The gaming community has been seeing a steady stream of Star Wars-related games ever since Disney acquired the rights to the franchise in 2012. From tower defense titles like Galactic Defense to RPGs like Uprising, there seems to be a Star Wars game for every subgenera you can think of.
The collectible card game subgenre is one of many that has been targeted by Disney, with Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. It is a turn-based mobile collectible card game that lets you, well, collect different Star Wars characters, train them, and battle your way through different settings in the universe. You might think that that sounds tired and boring, but it’s not. Seriously. It’s actually one of the more fun Star Wars mobile games out there, and here are some reasons why:
You can mix and match different characters from the universe
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have both Darth Vader and Chewbacca playing for the same team? Look no further! One of the best features of Galaxy of Heroes is the massive amount of characters that you can collect. And really, you’re going to have to mix and match these characters because each of them have their own strengths and weaknesses, and you have to figure out which combination would be best in different battle scenarios.
You get to train and upgrade your characters
Of course, you only get so far in-game with characters that have basic abilities. If you really want to dominate the game, you can train and upgrade your characters. Training them requires resources that you can gather by winning battles, and upgrading would let you unlock even more powerful abilities to make your winning streak even better.
It’s not too time-consuming and difficult
A game that both takes and insane amount of time and brainpower to play can get pretty boring and exhausting after a while. Thankfully, Galaxy of Heroes doesn’t do that. While some strategize and time are required from you, you wouldn’t need to devote too much of yourself in order to play and enjoy the game. Because what’s the point of playing a game if it gets too tedious, right?
All in all, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is a very welcome entry to the ever-expanding game universe of the franchise. Although not as complicated as Uprising or easy as Galactic Defense, Galaxy of Heroes sits in a very comfortable place in the spectrum of the Star Wars universe. Happy playing!
