Brilliant strategy games live on Too many of us old gamers are exhausted sifting through all the multiplayer & pay-to-win games, when all we want sometimes is a good old fashioned challenge. Hoplite gets it done! The complexity & replayability are astounding, considering how basic Hoplite might appear at first glance! After an hour of pure enjoyment, I purchased the premium upgrade as a thanks to to developers. The added unlockable skills greatly vary the replayability, & I can't suggest highly enough.
Hoplite is my personal favourite in the store. It can be played forever, makes one think and yet it's pace is relaxed. Very light-weight and remembers game progress: perfect for playing whenever and for however long. Completely ad-free. Offers tons of content for free and blows one's mind with the quantity of additional content for a low-priced, single-time purchase. Well worth it! :)
Short fun Returned the fleece on the second run. Required some thinking though, so its still cool. Love the mechanics! But i dont see the appeal of purchasing in order to unlock extra skills for making further descends viable. Everything past the fleece just seems to be arcade-style 'see how deep you can get', and that just seems pointless to me. Lacking content there, from my perspective.
Smart, Tough & Addictive Love Hoplite! Clever design with a steady difficulty curve. Occasional bug in the random level generator, where you or your spear are stranded if you run out of energy, but not a showstopper by any means. Free version is pretty much the complete game (with no ads or microtransactions), but happy to pay the premium for unlocking achievements and challenge mode.
Simple pixel art aesthetics, simple rules with tons of depth, huge replayability, highly addicting, no randomness, never nagged for money..what more to ask? You never feel cheated in this game, every death is your own fault, learning how to not die is natural and progressive. Nice challenges and achievements. Really. A great game, highly recommended.
My favourite game :D It's a great strategy game! The tutorial needs a tiny expansion though. An explanation about the combat sequence would make world of difference for new players. Most people that give a bad rating don't understand the game's combat mechanics and you need to get used to it. My tip to make things easier: turn on fat finger mode in the opinions menu.
