Serbia-based mobile game developer Nordeus, the same studio behind the online football game “Top Eleven,” has just released a new title that is worlds away from sports and football. Titled “Heroic - Magic Duel,” this is a fast-paced strategy game that is currently available for Android and iOS users across the globe. The developer has also published a spectacular trailer for the game to celebrate its launch, check it out below:

From the trailer, it can be seen that Heroic has opted to go for a grimmer, more serious setting as opposed to the cartoony art style of some other popular games in this genre such as Clash of Clans. The gameplay is more intense as well, putting your skills, tactical geniuses, and reflex to the test as you battle against another player in “dynamic, lightning-paced, adrenaline-fuelled” battles that last up to 3 minutes.

Heroic - Magic Duel gameplay preview

The basic idea is pretty simple: Before entering a match, you choose your favorite hero from 5 available options, and select 2 spells (which are exclusive to each hero) to equip. Afterward, you pick up to 50 minions to build a deck that best suits your strategy.

During combat, there will be 3 lanes connecting you and your opponent, at either end of which are portals. Minions will spawn from these portals and meet at the middle of the lanes to battle it out. If your minions manage to kill all enemy minions, they will continue to progress down the lane and start hammering at your opponent’s portals, damaging their health. When their health is reduced to zero, their portals are destroyed and you win the match. Thus, it’s your job to assist your units by deploying them strategically and using hero spells at the opportune moments.

Heroic Boss
The game also features challenging raid bosses

Aside from PvP battles, the game also features Boss Raids, which is pretty uncommon for a strategy game. With this, you can join a guild to conquer challenging bosses with your guildmates.

Nordeus also promised that it’d continue to expand the local and global leaderboards, as well as update live events to add daily challenges and prizes.

Heroic - Magic Duel is currently available on both Google Play and the App Store.
