SPORTS HERO - new game by Cherrypick Games

Hi Everybody

Cherrypick Games is proud to announce that our new game titled SPORTS HERO is going to be launched this Thursday, AUG 4th!

If you remember and enjoyed playing the old-school track & field themed games on the NES and the legacy titles that followed you are going to love SPORTS HERO!

Play on your own or with a friend in the 2 Player PvP mode on one device and reach for gold in 6 different disciplines:

100m SPRINT
WEIGHTLIFTING
JAVELIN THROW
50m SWIMMING
110m HURDLES
LONG JUMP

We built a progress system in which the player gains XP points for every game he plays, levels up and unlocks the new disciplines in the process. Once a discipline is unlocked it can be mastered up to level 5 with each mastery level giving more XP for podium places but also requiring better results to be reach.

...and we have easter eggs! For example tap a couple of times on one of the lockers in the main menu, attempt to beat a best score in weightlifting, launch your javelin high enough or reach higher mastery levels in swimming to see little scenes sure to surprise and hopefully bring a smile in the heat of the competition ;-)

SPORTS HERO is free with ads and basic IAP options.

Check out the store preview uploaded to yt here for easy access: https://youtu.be/jTx-4mauQ1k

I WILL BE POSTING A COUPLE OF PROMO CODES IN THE PROMO CODES SECTION OF THE FORUMS LATER TODAY - STAY TUNED, I'LL PING HEAR BEFORE I DO SO!

Please don't hesitate to let me know if have any questions or comments!

Thanks & Kind Regards,
Mike from Cherrypick Games

Diving would have been amazing! I loved it on the old "summer olympics" on Amiga, it was unbelievably fun!

Yes, we are looking into control placement customization and will most likely include in upcoming updates. Thanks for your feedback!
