Do you enjoy hack-n-slash but longed for a bit more? Maybe you like tower defense games but find them a bit boring? Heldric is a unique mix of the same old styles of game with a few new twists. A hack-n-slash without endless level grinding. A tower defense game with more action. A game where you don't play as an epic hero, but as a humble shoemaker who must work together with his fellow villagers to defend their home. Build and upgrade the village quickly before the attack waves start. Each building you place adds unique abilities to not only the player's character, but your fellow villagers as well. You must choose your structures wisely, as there are only a limited amount of plots to build. Each villager contributes to your coin income and provides essential help in defending the town. You must help defend against waves of monsters intent on killing everyone. Do you have what it takes to survive?

Update to Heldric 1.1

So you asked for it, more monsters and variety. The latest update to Heldric 1.1 has a new terror that crawled out of the ground, spiders!

Heldric 1.1-5229 update

These eight legged, icky crawlers are out to ruin your day with a few special tricks. First, are the slower big tank-like spiders with high hit points and damage. But don’t think you’ll have an easy escape as they shoot out spider webs to trap their next meal. Next are the more toxic brethren that spit poison from long distance. And then there are the skinny and fast ones. These foes will leap across the map pouncing on any prey in range. All the while bypassing any strategic traps you might have placed in it’s way.

Heldric 1.1-5229 update

Heldric also got rid of the cat holding his tong by adding additional voices such as taking damage, death screams and several others. And have you ever built an obelisk and wondered what kind of range it had? Now you can see all the structures with their area of effect just by hovering your cursor over them in build mode.

Heldric 1.1-5229 update

You now have a reason to build lamps and wells. During the day, wells will add additional courage to all villagers around it. But at night, you’ll need to build area lamps or campfires to help keep courage up. Villagers now have 20% less courage on night maps, so build those light sources.

Finally, the minimap radar also got some improvements by new sort order for target. Enemies now appear on top of any villagers. Villagers icons are now smaller and less distracting.

Still want more? Check out the complete change log:
