History

Stuff happened, then Flat Heroes happened.

Features

  • We have focused on creating a really tight, intuitive and responsive control, allowing players to move freely around the game area in a super fluid way.
  • The game features a unique and minimalist visual style based on the latest graphic design trends. Animations, effects and movements are carefully executed to offer a neat and smooth experience.
  • Up to 4 players will be able to enjoy an amazingly challenging experience with the Waves mode, an intense cooperative experience featuring over 90 challenging levels where they will have to fight many different enemies and multiple epic bosses. Solo players will find in this mode a really challenging adventure if that's what they seek!
  • And for competitive players, Flat Heroes includes a wide range of versus modes that offer completely different experiences and highlight very different skills. They are perfect to play with friends, but AI is also available to widen the possibilities or train hard.
  • Flat Heroes features a code-driven graphic style, meaning that all shapes and animations in the game are generated in code, which allows us to feature a really smooth and versatile animation set.
  • Thanks to the variety of modes and set-ups available, all players are welcome regardless of gaming experience!
