Incredibly engaging RPG about battling fantasy creatures.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

The on-screen controls are incredibly intuitive -- some of the best we've seen in a role playing game.


You'll battle a cartoon army of goblins, bats, and other medieval ghouls. Defeated enemies disappear in a puff of smoke, though, and there is no blood or screams of anguish.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Battleheart is a cartoon-ish role-playing game. The game uses a very basic interface, which makes it incredibly simple to understand and control -- letting you easily get into the thick of battle with the usual RPG enemies (goblins, bats, giant spiders, skeletons, etc.). While the game is little more than a series of battles, with opportunities to buy upgrades and recruit new party members in between those skirmishes, the violence levels are actually quite low. Enemies disappear in a puff of smoke and there's no blood. There's no difference between the iPad and iPhone versions of the game, except for the screen size. An Android version of the app is also available.

Review this title!

Is it any good?


There's a tendency in role playing games to overcomplicate things. Battleheart takes the opposite path. By lowering the barrier to entry, Mika Mobile has created an imminently accessible title that's incredibly charming. The cartoon-like appearance of the characters might lead some to believe this is a game only for kids, but there's actually a fair bit of strategy required -- as entering the later stages with the wrong combination of characters will result in certain defeat. Controlling the battle is done with a series of finger swipes, which is easy to pick up and keeps players involved in the game without overwhelming them. The lack of any sort of story is a bit disappointing, and at some point among the 30 levels, things do get a bit repetitive, but this is still a must-buy for anyone with a remote interest in the genre.

Battlehart: One Of The Best Games I Own

Battleheart is one of my favorite games on my iPhone and Kindle Fire. Battleheart has a fun atmosphere of defeating monsters and collecting various weapons and players. The Cartoon graphics give Battleheart a very kid friendly feel to it and make it even more enjoyable to play. I highly recomend Battleheart to anyone who likes to rid the world of monsters.
