You know we enjoy playing video games, and we’ve covered news for some mobile games in the past. Mobile games are a strange animal, and honestly I’m still undecided on my feelings about them and how they are impacting gaming in general.
However, there have been a few mobile games that I have really enjoyed. When Disney Heroes: Battle Mode was first released I was excited to give the game a try. I knew a few people who were playing it and they also seemed excited about the game. I played pretty consistently for a few weeks, but then the game lost it’s luster for me and other games took it’s place. I can’t tell you what kept me from enjoying the play, but I just kind of forgot about it for a while.
Welcome to the Disney Heroes: Battle Mode 1.14.2 Update! The new update has announced the arrival of the Donald Duck, Gizmoduck, and megavolt!
Donald Duck is a mid-line “Damage” hero. Donald Duck will be an Event Exclusive Hero featured in contest rewards on Servers 1-15.
Fly into a Rage
Donald charges across the battlefield in a rage, dealing damage to each enemy hit.
Donald throws a tantrum, blinding the closest enemies and dealing damage to them.
Once per wave, when Donald falls below a percent of his max HP, he gains HP and energy over time.
Whenever an ally is debuffed, Donald has a percent chance to absorb it without affecting him instead. He stores these debuffs and randomly applies them to enemies damaged by “Flying into a Rage”.
Aw, Phooey (server 1 only)
Donald gains energy when he absorbs a debuff with “Short Tempered.” When Donald fails to absorb a debuff with “Short Tempered”, the debuffed ally is healed.
- Donald Duck and Anger
- Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck
Gizmoduck is a mid-line “Support” hero. Gizmoduck will be an Event Exclusive Hero featured in new event crates that you will be able to purchase with Arena Tokens on Servers 1-15.
Gizmoduck whips out a couple gadgets, granting allies in front of him a percent of his armor and granting himself and allies behind him basic damage and a percent of his armor as skill power.
Gizmoduck studies the closest enemy, dealing damage and stealing a percent of their armor, giving it to himself, for the remainder of the wave.
Gizmoduck uses his telescopic arm to pull the enemy with the most skill power to him, dealing damage and studying them.
Every time an enemy is studied, Gizmoduck gains armor for the rest of the wave.
Gaggle of Gadgets (server 1 only)
When Gizmoduck uses “Signal Boost,” allies in front of Gizmoduck gain a shield equal to a percent of his armor. When Gizmoduck reaches a threshold of his max HP, allies are healed for a percent of Gizmoduck’s armor over time.
- Coming Soon!
Megavolt is a mid-line “Damage” character. Megavolt will only be available in the Diamond Crate on Servers 1-17.
Passive: Megavolt’s basic attacks apply a number of stacks of “Charged” to enemies, slowing the enemies’ movement speed with each stack of “Charged”.
Active: Megavolt consumes all stacks of “Charged”, causing electricity to bounce between enemies equal to the number of stacks consumed. Each electrical bounce deals damage.
Megavolt unleashes a blast of electricity, dealing damage to all enemies and applying stacks of “Charged” to enemies damaged.
Megavolt fires an arc of lightning at the enemy with the most energy, stunning them and dealing damage. If the target of this skill has more than x energy, they are instead stunned for longer and dealt more damage.
Megavolt constantly shocks nearby enemies, dealing damage over time to them. Each stack of “Charged” increases the damage taken from this skill by a percentage.
Bright Idea (Server 1 only)
Megavolt applies stacks of “Charged” to enemies being damaged by “Shock Absorber” every few seconds. When an enemy reaches a number of stacks of “Charged”, they are stunned and dealt damage.
Now is a great time to return to playing the game. I look forward to adding them (and leveling him) to my team.
We decided to start a Guild. We are located on Server 2 and the Guild is titled “DuckTalks” (Surprise!). If you have already began playing you can check your server by selecting your avatar on the bottom left and selecting the sub menu Account. If you are on Server 2 you can search for us and join at level 15.
If you are not on Server 2 you have two options. If you’ve just downloaded the game you can choose to create a new account and select the server you will play on. If you have been playing a while and do not want to give up your progress you will need to look for other guilds to join.
Outside of the guild we will continue to talk about our progress in the game on Twitter and maybe on future episodes of the podcast.
