BonusXP and Robot Entertainment join forces for Hero Academy 2

Hero Academy 2, the follow up to the 2011 hit original tactics game has gone live on Android, iOS and early access on PC and Mac. The sequel to the award winning 2011 original has been developed by BonusXP working with Robot Entertainment- a collaboration of two studios from an Ensemble Studios background! As one can no doubt imagine, the game looks great and is currently receiving great reviews on the Android and iOS stores.

For BonusXP this is yet another release of a new game in a short space of time having rcently released the critcally aclaimed Stranger Things mobile game a few months earlier. Dave Pottinger, Founder of BonusXP writes on the studios blog:

Robot has been a fantastic partner along the way; the trust they showed us every single day was impressive and humbling. Bonus didn’t set out to really do licensed games, but between Hero Academy 2 and Stranger Things: The Game (a little game that we released 3.5 months ago with 7.5M downloads and has a 4.8+ rating on both app stores), I guess we’ve figured out how to do a good job with other studios’ IP.

What’s new

The original, award winning Hero Academy was a great formula and the sequel is set to take this to the next level. The most notable change is that Hero Academy 2 will be using real-time matches. This means there will be no more long waits for players to make their moves. Instead players will be making moves there and then, this should greatly speed up the pace of games. There is also a brand new deck builder. Players collect cards of each faction to build up their own unique deck – there are hundreds of combinations! There is both single player campaigns, challenges as well of course, real-time multiplayer available.


All the download links can be found at The game is free to download and play on all platforms. Go check it out, ready your card deck and play today!
