It's a very casual take on the srpg genre. On the downside, you can powerup faster than usual by going IAP, but so far, it isnt required. This power spike when going the IAP route is also being balanced a bit by having restrictions to access to skills unless you've completed certain mission, which is nice.

It's free, i dont see ads in it, and the IAP is more balanced than it seems.

Things may get more interesting as i unlock more, we'll see.

Great game, if you enjoyed the first one. I will admit that the overall feel is identical to the first, but adds variety with the missions.

Having a little problem with random crashes, they wouldn't be so bad if they didn't happen during the battles which cause a lost life (or an hour of recovery time). They happen rarely, but enough that something needs to be done. Also maybe make the item inventory consolidate itself? Its getting a little annoying scrolling through 16 gold scanners, 10 body armors, ext... Maybe just list them like:
Body Armor x10
Gold Scanner x16

..or make them sellable.

Larger maps in future updates would be awesome, but looking forward to item creation update soon! I will continue to buy the new maps as they come out, so keep them coming!

Hey everyone - Andrew from Haiku Games here. Thanks for playing!

Our next major update is the forge that lets you combine your items so the inventory maybe less of an issue. The minor update after that will add some analytics so we can try to debug the crash issues, which we definitely want to solve!

Since the crash issues have been hard for us to track down, if you want to share any information about what you are playing Sol Heroes on (iPod Touch 4th gen, iPad) and your operating system (5.0, 6.0, etc.) as well as what you were doing before you crashed, that will help us out a lot. Our email is support@haikugamesco.com.

Crash Reports sent. Don't let this make you think that I do not enjoy the game, I have crushed through all the levels already and dying to play more. So thanks and keep it up!

**the forge item command is awesome, completely fixes the inventory issue I was having. Great update!

I received the reports - thanks so much! Updates (including more levels) are definitely in the works, but I am going to try to make the game more stable before adding too many new features. Thanks again.
