Genres: Arcade, Action
I Am The Hero is a love note to retro gaming, ripped from the fuzzy memories of the developer’s childhoods and seasoned with a wild passion for fighting games. If you want a truly modern re-interpretation of classic gaming, then it’s time to join the fate and answer one simple question, “are you the hero?”
I Am The Hero - Gameplay Trailer
Short and sweet, I am the Hero is another example of why you don't need a big budget or a 50-hour campaign to make a good videogame. Smooth, deep combat and sharp, well-crafted levels and enemies ensure that this bite-size experience is an enjoyable one even despite its repetitive soundtrack and poor English translation.
The game will take a handful of hours to complete, with challenging boss fights and multiple difficulty choices. On top of that, there are also extra modes to add more flavor to the game: Challenge and Fight. Challenge mode encourages you to see how long you last fighting wave upon wave of enemies, bringing it closer to an endless mode of sorts. As for Fight mode, as the name suggests, it's all about your fighting style. The game is a cross-buy release, and it also offers separate Platinum trophy lists so that you can unlock two Platinum trophies for your efforts if you're willing to put the extra time into it!
