An Important Disclaimer
This game is very very difficult. I do not mean boring or impossible, just difficult. You are always at a disadvantage, so it takes real skill to win. Beating this game probably took me 20, maybe 25 hours to complete, and not one second of it was boring. Farming is not really a thing, there is really no way to do it. You just have to keep trying new thing and figuring out strategies for each enemy on each level. If it takes you 2 hours to clear a level, that's fine, because sometimes it takes that long for some levels, regardless of your skill level. But if you keep playing and aren't annoyed with failing, it stays fun, and you keep making progress. This is by far one of the best put together games on the App Store. Don't be fooled by how simplistic it seems, the controls are responsive and not one part is easy. My favorite game to date, and I am excited to try the also highly rated sequel.
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
