In this game, you play as a feisty young heroine on a mission to rid the world of past heroes. These past heroes have long fell from their glory, choosing to “retire” with the money and fame of their old deeds in the distant past. The storyline builds upon the following: You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
Our hero (or anti-hero), Wryn wants to be the ultimate videogame hero, but the Greatest Heroes of All Time have already been chosen. Help her take them down one by one in an action-packed bid to claim the title for herself and show the world what a true hero looks like! This is a rather generic setting with a slight twist, but as far as the genre demands for plot – this is sufficient. There is not a lot of depth in the storyline, but that is not a cause for concern when you’re busy twisting time and dodging bullets Touhou-style.
I had a good run with that game for about 2-3 hours. On the highest difficulty level it can actually get rather fustrating and if the checkpoints are removed… it will attain the level of NES HARD. (Possible idea for HARDCORE MODE?)1
This game costs $5 and can be purchased on the Desura website or the developer’s website here. A steam key is guaranteed if greenlit. The character alone has me sold. Click on the first picture to get to the greenlight page.
