Bringing what it calls the first multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game for mobile consoles to Android, Gameloft today released Heroes of Order and Chaos to the Play Store.

The game, a spinoff of the original Order and Chaos, takes place in a "unique fantasy setting" where players will join a battle that's been raging for centuries. It pits teams of three or five players against each other in one of two maps (depending on your party size), combining non-stop arena combat with RPG elements. Players can choose from 30 unique characters, six of which will be offered for free each week. Other characters can be acquired through in-app purchase, along with skill and equipment upgrades (that can also be earned in-game).

Heroes, for those times when you can't find four other people to go into battle with, also offers AI foes and companions.

    Very interested in how the gameplay works.. Most mobas use point n click movement and qwer for spells and abilities so this might get interesting.

    When will gameloft stop copying PC games? i dont say its a bad thing but it will be good if they come with something on their own as a change
    this game has Dota written all over it

      It's more LOL like than Dota

      • Chris Bozsik

        Aren't LOL and Dota the same thing? Same with HoN... they are all the same game with different graphics styles to me.

          Not really. Same idea in general, but they are very different in anything more than the broad ideas.

      When these companies come out with official apps of there own? Android is a great platform that is becoming more and more popular. Once the big companies start developing for PC/Console/Android then Gameloft wont be able to bring us beautiful clones.Until then bring it on.

    I've played this on the iPad and it is very similar to DoTA, Heroes of Newerth, or LoL. Because those games are wildly successful, it's no doubt reason why Gameloft has cloned the gameplay experience. As a fan of those games, I tried it out. Now to try it out on my Nexus 10.

    You use a virtual d-pad to maneuver your character, which can get a little tricky. I believe you cap out at level 15 instead of 25, and there is no "stats" level upgrade. Those familiar with the DoTA genre probably understand the rest of the basic gameplay. If you're brand new, don't worry I believe there's a semi-brief tutorial that you can't really skip.

    I did not attempt a real multiplayer game, I was afraid of borking up my team by using the wrong abilities. Tapping on things is the main problem with this game, against the somewhat bad AI, if you are moving, the enemy is moving, and you have to adjust the perspective to tap on things... ugh. You can easily miss kills that way.

    Nevertheless, it's free, and if you're a fan of any of the aforementioned games, you'll understand the gameplay and an hour or so and you'll understand the controls as well. It is at least worth a shot.

      No state gain? Interesting, no wonder I didn't see anything about it. Haven't got a chance to play much. How are things like HP gain/damage/attack speed determined? I play a lot of Dota 2.
