Unruly Heroes is an action platform game developed by the independent team at Magic Design Studios, for which it is a debut project. The source of inspiration for the developers was Journey to the West - a classic Chinese novel by Wu Cheng'en.
Unruly Heroes has us battle various opponents using one of the four heroes differentiated in terms of appearance, weaponry and combat skills. The gameplay is shown from the side and consists of wandering through vast, fairy-tale levels, avoiding traps, jumping on platforms and fighting enemies. Fanciful opponents like anthropomorphic crocodiles and pigs stand in the way of the protagonists - led by powerful bosses, which we eliminate using melee weapons and special magical attacks. It is worth remembering that the attacks can be chained into effective and deadly combinations.
The main pillar of Unruly Heroes is the story mode, which can be completed both solo (controlling the selected hero) and in the company of up to three friends. In addition, the devs have given us a PvP module, which enables us to play online duels with other players.
Characteristic feature of Unruly Heroes are the high quality visuals, presenting themsleves like a moving painting thanks to their original design. The whole thing is complemented by a catchy soundtrack.
