Overview

Hero Mages is a turn-based tactical strategy fantasy game that combines the fun of role playing games (RPGs) with competitive and cooperative cross-platform multiplayer gameplay. Designed and developed by a single individual driven to share his passion for gaming with the world, Hero Mages also blends the best elements of tabletop miniature and collectible card games.

Hero Mages is played from a top-down perspective allowing the player full visibility over the battlefield. Each player commands a party of three fantasy heroes, including a powerful mage. Equipped with a set of dice and a hand of cards representing magical spells, players take turns commanding their party of heroes. With the power to unleash the wrath of the elements, summon heinous creatures, and manipulate the world itself, the player's mage is their ultimate hero as they leverage skill, politics, and luck to eliminate their enemies and emerge victorious!

    Drooling level of awesomeness

    I have only played this for about 15 but I know this is going to be taking up a ton of my time. The nook market is lacking for these deep tactical strategy games and i am so happy to see more of them coming in. The multiplayer options are going to give this game tons of life after i eventually figure out how to roll over the AI.

    Very fun tactical board game. I enjoyed the animated dice rolling- gave the game a nice board game flavor. Use of cards for spells gave some strategic depth to thr game. One has to balance card discard abilities, mana points, and usefullness of spells. Very enjoyable and highly recommended.

    The Nook Color's screen wasn't responsive to my touch. I had to tap it several times. Yet, the game itself is pretty fun. Just change the setting to infinite, so it won't get timed out when making choices.

    Awesome game!

    A very fun strategy board game with old school Hero Quest feel mixed with new school Shining Force mechanics and random spell cards too! A must have game! Just wish there were more chars to choose and it needs a story mode. A++@

    Don't waste your time.

    This would be a great game accept for one fatal flaw, the random dice generator is screwed up. It appears not to be random at all. The computer AI rolls a plethera of hits while the player dice rolls hits few and far between. This makes the game excessivly difficult to even complete the tuturial. If you want a game to fill your day with frustration and rage, than this is the game for you. If you are looking for a challenging stradagy game, look elsewhere.

    Extremely addicting

    This game is great for fans of board games and strategy-based play. Definitely go through the easy-to-follow tutorial before paying, though.

    You should make it so that people can play with more hero mages cause I want to be a summoner. Otherwise the game's pretty great!
