Meet Helmet Hero - a hard-headed speed freak with who lives to break stuff! From Chainsaws to Jackhammers and Snowblowers to Hair Dryers, Helmet Hero has converted them all to wearable helmets! Use these helmets to demolish your way through 45 action-packed obstacle courses with speed, accuracy and quick reflexes!

Unleash SUPER HELMET HERO and become invincible! The more destructive you behave, the larger Helmet Hero becomes...until he completely fills the screen and becomes UNSTOPPABLE! Crush everything in your way!

String together multiple smashes to earn score multipliers that catapult your score up the leaderboards.

The pursuit of perfection will consume you!

How To Play

Each world contains a set of helmets. Collect them and use them to demolish your way through the obstacles in that world. You can swap helmets instantly at any time with the swipe of a finger. In the forest, use the Chainsaw helmet to mow down shrubs and trees. In the Ice Caves, use the Snowblower helmet to shred Frosty.

Control Helmet Hero's running speed to affect your score. The faster you run while smashing obstacles, the more points you are awarded. String together enough smashes without missing and you will transform into SUPER HELMET HERO and become invincible! Each time you transform, SUPER HELMET HERO grows larger and you increase your score multiplier.

Unlock Survival Game Mode to test your helmet-swapping skills in the biggest obstacle course ever built!


You're scored based on accuracy and speed. Each obstacle smash awards points based on how fast you were running when you smashed it. Once you master the helmets in a particular level you'll be able to trigger score multipliers all the way up to 8X! You keep the score multiplier as long as you don't miss an obstacle.


Three difficulty settings allow you to play at your own pace while experiencing the game.

CAKE WALK (easy) - 8 lives, 1x points
NORMAL (default) - 5 lives, 2x points
HARD-HEADED (hard) - 1 life, 3x points (only for the brave and high-score thirsty speed freaks)

Earn red rings for easy, yellow rings for normal and green rings for HARD-HEADED!

If you're really gunnin' for a top position on the leaderboards, play HARD-HEADED mode once you grasp how to play. All points in HARD-HEADED mode are tripled!
