Not forgetting the hidden treasure throughout that offers unlimited loot for crafting gears and upgrading heroes, this is a hackn’ slash RPG title where players are sure to sink in hundreds of hours into.

Stunning Visual and Fluid Combat

As mobile game development matures, more action RPG titles become available, but many action RPG games neglect the smoothness of gameplay as they seek to produce jaw-dropping visuals. For Heroes of the Dungeon, the development team took extra effort in hardware optimization to make sure the game plays smoothly across as many devices as possible, striking a balance between fluid gameplay, great character details, rich environments, smooth combat and great audio and visuals.  The game runs on the Unity engine and can be enjoyed with Android 4.0.3 and above, as well as iOS 5.5.1 and above.

Exclusive MOBA Mode

Gamers of today expect more in terms of gameplay and game modes, aside from the 4 single player modes, Heroes of the Dungeon offers 6 different competitive modes.

From a more standard fare of 1 on 1 Runestone battle, 3 on 3 death match PvP, to guild versus guild battles; the most innovative of all is the Bridge of Arbitration mode.  The Bridge of Arbitration is a MOBA mode offers 2 on 2 MOBA fights, players represents either the blue or the red side and the main goal is to destroy the opponent’s nexus tower within the time limit or score more points than the opponent for a win.

This exclusive MOBA style gameplay will exercise every ounce of the player’s ability to control their Heroes and understanding the skill combos between heroes as well as how to counter opponent tactics.  Bridge of Arbitration comes with online leaderboards and every week the top players will be rewarded with in-game items for their achievements, and some rare items will only be available here, hence the Bridge of Arbitration will sure stir up much multiplayer mayhem!

Development Backstory

Professionalism, innovation, entertainment and quality are the principles that InterServ holds highly and they are integrated into the “Heroes of the Dungeon” whole design concept.

“For Heroes of the Dungeon, we designed a very large world with complex character relationships, these relationships materializes in both the single player modes as well as the competitive modes.  The development took two years, and we’ve carefully selected the key elements that we feel can maximize the gameplay enjoyment for mobile players and make the game what it is, this is unlike how others who are just imitating an already existing concept.

We have also additional ideas for this Dungeon-based Action RPG, of which many will be implemented in future version of this game through updates.  Heroes of the Dungeon will ensure players to enjoy something that they’ve never felt before when it comes to mobile gaming, and right at the start the player will experience an epic “Dragon Battle” scene as an introduction to the story, one that invokes feelings and emotions.
