Hero Academy is a two-player turn-based tactics game. The game is the first release in the series.


In Hero Academy, the player takes turns moving units on board and attacking enemy assemblies. The goal is to be the first to destroy the other player's crystal or to kill all of the other's units.
Each battlefield consists of 9x5 squares; it is a lot like chess: the game is focused on strategy, it requires careful planning before each step. Each player has one or more crystals. Each turn gives five moves in the game. Units are played from a hand which is replaced at the end of each round; it is renewed with new units chosen randomly. Also, a player's hand can contain spells and healing liquids as well as weapons and armor. The leaderboard shows the player's progress, the last battle's scores. Customization includes teams lists, avatars, upgrades, and taunts.

Key features

The game contains six factions also known as Heroic Teams: Council, Dark Elves, Dwarves, The Tribe, Team Fortress 2, Shaolin. Team Fortress 2 and Shaolin are special editions; the first one is made for Steam users (now it is available on other platforms), the second one is for the Chinese players. It is referred to as the success Hero Academy had in China when first released.

Hero Academy reviews and comments

I like this unpretentious little game with lots of characters with very specialized abilities. I only have the demo part but the little I played there makes me want to go further.

Bad! Game that can not get in full screen, to whom you can not change the resolution! The gameplay is empty, without interest! If: can be for 8-10 years! Short end I do not recommend!

BOF, little exciting and very long between each round. In addition the graphics are quite some... In style I recommend you instead to opt for hand of the gods, much more beautiful and much more addictive.

Well this game is a clear case of pay to win. The game is a port from IOS and clearly shows it . You get two free races while the other 4 cost about 4 dollars or such. The game is full of micro transacations for the smallest of things. Want colors? CASH. Want some challenges? CASH. Want more than two teams? CASH. Horrible. The saddest part is I payed for this, shouldnt I have all the dlc from the start? 1/10 Don't buy

Globally a good game. The idea of asynchronous turn based game seduced me at start. The game needs more features to be "well" designed. Since, when i play a game i want to finish. I had lot of games not terminated after weeks on my phone. I played tons of hours on my phone but finally nothing was here to make me continue to play. Having some personnalisation, regulary new races, what ever can maintain the game "new" and enjoyable. After few games you'll start to win a bit and thoose games are the worst : People don't want to lose so some won't terminate this one and invite you on another one till they win...

TL/DR version: unable to connect and email to reset his password is just a nice white page. go your way. normal version: aillant play on mobile and Tablet but less on steam (of or my time ricetically on steam) I had appreciate the rhythm play by mail of the game, moreover each race was unique with its own capacity and more you could have access to the ' ' clan ' Team Fortress 2. It was a good little game without too much head and easy access. Was, because it would seem 2017 it is impossible to connect to the game, and nothing reflected on the official website, on the app page (Google and iTunes) and even less on steam. I thought I was playing bad luck during my connection, and reminded me that steam had its own identification, I was going to reccuperer my account in no time, but no, every time I want to reinitalize my account, the developer site send me a nice email all empty. I have at least the beautiful hats for TF2... It's already that and as a great gentleman of the video games would say: it s better than nothing.
