Zheros for PC, XONE and PS4 is a side-scrolling fighter game, set in a science-fiction universe referring to classics of the genre. Game was developed by an independent French studio Rimlight, whose members gained their experience in production of both mobile and AAA class games, such as Gears of War, Unreal Tournament 3, Crysis 2, Crysis 3, League of Legends or Ryse: Son of Rome.
In the game, we join the titular Zheros team, and play the part of two super-heroes: Mike and Captain Dorian, who face a mad scientist known as Dr. Vendetta. His diabolical plan involves mutating all living beings in the cosmos, and subordinating them to his power. As you might guess, our protagonists have to deal with hosts of various mutants sent by the scientist, and in the grand final of the whole history we deal with Dr. Vendetta himself.
During the game we traverse fully three-dimensional locations, such as futuristic cities or interiors of secret laboratories, constantly moving to the right side of the screen – just like in classic brawler games from the 90s. On our way stand various opponents, including crazy robots and different bio-mechanical creatures. Fight with each enemy is a bit different; in fights with enemies we take advantage of a rich set of moves and combos as well as an impressive range of guns with a broad spectrum of possibilities. In the most difficult moments we can also use powerful war machines that help in getting rid of foes once and for all. Developers did not forget also about the development potential of both heroes themselves and their weapons.
Zheros for PC, XONE and PS4 is distinguished by an intuitive, but complex combat system that allows using different styles, weapons and special abilities. Despite obvious references to classics, the game boasts high quality three-dimensional visuals kept in a cartoonish style. We can play solo as well as in a co-op – making use of complementing abilities of characters.
