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.

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 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

If you are looking for a simple yet enjoyable turn based strategy game that can be finished in a few hours, this one is not a bad choice.
With a 75% off steam coupon or when on offer for 1.24€ its well worth it.

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.

The one word description would be: meh.

If the developers wish to change this there is one key change they could make: add cover. Ranged units pretty much just stand at the back of the map getting killed by fireballs and arrows. Pretty useless.
Another thing they should probably add is replay value (4h to finish base game)

It's simple, the graphics are nice and friendly, the dialogue is silly but not bad.

I like this game, and it pains me to have to say I do no recommend it. A future update or even DLC could change that.

I was a guard, until I got an arrow to the knee...

The story plot is well done and fits the game-play and time it was set well. Your village was robbed by A LOT of bandits, wolves and daedric kings. You go out for revenge... Along the way you meet peasants, archers, healers, and other troops to make a really large army and save the village. This game uses Turn-Based combat, which I never always like, but this triggers a lot of nostaligic memory's... I had heaps of fun with this game, and although you might not have as much fun, I'm sure you'll still enjoy it. For a mobile game, it hits all the right buttons inside my head. The only thing I can't commend it on is the repetitive music, which gets annoying after 12 hours. It plays 2 songs throughout the WHOLE game. The game is only 5 hours long, so it might not bug you as much, but it drove me nuts. This game is great other then that and you can just turn the music off and play your favourite music instead, so that was very minor. If you buy this game, enjoy the old school experience and smooth animated graphics! My final verdict is that you buy this game

Game is mix of turn-based strategy game (like HOMAM) and role-playing game elements (items form hero, new spells) to create a unique and addictive formula of 2D strategy roll over game.

Game provides a few different levels of difficulty ... I try it on hard (as always) and for this level game can be a little harder. I always got a lot of money for important stuff (like army, no items (only free stuff) ... items I buy later in game) and the difficulty of enemies also can be a little harder for the "hardest" level that game provides.

This is a one afternoon game (on hardest difficulty, better to say 3 hours game). But still enjoying and playful and also reminds me about HOMAM III (HD I see like week ago).

I also run it on easy difficulty, and with this settings game was easy for 1 hour play. This time I got a plenty of money and buy full stuff of any stuff (even artefacts).

+ game type
+ 2D turn-based strategy game
+ RPG elements

Braveland is a simple mobile strategy game that was ported to PC. For the price, this game is a winner! Overall, the turn-based battles are the classic type of battles that games like “Heroes of Might & Magic” uses. It follows a linear campaign where the main character is a poor farmer who sets out to find the evil king and gets revenge for losing his village and family.

In addition, to the campaign mode, Braveland also has a survivor mode. Survivor mode provides a more challenging battle environment than the campaign mode. Also, survivor mode places healing and combat limitations on certain units so the battles get tricky as additional thinking is required to survive to the next battle.

In conclusion, Braveland is nothing of a surprise, but it a good game to both beginners of turned-based strategy games and to veterans as well. Although it does lack replay value, the simple and easy gameplay is family friendly and it provides a few hours of quick enjoyable moments.

Braveland is a really fun, light, turn-based strategy game. Althought this game might be simpler than other games in the genre thoughtful tactics are still very important. The game isn't too difficult as long as your cautious about how you move your squad around the playing field. Braveland is gorgeous, the color palette is absolutely beautiful. On top of that the characters are all quite cute and funny looking. Combine the laid-back gameplay with the catchy tunes and you have yourself a very enjoyable, relaxing, game!

Easy to learn and get into.
Matches are short and fast. Game a bit short overall.
Good for casuals.
Great buy if it is on SALE otherwise very pricey.

A simple and short HOMM3 like game. Like the second game, if it was expanded with more troups, enemies, skills. etc. It would be a great game.

This is my review for Braveland ; (6.5/10)

Storyline: The storyline is dull and unintresting (atleast for me) it's one of those turn-based basic games, where it's focused on the combat and character elements rather than on the levels of story.
You get to move along the map while meeting friendlies/enemies and having this typicall "chat bubbles". I just skip those lol. (2/10)

Gameplay: Unlike the aspect of the story, the gameplay itself is enjoyable for a turn-based strategy game. (8/10)

1- Character Elements -
@You can view each character's information which include: health, damage, defence , range of movement and number of turns. There is also a description of character abilities and what it's capable of (stunning/magic damage/healing etc)
@Level System: You level up by getting exp (obviously) by defeating and winning enemies.
@Main Character: You buy more units or upgrades with the coins you get, you can't upgrade your units and however, you cannot fight with your main character (you only fight with your 'squad' aka your units)

2- Combat-
The combat is fun and easy. You get tips in the start of the game to understand the basics, and then you will just get used to the combat and know what to do.
There are some points however, where you will have to move forward and fight weaker enemies instead of trying to beat an overwhelming enemy squad because your squad is not strong enough (which makes the game challenging.)

Gameplay Styles: (5/10)
3 Difficulties (Set to Easy/Normal/Hard)
Easy is too easy , Normal is challenging enough and Hard oh well, it's for those of you who want to hit your head in the computer in order to win each match even if you have for example 5 units and your enemies have 500.

Enjoyment: the game is fun for a regular and basic turn based game, I recommend it (it's not have so many
hours of gameplay either so it's just for fun for your free time) - (4/5)

Repeatable: Didn't finish the game yet, but it's one of those turn-based games which the difficulty is the only thing that will change your gameplay. (1.5/5)

Frustration: Except for extremely unexpected challenging enemies (bosses with 300 health and 2 units of it) the game is fluent and you will feel like a god playing with your super talented squad. - (2/5)

Boredom: You will play this game for few hours without breaks. (1/5)

It's a simple game, lasting about three hours and still getting repetitive at the end, but the core gameplay is pretty solid. It borrows very heavily from the King's Bounty series, but doesn't do anything better, different or meaningfully cheaper from it, so while it's not a bad game it is hard to justify buying.

This is a Heroes of Might and Magic rip off (Hell, even the music in the trailer is one of the HOMM3 battle tracks). The battles are okay, but there is no exploration. There is a straight, almost-linear storyline filled with simple, childish dialogues that try to pass as humour.

My biggest complain is the length. Damn, see my hours on record? It's the time it took me to finish the whole thing without skipping any dialogue or side-battles, and I also played several times on the other "arcade battle" game mode, which doesn't have much to offer either.

The game also prompts you to buy the sequel, which I guess will be another 3-4 hour campaign. Meh.

All in all: I've played online flash games that are deeper than this. The gameplay itself is okay, but the game is really not worth it. You can say its low prize compensates for the lack of features, but you can also get a Heroes of Might and Magic OR King's Bounty game for similar prizes, especially during sales, and they're 20 times more replayable and deep than this.

Skip this game, it has absolutely nothing to offer.

I was really much into it from the very beginning. I am usually not the very big fan of turn-based strategies, RPG's but this one really worth a try.

In general, the animations are smooth, sound effects are all just fine and gameplay is really one-mouse click simple. Surprisingly the very simple mechanics really does work in this game.

Of course, there is not much of the story, I mean mostly whenever you encounter an enemy there will be some dialogue to read, but from my own experience after 5 battles I stopped reading them and just went from battle to battle while finishing additional quests and buying every supply which is better than the previous one. The battles are mostly not challenging at all on Medium difficulty, so I recommend to play campaign on a Hard (also it will give you the most important achievement to hunt 100% achievements for this game, so if you don't want to replay the game later, because technically, this game has no value to play it again, you better do it on hard from the very start.)

Whoever, by myself I loved this game. It is simple, it has fun to offer and this game is just perfect time skipper. :)
