Heroes of Newerth For Mac Publisher's description
from S2 Games
Battle your friends in this entertaining game.
Heroes of Newerth is a very entertaining game in which two teams of up to five players, take turns in the role of special Hero units. With the assistance of AI-controlled armies, each team sets out with the sole objective of destroying the other team's base.
As they keep playing, users can earn experience and gold which can be used to upgrade skills or purchase items to make their character more powerful. The team-oriented design of HoN coupled with unprecedented in-game Voice-Over-IP controls and Clan Support allow for an incredibly deep, tactical team-based experience.
