Random Heroes Now on Android: Video of the Day

Random Heroes Now on Android: Video of the Day

Oct 29, 2013

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.

League of Evil Review

League of Evil Review

Oct 9, 2012

Fans of trial platformers on Android devices have missed out on one of the best original titles for mobile: League of Evil. Now, thanks to NoodleCake with Ravenous Games, evil scientists are only safe on Windows Phone. The premise? The League of Evil is doing evil things, so the UN calls on the Global Defense Force to save the day, but the GDF’s budget is a bit limited, so it’s really only one guy, a bionic warrior who has no guns and dies at the slightest adverse contact, but is rather acrobatic and can punch really hard. When it comes to killing those no-good scientists just standing still in out-of-the-way locations, he’s the robot man for the job. Thus, the goal is to double-jump and punch with great velocity through the many trials in the way.

And I do mean many trials. There’s a ton of content here, over 200 levels available in total for the low, low cost of $0.99. Seriously, while many of the levels can be beaten quickly, many can most assuredly not and will take some time to truly conquer. There’s plenty of reasons to keep coming back to this one. It’s funny, because I thought the game lacked content on its original iOS release, but later level packs made the game dramatically increase in replay value, and they’re here from the start for Android gamers.

The game really shines on the larger screens of Android phones. The pixel art still looks great on high-resolution screens, and there’s plenty of room for the responsive virtual controls; they’re the next best thing to physical controls. The goals of getting the briefcase and finishing under a certain time provide plenty of motivation to replay levels, to try and nail that perfect run, though it is possible to just survive and advance.

League of Evil is one of the better trial platformers available, what with its massive amount of content and great retro style at a low price. Action fans should pick this one up.
