The fact is that you can attack an opponent standing two cells away from you, but only if his cell is located on the same line with yours. If the attack is currently impossible, then it is worth checking whether the enemy will attack you when you make a move – so you can easily get hit by it. This can be checked by tapping the cell you plan to move to with a long tap – if the enemy's cell turns red, then you can deal damage to it, and if not, then it will attack you in this position itself. Therefore, if you want to destroy an enemy who is standing at a distance of two cells, and in any case fall under his blow, we advise you to take a step back, thereby provoking the enemy to make a move and move.Try to get a Shield to avoid damage.This achievement you can unlock in the initial levels. It is located in the list of achievements, which is called "Optimal recovery" and opens only if you approach the altar to restore health, while having one heart (number of lives) and not charged with energy sandals. This can be done already at the first level, and starting from the fifth level, you can get a Shield by sacrificing two hearts at the altar. The shield is useful if you are in a situation where damage is unavoidable - it protects you from blows and bombs and acts for two turns, making you completely invulnerable.Activate the Deep Lunge at later levels.This ability is available almost immediately, it does not require sacrifices – you just find it in one of the bags at the altar. It allows you to kill two demons at once, if they are standing behind each other, and is especially useful in difficult levels, when enemies will tightly surround you.Hide behind your opponents.
Remember: archers and mages can't damage you from a distance if there are other demons between them and you. Knowing this nuance will be very useful to you, especially if there is a demon-infantryman right in front of you, and behind him – an archer or a magician. Then, with a Deep Lunge, you can destroy them both in one blow. This is especially useful at later levels, since you will have no one to hide behind at the beginning, but then you will see for yourself...Do not use the spear until you have upgraded it.Some altars allow you to upgrade the spear, and then the range of its throw, and hence the damage, will increase. But, in general, the spear is not very useful to you, since throwing it at a mage or archer to hit them at a distance, you will be forced to approach and pick it up, thereby exposing yourself to possible blows from other enemies. Practice shows that evasion tactics in Hoplite work better than risk and attack. At least this is true up to level 10, where at the altar you will be able to receive a Summoning prayer that will return the spear back to your hands. After you get to the Rune, you can use another prayer that will give your spear not only to kill one demon, but also to stun those who stand nearby.So, you've got some basic tips that will hopefully make your Hoplite experience easier and more enjoyable.
