About

Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a rogue-like RPG with a procedurally generated environment. This is the remake of a web-platformer in HD quality.

Gameplay

The player takes a role of the famous dungeon explorer set to go as far as he can in his explorations. The protagonist — his name always varies depending on the skills and background chosen — examines the 2D levels consisting of destructible and indestructible blocks filled with enemies.
There is a variety of spells, weaponry, and foes usual to RPGs. Every once in a while a player encounters a boss. All the progress except for the skill points is lost after death. Between the respawns the protagonist can upgrade the level of his successors using the goods he found on his previous dungeon run.
The title feature split-screen cooperative and online multiplayer for a maximum of 4 characters. The game is highly replayable due to the procedurally generated of the environment. The game suggests only going down into the dungeon thus the name. The skills may bring variety into descending every time.

Plot

Contrary to the most rogue-likes where the successors of the protagonist are presented as his offsprings, here we have the prophecy of a great hero and some kamikazes who suddenly thought it is a tale about them — so the succession does not last long hence the immersive mechanics work on the better level.

Vertical Drop Heroes HD reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Vertical drop Heroes is a good little beat-them-all, with a pseudo RPG appearance with a level increase and unlockable bonuses to play. The game is entertaining, without much pretension, allowing us to quickly chain the levels without really paying attention. We go down, we type what passes, we use a transporter to return to the beginning if we have forgotten something (a key or a monster), and we start again until we kill the boss and go to the next level, where the difficulty Alan. The game boils down to this cycle, agribing each part of a character reroll with different abilities and features, in addition to the abilities purchased from merchants during your vertical exploration. The game has a good design, reminiscent of the games of the behemoth (Castle Crashers, battle block theater, etc.), and even if the music is quite simple, it integrates well with the design itself. However, we regret the lack of lag that we find in the behemoth, the game seeming to take itself fairly seriously despite its appearance. Note: 6/10 the most: beat-them-all side well exploited, variety of characters (appearance, characteristics and abilities) and difficulty enough present to be fun without being frustrating. The less: RPG side left a little side, universe "serious" with a childish and repetitive design.

Game Rating: 9/10 Simple, addictive, demanding, frustrating, funny! The Moment when you install a Random Game from your Steam List, expect nothing and are shocked first! Blackscreen! WTF! Briefly looked into the Forum (full of it), with 4 Clicks on Windows 7 set in Compatibility Mode for the Game and off you go! Second Surprise: Hardly Any Mouse support. Oh You Shit! Do I Want Controllers? Nope. In total, you can get by with a good 6-7 Buttons. Everything can be adjusted comfortably, even on WASD etc. Then get into the Game! Funny Characters, the Game principle explains itself. You quickly get to know the Weapons and Skills and the first Successes come naturally. In No Time you die and learn that there is a Blacksmith and a Witch where you eagerly invest your Gold. Even In-game you should always buy every passing Extension. At least if you want all the Successes (finally a Game where the Successes are clear and fair, from very easy to somewhat demanding). You keep playing and you die and you make it at some point! Played Through! But: Yet 2x for the Infinity Sword! You always try new hero station wagons and Weapons, some are a complete Disappointment (Musket!), others quite Awesome (Spear!). At Last you have all the Successes and your super sword. Start with 1 HP! Oje, will this be what? Careful we start, the first Lvlups no longer make us the 1 hit and finally, in Level 8, with well over 1000 HP, become unillable, we die of a Thorn trap ... You couldn't have stopped with Vertical Drop Heroes HD. A Game that constantly drives you mad and you know: It's down to the unfair Game ... But a Voice in your Head tells you: It's up to you, you NOOOOOOBBB! ;)
