Small cartoonized game based on hard soil of "King's Bounty" and "Heroes of Might and Magic" and originally made for smartphones.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

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.

For a phone flash style team tactics rpg, it's not bad. Enjoyable if you're looking for a light game.

Well, it's a simple mobile port turn based hex grid strategy rpg game (wow). It's not bad, it's not great either... do not expect much and you could find yourself having some fun. For a low price (I got it on a bundle), it's a very pleasant surprise and was nice to kill some time at work playing it (don't tell anybody). Solid little game.

Recommended at a discount

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 simple version of Heroes of Might and Magic for the casual player, this is a good game make no mistake here, hardcore players may feel the lack of depth but for most people it should be a really nice adventure with good gameplay, art style and a simple yet short campaign.

Braveland is a turn-based strategy game which mixes the style of casual mobile and traditional tb strategy games.

Good:
Nice graphics and music. Enjoyable battles and progression. Traditional units with a little bit of a unique approach. Some good improvements to previous titles.

Bad:
Pretty much straightforward gameplay: battles cannot be replayed, grinding is not present, not enough choices. Tactical combat is not deep enough.

Overall, I recommend Braveland to anyone who wants to play a strategy game which can be played in small bursts. There is not much complexity in this game, but it definitely has a few enjoyable moments.

My Opinion:
OVERALL: 7/10
Graphics: 8/10
Gameplay: 7/10
Sound: 7/10
Replay Value: 6/10

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 strategy, turn-by-turn RPG game, with alot of ressemblence to the Heroes of Might & Magic series style of combat. You can cast global spells via your rage, you can recruit units in towns, you can fight obviously and you can cast spells via your heroes. You also have advanced commands like wait and defend, etc...

The gameplay is good! The hard mode is quite challenging and I think it can only be done only with alot of strategic thoughts and taking care while spending your gold. The music is good, but it's extremely repetitive. The graphics are O.K and the animations are fairly good.

The game only takes around 4 hours to beat in hard mode with 100% achievements completed. Then again, it's only $5 USD so it's pretty fair! By the way, this game is an iOS port but I did not noitice at all while playing, good job to the devs!

The story was pretty mediocre in my opinion, not enough dialogues and a really standard story. I think the reason i've liked the game is because it really remembers me of my early gaming in strategy games.

I will recommend this game to anybody who hasn't played a strategy turn-by-turn game since a few years, but honestly this is far from being my favorite game, it's just a fun little game that doesn't take long to complete and is pretty enjoyable.

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.

Braveland in short, is a strategy, turn-based game.

Fans of Heroes-Of-Might-&-Magic series will find familiarity in this game.

Think of it as a mini version, with cartoonish graphics, linear plot, slightly witty dialogue and casual gameplay.

Battles can be challenging at higher difficulties, as you have to rack your brains a bit every now and then.

Its a bit short though, and replayability value is pretty low, unless you're planning to get all the achievements.

I do hope there was more customisation and split decisions along the plot, but then again, for the low price, I would say you can't expect much.

Nevertheless, still a decent casual game, I would say 6.5/10

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.

Time Played: 5 hours
100% Achievements

Braveland is turn based strategy with similarities to the Heroes of Might and Magic series. While somewhat simplistic for the genre, it still presents solid gameplay and tactical decision making. The game is set on a fairly linear path with the entire game being completed in under 5 hours.

Pros:
-Cartoony artwork
-Fun gameplay

Cons:
-Felt optimized for touchscreen (port?)
-Upgrades were somewhat simplistic
-Short game

Final Verdict:
Get it on sale

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.

Not much depth into the game, and fairly simple. But for the price if you are looking for a hours of time killing its worth picking up.

If you have ever played "Heroes" any game in the series, you feel right at home here. The combat is pretty much the same. You move your troops around, cast spells do buff your soldiers or harm the enemies.

Theres also a Surival mode, which I havent tried. And I guess it will give a few more hours into the game?

Ohterwise then that, polished game. Nohting special, but fun few hours of gameplay.
