Arcade Pixel Brawler Tap Hero Slashes Onto Android
After launching on iOS to rave reviews in the latter half of last year the gory pixel art brawler Tap Hero has made its way onto Android devices. This arcade style beat em up from indie developer Michal Walaszczyk is a vibrantly animated test of reflexes that evokes shades of games like One Finger Death Punch with its chaotic simplicity. Players take on the role of a nameless knight as they face down hordes of kooky pixel art enemies in rapid succession.
It’s up to players to keep their knight alive by tapping on either side of the screen to slash at incoming enemies before they can do any damage. Each enemy type attacks at slightly different speeds which forces players to stay on their toes as a single missed attack will leave them open to a killing blow. Players can build up their combo meter to unleash a cool looking special move that obliterates all the enemies on screen in epic fashion. There’s also upgraded armor and weapons for players to unlock which helps to give the whole affair a bit more longevity. If you’re a fan of arcade style fighting games you’ll likely want to take a gander at Tap Hero.
Tap Hero is free to download on Android and iOS.
