What's New in Version 1.4
- Bug fixes
This game is a platform shooter with lateral movement and two action buttons. It attempts to get the player to assume a MegaMan-esque mindset yet fails to balance accordingly.
The enemies at the beginning stages soak up damage like sponges and move at rates that makes them hard to eliminate without the player character taking damage in turn.
With the beginning life meter being 3 hits, this leads to frequent restart-on-death instances. This in itself seems like an attempt to imitate Rogue Games, a la seemingly unfair difficulty. However, unlike Rogue or Capcom, the designers seemingly paid no mind to precision.
Therefore, the main focus seems to be two things in this game: appearance and buying currency.
The UI is very clean and simplistic, with the translucent control "buttons" blocking none of the action. It looks like an appealing, if derivative, pixelated platformer ("derivative" seems to be the intention, if the vg references in the achievements are anything to go off of).
With balancing of the early equips versus enemy units, it's plain that the designers want to funnel the player into buying ingame currency to obtain more effective gear in order to advance at an accelerated pace.
One would gather that I've only played Random Hero for a brief span of time, and would be correct in that assumption. There are plenty of free platformers that would give me more entertainment value than this App Store chaff.
One of the better apps
Random Heroes is probably one of the best apps on the App Store. It's a very well designed game, and weirdly It doesn't get boring even if it is repetitive, and that's really surprising. This really is a quality game. That doesn't mean this game is perfect. Some of the guns aren't much fun to use, or they cost to much. Also this game gets very difficult without much of a curve. The music is a real disappointment to because it's very bland and tasteless compared to its sequels. The sequels are better and fix a lot of the problems in my opinion, and if u want to get into this game I recommend you play Random heroes 2 first, then play 3 which is the best. Awesome game, music
Let me say that no matter what I rate it that I've played almost half the day on this game.
So the levels are perfectly balanced next to coin gain so you only have enough coins to buy a good skin and a gun suited for passing the level without it becoming to difficult, the skins aren't to powerful and the guns don't do to much damage to the villains that are more powerful.
The boss levels give a ton of coins when you pass it and are always a challenge to pass the first time.
It's great overall however it can get REALLY tough later on.
One thing I thought would be fun is a co-operation mode (up to four people) over local wi-fi, maybe levels made just for multiplayer?
It's all your choice but overall? Fun but slightly challenging, a definite must have for platform fans.
