Take to the skies and live the high life as a muscle-bound, superhero playboy. Catch falling babies, douse towering infernos, battle giant insects and thwack thieving crooks as you amass ever-increasing fame and adulation. The Hero is a lightning-fast arcade romp that sizzles with comic book style, sassy characters and superhuman gameplay.


TouchArcade: "The Hero' is a Highly Stylized and Manic Superhero Escapade!"

PocketGamer: "The Hero is a highly polished game that’s easy to pick up and contains plenty of heroic hilarity! 8/10 rating"

Though his true identity is unknown, the one they call The Hero lives the fast-track, whirlwind life of an A-list celebrity. Speeding from world-threatening crises to world famous interviews, he’s a deliciously enigmatic mystery to his adoring fans and a fearsome force of destruction to his enemies.

The Hero’s arch-nemesis, the deranged evil screwball Dr. Hubbub, is at large once again and bent on taking over the world’s glitziest cities in a maelstrom of chaos and all out bedlam. As the world teeters on the brink of catastrophe, the Chief and his voluptuous secretary, Miss Rose, turn to The Hero to save the world from the diabolical plans of the nefarious Dr. Hubbub.


Fly to the rescue, arcing gracefully through gorgeous cityscapes as you speed to the aid of scores of helpless victims. Call upon Freeze, Boom and Zapp powers to wallop Dr. Hubbub’s evil henchmen into submission.

Fill the Fame meter and The Hero’s ego by dishing out high fives to your adoring fans as you soar past their windows.


• Gameplay Modes: Fight Dr. Hubbub’s crime wave in cities around the world in Campaign Mode, or battle an endless onslaught of sinister villains in Survival Mode.

• Three Super Powers: Freeze, Boom and Zapp! for dispatching nameless minions in style.

• Over 20 Different Enemy Units: Powerful clashes ranging from snake bots and satellites to zombies and the military.

• Over 20 (slightly) Insane Awards: Boast about your superhero flair by unlocking new achievements and awards – including one that involves electrocuting a baby!

• Two Control Options: Choose between a d-pad or tilt controls to maneuver The Hero on his daring, crime fighting antics.

• Classic 2D Visuals complete with frenetic screen-filling battles lushly detailed cities all served up in a vivid comic book style.

5/5 stars

Highly Orginal

Lots of fun. Great looking game with great gameplay to boot. Had my eye on it for a while and saw that they did a big update and called it second edition so I thought might as well. At .99 the game is well worth my $ and time .

5/5 stars

This is good and well worth the 99 cents.

Everyone needs to check this out. It's a fun original action game, and this is the second and most complete edition.

5/5 stars

Very cool game.

Totally worth buying. A very good fun game. Not sure why some idiots rated it low.
