heroki, the game we talked about last week, has just arrived on iOS and is available for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The game had been in development since 2013 by Picomy and was published by SEGA. Its value is $7,99 and it is a premium game, meaning no in-app purchases.
By controlling the character who has the same one in the game, the player must fly through different stages, collecting items and defeating enemies. Heroki is a game with great graphics and different gameplay. And where is the “classic style”? He's in the plot. The game has a hero, a villain and a “rival” for the hero, something very similar to games from the 90s like Mega Man, Sonic, Rocket Nights, Star Fox.. got it?
Heroki can fly, pick up things and throw against enemies, the gameplay looks like a mix of Nights (Saturn) with another game that I can't remember the name of right now. But the idea of putting a game with gameplay like this on iOS was brilliant, as it fits perfectly with the use of the touch screen.
At over 10 hours long, it goes without saying that Heroki is worth every penny. The game has several enemies, power-ups and fun boss battles. The visual is the great attraction of the game, impressing at each stage. Interestingly, the graphics resemble games like Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and Oceanhorn (also an iOS exclusive).
Being developed since 2013, it's curious to see how accessible Heroki is to Apple's entry-level devices. The game runs on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 and obviously runs better on newer devices. Unfortunately the game is not in Spanish.
For now, Heroki is iOS exclusive and there is no information about an Android version.
