Apple Games Features Heroes Of Newerth
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has published a new feature article focusing on S2 Games' multiplayer fantasy war game, Heroes of Newerth. The article includes an overview of the game's features, an explanation of the title's setting, details about HoN's game modes, and some helpful links for those looking to improve their strategies.

As you kill creeps and opposing Heroes and destroy enemy towers and barracks, you accumulate additional wealth, along with experience points. The more gold you earn, the better the items you can buy, and ever-increasing experience points allow your Hero to ascend levels, from first through 25th, and become more powerful. Heroes fall under three main types — agile, strong, or intelligent — that play different roles, although some may offer a mix of the three.

To ensure maximum gold and experience for you and as little as possible for the opposition, be sure to master the concepts of last-hitting and denying: the former involves striking a creep, barracks, or tower just as its health is about to hit zero, allowing you to reap the rewards; the latter involves doing the same to your side’s defenses so the enemy gains nothing from their defeat. (Hold down the A key when you click an allied creep, tower, or barracks to strike it.)

Each side’s creeps come in two types, ranged and melee, and emerge from the appropriate barracks, growing stronger as a match progresses. When your team destroys an enemy barracks, your creeps of that type become more powerful; when all enemy barracks crumble into dust, your side gains high-level creeps that quickly turn the tide of battle in your favor. Neutral creeps also roam each map, offering opportunities to gain extra gold and experience; just don’t assume they offer easy kills, as some of them can go toe-to-toe with the toughest Heroes.
