Graphically the game isn't mind blowing and sadly it's not full retina on the ipad. Still for a moba it looks nice.

Follow me on Twitter for all the latest iOS news. And sometimes more.

(you can get some gems through tapjoy)
I suppose anything else would have been extremely uncharacteristic Well, remains to be seen just how long it will take to unlock champions through gameplay alone. Hopefully, the game ramps up the rewards as skill and levels increase.

I am really not a MOBA expert, even less than in most other genres , but I've been told by people much more insightful than me that the idea of weak heroes is a common misconception in MOBAs. Some are truly underpowered, but most simply have a very specific area of application by design, one that takes time to discover, learn and master, and that, when overlooked (something that easily happens unless you spend considerable time with the unit in question), makes the character feel weak.

Here's to this being the case in HoO&C as well.

Still, it is the first MOBA (emphasis on the O) for iOS. That alone gives the title a huge appeal.

Been looking forward to this for a while. Shame it comes out right before I'll be without internet access for 4 days.

Sorry, i could not stop laughing about how you kept tapping on "change target" key for the whole video. Thanks for the video though looks like they pretty much created a League of Legends experience for mobile devices.

weak heroes ( in dota 2 and HON)
are maybe misunderstood
the easiest heroes seem to be carries at first but after playing longer i've seen that heroes i failed and seemed weak can be very powerful if you play them right

im just enjoying the paladin right now. He may be labeled as a guardian type, but i play him as a bruiser and he kills things fast. He has a slow, and a gap closer, and his ult makes him immune to spells. What's not to like?
