    Hero Academy is a bit of chess, Words With Friends, and fantasy combat all mixed together.

    It's a ridiculous amount of fun.

    Even if you buy all the teams Hero Academy will barely cost you $15. For that price you get a strategy game you can play indefinitely, and whose tactical elements are deep enough to entrance everyone from the casual gamer to the strategy enthusiast.

    Well-balanced, fun turn-based strategy gameplay perfectly suited to mobile devices.

    If you have an iDevice and even a passing interest in turn-based or tabletop strategy gaming, there is absolutely no reason not to download Hero Academy. Robot Entertainment very well may have put a lock on iOS Game of the Year, and January isn't even over yet.

    Hero Academy is a simple game, and it does what it's built to do very, very well.

    Android version promised. Never delivered. If you do not attend to your examination, you fail the test.

    This is a game that seems too straightforward at first glance, but the hidden depth is enormous. People who stick with this game are typically those who enjoy chess or RTS games. The developer has some serious denial issues about who their game really appeals to. They wouldn't want to hear this, but Hero Academy is a niche game. It'll immensely satisfy people within that niche, but everyone else will pass. Full Review »

    there is no turn time limit so your opponent can just stop playing and the game does not end. the game is a complete and total joke. but it does have an irritating flash effect so i guess if you like epilepsy it will be good for you Full Review »
