REVIEW: A fun story precedes the battle, but this game wastes no time getting you right into the heat of the action. With very little instruction (which quite frankly is not necessary,) the tapping begins with attacking your first enemy. Each level has 10 opponents with a boss battle that takes a little more preparation. That preparation comes with earning gold and leveling up He-man and unlocking other masters. The more characters fighting, the more damage is done and the quicker you level up. Should you fail in defeating a boss, no worries as you can simply keep attacking the enemies until you earn enough gold to upgrade your team and face your nemesis again. Orko appears offering artifacts to help as well as special skills which includes summoning Battlecat.

He-man: Tappers of Grayskull is mindless fun injected with a colorful shot of nostalgia. It's not a game style I'm really used to playing. I did however managed to reach level 50 in about the first hour of playing, but man, are my fingers sore!! The character design and backdrops are really great and when you decide to quit, you team continues fighting and you collect the gold when you return! The upgrade costs are getting astronomical but it seems the amount of gold earned increases at about the same level. Check it out and come back with your own review in the comments!
