Hi, Bravelanders!

Our friends helped us make Polish and Portuguese localization! Just give it a try and write to us if everything is ok or not. We've tested both languages, but there can be some typos. :)

I really enjoyed this little gem. It has a very simple concept and basic gameplay that is easy to master. It's also a game that is very easy to get all the achievements in fairly quickly. There are a few flaws but overall its a very decent game. It's also done in a cute cartoonish style which I highly enjoyed with very pleasant music. Overall, I say, pick this up and give it a whirl.

Pros:
-Simple
-Easy achievements
-Nice art style
-Fitting music
-Good game flow
-Nice storyline
-RPG elements mixed with RTS

Cons:
-Healer is restricted to only 2 heals per "battle"
-Can't split up your units (i.e. all archers a clumped together)

Mehs:
-Felt a little short but still worth its price

Rating: 9.7/10

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.

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.

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!

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.
