App Store Link: Hero Academy, Free
Awhile back I posted about Hero Academy by Robot Entertainment, a really great iOS multiplayer strategy game. Well, as of yesterday Hero Academy is that much better with its brand new 1.2 update. Click the link for full details, but here are the main updates:
- Hero Academy is now a universal app with iPad support!
- New team available: the Tribe! Led by fearless chieftains, the Tribe is relentless in its pursuit of victory!
- New FREE Tribe-themed playfield featuring Barbed Crystals and Magic Resist premium squares!
For me its absolutely huge that Hero Academy is finally Universal. Honestly, running it in 2x mode on my iPad 2 was a bit painful on the eyes. So the first great news is that Hero Academy now looks and plays beautifully on iPad!
Secondly, Robot Entertainment has added a new team called The Tribe. Think Horde from World of Warcraft and you are 90% there… Along with the new team is a brand-new playfield with some new Crystals and premium squares. All in all, it seems like an incredible update! I started a few new games yesterday and had a bit of trouble since I think the server’s might have been a bit overloaded but its working great today.
Of course, Hero Academy is free, as always. The Tribe is a $1.99 IAP. Is it worth it? Can’t say yet. I’m planning a bit of a strategy guide and roundup on all the teams, coming soon!
UPDATE: Robot Entertainment has put the Dwarves team (via IAP) on sale for 50% off to celebrate version 1.2! At 99c I’d certainly be tempted to pick those little buggers up…
