The developers at Foursaken Media continued to release games of the extraordinary strategy genre "Tower Defense" mixed with MOBA. The result is Bug Heroes 2 - a bright full of adrenaline hybrid of castle defense and twin-stick shooting with a dose of RPG mechanics sprinkled in.
The second part of this game has some rather significant differences like new enemies, co-op and versus multiplayer and another large roster of upgradable characters-insects with their particular strengths and weaknesses.
You have various modes to choose and enjoy playing Bug Heroes 2:
- a single-player mode h
as tons of missions available. Moreover, you can play an endless survival mode where countless waves of enemies come at you in increasing numbers;
Multiplayer works well and the huge variety of heroes to choose from leads to matches feels a bit different every time.
Bug Heroes 2 is undoubtedly better than the first game, but still, keeps Foursaken Media’s exclusive visual style. Heroes and playgrounds in Bug Heroes 2 are varied and painted with perfect taste.
A new attractive element is the camera control. You have your choice of two different angles on the action and they are both useful. To pick what view is perfect for your situation, you can consider overhead view for tackling enemies on the battlefield or hunting for food and parts while the long-range view will let you see for upcoming enemies and will be useful for lining up shots with ranged attackers. You can switch between them by pushing a button.
In Bug Heroes 2 you’ll also have an option to zoom in by tapping a button and use an improved behind-the-back camera that provides a better picture of what’s far from you. It makes the little graphical details much more noticeable.
Furthermore, all battles are played out in the real world environments that appear appropriately massive from your pint-sized perspective. Each of your suitably weighty bugs jumps around these areas using cups, pencils and a host of other items for cover as they make their way to the objective
The fighting in each mission, according to the storyline, takes place in the most unusual locations like kitchen tables, floor corners, dark closets. And an essential thing: everything happens when people are not around. Bug Heroes 2 tells an interesting story about towers, occupied territories and players that are offered to pick two characters out of twenty-five available and to protect their base and get the food!
All bugs crawl in the dust in total darkness. Competitors are coming across their way. Arrange the towers and explore the defensive structures, capture food and bring it to the base, attack the enemy and get experience and the chance to develop your class.
At the beginning of the game, you’ll get two random heroes into battle and can switch between them if you want. Bug Heroes 2 allows you to give basic movement orders to the secondary hero, which means you can formulate simple strategies such as placing a melee fighter in a bottleneck and supporting them with a ranged character. You can tell them to stay at the line of defense or ask them to follow you. It might not seem like much, but this gives you the option of, say, leaving a good long-ranged attacker at a strategic point near the base as a reliable defense while you take your speedy melee character out to hunt for goods.
Since you can select pick two heroes for each battle, there are tons of combinations to put together to cover a variety of playstyles, and you'll need to investigate many of them to find the right duo for each mission. Passing a mission will give you some diamonds and stars, which can be used to unlock new characters and upgrade your existing ones.
Moreover, you earn coins with each level that you can use for buying weapons. But, after you complete the level, the stocks of coins and arms reset, so you always have to fill them up again. That allows you to spend these coins pretty freely on creating the most powerful stuff you want.
The controls in Bug Heroes 2 might be confusing for a tower defense game. So to maximize your performance as a player you need to know every element of controls. Before you start any mission, you can take a look at the insect dictionary in the selection menu and find out more about your enemies. You’ll get to know how they move and should attack, including how to eliminate them quickly.
For controls, you need to use a stick. The left virtual stick is responsible for movement speed, the right for direction and camera control. Swiping vertically on the lower-right side of your screen will let you execute an instant about-face turn.
You can shoot at enemies automatically or manually, shooting mode specifications you can find in the settings.
Replay Value 4.5/5
Bug Heroes 2 packs the game with the numerous characters and various squads and challenges players to progress through the levels and improve their characters over time. When you combine these difficult obstacles with rather appealing graphics, it becomes somewhat exciting to play and interesting to understand a strategy success.
New changeable maps would make this game brighter and more attractive for its gamers, as well as a mode that allows you to play as the enemy bugs.
As I mentioned earlier, completing levels will earn you stars and diamonds. Your picked heroes will also earn mastery points after each battle, leading to level-ups that make them even stronger. Diamonds are supposedly the game's premium currency and you can buy them with real money, but the game shares with you generously.
The game has two modes, multiplayer and single-player campaign. Through single-player, you can access endless challenges that will ask you to defend your base from infinite waves of monster. There are also Skirmish modes that will require you to destroy your enemies’ base. It is better to play both of them, so you will never feel tired of playing Bug Heroes 2 over and over again.
The single-player missions don't always adequately prepare you for the types of enemies you'll face, so at first, it can feel like the odds are stacked against you while constantly repeating and failing the same missions. But through continued play, the game hits its stride, as the strategies for how to best manage your insect heroes and turrets start to become more clear.
It's a game that you shouldn't miss if you have even a mild interest in defense games, third person shooters or strategy games.
Pros : MOBA-like competitive & cooperative multiplayer;
more than 75 types of enemies;
tons of single player content, an endless mode, and a base & base skirmish mode;
Cons : things do sometimes crawl when the screen gets packed with enemies;
Replay Value 4.0
