Critic Reviews for Flat Heroes

The minimalism of Flat Heroes is its biggest pillar, from which grows an amazing game that arises as one of the most interesting platformers of the year

As minimalistic as rounded proposal that reminds us the best of games like Super Meat Boy, while having a unique visual style and some excellent coop modes.

If you've ever enjoyed the likes of Super Meat Boy or N++, it's worth giving this stylish action title a try.

What I'm trying to say is that Flat Heroes is a game that all Switch owners should have in their library. It's a fantastic experience that I will be playing for months to come.

Mixing the shapely looks of Thomas Was Alone with the speed of 10 Second Run Returns and the brutal difficulty of Super Meat Boy, Flat Heroes fits the Nintendo Switch like a glove. If you're playing solo you've got a solid (and lengthy) Campaign as well as bot support for its mini-games, but it's the electric excitement of the game's local multiplayer mode where Flat Heroes right-angled, platforming madness makes the biggest impact. Don't be a square - get this in your digital collection right now.

Flat Heroes may look like a very simple game but beneath its unassuming exterior lies a puzzler that features a very well designed progression curve, a fine multiplayer mode, an impressive amount of challenges and a long lifespan that stretches beyond that of its counterparts.

Now, it might seem like I've given it quite a hard time but Flat Heroes isn't bad.

Aside from a couple of relatively small issues, this is both one of the finest independent games of 2018, and one of the most unique puzzle/action/platforming titles of the year. A visceral experience, which relies almost purely on the satisfaction of clearing a tough challenge, Flat Heroes provides ample opportunities for players to test their mettle against a continually escalating series of challenges. Whether breaking through thanks to careful dissection of the puzzle, pure technical skill, or even just a bit of luck, each new stage presents a new opportunity to earn what should be a very satisfying victory.
