8-Bit Hordes 

 

One I thought we had already reviewed it. Why did I have this thought? 8-Bit Hordes is in essence the same game as 8-Bit Armies with one major difference. What is that major difference? The major difference is 8-Bit Hordes has a fantasy theme to it. The graphics are similar, the menu screens are similar, and the music is similar.

The modes in 8-Bit Hordes are exactly the same. The modes are Game Manual, Campaign, Co-op Campaign, Skirmish, Multiplayer, Options, and Language. We play as either Deathsworn or Lightbringers in 8-Bit Hordes. There are twenty-four normal (offline) missions in 8-Bit Hordes, and there are twelve online ones. Those that play multiplayer can fight against other 8-Bit Hordes players or 8-Bit Armies players.

The tutorial must be played in 8-Bit Hordes. I did not mind learning how to play this game since what it showed me is rather essential to surviving. Each unit needs food so having farms is very important in 8-Bit Hordes. We can upgrade things like buildings in 8-Bit Hordes. The text is still small in this franchise. Most people playing 8-Bit Hordes had to get closer to the television than other console video games.

8-Bit Hordes contains violent content since we fight off the opposing army with our troops. Expect to find mythical creatures in 8-Bit Hordes as well. I really like the Wyverns personally. They gave me great air support and visibility into what was right around the corner. The main concept in this real time strategy (RTS) video game can be found in 8-Bit Hordes. Build up resources with mine carts, purchase barracks, build farms, and then create troops. From there overwhelm your enemy with numbers.

RTS gamers into retro graphics can have fun with 8-Bit Hordes. I noticed a variety of different fantasy franchises being referenced in 8-Bit Hordes. I will not spoil it for you though. 8-Bit Hordes is a large download - over three gigs. I would love to see a physical copy edition that included 8-Bit Hordes and 8-Bit Armies. That would be a neat little compilation pack if you know what I mean.
