The hunt for the Next Big Thing is endless, and we spend a solid portion of our working lives trying to find the game that everybody will be playing next before everybody else finds it.
From that point of view, Omniheroes is a gift. There’s absolutely no doubt in our minds that this stunning, innovative, superbly balanced idle RPG from developer OmniDream Games is going to be a household name in the next few months.
What truly sets Omniheroes apart is its fusion of art styles – a harmonious marriage between light and dark aesthetics. The result is a visually captivating experience that immerses players in a world of beauty and depth. But this is just the tip of the iceberg; the game’s true allure lies in its innovative Hero Bond system. Drawing inspiration from popular auto battler games, this mechanic challenges players to strategically assemble squads of OmniGuardians, unleashing synergistic effects that can turn the tide of battle.
Before we tell you exactly why, here’s a quick refresher for those of you who missed out on the pre-registration campaign—which, by the way, hit well over 1 million sign-ups, allowing all the players to feast on in-game rewards worth more than 15,000 Diamonds and 777 summons guaranteed.
Back to the game.
Omniheroes is set in a fantasy realm inhabited by five warring factions: Empire, Eclipse, Woodland, Demons, and Divine.
These five factions were happily locked in a multipolar conflict until an unspeakable evil showed up and sent them all running for the hills. Only Eve, the Creator, had the power to defeat this terrible interloper, and the effort propelled her into a state of perpetual slumber.
That’s where you come in. Playing as Odysseus, Eve’s apostle, you need to summon more than 100 heroes across the five factions, compile them into teams, and send them into battle in a range of singleplayer and multiplayer modes.
So far so good.
Now we’re going to tell you what makes Omniheroes great.
We’ll start with the Valkyries. Summoning heroes is nothing new in mobile RPGs, but we’ve never seen a game invest this much in terms of backstory, characterization, and sheer visual splendor.
There are 7 Valkyries to collect, and each of them has her own history and identity.
Arkdina is a Vengeance Valkyrie from the Demon faction who earned her demon wings by pledging herself to the forces of darkness. Her goal: “to infect everything in the world with chaos”.
Eluller, in stark contrast, is a goody two shoes through and through. Sister to the legendary General Athena, she has struggled in the past with being in somebody else’s shadow. This sent her on a voyage of self-discovery, but she was happy to cut her trip short when the demons invaded.
We’ve barely scratched the surface, but this should give you an inkling of the level of variety and biographical detail on display.
The artwork is just as impressive. While Omniheroes uses a crisp, stylish 2D graphical style for the gameplay, each of the Valkyries exists as an impossibly slick, lifelike 3D model that you can visit at Valkyrie Manor.
The purpose of these visits is to heal and bond with your Valkyries, unlocking their charisma in the process. But the experience is a joy in itself thanks to the stunning graphics and rich, varied costume design.
Omniheroes just does a fantastic job of bringing its heroes to life.
Gameplay is important too, of course, and we’re just as impressed with the way Omniheroes balances accessibility and depth.
If you’re not a fan of poring over stats, deciding how to spend resources, and tweaking formations, you’ll be delighted to learn that Omniheroes pretty much gives you a pass on all of that stuff.
Battles play out automatically, and swapping Valkyries in and out is a matter of tapping an icon.
There are one-tap upgrades, too, so you can level up and get back onto the battlefield in moments. Plus, your party is always taking down enemies and hoovering up loot in the background, letting you amass a fortune and make progress AFK.
All of which makes Omniheroes ideal for casual players. But here’s the thing: it’s ideal for serious players too, with a huge variety of tactical options to explore by experimenting with the innovative synergies system.
This lets you combine Valkyrie, Faction, and Rune synergies to create more than 100 hero team comps with stacked battle buffs. If you pay attention to anything, we recommend you pay attention to the synergies at your disposal, because the power you can unlock is immense.
While we’re making recommendations, it’s also well worth joining a guild to take advantage of a massive extra stream of chests, XP, and loot.
Google Play’s recognition through a global feature recommendation has given Omniheroes an unparalleled edge in the gaming arena.
There’s a ton of stuff to keep you occupied in Omniheroes, so you’d better make a start right now.
