88 Heroes

Dust off your capes, get those mild-mannered disguises stowed away, Rising Star Games have announced a release date for Bitmap Bureau’s 2D chaotic platformer, 88 Heroes.

88 Heroes is a furiously frantic, funny and fan-pleasing platformer. Offering fast, frenetic action played with 88 unique and original playable characters, each with their own skills and abilities. These may help or hinder your progress, so be sure to choose wisely. Packed with hilarious content and nerd-culture references, 88 Heroes offers a constant challenge as each new hero will dramatically change how you will play through each of the 88 levels.

Being a 2D chaotic platformer, the game is as fun to watch as it is to play, where each level completed, or untimely death, brings a new uniquely skilled hero into action. These heroes are randomly selected with each play, meaning players will always face a fresh and varied challenge. Conquer the four zones, each with it’s own unique boss encounter, or play one of the multiple game modes which include; Magnificent 8 mode – choose a team of just eight heroes to tackle the entire game with; Solo mode – pick just a single hero and master their skills in order to survive as long as super-humanly possible.

With just 88 minutes to complete all 88 levels, players will need every one of the 88 Heroes to stop the dastardly Dr. H8 from destroying the Earth, in this game, built with the Super House of Dead Ninjas game engine.

88 Heroes will see a digital release for Xbox One on the 24th of March.
