Many has negative comments on the Brave Heroes game. One of the facts is that, unlike other games, the stages that you have defeated would "increase the level of difficulty" as well. Most of the players find this annoying as they couldn't (or very tough to) train the Heroes strong enough to face the coming just-unlocked stages. And hence, it seems that game is focusing on the "monetization" instead of the game play. BUT, IT DOESN'T.
So, this post is a Brave Heroes walkthrough to convince all of the would-be players (or on-going players) that, this game is really an interesting and working properly game which can provide a lot of fun without any money purchase, as long as you are a bit more patient.
Upgrading Hero is Essential
This makes sense. At the beginning stages (<10), you only have a Melee Hero "Balzac". Use all the money to upgrade as high as possible. Higher level means higher attack, attack speed, hit point, etc. One thing to mention, you should Enchant at least once on the weapon (Legendary Great Sword for Balzac Hero) to increase the chance of critical attack. I personally think the shield enchant is optional.
Our Army is negligibleI admit that they are adorable (especially their movement). But I have to frankly say that, their existence can serve nothing more than a few seconds buffer for the enemy invasion. My advice is, do not rely on them or upgrade them. In the Shop section, the only thing to upgrade is the "Gold", such that the stage clear reward can be increased.
Melee Hero is the best Leader
Purposely Lose is a strategy
Hence, the strategy is - to lose in a stage intentionally, through time-out. Within the period, kill as many enemy Heroes as possible (and the armies. Wait patiently for them to get spawned). Even though if you lose, you would still own the money. This is by far the most effective strategy to raise the level of the Hero and to earn money!
Killing an enemy Hero could reward you with about 200-500 experience, and up to few thousands gold (with the treasure). In the end, you could be able to rake in more than 15000 Gold (in my extreme case, 30000 Gold in a stage (20th) even though i lose in a stage!
Then you might ask, is it that easy to kill an enemy Hero? To do this, you have to understand 1 thing - the enemy Hero tends to escape when there is no army around. Therefore, to ensure the Hero stand 'stupidly' in front of you, you have to make some effort (timing) to let the enemy archer standing behind the enemy Hero. With this, even though they are running out of hit points, they are not going to escape and let you kill them. And then, for the Range enemy Heroes, you got to approach them (especially when they activate their skills) to attack them (assume you use the melee Hero such as the Penguin i mentioned).
So, any hassle of playing the Brave Heroes game again? Perhaps the only glitch is that, on and beyond the stage 10, the game starts getting slower (probably due to too much objects appearing). Hope that they can add a fast forward button to boost the speed whenever necessary.
