_Band of Heroes: Might and Pillage_ is a fantasy-themed shoot ’em up in which
you and your fellow heroes attack/shoot and run automatically. While trying to
steal from the king you run into underlings of the evil witch Morrgarin that
are after a strange jewel. As they leave with the jewel you barely manage to
escape and go after the jewel. The screen scrolls up vertically automatically
and the player can move his band of heroes freely around the screen. The goal
of the game is to kill enemy units, bosses and structures you encounter.
The game offers several stages that increase in difficulty and five heroes to
choose from that gradually become available when making progress. Before each
stage you can change your team composition as only three heroes can enter the
field. When killed, you can buy upgrades from the money you collected from
killed enemies. Each hero levels individually and has unique skills. More
upgrades become available as you heroes rise in level. Achievement badges can
be earned for accomplishing certain feats like killing bosses, killing a
certain amount of enemies and reach level 10 with a hero. You control your
team with the keyboard or mouse.
