop. I played hard mode whole time at the begining it was really hard losing half my money to repair my armies but when you do upgrade your armies the game get easier and easier.

The graphics are 2D but with cool colors. The story is fine . This game is a one way for the mission because they are in a straigth line.

I would give it a 3.5 out of 5

Sorry if my english was bad and i hope you will enjoy this game

You will buy 4 hours of play with a very casual and the classical turn by turn strategy. The only reason you will finish it is the constant improvements ( call it RPG if you like ) of your hero (wich never directly plays) and the new kind of troops.
Absolutly nothing ( story, mechanics...) is original, it's a pure « okay game », wich is too short, thus my negative rating (also it was in my wishlist, maybe i expected a little too much?).

This game plays like a lite, flash version of games similar to King's Bounty. That being said, you could probably find a free version of this game, because it doesn't offer much in the way of management or paths. There's a few side objectives, but the rest is really linear.

Worth $1 for casual players, not $5 for the rest of us.

Gets glitched when using hero powers and you have to restart the game. Neat idea, but unplayable as of June 2014.

Really easy, even on the hardest setting. I'm an hour into this game and wondering where the main hero is in every battle that I fight. It's like he tells everybody to go fight and he'll be right there. Except he never shows up. Then he comes back with all these cool buffs he found from leveling and not fighting. He's really awesome. I hope he grows some balls soon instead of hiding in the bushes while everybody else fights. Because then he would be the hero Braveland deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

Because then he'd actually be brave...in the land of Braveland.

All that being said, I think implementing an actual cover system with overwatch would easily place this game in the $10 range. Since it's $5 or less on sale, it's worth a look. Here's hoping that these same creative devs can add just a little more spice to an otherwise great game.

Increase difficulty. Main character. Use cover/overwatch. Instant 3 points.

6/10

Braveland is a decent game. It is fresh (at the time of this review, I think it said a month old). It's art is simple and easy to get into. The gameplay is simple, not hard, and can be kind of quick. The story is a bit hard to follow, and I found myself just skipping dialogue. But it wasn't too bad of a game. I'd recommend Braveland to someone who wants a small game to play for fun.

Hope they come out with Book 2 (or more) soon.
