Heroes & Outlaws features a unique tower defense gameplay, allowing a player to take control of both tower building and offensive heroes at the same time.
The game requires the player to be focused on repulsing waves of enemy using heroes to engage and towers for extra defense. Heavy roleplay mechanics are built into the game, so in order to progress through the exotic levels, players must make choices and assemble a hand-crafted team of heroes each with different skills, levels, and equipment. The heroes must be upgraded and leveled to handle the increased difficulties as player progresses.
To date, the game had acquired over 3 million downloads globally, and reached top of the charts in most of Asia.
