Flat Heroes is a platform action game by indie studio Parallel Circles. It was published by Deck13 Interactive, the co-authors of Lords of the Fallen (co-produced with Polish studio CI Games) and the creators of The Surge.
Flat Heroes utilizes a side-view perspective. You play as the eponymous heroes, which are squares fighting for survival in over 300 levels, all of them designed by hand. You control the protagonists with simple moves (run, jump, dodge, and attack), and the gameplay involves jumping on platforms, avoiding traps and enemies' attacks, as well as eliminating the opponents (including 10 powerful boss enemies). It's worth noting that the game features a high difficulty level.
The default Flat Heroes game mode is the campaign; apart from that, the game also features special challenges. The production allows you to play on your own or with up to two other players in a co-op or PvP mode.
Flat Heroes features minimalist 2D visuals based on simple geometrical shapes, and a dynamic soundtrack.
