App description: Take to the skies and live the high life as a muscle-bound, superhero playboy. Catch falling babies, douse towering infernos, battle giant insects and thwack thieving crooks as you amass ever-increasing fame and adulation. The Hero is a lightning-fast arcade romp that sizzles with comic book style, sassy characters and superhuman gameplay.

TouchGen: "The Hero is tremendous arcade style fun. For only $1.99 it certainly packs a punch! 4/5 rating"

Though his true identity is unknown, the one they call The Hero lives the fast-track, whirlwind life of an A-list celebrity. Speeding from world-threatening crises to world famous interviews, hes a deliciously enigmatic mystery to his adoring fans and a fearsome force of destruction to his enemies.

The Heros arch-nemesis, the deranged evil screwball Dr. Hubbub, is at large once again and bent on taking over the worlds glitziest cities in a maelstrom of chaos and all out bedlam. As the world teeters on the brink of catastrophe, the Chief and his voluptuous secretary, Miss Rose, turn to The Hero to save the world from the diabolical plans of the nefarious Dr. Hubbub.

Fly to the rescue, arcing gracefully through gorgeous cityscapes as you speed to the aid of scores of helpless victims. Call upon Freeze, Boom and Zapp powers to wallop Dr. Hubbubs evil henchmen into submission.
