We’ve all played games with one hero, or maybe a few—but 88 in total? Well, that’s just crazy. And yet that’s exactly what you’ll find in 88 Heroes, a retro-stylized platform game that truly features that many playable characters, spread across 88 different rooms in enemy Dr. H8’s base, and each stage must be completed within 88 seconds. Yes, really.
Luckily, the characters live up to the absurd premise. You’ll play as a hamster in a ball, a bomb-laying chicken, a basketball star, a snake that winds through the stage like in mobile classic Snake, and plenty more ridiculous leads. I can’t help but admire 88 Heroes for its dedication to its shtick, but it also looks like a pretty fun old-school action game in the process.
