Hero Siege Gameplay

The essence of Hero Siege is that the player held out several waves of advancing enemies and moved on to the level. The character you choose has unique abilities. The character development is designed like a traditional RPG system, which means that you receive experience points for performing specific actions. It subsequently increases the level of your hero, which enhances the character characteristics and provides a new unique ability.

Each level is randomly-generated, so that all death traps, nests of the enemies, treasure chests and other unique features spawn in random order. On several maps, you can find secret passages to additional dungeons which are small areas in the form of a corridor with random traps, puzzles, monster guards and an artefact at the end.

The game is full of traps that are dangerous for both heroes and monsters. For example, one of the most useful tactics is to push strong enemies on the sharp spikes. However, it's dangerous to underestimate the power of a horde of monsters that come at you from all sides, which happens every time the new wave begins. The goal of the player is to survive the attacks and defeat each monster; this is the only way to start a timer to the next wave. The monsters are divided by different types and levels, and in rare cases, there are also the elite versions of enemies (a more powerful version of the monster, with a larger size and dangerous skills).

Hero Siege is divided into five acts; each has unique monsters, bosses and surroundings. Each act is divided into six waves of attacks, and at the end of the battle players will have to defeat the dangerous bosses; in the last level of the farthest segment, you will meet a super boss.

In Hero Siege, there are 17 different classes, each of which has unique skills and style of combat. Before you start playing this game, you will have to create a character, give a name and choose one of these classes. The character receives an experience when killing monsters; after the hero gained enough experience, the level will automatically increase. For each new level, the hero gets two characteristics points, which can be invested in the improvement of characteristics, and one skill point, which allows you to strengthen the character's skills.

It's impossible to complete the whole game with the basic attacks and initial skills, and all the abilities have cooldown time so that Hero Siege provides players with an advanced system of items. After defeating the boss and cleaning out the hidden dungeons, you can receive some random pieces of armour or weapons. The more unique things you get, the more effective sets of armour you will be able to create. There are also exclusive items which provide additional skills.

Hero Siege has a permanent death mode for the hardcore players, and fans of customization can spend time studying the decorative elements of the hero's clothes and weapons. Also, developers often add new challenges and content to the project, which allows you to return to the game and play it again and again. Hero Siege has a single-player mode, as well as a cooperative game mode, where you can connect with three more players.
