Review

What do you look for in a game? Is it the action-packed gameplay that catches your attention or is it the mysterious story in the backdrop that slowly reveals itself with each page of the chapter being turned over? The dark elements in a game certainly build suspense and interest of the player and what better can you use to further mystify them than using a mask!

Dodge Hero is the latest addition to the App Store. The app has been developed by Swinapps Games and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 8.0 or any later version of the OS.

Dodge Hero is a very interesting game. Here, you play a masked hero who’s trying to dodge the attacks by enemies. These enemies are many in number and are flying over your head. It’s like you’re getting shot by a flying chopper and you know how difficult it is to escape such a fleet of bullets. But what makes it even more difficult to survive is that even the earth is not safe from these enemies. So while you have to keep an eye above, you have to keep one at your feet and make sure they both work in exact coordination or otherwise your fate will be decided very soon.

The controls are easy. You have to tap on the left side to jump to the left and on the right to jump to the right side. Apart from avoiding all the enemies, there are some red flames lying on the ground and if you can collect all of them, it’d help you unlock more masks which you can otherwise buy after clearing a number of stages. Each stage poses a new challenge with a higher quotient of risk. The gameplay, as I’ve already told you, is very challenging and as you proceed to the higher levels, the situation just slips more and more out of your hands. The boss levels genuinely check your patience as well as tests your strengths and weakness. A broken joint exposed to their bloody eyes is enough to tear you apart. So stay alert at every step you put.

But there’s one thing for sure; you’d like fighting in this valley of death. The graphics are top-notch and the characters have been carved out with sheer excellence. You can feel the darkness prevailing in the atmosphere around you. The use of colors is amazing and concept of masks has been utilized to the full.

So overall, it’d be an interesting journey when you travel through different stages of this game. This game is tough to conquer at first hand but after you keep practicing, you’re certain to make way for yourself. The app is available for free in the App Store. So what are you waiting for?

Pros: compelling graphics; amazing characters; challenging gameplay; boss stages; difficult to master; unlock new masks; free.

Cons: none.

I give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
