Play OverviewPlay Overview

Rivengard (2021) is a strategy battle game where you fight creatures with fantasy superheroes. You upgrade your team to make them as powerful as possible then use them in turn-based encounters requiring tactical prowess. Progress can be sped up by spending real money.

Your aim is to collect heroes and to defeat evil creatures such as goblins, elves, and dwarves taking over Rivengard. You takes turn to move your characters towards the enemy team and attack. Similar to chess, your character can go a limited number of spaces forward based on their power and character features.

The heroes have different attacks. Some are ranged with magic or bows being able to hit the enemies from further away, while others like swords are for close combat. Each hero also has a signature power move that can be used once each battle.

You pick your best characters to play each round and choose strategic starting positions. You attack the opposite team by moving your hero towards them into the nearby hexagons and aim your attack at the space the enemy is on. The key to winning is carefully deciding which enemy to attack to inflict the most damage.

You use coins to improve the health, range, movement, and damage of your heroes and to upgrade their weapons. As you progress through the levels you earn tokens which you use to unlock new heroes to play with.

Although the game is free, you are limited in how often you can play unless you buy diamonds with real money to gain more goes. You can also advance more quickly by spending money to get coins and upgrade your heroes faster.
