Heroes Fally - A beautifully ridiculous endless faller

Hey everyone!

Some friends / co-workers and I have been working on a game since early June, called Heroes Fally. It's getting close to done and we'd like to get some eyes on our work so far for a little feedback. I'm still working on a video, so it's just screenshots for now.

The game features a large roster of characters that can be unlocked during game play at random, or purchased individually.
We're not posting up all the characters as of yet, but will be trying to reveal one a week for the next few months. I can show Hot Dog Man, seen here in the select screen (since he was shown today). Over to the right of that image is the scene each hero starts in, perched at the edge of a building, overlooking a city.

Each character will have a stats card attached to it, with some details and humorous back story, like so:

The player taps to launch their chosen hero into the air, from the rooftop. The goal is to avoid hazards, collect medals and make it to a landing on the next rooftop down, thus completing a level and earning further medals.

Hitting a hazard results in splatting on the rooftop below. Each hero has a "Super" which makes them invincible for a short time when activated. The effects for each super are unique for each character.

Our goal has been to design something that pokes fun at everything, capitalizes on puns and references to popular culture and is in general just addictively fun to play. Thanks for looking! I'm be working at putting some video together so you can see things in motion and hear the soundtrack. (It really helps to complete the experience.)

I'm disappointed Hot Dog Man's real name isn't "Oscar M. Weiner"

That's totally fair, Misguided. We thought about going with the better known Oscar but decided his brother, Herbert, just doesn't get enough love. One person can't always be top dog, you know?

Each character builds up energy in their Super meter during gameplay, by avoiding hazards, collecting medals and sticking their landing on a rooftop. Though each character's Super makes them invincible, the effect generated when activated is unique to each character. Here's Hot Dog Man's effects!

Happy Friday everyone. The end of the week is when a few of us on the team have time to whip up new artwork and do character reveals for our game. Here's a recent banner we had a lot of fun making, for our social media sites.
