Half a tactical game and half a RPG, Hero Mages would come to be, if we had to sum it up in a sentence, like a Heroquest game multiplied by a thousand, which focuses in tabletop-like battles as well as other elements characteristic of trading card games. There are thousands of possible combinations and it can be enjoyed online along friends and not-so-friends alike.
It's obvious that there's been a lot of work regarding gameplay, as the amount of in-game rules bear can witness to, all of them working behind the curtain. Players only have to point and click and let the AI decide the result of your action. As you get the grasp of it, you will start to strategize what you do and optimize your turns.
It falters somehow when we have to talk about design. It isn't bad at all, even though the top-down view doesn't favor it, but we are too used to RPG and fantasy games meaning outstanding artwork, which is not the case.
This "gold" version allows to create your own maps and other several options which were locked in the free"silver" version.

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!
