Fun iPad game gets some much needed single player action
Hero Academy is a fun game but I found it hard to find opponents who were interested in playing. A new update solves this problem as it adds 28 single player challenges. If you enjoy rubbing an opponent's nose in their imminent defeat, the taunt system has also been updated.
Read on for more details
The 28 single player challenges cover all of the available teams in the game regardless of whether or not you have purchased them in game. I appreciate this, especially as it gives an opportunity to try the different styles out without parting with any cash.
The challenges are quite tricky so they won't be over in half an hour. They force you to think about the whole game including the team special abilities and the various bonus tiles on the game board.
Taunts must now be earned through winning matches rather than simply bought with money, so you really must be able to back up your brags.
There are also five more iPad Game Centre achievements if you want more bragging rights. Download Hero Academy from our review here.
