Hero Emblems - A Side-Scrolling Beat' em Up Puzzle JRPG.


This is gino from HeatPot Games. I would like to introduce our upcoming game -- Hero Emblems.
It is a JRPG that mixes "Side scrolling beat' em up" and "Match-3" features.

Here is the brand new trailer of our game

We have shown our game at Tokyo Game Show's Indie Game Area 2013 and Casual Connect Asia's Indie Prize 2014.
If you were there, perhaps you have some impression of our game.

Compared with other puzzle RPGs, the biggest feature of our game is to let you experience an old-school console JRPG on mobile devices.
We try to put JRPG elements into our game, such as the story ,PCs/NPCs' characteristic and in-game cutscenes.
About the battle system, we try to build a turn-based match-3 action system to experience the beat' em up.

It is a paid game. No IAP, No Ads, No need for network connection.
It will be released in Jan. 8, 2015.

Here are game features:
►Classical JRPG style adventures
Complete presentation the traditional JRPG world and story-driven quests. Seamless transitions between the battle scene and cutscene let you enjoy the fun of the console JRPG experience.

► Unique turn-based battle to offer the beat' em up experience
Launch combo attacks, defense, healing by matching rule.

► Unleash the power of skill emblems
Skill emblems can be generated by matching more emblems, allowing you to use the skills of your character to a new level.

►A variety of attack debuffs
Some Monsters would attack with debuffs, such as poisoning, sealing, freezing, petrifying. These different debuffs will be displayed distinctively on the tiles interface. Players can remove these directly, by matching with the debuffed emblems or using skills to remove.

► Big Adventure World
Bravely traverse into dungeons, wilderness, caves, and cross the ocean to visit the new continents in the fantasy world. In the journey, you will meet different personalities NPC, and visit a variety of village to purchase the new equipments and skills.

►Change Emblems & Learn Skills
Throughout the adventure you will get to pick up all kinds of emblems and learn different skills. You should complete your adventure with the best combinations!

►Choose the cross roads of stages!? Choose the fate!? What will the ending be like?

►No IAP! No Ads!

Looks cute! How many heroes are there at launch? Heroes are separated by no. Of stars?

Thanks, kenken11.
It is about 4 heroes' adventures.
So only 4 heroes and each hero has his/her own class - Fighter/Paladin/Witch/Cleric
But we translate the class to emblem wielder - Sword/Shield/Magic/Recovery Emblem.
It is a special design to fit the match-3 action system.

The heroes would grow the power by level up , changing emblems, and learning skill.
