This game gives you a break from real life to bat­tle mon­sters …

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Push He­roes feels like the sort of game you would have played on an old-school con­sole: a top­down, grid-based map on which you fight mon­sters for glory. Ex­cept in­stead of us­ing a con­troller, you tap and slide to con­trol your char­ac­ters in turn­based bat­tle.

The re­sult is sim­ple but very fun.

It def­i­nitely fits the bill as a com­mut­ing dis­trac­tion or ac­tiv­ity for a men­tal break. The game gives you the op­tion, as you progress, to be a sword­wield­ing hero, an archer or other spe­cial char­ac­ters.

For those who love a classic, un­com­pli­cated role-play­ing game, it more than fits the bill. The game does have in-app pur­chases that will help you along, but it’s per­fectly pos­si­ble to play with­out buy­ing your way to the top.
