Hero Conquest is a new Facebook title from Broken Bulb Studios, creators of the popular Pokemon-esque Miscrits series. The game is a turn-based strategy title that targets a "mid-core" market somewhere between casual fans of titles like FarmVille and those looking for something a little deeper.

In Hero Conquest, player alternates turns with computer-controlled opponents on a large, two-dimensional, top-down map. On any given turn, the player may move one of their units or attack an enemy, but not both. The enemy then gets to do the same thing, and the cycle repeats.
As the players move around the map, they "conquer" each square, lighting it up and opening it up either for building or for deploying new heroes. Some squares are damaged, meaning they must be repaired before building on them. Buildings are used to produce new heroes or fill a "health pool", which can subsequently used to heal injured heroes in the field. As the game progresses, players gain access to additional facilities which allow for more varied types of hero to be produced, opening up a wider array of tactical options.
