Minor Update: Vertical Drop Heroes v 1.0.3b is now available!

27. heinäkuu

Hey everyone,

I've just uploaded a minor update to Vertical Drop Heroes that should address some minor launch issues. It should download automatically via Steam and you will notice the version number has been updated. Here's a list of updates and changes:

- Fixed "block_health" crash in Network Play, it should be either eliminated or greatly reduced now.
- Added support for directional pad control on controllers, in addition to the current analogue stick
- For Split-screen/Network play, fixed the Death Box to show the correct message when only one player is dead.
- Nerfed Shadow Squids: they should now only fire the annoying homing missiles after they have been injured for any reason.
- Buffed Omnislash: you no longer take damage when Omnislash is active.
- Reduced the damage of spikes in New Game Plus and after completing the game.

EDIT: - Added dpad support for menus
- Fixed autoattack off disabling ally/skeleton attacks
- Maximum one red dragon for each player... no more red dragon screen spam.

Thanks for the feedback and support so far, keep them coming! I will continue working on any bug reports and include them in a future major update.

Huh, I didn't expect Vertical Drop Heroes HD to be a rather intricate Rogue Legacy-style game where you can choose between heroes with different abilities and level stats up permanently, I thought it would be something simpler.

Don't know about the longevity yet (haven't unlocked the more difficult New Game+) but compared to Legacy I prefer the short levels with a mini-boss at the bottom instead of having to grind a while before getting somehwere. Here there's instant gratification including temporary level ups you lose after dying and permanent upgrades that are purchasable in the levels and in the hub with gold (which you only lose between runs when rerolling the heroes offered). Keys are important as well as they're used for multiple purposes like opening chests, removing obstacles, freeing computer controlled helpers or even bypassing a mini-boss with five keys. And there's more, for example short quests that get you XP, water that flows around when blocks are destroyed, the possibility to warp back to the top and lots of tombstones which e.g. spawn artifacts but also enemies when activated. Enemy variety is high, graphics are good enough for a 5-7€ game and the artstyle reminds me of Scribblenauts (in a good way).

Almost forgot another nice touch, you can play as 'pacifist' and gain more XP by picking up symbols that disappear after killing one enemy (kills by ai companions don't count). Also levels have modifiers, enemies with less HP but more damage, two bosses instead of one etc.

A few cons: No online coop, only local and LAN. Sometimes enemies spawn right into me and when the health is low can lead to an unavoidable death. Or there's a bunch cuddled together and it's impossible to fight them without losing a lot of health (but avoiding those mobs is an option most of the time, plus health gets restored when leveling up which happens frequently). Lastly the controller config needs work due to a few inconsistencies and bugs and button icons would've been appreciated. Overall the controls are fine though, very responsive.

So thumbs up from me so far, a pleasant surprise.

PS If someone cares for that kind of stuff the achievements are done right here, reasonably difficult and going for them will teach you some of the game's mechanics.

Highly addictive Rogue-like game, the gameplay is really fun and a lot similar to Rogue Legacy but instead of side-scrolling you slide down till you reach the bottom of the level where you fight a boss then you can proceed to the next stage.
at the start of each playthrough you have a choice between 3 randomly generated characters with different attributes, choose what best suits your type of playing and proceed, you character starts at level 1 everytime but there are upgrades you can buy before starting the game with the money you collected from your previous runs, you can even buy level ups to your character and skip stages with that money.
the game is really fun and addictive, the soundtrack is good and the graphics aren't bad at all, and like all Rogue-like games, if you like it you will end up spending tens of hours in this game and you will never regret spending your money on it.
highly recommended of course.

Vertical Drop Heroes HD is an amazing Rogue-like platformer with progression ( upgrades ) .
no this is not a flash game.

It starts off, with normal spells and weapons and characters, but the more you play, the more upgrades you unlock and spells/weapons/traits.... etc.

With Singleplayer, Local (Splitscreen) and Online Coop.

A lot compared this to Rogue-legacy but you should understand they're wrong, they are not the same in gameplay, just in the aspects of upgrading the (Next) character after dying, to progress more into the game.
if i were to compare it, i would say its more like spelunky mixed with Maple story.

The game has a great level design and artwork, its really colorful and refreshing and somewhat addictive you just cant stop looking at it, i really love this style.
The game soundtracks are good the animations are great, the concept of the game is brilliant.

Randomized levels and characters and the ability to (Re-roll) to get a set of 3 other different characters to choose from,
Either ranged or melee + shield or a huge axe, and man more, each with a certain Ability, Skill, Trait, Weapon, Attributes, so the games price is very reasonable and a good deal.

A very huge selection of awesome Spells and abilities, From (Shadow = invisibility ) to Dragon summoning! You can summon a dragon to fight for you how awesome is that !, i really mean it a huge selection of spells to unlock.

The gameplay is basically on the game's title, you keep going down, and each level has a (SideTasks) that either gives you Exp or Gold or DMG or whatever, and asks to ( kill XX monsters or find secret item and other more ) they are fun to do and benefiting.
At the end of each level, you will find a Guardian which is basically a boss, need to kill it to progress to next level, At each level they get harder and harder.
you also have the ability to (start from level 2 .. 3 .. etc ) (Like spelunky) so you dont always have to restart from level 1.

With the more you progress in the game the harder the enemies get and the boss fights gets crazier!.
The Game is pretty challenging on its on way.
Make no mistakes the singleplayer is 100% done and perfect, and the multiplayer is basically 2 players adventure, or you can also Do a local SplitScreen.

"Note that this game has a very great replay value so its not a One gameplay thing."

Once you finish the game you can unlock NewGame+ (NG+) That has its leaderboard, and extremely harder than the original game and you get to keep your progress and upgrades.

If you are an Expert with platformers, it would take you 3 to 4 hours to finish this game, and to unlock all the abilities and upgrades another 10+ hours to add so thats really great.

The Good thing about Multiplayer is that the enemies are harder and gives more experience, so its harder to play with a friend which is good : ).

i LOVE gamemaker studio games they are simply amazing this is my 2nd most favorite game created in it, Valdis being my first, And i diffidently recommend this game to Rogue-like platformer player out there. 10/10

it is sad some voted this down because they heard its like rogue legacy and got disappointed.... so they felt mad and failed to see what a beautiful game it is on its own.

Very lovely casual, yet addictive RPG that rely on simple mechanics with engaging randomly generated levels + characters. Well worth the asking price!

Characters are generated randomly before each run, with random assortment of skills and traits. There's a nice touch with the hub world (a but empty but nifty)

Graphics are simple and clean, with each monster bearing it's own personality. But don't admire them for too long, you'll be cutting them down left, right and centre!

Music is simple, changes every few levels. The first song in the early levels remind me of Maplestory, which is quite nice~

If in doubt, try out the flash version that's available online free to play, its obviously less polished than the current version, but gives enough away to help decide whether to buy or not. Hopefully there will be new additional content in the future! <3

+ Replayabilty
+ Unlockables
+ Random characters + perks similar to Rogue Legacy
+ Mini side missions
+ Destructible terrain

- Movement feels a bit slow sometimes, not sure if it's the gameplay or the framerate
- Becomes a bit too hectic in the later levels
