Thanks to groundbreaking games like Vainglory, we’ve known for a long time that the best way to play a MOBA is on a touchscreen device. But Vainglory is getting on a bit, and perhaps you’re ready for a new contender.
Battle Arena: Heroes Adventure (BAHA) is that contender. Red Brix Wall’s brand new action-RPG MOBA is the next leap forward in MOBA design, letting you take on humans and AI alike in a gorgeous fantasy world.
BAHA (we’re not sure if the title’s resemblance to an evil laugh is deliberate) gives you an incredible 50 different heroes to play with. And we really do mean different. They range from killer robots to berserk gnomes, all full of character and beautifully drawn.
As you’d expect, each one has its own attributes, making it good in certain situation and bad in others. In addition, each hero has a particular ability and goal, and they all gradually level up and collect skill points through battle.
Success means selecting a well-balanced platoon of heroes and deploying their abilities judiciously. Tactics rule, and if you know your squad’s strengths, weaknesses, abilities, and when to use them, you be able to crush even a powerful opponent.
Of course, opponents come in two flavours: real and AI. The PvP arena is where you’ll come up against real players, and here you can choose to battle opponents at differing levels of ability, pushing yourself or taking it easy as you see fit.
There’s also a clan system, which is already bustling with players. You can join an existing clan or create your own, like a megalomaniac. Either way, there are tons of perks, including gameplay rewards, training, the ability to find friends by location and interests, and more.
And there’s a massive single player campaign to barge your way through, taking in diverse environments that include forest and faraway planet. Plus, there are some challenging boss stages. It’s all good practice for the PvP arena.
There are even alliance clan events which see heroes sharing with alliance members – naturally they’re a great way to strengthen friendships in-game.
BAHA features pretty graphics, heaps of content, and a reassuring emphasis on skill and tactics over blindly leveling up.
