Tap Hero - pixel art arcade game

The game will be available in AppStore on 4th of August!

The game is already in beta test mode, if you would like to help me and try it, please leave your email in private message.

The game is almost finished, this is the app preview from iPads. Hope it's good enough ;-)

Dear TA community,

I was inactive for a while, mainly because I took a break from my first project and started a new one just for a relax. I thought it will be a short one but it took me quite much time for now. I love games from Happymagenta (fantastic job guys), they inspired me to create this project.

Tap hero is a small pixel art game. You must be fast and flexible because opponents don't sleep. They try to kill you, be faster but remember - don't miss or you will die. Try to stay alive as long as possible, get a full progress bar and watch how your hero performs a special attack.

Sword special attack

Hammer special attack

New opponents and hero death - added 12.04.2016

Coin system - added 01.05.2016

Knight hero animation loop - added 18.04.2016

New opponent idea

Last opponent idea

2nd type of blood hit

Different type of weather

Weather reaction for special attack

My dream is to be noticed by apple crew but without hard work it's not possible so soon I will update this thread with new content. Hope you liked it, great to be here again.

I'm loving the looks of this one. I love the artwork and from the gifs I know the gameplay will be cool. I'll be interested to see if you add rpg elements and if there will be cosmetic upgrades and weapons.

I'm also very interested in alpha/beta testing if you are willing to set it up through test flight.

Thank you for posting your work. I look forward to seeing more info.

Gameplay looks great and I think that the RPG elements are the MUST!

Looks great, you'll get a lot of TA live on this one.
If you plan on any testing, count me in!

It's like a knight version of unstoppable fist mixed with fist of fury
