Back in June, the action RPG Heroes Call THD hit the market for all Tegra devices. Naturally, the development team wants to get their game out for as many devices as possible, and as of today, it officially supports all Android device.

1 2 3

Much like Dead Trigger, the game can be installed on basically any Android device, and supports enhanced graphic effect for those running the Tegra 3 chip. Otherwise, the game is same across all devices, and it looks like a winner:

Not only is the game now available for all devices, but it also received a pretty major update for those who already play:

Our biggest update yet:
•The Shadow Assassin emerges from darkness!
•Take on the ultimate challenge and start a HARD MODE character.
•You asked, we've delivered - gem currency removed - all purchases now made with gold. If you had gems, we've turned them into gold. Lots of gold.
•Replay missions earns much more gold and gear.
•Story missions now play out linearly and make more sense.
Everything we've added you asked for - keep the feedback coming!

The game is completely free, so hit the widget below and give it a shot.

    what's the catch this time?

      It's freemium, isn't it?

      • Cheeseball

        It's got the freemium model like Dead Trigger. You can buy everything with gold that you can either get as drops or through IAP. They fixed it (from the Gold + Gems system) due to demand.

          Is it playable/winnable w/o purchasing IAPs? I don't mind the freemium model, but it's super-annoying if you can't get very far w/o paying anyway.

          Edit: That said, if you think of it as a demo, it makes it seem better :)

          • Cheeseball

            Yes, but like any other freemium game, it does get hard (but not impossible) once you level up more and more.

          • Himmat Singh

            Yes, mate. I did a review on this Droidgamers yesterday. The IAP model has been totally revamped for good. I finished the campaign for the first character w/o divulging into IAPs. I then spent 0.99 to buy a second character, and support the devs. Gave it a 4.5/5.

          I hate the freemium business model! I just want to buy my game and play it without paying more for the ingame currency and powerups. Sadly as great as Dead Trigger is, it's a killer for me.

          Why is everything freemium in the mobile world?

          • Cheeseball

            No one is forcing you to pay for the powerups and/or currency in both Dead Trigger and Heroes' Call. You can earn everything just by playing the game.

            The game tends to be absurdly hard or awkward without premium content. So I tend to resort to hex editing with GameGuardian.

            It doesn't work with Dead Trigger, but with Contract Killer and Six Guns it works a treat!

    Its Like Soulcraft/Dungeon Hunter 3

    We need to stop with this Tegra-exclusive apps/effects bull****. Seriously, it pisses me off that my Galaxy S3, which is more powerful than any Tegra 3 device, is effectively prevented from using these enhanced effects and even some games. Yeah, on some games I can mess around with the data files to enable them, but that shouldn't be the case.

    • flurp

      Haha, no it's not.

      • GraveUypo

        prove him wrong.
        not to mention this crap usually get full effects on iphone 4s and ipad 2. it's just nvidia money talking.

    • http://twitter.com/misterE33 Mr E

      Agreed, but I like the trend with Dead Trigger [and others] that, when they do come out for other devices, have all the extra effects. The "THD"-specific versions are frustrating.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

      I would agree with you, but Chainfire3D is so effective for me that I don't worry about it! XD

      You do have root right?

      • Me

        What plugin did you use? And how?

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

          I used the full version of Chainfire3D and the NVIDIA plugin. I set it all up in 2 minutes or so on my Galaxy S II and now I can play Tegra 2 games on my phone. Including games which are exclusive to Tegra like Pinball for Tegra!

    This isn't really news... Heroes Call is just another in a long line of games that promise a rich experience but really wouldn't fly if it weren't for the sorry state of game development on mobile platforms. It's time we stopped thinking of "mobile games" as a magic phrase that gets people to lower their standards. Should we expect a 360 or a PS3 or a modern AAA PC title to work on a Galaxy SIII or a Tegra 3 tablet? Of course not. But there's no excuse for games not being at least as good as what can be found on the 3DS.

    This is not compatible with Samsung Galaxy S2. Am I missing something here?

    • Me

      And just as I posted that, it becomes compatible. Sorry for the misinformation everyone.
