Light Hero Review

When you think of all the great space shooters, you think old school with Life Force, Gradius, and those crazy games only in Japan. Those were games that made you want to bust out into a seizure from the sheer difficulty of it while at the same time bobbing your head back and forth to the awesome techno background music. Quite frankly anything that has techno, trance or house music going on the background can make it that much better. While you’re not getting this in Light Hero, what you get is a simple shooter that asks not really to shoot, but to navigate and test your coordination.

Video Review

Take the Blue pill, no wait, Pink

You’ve only given the commands to move your ship and switch what color your aura/laser will be in order to line up with incoming gems on the screen in an attempt to catch as many as you can per level at the same time, avoiding astroids, finding secrets and picking up upgrades. Seems simple, but this game forces you to get into a rhythm as you play further levels. The concept shouldn’t be difficult but (*argh*) if you died once in a level, don’t worry about it too much because you might die another 5-6 consecutive times before you get through certain areas. Paying attention is key.

While this is never going to challenge games like Skyrim for greatest game ever, it’s a game that can easily frustrate the simplest of players. If you get going early and avoid death you can easily conquer this. Other than that, Light Hero is a simple way to kill time at work.

Final Thoughts

Light Hero is a game made to kill time at work, yet if you like going old school for a bit feel free to try this out. The only thing I truly enjoyed about this was the soundtrack.
