Hero Mages from D20 Studios is one of the more detailed and deep turn-based strategy RPG titles to come out for mobile. It has already won a fair amount of awards for the technical aspects of the game and is even getting a physical board game released by Game Salute which is pretty much the first time a mobile game, Android or otherwise, has become an actual board game. There are plenty of mobile games that are existing board games but not the other way around.

Usually when we talk about a board game being converted over to a mobile format for Android. However, we get to report on the exact opposite of that for a change which is also highly unusual. D20 Studios, developers of the popular multiplayer strategy game Hero Mages, has just been picked up by Game Salute and will have Hero Mages published as an actual board game.
Back in November we announced that Hero Mages by D20 Studios was finally available on the Android Market. This is a cross-platform multiplayer tactical strategy game that also blends in elements of RPG (leveling, items, etc) as well. This particular title is rather detailed as well as it includes things such as LOS (Line-of-sight) and other features normally not included in these types of games.
D20 Studios developed this gem of a game and it’s pretty under-the-radar. I don’t think I would have even known about this game if DroidGamers hadn’t mentioned it before I started homing my blogging craft (which is very much a work in progress). So I decided to take the game for a spin, and I’m absolutely glad I did.
