This game gives you a break from real life to battle monsters …
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.
Free, for iOS and Android
