Loony, witty, and comedic, OneMore Game Studio‘s simple yet effective role-playing gacha game, Merge Duck 2, proves that a fun game doesn’t have to take itself too seriously to be enjoyed.

In a game similar to Newbie Life, you get to recruit colorful heroes – all ducks – into a glorious team of space-faring and planet-conquering warriors. With a total of 72 diverse characters for you to summon, here’s a quick tier list to help you identify which of them deserves your attention:

As the commander of your own spaceship, you find yourself marooned on an unfamiliar planet after you crash-landed onto unknown territory. To survive, you enlist the help of newfound allies, all capable fighters worthy of your ‘divinity’ (the local ducks see you as a celestial entity who fell from the skies).

You can explore multiple game modes in Merge Duck 2, leading the same rag-tag group in all of them while collecting valuable resources to grow and strengthen your members as you see fit.

Tougher enemies await you as you beat the game’s challenges, so knowing which hero to welcome into your party will prove crucial to your long-term success. Here’s how each in-game character fares right now:

Tier 1 (Omnipotent)

Tier 2 (Supreme)

When it comes to these heroes, you might be better off ‘retiring’ them for the added resources and materials used to empower your other more reliable recruits:

  • Blade Empire
    • [C-Rank] Gladiator, Archer
  • Ultra Guild
