- Tons of skills, abilities, traits and powers that you can unlock in the game, creating a different hero each time
- Unique combat system where proper planning is more important than quick reflexes
- Persistent upgrades allow you to carry forward progress between games, with a choice between increasingly expensive persistent upgrades or generally cheaper temporary upgrades
- Every enemy and boss has been designed to provide challenge and variety

This game is advertised to be multiplayer but the netcode is horrid and you will not last 5 minutes in a multiplayer game.

Enjoyable enough, the difficulty feels about right, challenging at times, but well within fun limits, get it on sale if you can.

A really awesome game from Nerdook

The game was awesome indeed, but I was really close to stop finishing it and give it a negative due to crashes. It was really annoying when I was at level 8, and I killed every monster in order to reach a higher level for the final boss and the game crashes. Everything from level 1, -30/40 min wasted. The game is sick if we take a blind eye on this situation, I enjoyed it really much.

Well, this is a great game. It's challenging, the graphics are nice but it can easily work on low-end PCs, there's quite a lot of replay value. Everybody who doesn't hate platformers will probably love Vertical Drop Heroes HD.

The only real downside to it is lack of Steam Cloud support, I managed to 100% it only in 3rd playthrough, because of deleted local savegames. But that shouldn't be a problem for most people.

This is a surprisingly fun game I picked up in a Humble Bundle. It does a fantastic job of getting you to balance improving your future characters by saving coins or using them to buy permanent upgrades and improving your current ones by using your coins for all sorts of different boosts and effects. It's fun, it's easy to pick up, and it has a surprising amount of depth to it. Highly recommend.

I'm not usually into platformers but I tried this one because I've always loved Nerdook's games. I'm very impressed. It has a nice progression system that let's you upgrade future generations of heroes and randomly generated maps so you don't get bored easily. I would recommend this game especially if you like platformers but as I already said I enjoyed it despite not being a fan of that genre.

Here are some videos I made of me playing through the game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVQwttSasNo&list=PLEUGIFN2mBj2WoF1YCLirzfC-ZUY_P3rF

Verical Drop Heroes really caught me off guard and exceeded my expectations!!!
At first let me share with you the best part of it i personally loved:It's a mix of some of the greatest and most beloved indie games out there!The platform mechanics and gameplay as well as the facial fun expressions are insired by Battleblock Theater!See for yourself ;)
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=486345481
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=486342875
So let us continue and talk about gameplay!So gameplay is really uniqua and actually a lot relaxing!You can even set attack to auto and jumt move throught the map.Pretty simple huh?You also have two special attacks one range based(bow,spear,arrows) and magic(you knew that was coming)!
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=486344606
The gameplay is really similar to Rogue Legacy!You can give your best shot thought the dungeons(10 levels with increased difficulty as you progress)!When you die you restart at your base where you can upgrade you health/damage etc,play trials and complete challenges!Furthermore every dungeon ends with you killing the Big Boss (or psssit you can use some keys,pick the lock and get the hell outa there! )
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=486345075
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=486343952
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=486343616
Last but not least as mentioned before there are 10 main dugeons,randomly generated,with a big amount of strong monsters and deadly traps waiting for you around every corner!!!
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=486344930

Overall impression:
Soundtrack 9/10 relaxing and tensive!
Gameplay 8.5/10 pretty fun and relaxing,but kinda repetitive after some hours.
Graphics 9/10 cartoonish
Complete score 9/10 Must have indie game for all ages and tastes!
Hope you enjoyed my review!

4/5 stars. Vertical Drop Heroes HD is like Rogue Legacy "lite"...in a very good way.
Most of my playtime with Vertical Drop Heroes HD has been with the GOG (DRM-free + original VDH) version. So my Steam stats don't reflect my total experience with this game.

PROS:
+Pick up and play accessiblity.
+Easy to learn, difficult to master.
+Fast arcadey action.
+Stages are randomly generated, assuring replay value.
+Unlocked abilities can be used with future characters, but characters can only carry 2 unlocked abilities with them at a time. This allows for very customizable gameplay, while keeping it challenging.
+Gamepad support: Xinput (360, or Logitech F series set to "X").
+Modest hardware requirements; most PCs built in the past 8 years should run VDH-HD.

CONS:
-No Linux support at the time of this review. But, given VDH-HD uses OpenGL, Linux users may be able to run it via Wine.
-No Direct Input (Logitech and generic) controller support...yet.

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.

Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a fun little game, good for playing in short sessions. It's like a lite version of Rogue Legacy + Spelunky. It's a good introduction for anyone who wants to start playing roguelike-like games, because it's not so hard as others in this genre.

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.
