In the first collaboration between publisher Ayopa Games and indie developer F5 Games, Pocket Heroes offers deep, rewarding, and fun RPG quests, and ups the ante by adding social, cooperative play to the mix, creating a rich multiplayer-only cooperative RPG for iPhone and iPod Touch. As an exclusively social experience, Pocket Heroes will reward players for playing with friends, with bigger bonuses for bigger parties. Add in classic RPG elements like leveling, unique classes, and tons of gear and loot, and you have a winning formula for mobile gamers eager to take their role-playing social.
Pocket Heroes is the only cooperative multiplayer RPG built for the iPhone that lets you quest with friends on an epic fantasy adventure without a large time commitment.”
