Need A Hero

Make this game the delightful Need a Hero. Need a Hero is a curious blend of a match three game and a turn-based RPG. Your hero, called upon by a distraught father (who just happens to be a king) to rescue his beautiful daughter, has as his companions a page and a donkey who are not greatly appreciative of his purported heroism. Your mission is the same age-old dilemma, slay baddies and rescue the princess.

The match three rules are slightly different with diagonal matchups allowed. The basic concept is, you collect energy by matching up different creatures and then use that energy to unleash your hero’s terrible powers upon the cowering enemies. That is not all, however, there exist many powerful spells and epic powers to use against the enemies. There are different types of monsters, each with special abilities and gameplay style. The graphics are cartoony and the character designs are just the right blend of evil and comic.

The gathering levels are relaxing yet rewarding and help you prepare for the trials that lie ahead. No casual gamer has escaped unscathed from the onslaught of the numerous match 3 games out there. The game has been nominated for many awards. The most noteworthy of these the Android Game of the year 2014 from Pocket Gamer. It won the Best Mobile Game Award at the Winter Night Conference and also the title ‘Game to die for’ by playboard.me.

From Candy Crush to Bejeweled Blitz to the farm variants, there have been countless iterations, most only slightly differentiable from the others. It is greatly appreciable then, that Need a Hero brings something new to so oversaturated a genre.

Anusha Sinha was a harmless little Clefairy before she read Crime and Punishment. Now she thinks she is some sort of extraterrestrial ninja. She is an expert in the arts of mosquito-racquet wielding, being a silent grammar Nazi and karate. She spends her time contemplating the greatness of Miniatur Wunderland and the transient nature of human life, in equal measure.
