I had absolutely nothing but good things to say about Battleheart [99¢] in our review when it was first released. It's an entirely multitouch controlled real-time RPG battle game, which pits your varied party of four adventurers against many different types of monsters and bosses.

Battleheart takes traditional RPG elements found in party-based RPGs and even to some extent MMORPGs and boils them down to their essence. At its core, gameplay consists of managing a four member party through various battles. There isn't really any story to speak of aside from random flavor text describing characters and levels, characters only have four equipment slots, and there's only two statistics for each class to even worry about. In my early time with the game the latent RPG power gamer inside of me initially thought that how simple everything initially seems to be was a significant drawback, but oh, how wrong I was. ...Read More

Battleheart was just featured by Apple as the game of the week on the App Store, and in response Mika Mobile has dropped the price of their game to 99¢ for a very limited time.

If you were waiting on picking up Battleheart for whatever reason, now is your chance to pounce. Since its initial release it has been updated a few times with various tweaks and fixes. Don't miss this game while it's 99¢.

    Damn, just bought this a couple of days ago. Real good game, my only issue is the controls and health views.

    I play this on the iPad, and this would be 100x better if there were icons of each guy on the left side and you can just tap on the icon of the character then tap where you want to go on the screen instead of tapping on the character then dragging where you want to go. It causes problems like not selecting the right character when you need him, especially to use a critical power. Many times I tried to select a guy to use something and have difficulty cause of the clutter of characters. Also quit a bit of times a character has died because I couldn't tell his health bar was depleated due to the clutter of health bars of enemies and such. Would make sense to have the icons of the characters and there health underneath it at all times. Also kinda sucks that the health bar goes away on your characters after a little while.

    Anyways, other than the cluttery of the controls and health issues, good game, definitely worth a dollar

    Is there an over world, or is it all combat?

    • Gwet17

      The gameplay is all line drawing combat, but there are relatively deep RPG elements, fun spells, boss fights, and endless arenas. Don't miss it, even if you don't like RPGs!

    Just snagged this yesterday evening and I can honestly say it's the first real-time strategy that feels extremely comfortable to play on my iPod touch. There are others I like but this is by far the best IMO.

    Incredible game! I hope Mika Mobile builds deeper RPGs on this successful battle system, like dungeons, storylines, quests, etc. I also echo jeffyg3's wishes, I wish the character icons and health were there.

    Downloaded it and love it...great gameplay and I really like the cartoon graphics

  • Smokecity

    Picked this up and love it. Great tip, TouchArcade.

  • Bmayer

    Yeah.. this is one of the best RPG battle systems ever. iOS or otherwise. This built on top of a full story and exploration game would be awesome.
