We talk about console quality apps all the time. Heroki is one of the
few apps that is actually console quality in terms of the level design,
graphics, and sounds. There is plenty of items to unearth and discover
in Heroki. There are numerous hidden passages and rooms in Heroki. There
is a long storyline across multiple levels in Heroki. There are even
three different control schemes in Heroki.
There is one area that Heroki is lacking - controls. Whether you have an on screen joystick, or you push the character, or you pull the character; the controls frustrate. I am playing Heroki and wishing it was on the PS Vita or Nintendo 3DS. Heroki eats the battery life of my iPhone quickly. Heroki is a downloadable only video game that deserves to be sold in the physical format.
The developer Picomy put together a masterful game. The publisher Sega has put their stamp of approval on Heroki. I just wish it was on a system with a real joystick we can feel with our hands, and/or a D-pad. It is a technological wonder that a game with such depth and quality could even work on the iPhone and iPad. Heroki is almost too good for the iOS platform.
The attention to detail in the graphics of Heroki is astounding. This is a console quality title. If Picomy was auditioning, they would be on the consoles in my book as soon as possible. The music and dialogue are fantastic. There are plenty of levels to play and replay in Heroki. Families can help this helicopter hybrid character save the day for his floating village.
The controls as well as the limited view range caused me way too many deaths. The lack of health items early on, as well as the lack of continuation points made levels take longer in Heroki than they should have. I really believe a better control methodology would have helped with the other issues. I hope Heroki ports over and there are sequels in the future.
