Critic Reviews for Vertical Drop Heroes HD

Ultimately, Vertical Drop Heroes HD is fun for a few hours, but gets repetitive quickly. The asking price is low so it might be worth a look if it really tickles your fancy, but Rogue Legacy is only £4 more expensive and accomplishes similar ideas more effectively and with more depth.

The problem with Vertical Drop Heroes HD is that it's not very fun.

Vertical Drop Heroes is a cheap and certainly cheerful 2D platformer, and pretty enjoyable, although it's unlikely to hold your attention for too long. It's a game that's as much about luck and perseverance than actual skill, but Roguelike fans who want something a little lighter might well enjoy this.

Vertical Drop Heroes is a really solid game. While there are a couple of things I could (and did) nitpick, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. If you're looking for a fun and slightly different type of RPG that you can easily play in spurts, definitely give this one a go.

Vertical Drop Heroes is a remake of a browser-based game from the turn of the decade. It does procedural and roguelike in a quick and fun way but ultimately is only for fans of this genre. What it does it does well, but that is limited.

Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a fun roguelike experience on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

I had a lot of fun with Vertical Drop Heroes HD. The action and pacing are great, and the challenge is never overwhelming. When I died, I knew it was due to my own fault. The one complaint I'd have is that the game looks a bit dark on the PS Vita. And yes, I have the portable's brightness set to max. Other than that, the game is a lot of fun, and with Cross-Buy functionality and its decent price, the game is definitely worth your time and money.

Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a somewhat addictive yet short-lived roguelike adventure.
