Battleloot Adventure Review
by on January 18, 2013
If you don’t have any friends to play Hero Academy with and don’t really fancy the scary notion of diving into it with complete strangers, then hey, take a look at this. Battleloot Adventure’s an interesting alternative; it pitches itself as more of a strategy role-playing game, but neither the strategy nor the role-playing bit is too intimidating, and the result’s rather entertaining.
In reality, it’s a series of battles with role-playing overtones. You accumulate a band of assorted characters of different classes – soldiers, rogues, sages and mages – and pick groups of three to fight each battle against great-looking cartoon bad guys and monsters.
The basic combat’s easy to grasp: tap one of your characters, tap an enemy to attack and, optionally, tap your other characters to provide support, while defence is a matter of tapping your characters in order to try and block enemy attacks. Each class has an edge on another class, so you plan your assaults that way, and you need to watch not only your characters’ health but also their energy, which is drained by blocking or providing support.
As you progress you can upgrade your characters, earn special abilities to use on the battlefield and buy new weapons and kit – either with gold won in battle or by buying some through IAP. It’s not essential, but the option’s there. And as for the actual adventure bit, it’s adequate but lightweight – and isn’t helped by the game having been haphazardly translated into English from Italian. You can read great chunks of helpful instruction or exposition and then find they’ve fallen out of your brain 30 seconds later because they didn’t quite make sense. My mother!
