Timing Hero PV has a very simple concept: a kingdom is ravaged by demons and monsters after the mysterious disappearance of the court mages that protected the land. After years of torment, a hero rises to confront the evil hordes. In your quest, you will collect legendary artifacts that will help you discover the fate of the mages.

But beware, the monsters that are scattered among the levels will pose a major challenge. Combat is easy to learn but very hard to master, you basically tap the attack button to hit your opponent. When you see him preparing an attack, you have to choose the right timing to evade in the correct direction.

It may sound simple, but every enemy has their own attack patterns that you have to figure out – and this is exactly what makes the game so interesting. It gives off quite a challenge. After you fight through a level (or die in the process), you get to upgrade the stats of your character and try again.

So many heroes to unlock! / © NextPit

The entire experience is quite seamless for an indie developer like Buff Studio, something proven by the 4.0 star rating from 37.000 ratings and over 1 million downloads.

Does Timing Hero PV respect my privacy?

In the Privacy Policy, the South Korean developer Buff Studio mentions a typical list of data collection while they state that they respect user privacy. The game does feature microtransactions but at no point did i find those to be necessary for the completion of the game.

In the exodus privacy platform we find that the game features two advertising trackers and required 23 permissions that with a quick look seem to be in alignment with the features of the game.
