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.

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 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

A very fun relaxing game that I totally lost track of time in, then it was over and put me in a good mood afterwards. Not very difficult even on hard.

Cute little turn based tactical game. Fairly basic tactics and quite repetetive but it's fairly brief and it warranted getting to the end. There's a little scope for varying your army build, you basically get 15 points with each unit type being worth from 1 to 5, and there being 7 units to choose from once you've unlocked them all. Over the course of the game as you level up you can purchase extra forces, and basic items that improve your skills. Again this is very simplified and you may as well just buy the most expensive (i.e. best) stuff. I found the heaviest tank unit to be woefully underpowered compared to the crossbow unit, especially with the power up triple shot action that the crossbow guys have, and the tank is also very slow, and can be tricky to position to get the best from his power up skill of attacking all surrounding hexes.

I'm pointing out what could be considered flaws here but I did enjoy playing it, and it was never intended to be a heavy thinking game anyway. The quick battles are neat and the constant stream of new stuff being just a few minutes away keeps you interested. This is a casual, easy playing game that you could easily beat over the course of a week on your lunch break.
