Parable: Hero Academy Review

The rules of chess are somewhat simple. They’re not overly complex, so virtually anyone can pick it up and play without much trouble. The satisfaction for those who want complexity comes from the strategies that can be employed. It’s a game where acting on instinct can be dangerous, where careful thinking is needed to truly appreciate and enjoy it. Robot Entertainment’s latest title, Hero Academy, is unlike chess in this sense. It fits within the strategy game genre, but it feels like a lost child not sure where it’s supposed to be. It’s a strange move to make a strategy game that lacks any proper strategic thinking to play, so naturally it’s a bit hard to really define it. The closest you’ll probably end up getting to a definition for it is “battle arena board game”. Even with this minor issue of genre confusion, Hero Academy still tries its best to offer something, even if its iOS roots tend to have a habit of tripping it up. (Hero Academy, PC) 5.5/10
