Highrise Word Heroes
Highrise Word Heroes is another free Android game that says a lot about itself just in the title name. When we saw this app for the first time we thought it would be about building words and it was, but at the same time the game had a lot more to offer so read on to find out what it was.
Well, Highrise Word Heroes takes you to a future world where our civilization is wrecked by a massive earthquake that leaves our two main protagonists on top of a skyscraper that is about to fall apart. They don’t have any other choice but run and this is where you come in – you must help them escape by making words up. The words themselves destroy concrete blocks that hinder our protagonists’ movement down. So with the blocks missing they can go down to the rescue. The whole process looks very much like the tasks that you get in games like Candy Crush Saga where you have to take an ingredient all the way down to the bottom of the screen.
Highrise Word Heroes goes one step further, however. The game offers features that you cannot see anywhere else – during the third level, for example you have to provide oxygen to the protagonists to survive. In addition the game provides music that fits the grim atmosphere in a great way. Most of the remaining features resemble what you would find in such a game – you are given a number of turns and if you run out of them, you fail the level. It is the same with the “oxygen” level – if your protagonist runs out of air, he dies. It is as simple as this. In terms of graphics and sound – the app is in 2D only but this is everything that is needed; the sound, however, is great and makes you feel like you are in this desperate situation yourself.
We did like Highrise Word Heroes simply because the game adds interesting new features to the genre and things that we haven’t seen before. In fact we were nicely surprised by the game since we thought it would be a boring one but it wasn’t. We think that if you are into this genre you will like the game too simply because, like we said, it brings more new features to the table.
You can find Highrise Word Heroes here on Google Play. The app is absolutely free.
