Zheros

A side-scrolling fighting game by Rimlight Studios, a team consisting of developers with experience in both mobile games and multi-platform AAA productions, designed with a great sense of humor. The action of Zheros is set in a science fiction universe, where we play the part of one of the two superheroes who face a mad scientist called Dr. Vendetta, whose plan involves mutating all living beings and their subjugation to his authority. During the game we traverse fully three-dimensional locations, moving to the right side of the screen – just like in classic beat'em up productions. In combat we take advantage of a rich set of moves and combos, and in the most difficult moments we can rely on powerful robots. In between the missions, we spend the reputation points we gained in-game to improve the skills of our superhero. Game is designed to be played alone or in local co-op.

Zheros for Xbox One 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.

Story

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.

Gameplay

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.

Technical aspects

Zheros for Xbox One 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.
