Welcome to the Halcyon Fold. Today I’m going to write a review about the best mobile multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game I have played, still playing, Vainglory!
This game not only getting a score of 4.3 over 5.0 in Google Play and Apps Store but as a MOBA game designed for mobile platforms, it is really the best!
The game is developed and published by Super Evil Megacorp. The game has been released for a while on iOS, November 16, 2014 then later released on Android, July 2, 2015.
How the Game Works?
Have you ever played DOTA? Yes, basically that’s how the game works. It is a simplified version of the PC-based genre wherein two opposing teams of three players fight to destroy the enemy base by controlling the path between the bases, which is lined by turrets and guarded by enemy minions. Off the path, players where will be play as Hero will battle for control points that supply extra resources.
Yes unlike DOTA, this game is 3 on 3 multiplayer battles and the players will have to defend their base in one lane each. The game also has some same features such as Jungle, Jungle Monsters, the Jungle Shop, and Kraken (Roshan).
Play with only your Fingers, Super-Easy to Control
Since it was a mobile platform MOBA game, yes, you can just control the movement of your Hero with only your fingers! If you want to hit your enemy minions or heroes, just tap on it. Super-Easy. If you want to activate your skills or abilities where unlike DOTA provides 4 skills, the game make a smaller scale into 3 tapable skills.

History of Vainglory’s Development
In February 2012, game developer “veterans” from Rockstar, Riot, Blizzard, and Insomniac founded Super Evil Megacorp in San Mateo, California to make a MOBA game for tablet devices, and thus began development on their first game, Vainglory. No wonder the game seems a lot like the most famous PC MOBA game.
As the game getting better, Apple chose the game to demonstrate the graphics capabilities of their iPhone 6 and Metal graphics API at the iPhone 6’s announcement event. The game was soft-launched for six months prior to this September 2014 event, and was released on November 16, 2014.
Interesting Heroes Character
There are current got 26 playable Heroes in the game. The heroes are divided into 5 types, Mage, Assassin, Sniper, Protector and Warrior. While in the game, heroes will be categories into 3 roles, Lane, Jungle and Roam. Lane role basically is suitable for Heroes with range attack. While Jungle role can be suitable with any type of Heroes but best play by Heroes with melee attack and Roam is meant for Protector Heroes. Each character also well created, for their identity, skills, lores and skins. Each skin can be upgrade up to third tier, as on the third tier your hero will be given some special effects during the game.
In each updates, the game will introduces new Hero into the game or new Hero’s skin. Hero’s skin can be collected thru cards or buy it with cash after convert your money into Ice, your purchasing coins in the game.

Best Compatibility Device to Play
I would highly recommend you guys to play the game on devices with at less 3Gb of RAM since the graphics capabilities of the game is kinda high if you are an Android user. I played with Samsung Galaxy Note 3 before and the game works just fine. However not on iPhone 4s, the game usually got lag and crash sometimes. The bigger your screen, the better. I have seen some my friends play with iPad and the game works really good! If you are an Apple user, I would recommend you guys to play with iPhone 6 and above, and of course for tablet – iPad mini or iPad Pro!
Download the game on http://www.vainglorygame.com/game/ or on your Play Store/Apps Store.
