One of the best things about mobile games is that they can be pretty much anything. From retro arcade games to complex multiplayers, anything is truly possible when it comes to iPhone and iPad gaming.
Tap Heroes – Idle RPG Action is an incredibly fun and fast-paced game for iOS.
Developed by Daniel Hjelm, this unique arcade RPG immerses players in a world filled with enemies that must be destroyed with a tap of your finger.
Concept and Gameplay:
When I opened Tap Heroes for the first time, I knew that this game is definitely something special. Instead of taking the usual approach of gradually easing new players into the game via easy levels and detailed tutorials, new players are immediately thrown into gameplay upon opening the game.
The goal of Tap Heroes is to battle your way through waves of enemies level by level. Along your journey, you’ll encounter over 70 different enemies, 10 different worlds, and you’ll meet new friends along the way who will fight alongside you.
To play, all you have to do is tap enemies repeatedly when they appear on the screen, thus doing damage to them. The faster you tap, the more damage you do in a shorter period of time. You can also heal yourself by tapping on your character.
Tap Heroes starts out pretty easy and gives new players plenty of time to adjust to the gameplay environment. However, it’s best not to get too comfortable with casual gameplay because enemies definitely get harder as you reach higher levels. Therefore, it’s very important to make sure you pay attention to your heroes by upgrading their skills such as attack, heal, and critical damage.
While I like the fact that Tap Heroes is loaded with fun content and plenty of customization options for your character, I will say that your finger gets pretty tired and cramped after a few minutes of gameplay. Personally I found that setting my phone down on a table or on my knee allowed me to use both fingers to attack enemies, thus doing more damage twice as fast.
One of the best things about Tap Heroes is that the game offers a seemingly endless number of levels for players to fight through, as well as challenging boss fights.
Not only do you have to make sure your heroes are strong enough to defeat enemies, but you also have to pay attention to your health. I really like games like this because they require quite a bit of awareness on the player’s part.
Along with upgradable skills, Tap Heroes features an in-game shop that allows players to purchase bonuses for the heroes using gold from defeating enemies. Players can also earn gems by completing achievements, which allows them to pick up additional heroes when they’re available.
Tap Heroes is available to download from the App Store for $0.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. The only in-app purchases are for gem packs and doubling the amount of gold you currently have. So long as you’re patient, you should be able to earn plenty of gems and gold just by playing the game.
There’s also a free version of Tap Heroes if you’re not sold on the game just yet.
Overall, Tap Heroes is a fantastic game it’s worth every penny. It offers truly unique gameplay, a fast-paced environment, and plenty of customization options for players to build the strongest team possible.
