JOYCITY’s latest RPG Hero Ball Z is a character collector that literally requires you to form a team by bringing together the best heroes. Oh, and you stick all these guys in a ball, like some other franchise you might of heard of. The characters become stronger when you merge them and become someone new. Characters grow stronger from different tiers of novice to the final form of the super powerful hero. Your end goal is to build the best team and save the world from certain destruction.
Similar to other RPGs, all Hero Ball Z characters have unique backstories which make them relatable. This game uses Alice from Wonderland as a hero like SINoALICE and gives her a worn teddy bear. Characters even have distinct moves and special animations to go along with their overall look.
While you’re in charge of the merging, the characters are idle shooters. Players have to place them in strategic positions to get the best use of the varying types of ammo available. The better the novice, the more potent their attack, and you’ll continually go back to your hero ball for more backup.
Even though the text is what tells the story, the audio and graphics do their part in energizing you while you’re fighting through levels and regions. There’s even Auto Play so you can sit back watch the game as though it were an action movie.
Overall players are saying JOYCITY’s gacha game is addicting. The aesthetic, music, and fast pace has people playing longer than expected. Is this RPG worth getting lost in? Keep a lookout for an upcoming HD review.
