NowGo has recently published their first Idle i.o style RPG title Pixel Heroes Defense, on Android. In this game, you can indulge in an intense auto-battle-based experience where you can set up your deck embellished with powerful Heroes to withstand the constant bombardment of monsters. With this story, we will dive deeper into the gameplay, unique features, and availability of the game.
About the game
It is a simple idle RPG emulating the i.o flash player-based games on Android. i.o games are lightweight games with easy-to-understand gameplay that can run smoothly on your browsers such as Chrome. The developers of Pixel Heroes Defense follow a similar game design philosophy as the i.o games to make it less resource hungry and fit for lower-end devices. It employs pixel artwork for character creation, but the overall menu design and equipment are designed per RPG standards.
You are tasked to protect your arena from a non-exhaustive swarm of monsters thrown at your deck. You can calibrate your deck, unlock and upgrade heroes, place them in strategic positions according to their abilities, and win the battles. As you level up in the game, you will unlock faster auto-battle speeds and more powerful Heroes. You can also unlock and equip your Heroes with equipment to strengthen their abilities.
Gameplay of Pixel Heroes Defense
There are two major ways to engage with the game. The first one is to monitor your heroes and their position on the deck and keep updating it in real time. The second method is configuring your deck and letting it auto-battle the enemies. You can check back at any time and collect your rewards obtained while offline.
The whole gameplay revolves around your ability to strategically place your Heroes on the 5×5 deck and equip them with suitable items to boost their abilities. Pixel Hero Defense is divided into multiple stages, with a Boss to be defeated at every stage. The boss can only be challenged manually in the game and grants superior rewards as compared to the regular monsters.
Unique Features of the game
Every Hero has unique skills and attributes
With an ever-growing fleet of carefully crafted Heroes, Pixel Heroes Defense allows you to be creative with your strategy against the monsters. You have to choose the Heroes wisely and match them according to the abilities of the monsters thrown at them. Rearrange the position of Heroes on the deck to tackle the monsters, and place them in the squares according to their characteristics and the equipment you have equipped them with.
Dungeon Farming for faster growth
Pixel Heroes Defense lets you boost your growth and level up faster by acquiring resources from special dungeons including Weekly Dungeon, Promotion Dungeon, Adventure Dungeon, Infinite Dungeons, Growth Dungeon, Gold Dungeon, and Gemstone Dungeon. Additionally, you can also use Exp buff, Gold Buff, Equipment Buff, and Gemstone Buff to boost your resource collection in the game. You can acquire these buffs for free by watching some ads in the buffs section.
Collect Rewards acquired offline in Idle battles
While you are AFK, the game employs its idle battle system to collect resources for you. You can collect these to level up your Heroes or purchase additional equipment to boost your in-game growth.
