I Am The Hero reviews and comments

This 2D beat ' em up is upstaged both visually and acoustically opulently. On the one hand, it is reminiscent of the good OLD SEGA Mega Drive times (E.g. Streets of Rage 2), on the other hand, it also looks very modern and contemporary. The Goal of the Game is nothing more than to knock your Opponents dizzy soft. You beat yourself from Level to Level and you should see that your Combo is not interrupted. Various Special Moves will help you with this Endeavor. The Protagonist of the Game but also your Opponents seem graphically absolutely lovingly and elaborately staged. Even the Hairstyle of the young Gentleman moves Elegantly in the Wind, while he has mostly cool hands in his Pockets. Even the quirky Humour of the Game knows how to please. Fortunately, the Opponents lose fast Food (E.g. burgers or Coke) in between In order to replenish your Life energy. The whole Concept is Rounded off by impressive and challenging Boss Battles. The Degree Of difficulty seems quite simple at first-when there are only 1 or two Opponents on the Screen-but attracts quite quickly when there are suddenly 6-7 Opponents. The Game time of about 3 Hours I find really okay for the Price of €9. For this fast Game, a Controller is, in my Opinion, mandatory. I played it without any Problems with my Xbox One Controller. However, based on the Gamepa Assignments displayed in the game, the Game also seems to be tailored to this Gamepad. Of course, the almost obligatory Steam features such as Achievements and Trading Cards are also available. 9/10 Points from my Side for this entertaining and imposing 2D beat ' em up and therefore a clear Buy recommendation from my Side!

The Game I love but I see no option to save or save automatic and every time I close and open the game the story mode is reset and return to the beginning of the story mode.

Seems Like a cool game! Nice graphics and a smooth high paced gameplay. Unfortunatly my progress isnt saved and i have to start over every time i open the game. Any wat to fix this? Thnx!

the game looks great but the buttons are misplaced and I do not see anything when I type the enemies... so a little messy. I support anywhere but I do not see much, pity.

The game crashes regularly during level changes, but what is much more annoying, progression is systematically lost!!! It's fun to play, but losing progress every single time makes it a complete waste of time.

Maybe has a great Gaming Experience after closing and opening the App you are EVERYONE at the Beginning (Tutorial) no matter how far you have already fought your way. Nevertheless, a good Game as I said: It is not playable! £2.7completely thrown out the Window!

Really nice brawler in very modern pixel look. Controls aren't too easy. Old Version 1.05 Sadly crashes on iPhone 6 with iOS 9.3.5 when trying to continue the campaign which was startet with the build before. They fixed it. Thx! Sorry for the problem, we've just updated a new patch to fix it. Hope it is not too late for you. Thanks for the feedback!

Very nice Game, there is only one big problem, not by the possibility to create an account and not save the Games in the story mode, making you start over every time you close the app, SOLVE! Given the Modest amount of purchase, I think it is the minimum to have the opportunity to save the Games in a game based on the experience and unlock hand-to-hand characters and whatnot.

I am very happy with the game that his Money is absolutely worth it! Finally a good beat em up sidescroller for the handy, cool combos with good control. You can argue About the Pixel look, it's a matter of taste, I don't find bad, looks good in any case, even if I would have found a different style even better, but you would have to see that, there are bad styles with something. But is not a minus-point for me. I'm excited to see what the developers put out so much, weapons and bloody effects would also be cool. (Wenns that already gives me a apologized, I first alluded to the app). Keep it up!!
