What is Celtic Heroes?
Celtic Heroes is a MMORPG that is free to play on Android. It features a lot of questing, some multiplayer features, and pretty decent graphics. It’s based around Celtic mythology so many of the quests, story lines, and characters revolve around that premise.
The game play is fairly straightforward. You use the left thumb to move the character and the right thumb to move the screen. It’s admittedly a little clumsy feeling at first but you get used to it pretty quickly. Celtic Heroes takes place in a pretty big world that you can explore and play around at your leisure. It’s actually pretty impressive for a mobile game in terms of size and scope.
In terms of multiplayer, you can communicate with others via in game chat or through a built-in set of actions like waving, jumping, or giving someone a thumbs down. You can also add friends, join clans, and travel in groups to go questing together. There is even a trade system where you can trade equipment and items. There was a huge opportunity here for Google Play Games services that we felt Celtic Heroes missed out on but the multiplayer experience was still solid.
During my playthrough, the quests seemed fairly straight forward. You go places to do things or kill things to earn stuff. There wasn’t all that much imagination in the setting up of quests and the story line is pretty bare bones. It’s pretty clear that the big pull of this game is playing with friends and dueling PvP style. The story line or quests aren’t unpleasant but like many MMORPGs, you just get kinda tired of them after a while.
