Rally up an eclectic and ever-entertaining team of fighters in Forged Fantasy. With all kinds of quirky, quick-handed heroes at your disposal, you can quickly switch between sword combat on the front lines and archery in behind. Need some more backup? A character with magical powers can cover you from afar.
Together, it’s your team’s job to battle bad guys who are in league with the evil queen who has caused a cataclysmic event called the Split. The bad news is, the warriors she’s got fighting for her are just as industrious as your team: they’ll launch explosives, fire giant slingshots and use superhuman force in an attempt to crush you. The good news? If you manage to beat them, sometimes you can co-opt these characters to join you in the fight against evil.
Constantly collecting weird and wonderful new heroes (how about a bazooka-wielding hyena or a beast made entirely of rocks?) keeps the game interesting and constantly evolving. And the banter those adventurers exchange when they enter into battle sets the tone for a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Getting ahead in this adventure is all about strategy. When choosing a team to go into battle, you’ll need to ensure you have a healthy balance of melee, range and magical fighters. Plus, every character is associated with an element – fire, water or nature; so tapping in a water hero to go up against a fire enemy will get you a lot further than if you tried to take on fire with nature.
Boost your powers by gearing up and levelling up; you can get more heroes by collecting fragments along your campaign missions. And join in daily events like PvP tournaments and play in co-op mode. The more ways you play, the more fighters you’ll collect.
The heroes may not be your typical knights in shining armour, but once you see the new one-eyed, hook-handed soldier or the magical horned mage, you’ll realise their quirks only make them cooler.
