HEROish on Apple Arcade: A SuperParent First Look

Players can complete single-player campaigns and compete in multiplayer battles in this 'castle defense' game.

HEROish is now available on Apple Arcade, Apple’s game subscription service that gives subscribers unlimited access to a curated selection of games for a single monthly price.

HEROish is a “castle defense” game that will challenge players to defeat enemies in single-player and multiplayer modes.

The game’s single-player mode allows players to complete three story-based campaigns. For instance, the first story challenges players to defeat the evil “Cursed” who have invaded the in-game world. Players can choose from multiple difficulty settings for each campaign, and they can change their difficulty setting even after they begin a campaign.

In each battle, players can move their hero left and right using an on-screen joystick, and their hero will attack nearby enemies automatically. Players can also spend mana points to play cards from their deck. These cards allow players to cast spells, add extra units to the battlefield (these units will move and attack enemies automatically), and more.

As players complete battles during a campaign, their hero will earn experience points and will level up, causing them to become stronger. Players will also collect coins that they can use to upgrade their cards to improve their stats. Finally, players will collect new cards as play, and they can choose the cards they want to have in their deck (their deck can hold a limited number of cards).

In the game’s multiplayer mode, players can compete against other players in one-on-one and two-on-two battles. Players can choose from six different hero characters in the game’s multiplayer mode.
