Hero Academy Is Chess On Steroids

The award winning strategy game Hero Academy from developer Robot Entertainment has arrived with its unique brand of turn based warfare. This tactical strategy title from the makers of Halo Wars and Orcs Must Die! pits various fantasy style armies like the dark elves or human council against each other in a massive contest to see who is truly the strongest once and for all.

Hero Academy plays like a hyper realized mixture of traditional rpgs and the classic game of chess. Two armies, which can be controlled either through AI or cross platform multiplayer with iOS and PC players, will clash in epic grid based conflict with the objective of either slaying their opponents entire team or destroying its power crystal.
