There might be a lot of turn-based strategy titles on the market, but a few do it like Wonderhero. The title features an exciting turn-based strategy gameplay and your every decision will determine the outcome of the battle. Control up to 4 different heroes in a team, use their unique skills and a wide variety of equipment to deploy your own strategy on the battlefield.
Wonderhero takes place on Earth following a massive nuclear war where the radiation has affected our daily lives and left us no choice but to move and inhabit the massive space station, Icarus VI. A few generations later, the Hero Academy decided to send its best students on a recon mission to Earth and the creatures now present on the planet we once lived on aren’t keen on welcoming us back. It is now your duty to help the Hero Academy players navigate Earth and clear the enemies standing in the way of our return.
Wonderhero makes sure to cater to both PVP and PVE players. The aforementioned lore is enough to pull in any player to dive deeper into its PVE mode. Regardless of mode, players get to assemble their team out of 17 heroes. Each with their own style of combat from frontline medic to tankers or attackers.
The number of possible combinations of weapons, elements, and equipment can keep you theorizing for hours on the optimal build.
There are almost over a 100 possible variations of each hero, mainly due to the presence of over 400 different equipment to collect, including hero-specific and equipment sets which grant powerful and unique abilities.
Wonderhero has its cult following and loyal playerbase and for good reason. The game brings almost an unparalleled level of complexity and possible combinations with your characters but its downfall is having all these elements gated behind NFTs.
This leaves a sour taste for players exploring new games to dive into and the need to buy three characters just to play Wonderhero is a tall task even if it turns out to be great. Once this barrier is lifted, there is no doubt the game is poised to draw in heaps of new players to at least give it a try.

The need to buy three characters just to play the game is a tall task that puts off newcomers from giving the game a try even if they are confident they are going to like it.
Almost endless character customization
Complex gameplay mechanics
Very compelling lore
Multiple modes to enjoy
Have to purchase 6 NFTs to start
Relatively steep learning curve
Lackluster PVP ranking system
