Fun and neat but very easy. It would have been nice for the characters to have different wepons and skill sets rather than just looking different though

Run. Dumb. Heroes.

After spending an hour killing and upgrading with someone that looks like Abe Lincoln, level 18 comes and goes. Random Heroes is nothing groundbreaking. It uses the tried and true formula of Shoot, jump, shoot some more, jump a couple more times and upgrade. Repeat as needed. The saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" holds true here. The graphics look great and are a throwback to the 8-bit days of my youth. Nine weapons range from a simple pistol to a pulse laser. My only hangup is that once you buy a new weapon, there is no reason to use any previous weapons due to the fact they just get stronger and fire faster. Other upgrades include health and medikit purchases just to name a couple. The soundtrack is surprisingly good, a mix of rock and techno beats keep the pace and the weapon effects arent far off. Enemies and level design are on the easy side (especially bosses, only 3!) For the most part a fun game that doesnt try anything new but dont hold that against it. Add more depth and upgradeable weapons and it will be awesome!

Pretty fun

Fun, straightforward game. However, I expected different weapons for each character, rather than just different skins.

Classic fun

I can't find anything wrong with this game - I didn't give it a ten because I felt it was a little bit short. That aside, it was awesome! Great fun, cute graphics and upgrades. Everybody loves upgrades!


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

decent but nothing stands out

I give praise for the solid WASD controls, no glitches present. Gold is very easy and the only challenge I think people would find is fighting boredom making it to the finihs. A shame the player skins couldn't have meant a few more enemy types instead.
