Lead your heroes and creatures to victory in the deck based mobile title, Deck Heroes. Featuring hundreds of collectible cards from one of four factions ensures plenty of deck variety and thus strategy.

Opting to focus on fast gameplay and a single player campaign the majority of your battles in Deck Heroes will last only a few minutes (perfect for the mobile environment). This single player campaign features a large number of varied levels which each offer 3 difficultly levels and require different deck strategies to conquer.

Central to your deck is your hero who is the most powerful in your line up and provides a number of abilities to the team. Just like your individual cards (known as creatures) they’ll level up throughout your journey, improve their skills and increase the number of creatures they can command (eventually capping out at 10).

This cap feels just right to ensure games don’t last too long and that you don’t have to excessively grind up the levels of your creature cards. Creatures belong to one of the four card factions, Faen, Elven, Neanders and Humans with each having their own theme (such as healing and health boosts of Faen). In addition to these abilities creatures have a weakness and strength against one of the other factions to create the tried and true rock-paper-scissors formula.

Like most card games though creating the deck is only half your battle. In Deck Heroes the other half of gameplay revolves around when and in what order you play the cards which you draw randomly from your deck.

Important things to consider include the faction match up, creature skills and the turn build up required to summon the more powerful creatures. Once placed on the game board they’ll face off against the corresponding enemy card.

With a lengthy campaign with each level having multiple difficultly levels Deck Heroes will keep you busy for months to come, the short game time also ensures you can play in short bursts throughout your day.

Summary:

  • Command cards from one of four different factions.
  • Fuse cards, level them up and conquer your enemies.
  • Vast single player campaign and plenty of PvP opportunities.
  • Fast paced games that last 2-3 minutes each.
  • Free card title for iOS and Android.
