Crossy Heroes Windows Review
Ever since the release of Crossy Road, it seems like everyone wants to create their own version of the game. By which I mean completely ripping off the art style and name. This has led to numerous knockoffs that try to play and look like Crossy Road without all the wonderful charm. Is today’s game another example of that? Let's find out. Let’s take a look at Crossy Heroes for Windows devices.
What Is Crossy Heroes?
When you first hear the name Crossy Heroes, you likely expect a straight up ripoff of the classic Crossy Road game…but with superheroes. And, to be fair, that sounds pretty awesome. However, that’s not exactly what we have here. Instead, you’re in the middle of a stage and swipe up, down, left, or right to fight enemies. So you’re not exactly crossing anything…
How Is The Game?
Crossy Heroes is actually quite an interesting game. Because it doesn’t straight up rip off Crossy Road, it doesn't seem like a totally shameless ripoff. However, because that’s the case, they should have called it something different so they wouldn’t draw that comparison at all. Oh well. But we should also talk about the characters. Because they obviously can’t use real copyrighted superheroes, they had to create their own. And boy are they interesting. You have the Batman lookalike named “Bad Man In Black”, the Iron Man lookalike named “Major Copperman” and then there’s “Pancake Cook”. Yep. Pancake Cook.
The Bottom Line
While the game does lose some points for its mild similarities to Crossy Road, I give it credit for trying something original. The characters, while pretty strange, are actually pretty unique, as besides the Batman and Iron Man lookalikes, all other characters are totally original. Even though from now on I’m totally calling Batman “Bad Man In Black”. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?
