Day 73 – Bit Heroes

Explore a vast new MMORPG world inspired by your favourite 8-bit & 16-bit dungeon crawlers. Bit Heroes captures that charm and nostalgia of your favourite RPGs, delivering them seamlessly to your mobile device. Collect and craft thousands of pieces of loot to increase your power. Build your team by capturing monsters and bosses to fight at your side in old school, turn-based combat. Prove you’re the mightiest hero in the land by competing in the PvP arena, Raids, and weekly events for awesome prizes! Take your most powerful friends and guild mates along to battle at your side!

While dungeon-crawlers have never particularly appealed to me because of their restricted nature, Bit Heroes really does have me hooked, and that is because of its open-world element. Don’t get me wrong, the heart of this game is in its dungeons, and these are successful in providing the classic feel and nostalgia of the game’s 8-bit predecessors; especially with their awesome graphics which harken back to these games.

The hub area of the game is what truly makes this different to older dungeon crawlers, with the opportunity to make powerful allies with other players from around the world in real-time. The different dungeons laid out across an old parchment scroll map make you feel like each level you are launched into is just a small part of the larger world and your quest for loot.

Speaking of loot, finding the best gear is a big part of this game, and as it should be. Even when I have completed a dungeon by defeating its boss I still find myself clinging to the prospect of some epic weapon hidden away in some area I am yet to explore, so I continue to strive on through enemies.

The actual fight mechanics are fun, as fights are easily launched, and each one clearing an enemy avatar from the dungeon itself. Much like many other games, you have a team of minions to assist you in fights, and both your team and the enemy team take it in turns to exchange blows.

Overall, I think that this is a great game for people who want to relive some of those 8-bit hijinks and experience a new take on dungeon crawlers. Play it for a chance to become that awesome monster-hunting warrior you have always dreamed of becoming!
