Love the game, but I am unsure how to unlock all 5 hero's. I am on the epic levels, seems a little late to unlock two more brackets of upgrades?
but nothings too new
plz add more stuff
Same old Same Old
Being a long term newgrounds lurker, I never write reviews but I felt that one was warranted for this game.
I've played all of the Epic War games, beaten them, enjoyed them, yet with each "sequel", if you could call them that, it seems the gameplay doesn't improve, instead you are faced with the exact same "Mission" to conquer or rid the lands, with the same units (Or different units that do the exact same thing)
On top of that some units are still better than others, even with this new "Weakness or Strength" factor that's been implemented. When I say this, I am referring to any Unit thats attack causes the opponent to be launched up in the air, stunned, pushed back, or even interrupted.
Epic War also has a tendency to be Laggy, I run a high-end computer but even with this game (On Low Quality might I add) the slow paced units come to a snails pace.
You have an ideal game concept, but you need to perfect it.
()Tone down the Attack Animation waiting period
()Put some restraint on "Launch in the air" attacks, it's not appealing to watch a 50 unit team be beaten down by 2-6 suicide rats, this wastes the players time.
() Titans? While I enjoy the whole "lets fight the super-ultra-mighty unit" philosophy, it has to have an ending point. It took me at least thirty minutes to defeat the Trojan Horse looking titan, due to the fact that it kept whipping up my units with tornados, Suicide rats and various other combinations.
() Try to incorperate the gameplay from EW3. I prefer Epic War 3 over 4, due to the more dynamic hero choice and monster choice. It just seems like you waste so much (time) gold to buy up the monster-tree to obtain what you want, only to have to spend 19,000 gold to achieve rank 2.
Love the music
Like the concept
But these attack animations are killing me. Watching a hero unit engage in a 6 second attack sequence to get stunned, knocked back, or have the enemy withdraw from range is a bit annoying. (many eye rolls playing)
not bad, but...
game is a bit laggy and slow, when comes and army. there could be quality buttons in options menu. and when you complete about 10 levels, its getting boring and much harder
