Build a team of heroes to force the forces of chaos in HonorBound a turn based strategy game that lets you form your own team of unique fighters. Offering a dark campaign to adventure through, PvP and regular PvE events is a traditional RPG with light MMO features.
Choosing from one of five starting characters that come from their own elements you’ll witness the power of chaos first hand as you go through the tutorial elements. Upon completion of the tutorial you’ll gain your first hero to stand by you in battle, with the option to eventually have 5 heroes on the battlefield at once.
These battles take place within the individual campaign levels that can be selected from the overworld map and only occur when the player encounters an enemy while walking. Once a battle is engaged the game switches to a turn based experience where you’ll command your units in turn to attack an opposing unit or activate one of their skills instead. While early levels don’t venture much beyond basic attacks once a team of 5 is under your control you’ll find a bit more thought goes into each of your decisions.
Outside of battle you’ll also have strategy in terms of research that you perform, how you build your team and power them up for battle by choosing to upgrade either their rank, attributes or abilities. Items found throughout your adventure can also be equipped to your heroes.
The biggest negative you’ll come up against in HonorBound is the energy system which doesn’t apply on level selection and instead on each movement you make within the level. While this is overcome early with level ups it quickly becomes a chore and prevents you from enjoying the game for long lengths of time.
