HERO CANTARE with NAVER WEBTOON Gameplay Impressions

HERO CANTARE with NAVER WEBTOON

Welcome to a clash of toon titans with Hero Cantare with Naver Webtoon, an anime RPG that is fast becoming a new fan favorite. There is a very strong reason for that, which is the fact that it is based on three webtoons of growing popularity: Tower of God, Hardcore Leveling Warrior, and God of High School. I’ve heard about these webtoons before, but I must admit that I’m not a follower, although Hero Cantare might just change my mind. The developers asked us if we could give it a try and we’re glad we did so, because it feels like a comic fan’s dream. Hero Cantare also has a pretty good rating on the Play Store and App Store, so what were we waiting for? Go ahead and get it, and watch our impressions as the game downloads.

I may be wrong, and any true fans out there feel free to correct me in the comments, but I think there’s this couldn’t-care-less, immature approach to these digital comics, and that is probably part of what makes them so refreshing. I mean, having a character called Pooh Upooh is a bit telling, right? There’s also one that made me raise my eyebrows, called Khun Aguero. That reminded me of Manchester City’s Argentinian striker, but that is likely a remarkable coincidence. I mean, none of his skills involve kicking a ball into the back of the net, so…

There’s no shortage of cute waifus, and we all just know how important a selling point that is in a hero collector game. Don’t worry, Hero Cantare has got you covered in this regard, as you can see. Oh, and that soundtrack is just fantastic, it caught my attention the moment that it started blasting through my speakers. Turn the volume up, guys!

The whole game is designed as a tribute to comics, with cutscenes that feel like those from a comic book, and an overall presentation that does its best to honor the source material. The 2D animated artwork is fantastic and the heroes are truly well made, obviously with a share of the credit going to the authors of the webtoon. When you enter the battle, the characters are represented in a cleaner style, almost like chibi versions of their 2D artwork counterparts. Nonetheless, it’s very cute, the heroes are colorful and with subtle details – No Name, the oddly named girl from Hardcore Leveling Warrior, has this glitch effect that will make you stare at her until you realize it’s just an in-game effect. No, your screen isn’t damaged, you’re in the clear.

Hero Cantare is fairly generous in its gacha approach, leaving much room for a reroll. You won’t have to endure a longwinded tutorial before you get your first free pull, as you are done in less than 10 minutes. Besides, you get your selective pull just a couple of battles later. This is when you can summon your first ten heroes, with one of them being SS tier and up to three being S tier, but you are free to repeat the process until you are pleased with the outcome. We have a Hero Cantare tier list on our website, so go and give it a look to get a good idea about which heroes you should be aiming for. But who am I currently using as my go-to team, you ask? Black-March Bam as my tank of choice, with Maschenny, No-name, and God-Killer Zero serving as support and eye-candy.

The Hero Cantare battle system is extremely simple and catchy. You have to setup your team of four units with two heroes in the front row and two in the back row, but when you step into the battlefield, things are a little bit different from other hero collector RPGs. The core of the game involves forming chains up to three units to use a hero skill, but the longer the chain, the more mana it costs. Don’t think that it’s just a matter of stacking units, sometimes you have to refrain from it and settle for a 2 chain, because that skill may be more useful than a full-on 3 chain for a specific enemy.

In between battles, you must level up and upgrade your heroes, but also equip them with adequate equipment sets. Depending on each hero’s strengths and talent, you can make them wear distinct equipment sets, choosing from damage, destruction, vitality, protection, and a few more. Clearly, you want your tank units to go for one of the first two, although experimenting usually yields the best results, so don’t hold back on it until you find your best loadouts.

One great way of leveling up your heroes is by sending them on city search and side missions. City search is highly recommended, since it works even when you log off, and the next day that you return to the game you’re going to have tons of rewards and experience points to collect.

PvP comes in two different modes, 1v1 and 3v3 team arena. The former is straightforward, as you set up defensive and attacking formations and watch the heroes have at it. As for the latter, it’s a more intricate mode because you have to establish three teams from your hero roster and each one will face another player’s team in turns. The winner is the player that wins the most matches, so it’s not a good tactic to pick your best heroes for the first team and ignore the other two. This is also where you get to see many heroes that you didn’t yet collect, and appreciate the frenzied visual effects that fill the screen as each one unleashes its best skills.

I’d say that there is this naïve and indie feel to Hero Cantare with Naver Webtoon, like an extension of the webtoons. It’s very enjoyable, and both the graphics and soundtrack give it a distinctive and dynamic style. If you’re a fan of the genre, go for the link in the video description and download the game. I’ll leave you guys with a few summons and a free coupon code. Turn your volume up and let your ears delight in the infectious sounds of this brilliant soundtrack. Have fun.
