You must be familiar with Hero Mages, a multiplayer turn-based tactics-style strategy game. As a browser game, it is welcomed by lots of players and even won an award last year for Technical Excellence over at indiePUB. So, what if you can play it on your Android device?
Hero Mages is set to be released on Android in Q4 of 2011 with an iOS version that will also be cross-platform multiplayer compatible coming later. As far as we know the game will be free with the ability to purchase in-game boosters although that is completely optional.
Where as the browser version is for multiplayer gaming, the Android version not only supports multiplayer gameplay (and all the features of the browser game) but also comes with three additional single player game modes: A story-driven tutorial campaign, Quick Battle and Custom Battle. Thanks to the Adobe Air, the developer has ported it over to Android and has redone the entire user interface so it would work great on mobile devices and take advantage of features such as pinch zooming, scrolling combo menus, double-tap controls and more.
New Interface Features:
- Use "pinch zoom" to zoom in on the map and "drag" with your finger to move the map around
- Flip phone to change the orientation of interface
- To issue orders, select a unit by clicking on them or pressing their profile. Select an action, then, tap once to select your target. Tap the target a second time to confirm the action.
