Brave, strong as awkward and dim-witted the first one; agile, smart and ready for anything the second one. They are both intergalactic agents called to protect the galaxies from crime.

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A good italian indie game, so much focused on being "old school" that it tuns out to be outdated, but still fun to play.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

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.

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.
