I have accidentally stumbled upon this wonderful game and now I find myself hooked – oh, if only I’d have enough time to play all the games I love! But Heroes of Gaia is not at the top of my priorities list and wins the free flash game of the day award, even though we might argue regarding it’s “nature” – which is more of a MMO than a regular flash game.
However, unlike most of the other MMOs, Heroes of Gaia is a flash game and you can play the game entirely in your browser, without downloading any client. The main thing that you will remark – and the one that made me love it – is that Heroes of Gaia looks, feels and eventually is a lot like another “Heroes” series – the Heroes of Might and Magic series.
We have a similar view of the castle, we need a tavern to hire Heroes, we train troops and explore a world map that, one again, will remind fans of the old HoMM series. And that’s really not a bad thing – on the contrary.
Add to that some really nice tactical battles in which you control the troops you have created (or let the AI do it for you and lose the fun factor), the ability to declare war to other players and attack them, the option of joining guilds and battling for impressive artifacts and so on and so forth. Basically, we could say that Heroes of Gaia is a Heroes of Might and Magic MMO, even though there’s no official connection between the two titles.
The best parts are that HoG is a free to play game that requires absolutely no downloads and looks simply amazing. It’s a title you’ll certainly get hooked to, especially if you enjoy the HoMM series. Therefore, please do yourself a favor and click this link to play Heroes of Gaia. Have fun!
