The Step Hero ($HERO) game development team has more than 15 years of experience in the game industry. So, let’s start with the game testing.
Step Hero RPG Test
We are among the 500 whitelisted players, and the team has provided us with a login id (generally email), password, and a set of instructions to start with. Note that we will test the Login, Formation Setup, Adventure Mode (PvE mode) Combat feature.
To Test the game, you need to visit the link. A login screen appears. Now, log in with the credentials provided to us by the project team.
Logged in successfully. We tried to log in multiple times, and it is working fine.
Once we log in, the picture below will appear.
On the homepage, you will find Arena, Heros, and Adventure tabs. The Arena is for PvP mode, i.e., Player Vs. Player and the Adventure is PVE mode, i.e., Player Vs. Environment. However, these features are under construction and hopefully be available in the mainnet launch.
Click on Start Explore. The Step Hero RPG game currently has 16 characters, 8 Heroes, 8 Monsters, in their pre-launch phase. Each character has four combat skills. Also, collectibles are classified into Rarity and Elements:
- Rarity- Mythical, Legendary, SuperRare, Rare, Common, Uncommon
- Element- Fire, Water, Earth, Light, Dark
On the other hand, you will find that characters are categorized into the following rarity groups:
- Mythical- Zombie, Skeleton Warrior, Stone Gagoyle, Mammoth
- Legendary- Ranger Hero, Obsidian golem, Robinhood, Layla Vampire, Rogue Acher, Leonidas
- SuperRare- Ice Drake
- Rare- King Arthur, Rouge Mage
- Common- Guinevere
- Uncommon- Morgen Le Fay, Magic Hero
In the picture below, you will find that the right side of the box shows all the 16 characters available in the test environment. Users can select a max of 5 characters. Your Formation will be shown on the left side.
You can change the position of your selected characters. Also, you can always do a check-uncheck on the character to add/ remove them and update your Formation before pressing the start button to play the game.
Therefore, we have selected five heroes from the list and rearranged them:
Once the Formation is done, you can start with the game.
Play the Game
Click on the Start button, and the game will begin. This is a PvE battle game where your selected game players will play against the environment. All you need to do is start the game and watch until either all the heroes from one side get defeated, or they record victory over the other team. There are a total of 30 rounds.
A pause button is there at the top corner of the screen that allows you can surrender the game at any time.
In this section, you will find only the music and sound setting function in the setting tab.
We have played multiple rounds of the game. And here is a few thoughts that we have noticed:
- The characteristics of players are unknown. Due to this, you cannot plan your Formation as to whom to keep in defense and whom in attacker position.
- Critical hit leads to no damage to the enemy.
- Most of the time, heroes are playing against one enemy but are unable to defeat him.
- The enemy has more superpowers than heroes.
Overall, the game took you on a ride of high-end graphic battle with power-packed characters and their associated supernatural powers. The background music matches the essence of the game and doesn’t distract your focus. However, we feel that as we get more information about characters and their characteristics, we will understand their power more and help us decide our Formation.
In the end, we would like to thank the Step Hero team for providing us with the opportunity to test and review the game. Here is a video about it:
