Hero Generations is an innovative Roguelike/4X Strategy game where every turn is one year of your life. Praised as "the offspring of Sid Meier's Civilization, Jason Rohrer's Passage, and The Legend of Zelda."

Explore, find a mate, build a home, and raise a child before you die to keep your legacy going. Hero Generations is simple yet deep: 4X Strategy on the individual level. Each turn is a meaningful choice, without the tedious micromanagement.

Each move equals one year of your hero's life. Think carefully about how you spend the hero's time. Explore the world for fame and fortune, but make sure to find a mate before it's too late!

Find a mate, start a family, have a child. Then take control of that child in that same world! Choosing the right mate is key, as inheritable traits (special abilities) make your child more powerful and prepared.

Guide your hero to greatness by pursuing Strength, Love, Exploration, Wealth, Fame, and Building.

Construct any of 19 legacy lasting buildings next to towns to give future generations useful resources, powerful new abilities, and attract better mates.

Each world is procedurally generated with towns, forests, ancient ruins, heroes, and more. Discover all 6 unique Biomes (Forest, Desert, Meadow, Island, Swamp, and Volcano) through a giant overworld map.

A surprising and thought-provoking experience, that explores themes of death, legacy, family, love, and more.
Gorgeous hand drawn art style.

- Tech tree and Building Blueprints

Customer Reviews


This game has some fresh new concepts that I'm really digging. The lifespan throws an interesting twist on things. I think the gameplay could use a little more depth to help with the replay value though I haven't made it past gen 5 yet so may be missing something. It would be cool to see more variety of attacking, including a magic element. Overall very fun, challenging and new!

This is a real mobile game

This is a real mobile game, not some piece of trash, free to play scam with advertisements insulting the player. EA likes to take good games and make them unplayable like peggle and plants vs zombies. Not only do you have to pay for the trash, but they also come littered with ads and a free to play, con artist design implemented. You wont find that here. This is a real mobile game.

Enjoyable...for a bit

Pretty much everything is RNG, not quite what I would call RPG or 4X style gameplay.
Minor resource gathering and random trait generation is about as close at it gets. You don't control anything except where a small number of buildings go and when you go to the next generation.
Also, good luck once robots start showing up. Just as soon as you think you got rid of them, another wave starts wrecking your buildings. Blacksmiths are essential.
