Game Update: Vertical Drop Heroes v1.0.3d Now Available!

Hello everyone! I've uploaded an update for Vertical Drop Heroes, bringing it to version 1.0.3d. Here are the list of changes in this version:

- Added the Inheritance System: the descendant of your previous hero will always appear in the lineup, until you quit the game. If you rolled a hero that you like, this is a good way to retry the same build without having to rely on random rerolls!
- Enemy descriptions added for every enemy in the game, to give players a better idea of what each enemy does
- 6 new music tracks, so each level now has its own unique level music
- A new (optional) miniboss, the Demonic Rogue, will randomly appear on some levels. Does not activate until injured, and has one random hero ability. Drops a gem and 4 keys when defeated

7 ачивок за 21 минуту. Щедрая игра. В целом - приятный рогалик, со слегка испорченным началом за счёт тонны бесполезного текста. Следовало отправить игрока сразу в бой, а потом в передышке дать почитать.

I really like this game. It's 2nd up-down- scrolling action game. There are many characters, items, monsters, skills, quests and NPC. I never get bored.

The Roguelike is one of the most obscurely defined game genres, so I'm not sure this is technically one.
It's definitely a game I enjoy a lot though.

Nerdook Productions, generally better known for their in-browser flash games has delivered a solid game somewhat comparable to Rogue Legacy.
The player chooses one of three heroes with various traits, spells and weapons assigned randomly and sets off to conquer a dungeon that is about a dozen floors deep.

As the name implies though, each 'floor' is already quite deep, as the entire game is very much a descent through a random environment (seen from the side in colourful 2D graphics). The width of your screen is always the width of the level. You will fight your way down each floor to the bottom where a sealed portal lies. To unlock the seal you must defeat the boss or unlock it using 5 keys (which you also expend to open locked trapdoors earlier in the level and treasure chests) or, if the situation or an aspect of your character allow for it, destroy the wall surrounding the portal.

As you defeat enemies you gain experience and gold, the experience goes directly to your current character to empower him/her, the gold is primarily used between runs to get better base stats and upgrades as well as at merchants you encounter randomly on some floors that will sell you new weapons, traits and spells.

The whole thing wraps up nicely with a satisfying and challenging final boss.
One of the main things that sets this game apart from similar games (or specifically Rogue Legacy) is that not killing enemies is a viable alternative. Until you've killed your first enemy on each floor you'll be able to see and pick up pacifist sigils that are dotted around the level. Picking these up will grant experience and gold, same as killing enemies. It's not always a viable option (sometimes you'll really need to dispatch enemies in your path), but it's nice that there's an incentive to change things up every now and then and not kill everything in sight.

I've compared this game several times now to Rogue Legacy, which might not be entirely fair.
The question is, though, does this game offer anything that Rogue Legacy doesn't?
It does, and it's a game I recommend. However, if you've not yet played Rogue Legacy I couldn't recommend this more, so I would suggest playing that first.

Legit game. Tough and simple. Less cutomization than rogue legacy and less rushy than magicte, yet really similar to both games. Its also the same genre (upgrade in death)

main differences, here you can only upgrade health and damage. However.. you buy traits (and you have 2) and spells(also 2) in maps for new heroes. You also buy access to portals so you can jump right into map x (there are 10 maps ?). Spells are charge based and not mana.

The game is really simple. maps are short and you can only go down. sometimes you miss blocks (or destroy them) and you cant go up unless you get a teleporter. Anyway. maps are short and intense. Easy to die but its also easy to learn and truly grasp the game.

Careful when buying spells and traits, you dont pick them and some are better than others.

Fun game that's along the lines of Rogue Legacy, but not as difficult/grindy.

It's currently in the Humble Weekly Bundle, I recommend picking it up.

Way back when, I used to use Kongregate for my casual gamery fun, and the No.1 dude we all waited for to bring out a new game was Nerdook. That dude made the tightest games, every single one was super fun and interesting, and had a cool idea or mechanic behind it all. Imagine my surprise when I boot up this game I got as a freebee and see that familiar Nerdook logo pop up.

This game is a treat. Super simple gameplay that's hella accessable for anyone to just dive into, excellent single player AND multiplayer, sweet and smooth graphics and a brilliant soundtrack? Nerdook never lost his touch at all. Totally worth picking up, Vertical Drop Heroes is amazeballs for pick up and play fun.

Randomly generated levels that is fun as you die and progress at the same time.

It's 1 life per game though, so your characters are always different but you get stronger everytime you progress in your previous life.

Great little game to waste time when downloading something.

Let me tell you this: This 43MB small game is addicting as heck. I actually only started it up because I made a typo in the library searchbar. Then I went on and played it for a long time straight. Really great game with cute graphics and a memorable gameplay. One of the best rogue-style games out there!

Got this on sale for $2.49. Gamers who ignore the "PC Master Race", have no idea what they are missing...

This game is indeed a winner. Tried it out for a quick few min. Turned out to be 1.5hrs

Much has already been said, so, I will say the one thing that stood out to me....

Videos, make this game look Frantic & Chaotic. I was pleasently suprised, to find out it plays at a far more reasonable pace, than it appears. It's not a FREAK OUT AND BOUNCE ALL OVER THE PLACE SLASHING LIKE CRAZY game. You think about which way to go, which key to use, which block to break, which enemy to go after. It's neat, and somewhat difficult to explain.

The whole DIE & START OVER thing, sounds awful, but its not. Once you realize, getting as far as you can, in each run, IS the game itself, you won't mind. If you kept going, it would actually hurt the game. Each time you start, little, progressive possitive changes in your Character, make each run different. You suddenly can wizz past parts that were tough, go after that extra prisoner, snatch that extra key, and.....aaaaaaaaaand.... MAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVER! Wooot!!

Give it a try. It may be a love it or hate it kinda game, but, looking at the 95% positive rating (out of 12500+ reviews!), Odds swing in your favor.

Great little game. It's a rogue-like, action type of game. Very addictive and perfect for playing in short bursts. The best way to describe the game is to compare it to Rogue Legacy. If you like that game, you will more than likely enjoy this as well. Thumbs up on this one.

Addictive roguelike game with nice cartoon graphics and simple mechanics. You must progress through procedural levels going from top to bottom to finally fight with a final boss, while collecting resources for improving your heroes. Be careful, as it has permadeath, and you must choose a new hero whenever you die!
A nice point is that it contains a coop mode that can also be played with friends locally using split screen :)

Sure, Vertical Drop Heroes seems a bit similar to Spelunky on the surface. You are collecting tressure while dropping farther and farther into darkness. The game adds a numbe of wrinkles that differentiate it from Spelunky though. The difficulty curve is a bit less frustrating. The game has you level up while your playing and each time you level up you get more and more powerful until you are one shotting enemies... until you aren't, in which case the game gets challenging again. I find this much more pleasant than the cruelty of being killed by a neon green snake.

Using your recovered loot, you can permanetly upgrade your health and weapon damage which further changes the difficulty curve. You can also purchase portals to individual levels so that you can go straight to them. Some of the weapons you get are very fun. A spear does knockback damage, there is a buckler which will cause you block most attacks. There is a sword called a reaver that heals you as you damage others. These extra weapons add a lot of dimension to the game.

Overall, I have played this game for 4 hours, which is more than I have played any other roguelike and I forsee myself playing it for at least a few more hours. Definitely buy.

[Summary] (Summary first for clarity and people who don't want to read a lot)
Over all a quite bad game. It would be ok as a flash game to kill an hour or two but not worth buying. The only redeeming quality is the local co-op, but the game still has fundamental issues with their design.

[Combat]
Very repetative and dull combat. Hitting someone isn't an issue of hitting them with you weapon but more of them being in front of you when you strike (as in the weapon never connects). Every battle is composed of hitting the opponent then stepping back quickly so you can go in and stab them again (with slight variation if you still have your spell left to use).

[Store system]
You can buy two things that makes you stronger. More damage and more health. You can also purchase an upgrade for the passive coins on the maps (they are worth experience and gold, they disappear when an enemy is killed).

Spread out through the map are merchants selling a single ability each. These will then be shuffled into your random spells for your new generations. Most of these purchases are regretted as there is no way to confirm if an ability is good until you purchase it and use it.

The store system is over all very underwhelming and it feels like the store system was added last minute to balance the fact that levels only get harder because the monsters have more health and hit harder.

[Level design]
Throw in random blocks in a maze where you navigate to the bottom where the boss is. Add prisoners (that help you if you let them out) and treasures. Plus a quest per level that is either find Y of X or kill Z and come back to me. The map is not designed so that you can travel upwards, to combat this there are teleporters that bring your to the beginning spread out across the map.

You start from level 1 and progress upwards. Some levels have the ability to pay gold so that you can teleport there instantly (for a negligible price) in new generations. Monster design is pretty limited, the higher level the map is the harder the monsters hit. They look different and sometimes they might be ranged but all in all this doesn't change much.

[Stability]
Crashed only once every 30-45 minutes and never in a way that progress was lost. Starting the game is quick and easy through Steam Big Picture Mode so this was more of a nuisance than a problem.

I bought this game as part of the Humble Bundle, and it piqued my interest. I figured it would be a fun game to play with others, so I ended up buying it for my wife too... that was a mistake.

For one, the "Local Network" multiplayer option is unreliable. It seems as if at any hint of a network error, the game drops all connections and kills the server. Very frustrating if you make it far in a run. Furthermore, I ran into numerous bugs that crashed my client (problem 1) that meant that the server (my wife's machine) would quit too (problem 2). Combined with the constant lag, LAN multiplayer was simply unplayable. I know it was not my connection because other games work fine over LAN (e.g. Terraria).

Another gripe I have with this game is that it seems as if it were designed for multiplayer, but it handles it so poorly. Split screen is hardly any better than LAN, as the screen is split vertically into THREE chunks (one for the stats), which means you get much skinnier screens to play on, and have to potentially look on the other side of the monitor to gauge your stats... this wouldn't be so much of an issue if it were easy to discern what was going on. Instead, there are so many strange user interface choices that finding your character can be a hassle. All characters (be they your hero, any ally, an enemy, a clone, an NPC, etc.) all have the same color health bar, so in fights it's easy to get lost.

The poor user experience choices don't stop there. If playing with another person and they die, you have to complete the level before they are resurrected. If they died at the beginning, that means your ally cannot join for potentially a long time... not exactly "fun." On top of that, there is no option to "restart game", so you either have to suicide or exit + recreate the LAN/split game to continue. It's just such a pain to play with all these (intentional) decisions and (unintended) bugs.

This is a fun game with a lot of potential, but it clearly was designed from a gameplay standpoint to be played with multiple people, but from a UI standpoint of being played with one (or even fewer). I'd love to see an update, but I doubt it will come. I feel like Vertical Drop Heroes was a poor port, and could have been great with some more time.

Too many crashes to call this game good, frustrating when crash occurs on last level (happens to me 5 times).
Moreover, some not cool bugs (e.g. spikes sometimes can kill you even if you touch the square with spikes from below).

Купил эту игрулю перед хеллоуином на Хамбл Бандл. Т.к. я заплатил всего-то 5 баксов, ничего толкового я ожидать не мог, и был достаточно удивлён этой чудесной игрулей. Собственно суть игры в том, чтобы пройти вниз до конца уровня коих в этой игре штук 10 ( точно не помню, увы :( ) попутно убивая всякую нечисть вроде гоблинов и скелетов, собирая ключи монетки, открывая сундуки с золотом и освобождая других персонажей. На первый взгляд - ничего особенного, но игра довольно таки затягивает, и может вас развлечь вас на некоторое время.
Вердикт: ЛОЙС, вполне стоит своих бабок
