HEROES OF RUIN DEMO NOW AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD

Check out our player’s guide for hints and tips

Well, it feels like it’s all you’ve been talking about the whole week. It’s certainly been at the forefront of our minds and now that the Heroes of Ruin demo has launched, we’d like to hear your reactions.

Who was your hero of choice - the Gunslinger or the Vindicator? Which skills did you upgrade? Whatever your decisions, we’d like to hear your opinions in the comments section below.

For those of you who haven’t finished the demo twice (there are two classes on offer after all), or those just after a helping hand, we’ve compiled a nifty list of tips and tricks for all your budding adventurer-type needs.

Enjoy!

HELPFUL HINTS

• Auto-Equip items by pressing up on the +Control Pad when standing over the object. A green upward arrow denotes a better item and a red down arrow a worse item. Red font means the item is not suit¬able (too high a level or different class).

• When adventuring through the level remember to use health potions (directional pad ⇐) and block to remain alive.

• If the player dies press the B button to respawn.

• Watch your Energy bar to see when it depletes because you won’t be able to use the Y, X or A button until it recharges. Energy recharges automatically but a potion can also be used (⇒ on the directional pad).

• Pick up loot using the L button. Gold and potions are picked up automatically by walking over them.

• Check your Quest log to see quest progress.

• Some world objects are breakables. Look for brown barrels and purple clams. Break these for gold and potions. 

• Press the chest icon on the Touch Screen to check your inventory. Scroll through icons to look at available items. How the item will affect stats is depicted on the top screen. Red font means it will lower a stat if equipped and green shows that it will increase a stat. A class name in red means that the item cannot be used by your class. Press A to equip an item.

Oh, and I'm sorry, but I also have to spam a bit...

Can't wait til I get my preorder on friday!^^

The only thing I didn't like was the loot drop system and that ANYONE in your party can take it. Otherwise I seriously Can Not Wait for this epic game :P

Oh... I used my 6 times... Can't wait for the real game !

Loving the demo can't wait for friday :)

There is so many comments that my previous comments not listed. Is this a problem or not??

VERY good demo :D too bad only 6 uses

More screenshots from the demo maybe? I would like to see some of the characters in action. Especially since there are no screenshots of the savage on the site at all....

I also heard the same about the demo being only 6-8 activates. I hope this isn't true...resident evil had 30 and that didn't last me but a week. :(

and what is the armor/equipment like? Is it +agi , +str or is it +1 to skill or what?

Is there need of repair for equipment and weapons? I hope not...sometimes it's neat but sometimes it's annoying :(

The demo was amazing!! I was looking forwars to the Gunslinger but now I'm all for the Vindicator!

I'm really wanting to try the savage though. I guess I need to wait for july :(

I don't know if I will like vindicator in the demo but the gunslinger seems like a sweet class.

The demo was awesome, I was looking forward to Gunslinger at first, but now I'm for the Vindicator! I'm really disapointed that there are only 6 uses though, while other games had 30 or 25. I could keep playing the demo all day, however when playing online I seemed to keep getting communication errors and that doesn't really happen with other 3ds games like Kid Icarus Uprising or Street Fighter IV. At the people above, please don't spam.

I work over nights at a retailer so I will be buying this sucker at midnight on release date here in the states.
