Customer Reviews

This will win you over.

If you're new to iOS and on the fence about downloading a not so casual game, Hero of Sparta is the app for you. It controls surprisingly well and packs solid graphics. HOS also has a decent length to it and has some well orchestrated music to boot. The story pulls you in, and, once you start, there's no turning back. Even better, HOS runs smoothly on all generation iPhones.

This is the game for fence straddlers. But be warned. Once you play HOS, you won't be on the fence any longer. You'll be standing on our side.


U should add more maps :D


Quite possibly the best game ever created for iOS. Have have this game on my iPhone since the beginning, play it all the time! Way better than HOS2. Play Hero Level continuously...would be great if I could do something beyond level 4 with upgrades, seeing as I now collect red upgrade points and can't spend them! How about an update?
