Flat Heroes is a fast-paced, minimalist and very intense action platformer featuring super frenetic sessions for 1 or up to 4 players. Each player controls a little square, but don’t be fooled by its apparent simplicity. Thanks to its tight controls and fine-tuned design Flat Heroes will make you feel like a ninja while trying to survive wave after wave of challenging enemies and bosses in over 300 handcrafted levels. The game also features a unique minimalist style based on graphic design approaches like Flat Design and Material Design. Grab your friends and loved ones, it’s time to be a Flat Hero!
After a few years working in AAA game development we finally had the courage to form our own 2 person studio and work on our dream project. A highly polished platforming game with tight controls and a lot of care put into game-feel. To be played on your own or with your friends. This is how Flat Heroes came into being.
