Players will need all the upgrades they can get while the original Dash Quest was a nonetheless fun game to play, its difficulty never truly overcame its mobile origins. Menas Dash Quest only occasionally bordered on difficult, and most game overs didn’t result from a lack of skill on the part of the player, but simply because certain bosses and enemies were artificially overpowered in a way designed to prevent players from continuing through the game. Heroes, however, tweaks that difficulty formula, eliminates the level-gate enemies, and transforms the game into something enjoyable challenging.
Unlike its predecessor, Heroes’ enemy character even level up as the player levels up. Which means that you won’t need to worry about slogging through early levels after every game over and you’ll get to test your skill with more difficult enemies.
You will need to focus more on combining offensive and defensive gameplay while actually paying attention to youe magic consumption rather than simply bruteforcing your way by purchasing a particularly powerful weapon. On that subject of purchasing power, it should be mentioned that Heroes fixes the original’s overabundance of loot drops. In Heroes, players can earn gold by watching short 30-second ads, by waiting for lootbox refreshes every few hours or so, or, of course, spending real-world money on in-game currency. However, the game remains an oft-rewarding experience for players looking for those who choose to invest time, sweat and effort rather than real money.Ultimately, Heroes is yet another enjoyable smartphone entry from a Canadian studio leaving their mark on the cell phone game market.
