This virtual simulator merges management and RPG together in a wonderful game that anyone can play, for free! Shop Heroes is a Facebook-based RPG and management game that gives you control over a weapons crafting shop set in a fantasy world. As a shop manager, it is your job to collect and craft certain weapons according to the requests of each individual hero.
Unlike other blacksmith simulation games, this game takes on an isometric, third person view. In your shop, you have room for various workers, each with their own specialty for crafting weapons. The first two workers you can recruit are the Carpenter and the Blacksmith, obviously two workers that can craft steel and wooden weapons, respectively.
This is how the game works. A hero comes into your shop seeking weapons. You’ll build it in response, and you can earn gold coins in return. You can also “upsell” to improve the value of the weapon, but this uses up “hearts” or energy. If you have a similar weapon in stock, you can also suggest that weapon if you have no resources at all for crafting a new weapon.
Speaking of resources, you have to purchase resource bins to produce those resources for you. You have the Wood Bin for producing Wood, and the Iron Bin for producing Iron. You can buy these from the furniture shop in the game, but you are limited by your shop’s capacity. To get more room, you need to upgrade the shop but this will cost you a certain amount in gold as well.
At the start of your game, you will be able to craft only one weapon at a time, but you can upgrade anytime by using up blue gems. Now, you will come across items that need special materials in order to be crafted. You can obtain those items by sending Heroes on quests at the Inn. When the quests are completed, the hero will bring you back the special material. Sometimes, they’ll also bring back a wooden chest with unknown treasure, which could include special equipment for the heroes and blueprints for new weapons that can be crafted at the shop.
Heroes will also seek your help for personal adventures. If you assist them, you will get a certain amount of gems in return.
The game uses an Experience-based system, which means that you will gain experience when selling items. When you level up, you will gain new blueprints for items as well as unlock special decorative items for your weapons shop. Your workers also gain experience and level up as well, with specific rewards.
Shop Heroes, despite its simple premise, is a fun virtual world simulator that you will definitely want to give a try. There are challenges to this game that could keep you playing and unable to leave, so make sure that you play this on your free time.
