Fans of base builders rejoice! The hugely ambitious Fleets of Heroes has landed on Google Play to shake up the competition with its revised take on the popular genre, and developer Inner Hero also has an all-new mode in the works.
The game, first released on the App Store, has made quite the splash recently. For those not in the know, Fleets of Heroes offers all of the base building mechanics and ideas that we know and love while also bringing intense PvP, cross-platform battle and trading, and a unique approach to combat where players can assume direct control of hero ships.
What sets the combat apart really is those hero ships. These massively powerful units offer their own unique skills and abilities, allowing you to get the edge over any opponent if you’re smart about it. Of course, the AI units can also be directed, but the hero ships grant the game a more tactical edge.
The primary form of battle in PvP is known as base raids. What you’ll be doing here is assembling your fleet to annihilate bases designed by other players. Though, if you want to make friends instead of steamrolling them, you have the option to form federations. These groups are super helpful if you fancy pooling together resources or fighters with other players for online tournaments.
And, in the not too distant future, Inner Hero is looking to expand the game with a new mode, known as Survival, which will see players using their hero ships and defences to fend off increasingly tricky waves of enemies. Again, you’ll need to stay on your toes and think tactically to cover any weak spots in your base’s design.
