Customer Reviews

Hero Academy is a good, good time!

I have lost track of how long we have been playing, well over a year! Still having fun, still waiting for more teams. This game is fun, very fun! I like playing with friends the most. We also try different rules, but that is a work in progress. The maps are fun. I take exception to the transporter because it is so easy to fool. Your recent upgrade is training challenges and single play: love it! I think you should go back and sneak in more hidden moves or map traps. Anyway, looking forward to new teams! You could charge for the upgrades. :) thank you! Update: months later & still having fun! Bring on the guys with guns! Still going strong! Thank you! Many more months later- so much fun. Input: hate the train map. Would love to see damage commiserate with injuries. The more injured the less destruction they can impart. More teams! Thank you for a great gaming experience!

Almost a complete success

This could easily be the best game I ever own on my iPhone. The game is impeccable on strategy, balance, cleverness and graphics. But it is impossible to play right now.

Network is really bad, long wait on dialogs, weird transitions from push notifications and if you don't close the game you won't get new notifications in current version.

This use to be easily overcome by the cheer joy of the great matches. Now that they joined Steam a bunch of people drop the games mid way though or keep pushing you to play almost real time, which the game doesn't even properly support.

I had this game since almost it's lunch. It's a shame how bad it become simply because of the amount of networking problems, the dropout of good players and the income of uninterested Steam players. This used to be a five star game that I miss so much.


This game is probably HANDS DOWN, the best ios game I have ever played. Keep working towards this game and I can definitely assure you this game will become HUGE one day.

-Friendlist to chat and talk to friends
-Maybe a community chatbox in the game so ppl can meet other people or discuss about strategy
-Frequent updates to balance the teams
--I really feel like the team Team Fortress is really out of place. It just feels like an outsider team compare to the rest. Maybe an option to allow players to choose if they can queue up with a Tf2 team or not?
-A ranking system within the game kind of like a Ladder system to record wins and losses

Thank you for reading :)
