Hero Defense is a solid take on the tower defense genre.

This is an average game wrapped up in an abysmal marketing choice. Avoid for now, just be sure to give it a second look if it hits an amount you're willing to pay.

8 / 10

Hero Defense is a fun and challenging tower defense game with some nice twists and gameplay mechanics that will keep you entertained from start to finish. There are more than enough levels to play, and the extra sets of challenges you can take on as you replay them, as well as the difficulty increase you can take on, will satisfy even the most experience tower defense fans out there. Get this one on PS4 right now!

Hero Defense stands out for the good tower defense gameplay along with the real-time strategy system, but it disappoints with an uninspired and limited progression similar to a free-to-play game. Despite this, the difficulty of some missions and extra challenges may still be interesting to the genre lovers.

Hero Defense provides a refreshing take on tower defense games but its gameplay remains mostly simplistic when you compare it to other games in the genre.

If you're looking for a simple, fun and addictive game to pass some time with then Hero Defense fits right into that category. The game itself isn't overly complex and provides hours of replayability, the story is easily digested and quite humorous at times. Hero Defense is obviously aimed at a younger audience but provides plenty of entertainment regardless of your age.
