About this game
Content Rating: Teen
You're invited to a magical resort where anyone can be a hero—except for you. You just work there! Luckily, it's on an island where dreams come true...for a price. As a tour guide, your job is to lead "heroes" safely through the theme park's dungeons. Customize strategies, repair weapons, and manage items to survive! Recruit over 20 quirky characters, including upright knights, phantom thieves, high school girls, and one casually nihilistic otter/man. Meet and defeat a colorful cast of coworkers such as monstrous mascots, cute li'l slugs, selfie-loving skeletons, and magical broccoli! Behold the splendor of 2D sprites that have been turned, alchemy-like, into 3D models who bend and stretch through THE THIRD DIMENSION! Conjured from your 16-bit dreams by the legends of retro Japanese RPGs, this whimsical tale of princes and part-timers guarantees excitement that cannot be forgotten.

Heroland may be a supremely charming and genuinely funny experience yet its minimal gameplay eventually makes it a chore to play.
Even when it's not sounding like an improv group at a Bernie Sanders rally, Heroland is a gem. It's incredibly funny, the characters are some of the most charming I met all year, and its unique take on turn-based battles made a strategist out of me. I just wish I didn't need to do so much grinding to see the game through to the end.
Heroland relies far too much on the style over substance, and while I do really enjoy the style, especially the Paper Mario-esque pixelated characters, I’m let down by how unsatisfying the game is overall. It’s imminently cute with a solid sense of humor that just unravels into a slog of an adventure that is mostly worth it for the charm of the presentation and not much else.
