Spooky Heroes is a 2d casual platform game where you're going to play as a knight who tries to unveil the mystery behind the spooky events occurring lately : Undead rising at night, hordes of goblins, orcs, tritons, elves, yetis and heretics suddenly becoming hostile, monstrous creatures blocking the path of travelers...
At the first time, you play as a knight. You can move him using a controller or a keyboard. In this case, keyboard controls are costumizable and I recommend you change the default ones.
Graphics are colour full, but are quite normal. Plain 2d sprites well detailed but too similar to other games of this kind. Music and sounds are normal too.
You have basic attack and defend movements, and some special ones that refill time to time.
Later, you will be able to choose other heroes and the game has some nice features as developers tells in store page (find villagers, take quests, buy food and stuff, vehicles, ...) but I've tried to give it more than an opportunity and I was tired at the end of the first chapter.
Maybe I haven't found nothing in the first hour that forced me to go beyond and I've found the day/night cycles. When the night falls you can't see anything around. You only see two "meters" around you or four "meters" when you are near a torch, and this fact in a platformer with spikes, enemies that are running around, and platforms in motion have no sense till it has desesperated me.
I'll give it another opportrunnity? It's possible... but not now.
Every indie game have too much effort behind, this one has some qualities and maybe you will find something interesting than I haven't found, so if you find it cheap, play it and make your own opinion.
The game has achivements and trading cards.
