It’s a new take on the tried and true beat’em up formula. First we took everything we loved as kid’s growing up in the 80’s; the video games, action figures, cartoons and arcades. We sat down and thought, how can we merge all of this awesomeness in to one project? Better yet, how can we achieve this being there is only two of us? Well, that’s where Radical Heroes was born!
Radical Heroes is a 3D 8-Bit beat’em up at its core, but that is where the similarities to other beat’em ups end! We have worked very hard to stay true to what made these iconic games so fun and addictive in there raw game play and brilliant simplicity, but have also tried to bring some new ideas to the table.
THAT'S RIGHT! The wait is almost over! On October 15, 2014 Radical Heroes:
Crimson City Crisis Alpha version 1.05 releases! It's been 4 months
since 1.04B hit the scene and the new 1.05 brings a hefty amount of
changes to Radical Heroes. The gameplay has been greatly improved, new
stage system and oh yea Co-Op! Enemies now have the same advantages as
the player; super moves, weapons and level items... yep they have access
to all of them. Making combat encounters interesting and unique. There
are many new items and characters to unlock and find. New
shops and new locations just to name a little of what is in store for those who have been
waiting for Version 1.05.
The world in Radical Heroes has been greatly expanded. Broken into ten
stages, Radical Heroes Alpha 1.05 will introduce a new stage system
where each stage is an expansive mini world! Radical Heroes Alpha 1.05
will feature two full playable stages "Crimsonville" and "Grave Danger"
in 1.05 to start, with others releasing in future updates. The two
included stages combined are bigger than the entire 1.04B world. Each
stage is segmented by checkpoints that require a key card to pass. By
collecting all of the needed key cards and defeating the stage boss,
stages are completed. Once completed, a stage may be revisited to
search for secrets, hidden objects or co-op with friend!
Above is a snap shot of a stage select and below is the start menu. Much work
has went in to the overall experience. One focus point was the user
interface. We have tried to improve the overall GUI quality and
functionality. There is now an options menu with controller support, key
mapping, visual quality settings and other essentials. A multiplayer
menu that makes directly connecting to your friends for some multiplayer
fun quick and easy! Remember this is still an alpha so you may from
time to time encounter a bug or two, just know we are always working to improve
Radical Heroes for you, our fans!
Like the user interface, the in-game hud has went through a few changes as
well. The image below will give you a full breakdown of all the new hud
features and what they do for you.
1. This is your current health (hearts) and cash level. At a glance you know right where you stand.
2. Top center of the screen is your time read out. It displays the amount of time you have played.
In the top right you will receive a short description of action taking
place in real time. An example; when you pick up an item like a street
chicken, it will display a message like "+3 Health".
4. At the
bottom center of the screen you will find an experience bar. The more
butts you kick the more experience you earn. Once the bar is full you
receive an experience point which can be spent on one of three
attributes, speed, strength or defense.
5. This is your map boy. It
gives you a quick reference of your surroundings. Pressing "M" will
bring up a full screen, real time read out of your area. See image
There is much, much more but we don't want to spoil all the surprises ahead! We are working on
a new gameplay video for you to feast your eyes on. We thank all those
who support Radical Heroes and in turn our dream. We encourage those who
have been holding out to take the plunge and get Radical Heroes. The
price is at $3.99 USD but on Oct 15th it will increase to $9.99 USD. We
have decided to increase the price for the simple fact that the
resources that we cannot produce ourselves, like sound and music, cost
money. With a price increase, we will be able to afford
quality resources that only make Radical Heroes even better. If you already have a copy of
1.04B, no worries, on Oct 15th your current Alpha will update to 1.05 and you are all
set! We wish all of you the best and a big thank you from us here at
MAD UNICORN GAMES.
