An adventure fangame heavily inspired by Kill the Guy. It features floatier physics, so be aware of that if you're a physics purist.

Overall its quite solid. Production is good throughout, though the menu/loading times are kind of tedious in weird ways. Visuals are good and music is fitting in that style. It has a good balance of effects to amplify the game without feeling excessive or distracting.

Platforming wise, stages are distinguished by their gimmicks. Nothing new is really brought to the table here but the classic gimmicks it uses it tends to do fairly well with a single exception. Gravity flippers are present throughout the game and they oscillate heavily, and there are a number of jumps that become impossible if you hit them at the wrong point in their oscillation which tends to be more annoying than interesting.

The bosses are where the game is hurt for me. They're not bad, inherently, and have good production and keep the player engaged. The problem is they have that old-school design philosophy where its just kind of a string of pattern attacks with no tells, many of which will gib you and require a fair bit of learning which is a bit tedious to get through. Most of them are not that long or hard, so its not that bad but it certainly was a downer and a weak point in the game for me. The bosses are inspired by classic games that have nothing to do with the stages they're in, and its not a problem thematically, but if you like seeing classic video game characters reimagined, you may get a kick out of some of these.

Overall it is good and it is worth playing. I'd play KTG first for sure, but if you like that and want more, this should be right up your alley - its a well made adventure that has aged well enough and has plenty to offer.

This game is great for the most part, last stage is kinda boring but otherwise it's definitely worth playing and beginner friendly. High production value and (mostly) good bosses.

This game is pretty good! It really captures that of an older adventure game visual-wise and gameplay-wise which is something I can 100% respect it for being able to pull off. The needle is decent, nothing special aside from stage 2 & 5 which I really enjoyed. As for the bosses, they are relatively fun but the learning process can sometimes be a bit of a drag due to things you just couldn't react to or simply not knowing what to do, however, this isn't the case most times!

To summarize - Hero Again is an accurate homage to older adventure games and is really fun for casual play or maybe perhaps a nostalgia boost? Whatever the case, this game slaps.

Old school adventure with neat gimmick platforming. Some of the bosses, particularly the third and second last, are kinda meh, with some weird instagibs. The final boss is quite fun though. Overall a nice oldschool IKTG-inspired experience.
