Call for Heroes - Review @ Out of Eight

by Dhruin, 23:38

3/8 is the score for Call for Heroes at Out of Eight.  Let's go straight to the summary, which states it plainly:

There are too many limitations in Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars to make it a worthwhile game. Yeah, it’s a budget title, but it should still be entertaining. Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars is one of the most boring role-playing games I’ve played: it is repetitive to a fault, as there is nothing to break up the monotony of killing brainless monsters. The rudimentary level design never results in surprises while playing the game to keep you interested in the story. Well, actually, there is no story or any interaction with any characters other than killing things. The game is short, there is no tutorial, you can’t save mid-mission, and the gameplay is bland. There is simple no reason to play Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars, even for a reduced price.

Call for Heroes - Review @ GameZone

by Dhruin, 00:46

A 5/10 is the score for Quotix' Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars in GameZone's review:

Somewhere deep inside in Quotix Software’s “Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars” (CfH) is the potential for an entertaining hack n’ slash fantasy romp, but that potential is crushed under the weight of the title’s downright frustrating gameplay mechanics, uninspiring visuals, and threadbare story.

Call for Heroes - Preview @ GameZone

by Dhruin, 00:13

A fairly perfunctory hands-on preview of Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars, although in fairness it doesn't sound as though there is much depth to cover:

Combat in the game is fairly simplistic, simply requiring you to press the attack button on the mouse as soon as an enemy gets close enough. You do have a secondary attack for some weapons, but the combat is nothing too brain-straining.

Call for Heroes - Demo #2

by Dhruin, 00:39

The promised second demo for Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars has been released offering a sample of gameplay featuring "the Amazon Girl" (no points for creativity but at least you know what you are getting).  The first demo didn't attract many positive comments but if this second still interests you, grab it at 3D Downloads, Fileshack or Gamers Hell.

Pompolic: Call of Heroes - Interview @ GameZone

by Dhruin, 23:51

The demo didn't garner much of a response but for anyone interested, there's a Call for Heroes interview at GameZone:

Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars is described as a "third-person action game with RPG elements." Several games have made that claim, so please explain what that means to this particular project. 

Attila Siladji: The game features a heavy emphasis on combat which requires quick action and reflexes from the player. Also, there is a basic character development system. By killing monsters the player gains experience. Three basic characteristics can be upgraded: strength, armor and health. In addition to this, with each upgrade the player can choose a new special ability. Weapons are also gaining levels. During the game the AI will keep statistics for each weapon (hits, kills). The more skilled the character becomes with a weapon, the chances to make critical or fatal hits increases. With a critical hit the weapon makes double or quad damage, and with a fatal hit – as you guess – kills instantly the enemy.
