With its gorgeous design, fantastic battle system and plentiful collectables, AFK Arena brings together everything that we love about role-playing games (RPGs), while stripping back the non-essentials for a truly special experience.
Take the battle system; many RPGs use a turn-based system that requires the player to systematically go through each combat decision individually. AFK Arena keep strategy and tactics to an easy-to-manage minimum.
The game keeps the action flowing for you, so your heroes – which span six different factions – can keep on battlin’ as you keep a close eye on those all-important special ability gauges. As soon as they peak, unleash the bonus damage needed to push battles into victories.
There are so many heroes to collect, too. Each new recruit brings something new to strengthen your team, offering a plethora of combat choices, as well as unique abilities and bonuses when heroes from the same factions work in unison. With so many special weapons and items in the mix, every match feels fresh and exciting. Best of all, AFK – a commonly used abbreviation for ‘away from keyboard’ – isn’t asking you to sink all your spare time into it, either. Just 10 minutes a day is usually enough to get your key daily activities done. You’ll probably want to play more though.
