Battle endless hordes of evil orcs and monsters in this idle action RPG adventure!

Battle orcs and pirates in this fantasy hero game, as you defend against waves of enemies charging your base! This idle game lets you create a team of heroes – knight, ranger, mage and more – to defend against an endless swarm of vicious foes! Cast spells, earn gold, upgrade heroes and complete daily missions as you save the day.

A fantasy game of heroes and monsters, Idle Hero Defense makes you the commander. Like tower defense games, your heroes will fight off evil foes, gaining gold, leveling up, and unlocking new heroes as you play.

As a tap game, you recruit, train, and command your heroes from the touchscreen. Incremental game mechanics mean your heroes will grow as they fight, surviving against ever-worsening waves of monsters and fighting until they win.

Slow to Start, Hard to Put Down

I’ve been playing this game for a week now and it’s exactly what I love about clicker games without extra novelties or annoying features. It’s different than other clicker games in many ways, especially since it feels like you do make progress even when the game is off, but I’ve been so addicted to it that I’m never compelled to turn it off. The variety in characters and monsters is great. Being able to get equipment is a great feature too which makes me want to keep playing and going up the ladder. The music is fantastic and varied as well, not just the same song looping forever. There’s also always something to do from the weekly tournaments to the mini games, so you may find yourself clicking around more than actually letting the game play itself.

A little buggy

Well, I’m not sure if the developers actually look at the ratings or not, but I’ll write about this bug anyway. So here I am playing mid tournament, and the game lags and I can’t see my progress, so I’m like, alright, I’ll exit out and reload the game. Then when I get back on about a minute later, it says I’ve been gone for over 2,000 days. Apparently time goes by very fast when you’re offline? Well, thought I’d at least say something so maybe they’d figure out what happened, or if it was a simple bug or something. In conclusion, it isn’t my fault the game glitched and all, and I wasn’t purposely doing anything, but it’s a great game, and I love it!

Broken saves, slow combat

If something happens to your device you’re out of luck, Cloud Saves don’t work. Tried loading it on my tablet as it as better battery life and it says it’s loaded; however everything is completely reset.
Gameplay is extremely slow. After playing for awhile you’ll be able to 1 hit monsters until round 150. However, despite dealing so much damage so quickly you won’t actually get anywhere any farther; as it’s nearly impossible to increase your attack speed enough to make a difference. Instead, you can pay a whopping $9.99 so you can attack x2 as fast, which is still bad.
You’re also limited to only using 5 Heroes at a time despite there being (36?), so still can’t increase your speed there.
Other than that, there’s a lot of content in it, prestige’s, leader boards, weekly tournaments, etc.

However it’s also not a clicker, you’re simply sitting there idle with your phone on doing nothing for sometimes 40-50 minutes at a time as there’s practically no way to increase speed of gameplay and you’re 1 hitting everything without Level 1 Heroes.

Hope to see saves fixed and maybe implement tapping to increase speed of gameplay.
