Villagers and Heroes releases for iOS mobile devices

    
10

Cross-platform MMO Villagers and Heroes made a leap to another platform this week with the release of the game for the app store. This means that iOS devices can now pick up and join the fun along with the Android and PC crowd.

Mad Otter Games opened up a new server — US3 — to handle the influx of new players. It should be noted that unlike some mobile spinoffs of MMOs, Villagers and Heroes for iOS is the same full version that PC players enjoy, albeit with modified controls and UI to accommodate touchscreen devices.

Villagers and Heroes put out Patch 4.8 late last month with movement changes, a ranchable boar, and two new high-level zones. The iOS release includes the recent Starfall overhaul and offers eight class builds, 10 crafting professions, over 1,000 quests, and player housing.

So who’s picking this up this week?

Do Android, iOS, and PC players all play together on same servers?

Yup. The main trick, iirc, is that you can’t use your Steam account on mobile – but you can use a native V&H/non-Steam account and play that on both mobile and PC.

This seems interesting on paper, but I can’t seem to find info about the revenue model for it. Is it B2P, subscription, cash shop, what? All I see on the website that somewhat relates to pricing is a tab to “Buy Crowns,” which sounds like a cash shop currency, but you can’t see any details without creating an account.

Also, is it at all plausible to play it on an iPhone 5, or is it only realistic on a tablet or one of the much larger new phones?

It’s F2P with a cash shop – the model has changed over time; it used to be much more pay-to-win/pay-to-play (like with a resource timer, even on PC) than it is now. I couldn’t tell you about how it plays on iOS, but I was able to get it to run on my old LG G2 (but that got hot in a hurry) and on my Pixel 2 XL ofc now.

I tried the mobile version and it was good, but nothing special. I felt that the PC version feels more natural than the mobile version and I couldn’t get into it.

If you love the game on PC, its great to be able to take it with you anywhere you go!

Could have been great but this game is SUPER P2W. I have a 1st Reborn Character with basically all the Enchants from the shop. It will not help you. You also MUST REBIRTH Multiple Times and you have to max out Star Ranks on just about every recipe. STAY AWAY! Do not be fooled by how fun the crafting is at the start. There are no more Areas like Lake Kiwa in the game.

A friend of mine tried and said its the best mobile mmo he’s played so far. I might try it on my Android since he got it for ios so we can play together.
