Cover Based Shooters have taken a break lately. This sub-genre of shooting games was very popular between 2012 and 2015. But Hero Hunters returns the formula with an “Overwatch” look and exciting story mode. The game arrived last week on Google Play and App Store and is free to download and play.
Hero Hunters bet on the first look to captivate the player. The graphics are very beautiful. The gameplay is well within the Cover System standard, where your character hides from enemy shots using obstacles for protection. It's the same genre of games as the series Frontline Commando e Rival Fire.
The differential of Hero Hunters is in the single player mode. The game has a captivating story and characters that are beyond inspired by Overwatch. But luckily the inspiration is light enough to not cause any problems for Hothead Games.
A fun part of this game is that the multiplayer mode can be versus or cooperative. The variety of characters guarantees very curious games with the possibility of healing friends and destroying obstacles with heavier weapons.
Hero Hunters is a nice addition to the Cover System Shooters genre. This genre, which is a horror on consoles, has a gameplay that fits very well on mobile. At first, the commands are a little confusing, but it takes 5 minutes to get used to it. The number of heroes is satisfying and their variety interesting enough to keep you playing for a long time.
