Collect your favorite Star Wars characters, like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Darth Vader, and more, from every era – then conquer your opponents in epic, RPG-style combat. Build mighty teams and craft the best strategy to win battles across iconic locations to become the most legendary hologamer in the galaxy!
In every play session of Galaxy of Heroes, two teams of up to six characters duke it out on a variety of planetary or interstellar backdrops.
You pick attacks and abilities for heroes using a turn-based system. If you manage your heroes’ abilities and cooldowns well, you’ll progress to the next series of fights, eventually culminating in a win that grants some gear and materials.
A disturbance in the force
The main hook of Galaxy of Heroes is in building a team capable of winning every battle, which involves quite a bit of strategy and a lot of loot and material gathering.
While this kind of gameplay is ubiquitous and successful in the mobile space, it doesn’t quite work here.
The Star Wars licence does make it more interesting but the presence of Jawas and Darth Vader feel more like stand-ins for unit types than actual characters.
The bottom line
Due to this lack of personality, Galaxy of Heroesfeels pretty bland. This, paired with the amount of grind-heavy mechanics from its free-to-play design, makes Galaxy of Heroes a pretty disappointing game.
