Hero is a very stylized game; it's best described as a combination of NES, Atari2600 and C64 games but in pure black and white. It strives to recreate the feeling you had when you first played Metroid - you get no map of the game worlds, so you may have to draw your own. Hero includes six levels, eight awkward MIDI songs I sequenced in Jazz++, and some bonus features after you beat the game, including an extra difficult level. The game is rather short, but older people may find that it gives them that familiar retro feel. Version 3 increased the speed of the game and gave it a stable framerate, making it far less sluggish to play.
The game creates a file called herosave.sav in the same directory as the game, which saves your progress and control configuration.
