Critic Reviews for Zheros

ZHEROS is fun to play for a while. Its combo system is entertaining to use, and its graphics look good. However, flaws in its design include frustrating difficulty spikes, some punishing later levels, and occasionally awkward controls, which results in a game that falls short of its potential.

A good italian indie game, so much focused on being "old school" that it tuns out to be outdated, but still fun to play. Give it a try.

The music in Zheros is an upbeat, light dubstep, very suitable for what it is, but in the end it is only one song on repeat, an apt summary of the entire game.

ZHEROS is a 2016 title that too closely adheres to 1990 game design, and doesn't even do some things as well as its quarter-century old predecessors.

ZHEROS' lack of aspiration leaves us with a beat 'em-up that is both boring and replaceable.

Zheros is a game, which you MAY finish (but I don't think you will). That is, if you don't care about good graphics and music, engaging gameplay and optimisation.

It bums me out that Zheros isn't a better game. It begins with such a promising start with its beautiful visuals and art, but trips up where it matters with scrolling beat 'em ups – the gameplay. There isn't enough variety in its level design and themed environments, the difference between characters isn't enough and awkwardly implemented traps cause frustration.

Much like The Bible is full of sections of endless "begats," describing Zheros becomes a list of "berefts.
