Controls

The online version of the game relies mostly on keyboard controls. However, the mouse can be used to proceed through dialogue boxes or navigate various menus.

  • Up Arrow, Down Arrow, Left Arrow, and Right Arrow - These keys are used to move your hero forward, backward, left, or right relative to the camera. Some narrow pathways can be followed using only the up and down arrow keys. The arrow keys can also be used to navigate some menus.
  • W, A, S, and D - These keys can be used as alternatives to the arrow keys to move your hero or navigate some menus.
  • Space Bar - The space bar is used to fire your gun when the cursor is on a distant enemy or object, or to use a melee attack when your cursor is on an adjacent enemy or object.
  • Enter/Return - The return key is used to throw your Hero-Cuffs at a stage's villain after reducing their health completely. It can also be used as an alternative to the mouse to proceed through a dialogue box or navigate some menus.
Basic gameplay on an iPhone

The iOS version of the game uses touch controls.

  • Control Sticks - There are two control sticks rendered on the screen. The first is used to rotate your hero's position, and the second is used to move the hero around.
  • Tap - You can tap the screen in different areas to attack other objects. When you are close to an object or enemy, tapping on them triggers a melee attack, while if you are farther away from the object or enemy, tapping on them fires your gun.
  • Tap and Hold - After you defeat a stage's villain, you can tap and hold your finger on them to use your hero cuffs after their health has been fully reduced.

Enemies

  • Henchman: Henchmen are all modeled upon the same design (excluding the henchmen in the hive, which feature a more insectoid model), with the henchmen on each level having different colors based upon the colors of their respective villain. Henchmen fire at the player. They may have varying health, and larger variants of henchmen exist as well, with more health.
  • Arachnids: Although they are modeled different depending on level (some modeled with Toxic Reapa's head, some like Black Phantom's Arachnix), both are functionally the same. They always attack in swarms and try to attack the player at close range, dealing minimal damage.
  • Sea Sentries: Sea sentries appear only on Planet Scylla, and are the only enemies on the level. They cannot move, only firing rapidly at the player until destroyed.

Bosses

  • Black Phantom: Black Phantom will summon Arachnix at first to attack the player, and then personally confronts them with his mace and energy blasts. His health must be depleted 3 times to end the fight, with him fleeing after each health depletion.
  • Jawblade: Jawblade weaves in and out of the arena through holes. He utilizes mines that must be destroyed before they explode. Although normally invincible, he will periodically stop at a position where a rock is above him, this rock must be destroyed to damage him. This must occur 3 times.
  • Toxic Reapa: Toxic Reapa begins the fight by summoning arachnids. He will walk around and spray toxic clouds around him.
  • Splitface: Splitface will quickly run around, charging the player, firing boulders and lightning as he goes. He can also swipe his blade very quickly, destroying health at a fast pace. His health must be depleted 3 times before his defeat.
  • Thornraxx: Thornraxx will fly in circles around the player until he charges head on at the player. To defeat him the player must use a melee attack to "swat" him.
  • Voltix: Arguably the most complicated boss fight, Voltix will stand directly in the center of 5 computers, firing at the player. He is charged by 5 pillars, rendering him completely invincible. The player must run up to each of these computers, deactivating them. After every one is deactivated, Voltix will become vulnerable, though he will still attack the player. After his health is depleted, the pillars will recharge and the player must repeat twice, with his attacks becoming more powerful each time. During the second phase, he will charge up and use a stream of lightning, and in his third, he will charge up and jump, with lightning lacing out in all directions when he collides with the ground. Notably, the computers can be used as shields for all of his attacks, and hiding behind them is the only way to avoid his third phase attack.
  • Speeda Demon: He will ride on his motorcycle until his health is depleted entirely. He never attacks the player.
  • Core Hunter: He will run around in circles, utilizing arachnids and mines as he goes. Like Black Phantom, his health must be depleted 3 times before his defeat, with him fleeing after every time his health is depleted.

Trivia

  • You can come back to any level as any player, as long as the default character has beat that level and the character you want to use has beat his/her level. For example, for Evo to play in the 2nd level, Furno must have beaten it first, and Evo must have beaten his level.
  • Nex is the only Hero without a level. If he had one, it would on the planet Mechna, battling XT4.
