Horde of Heroes is a new puzzle RPG for the iOS platform. This genre has been done to death, but whereas most games are clones of each other, Horde of Heroes is a unique and massively difficult take on it that mixes diverse goals with blazing speed. Read on for some tips and tricks for Horde of Heroes!
You have only ten lives to begin the game, and whenever you lose a life you have to wait for it to return, normally. Alternatively, you can watch a video with an advertisement and regain one life for free. Or, you can go to the date and time settings on your phone or tablet and set the time ahead by 20 minutes per life. So for a full restoration you would need to set the time ahead by 3 hours and 20 minutes.
Once you do this, go back to Horde of Heroes and observe the restored hearts. Then, go back to the date and time settings and set the time back to normal. Once you do that, go back to Horde of Heroes again and your lives will still be full. Alternatively, if you don’t want to mess with time, log the game onto Facebook and send lives back and forth with your friends.
You’ll get keys as you battle, and the keys are used to open three different treasure chest. Save up three keys so that you can open the big treasure chest each time, because this one will contain the best equipment by far with the greatest statistical boosts compared to the stuff that you’ll find in the cheaper chests. The one key chest is comparable to what you usually find in battle, and the two-star chest is slightly better.
Unlike other puzzle RPGs, speed is key here. Knock out combos as fast as you can, and use tricks to score massive amounts of points at the same time. Mix two rainbow pieces together to knock out every block, for example, or mix the rainbow pieces with bombs to knock out every bomb at once or to turn loads of pieces into bombs depending on the piece.
In general, keep a balanced statistical profile as you level up, but skew your level ups towards your health as that is always a useful upgrade – ditto with your defense. Load up on the attack stats in order to win faster, but the elemental stat boosts tend not to be all that useful compared to the other ones, due to what limited use there is for them.
