Hey Casual Gamers!  I’ve always been a great fan of Role Playing Games.  When you start looking into Role Playing Games on your phone, it’s very easy to find an app that’s just littered with menus!  It can be a real casual nightmare!  Let’s see if we Dash Heroes can give us the casual RPG experience we are looking for!



Gameplay

Dash Heroes can be your hack-n-slash RPG you never knew you needed!

Dash Heroes is a very expansive game, like any good RPG should be.  You start off with a brief tutorial on how to swing and move and use abilities.  Then you are off to save a kingdom!  Along the way you can collect chest and items, with some chest booby trapped with ads!

Once you clear to your first checkpoint, you are given an option to save and continue, or head to the menus.  The menu screen can be slightly overwhelming, but the tutorial does it’s best to guide you to the right locations and where to find what you are looking for.

Dash Heroes may come off as a hack-n-slash type of game, but it expands this type of play into an RPG style of advancement.  This plays to it’s strengths and it ultimately makes the game very user friendly and full of customizing delight.

Graphics

Dash Heroes has a surprisingly huge game map!

Dash Heroes is a pixel paradise!  Everything that reminds you of some of the legendary RPGs on the Super-Nintendo is brought back to life in this casual app.  There’s a few monsters that tend to repeat themselves or their color, but it’s so far and few between.  Even the boss fights are pretty epic and unique considering how the game-play works!

Your adventurer can also interact with the environment of the level and break down new pathways when you play the level over again.  This gives each play through a sense of difference as you can pick new paths you haven’t seen previously!



Music

Each play-through gives you points that can go towards skill enhancements!

Realistically, if you aren’t into hearing 8-bit sounds coming from the NPCs when they talk, you could make a casual playlist and turn off music and sound effects.  It’s not a deal breakaer when it comes to casual apps, but it can become overdone and slightly annoying.

For the adventurer that wants a full immersion into the storyline, headphone up!  It’s an 8-bit masterpiece.  The menu music is pretty basic, but it does change when going into the actual game.

Controls

The boss fights are rather interesting and demand a little focus!

While Dash Heroes does give you a guide on how to fight, the controls can be a little annoying.  The frustration will likely occur when you are trying to hack and slash, but just wind up defending and staying in place.  I can see this as being the cause for some deaths, but when it comes to a boss fight, the controls seem to wise up a bit.  It just might be a movement thing, but man is it annoying to keep blocking when you want to slay the baddies in front of you take your valuable HP away.

The power of In-App Purchases

The beginner’s bundle seems to be a great offer starting off!

Naturally, a casual game like this will be littered with ads.  Every-time a treasure chest is opened, an ad will surely be around!  There seems to be no ad-free option to purchase either.  It’s not a complete turn-off, and most of the ads are pretty updated with new games!

The beginner’s bundle changes every day and can upgrade to a mythic bundle.  The price break for a mythic bundle is $9.99.  It would also seem like the better deal than to just buy diamonds outright.  Now if these bundles offered an ad-free experience, we would have some extreme value from these purchases!



The Verdict

Don’t forget to speak to the townsfolk for items and quests!

Overall, Dash Quest Heroes is a gem.  A gem filled with ads, but a gem nonetheless!  This is a pretty unique game with a great deal of RPG elements rolled into it.  If that wasn’t enough, if you are a diehard casual, there’s a leader board and daily rankings to check your progress with others playing the game!

I feel as though Dash Quest Heroes is a keeper.  I’m sure I will figure a way around the hack-n-slash controls, but it’s not irritating enough to put it down!

Played Dash Quest Heroes and want to help out some new casual players?  Drop a hint or helpful tip in the comments section!

Happy Gaming, and as always, stay casual!
