Now it’s time to slow things down. League of Evil creators Ravenous Games have teamed up again with Noodlecake Games, fine purveyors of games that start on iOS and then go to Android, or sometimes launch simultaneously on both platforms, to release Random Heroes for Android.
It follows a similar tack artistically to League of Evil with its pixel art, but the gameplay is very different. Where that series is full of fast-paced twitch-based action, Random Heroes is a slower experience, featuring longer levels to explore and hunt enemies down in, while still being bite-sized chunks of gameplay. As well, collecting coins to unlock new characters and more powerful weapons is key. Plus, there’s boss fights. Everyone loves (or hates) boss fights!
While its pacing and levels may not strike a chord with some, Random Heroes is interesting in the way that it takes a familiar starting point and goes a different direction with it. Watch me tackle the first world below, and then get the game on Google Play.
