It's 8:08am on 8th August 1988, and the evil Dr. H8 has brought the world to the brink of total annihilation!

88 Heroes is pure arcade fun. A game system as simple and straightforward as original and addictive.

88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition is a humorous platformer that infuriates as much as it entertains. While the colorful cast of ragtag misfits is charming and unique, you might be turned off by the quirky mechanics and odd use of permadeath.

88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition is an enjoyable game with an interesting and unique premise, plus the multiple game modes do make for a lot of replayability.  However, some of the heroes basically do nothing but jump and some of the ones that can attack have attacks that can easily backfire if you don't know what you're doing, making a lot of the game trial and error.  Also if you get down to just one hero, get very used to him/her/it as you do have unlimited continues, but unless you get enough coins to revive someone, that's all you have for the rest of the game.

6 / 10

88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition is rich in characters and humorous content and is very likely to keep players around it for long sessions of play. This doesn't quite materialize in all the game's components, as the way it manages the death of the player's characters will feel out of place and unbalanced, while the levels' extremely short length and similar traits among them will not allow for a deeper experience.
