Quick Review: Flat Heroes Is Unexpected Fun in The Minimalist Form!

First off, a big thank you to the companies Parallel Circles & Publisher Deck 13 for providing me a review copy of their game! The version I played this on was the glorious Nintendo Switch and for the low price of 9.99USD you can get one heck of a game. The premise is quite a simple on: You are a cube of some color and you have to make it through 14 levels of increasing difficulty. Along the way you will jump, duck and dodge particles that aim to ruin your day. Facing 300 levels, this game offers you a full course meal of butt-kicking, Dark Souls influenced difficulty. Like seriously these levels get ever so trying and ever more challenging. Add bosses to the mix and you get to enjoy some hair pulling action.


Again the game is very minimal, both in design and frankly gameplay. This is not necessarily a negative or detracting factor from the overall game. For 9.99USD you are getting a solid 300 levels out of the deal and on top of that cake, 4 player insanity. Having a game that one can dip their fingers into with a group of friends make for a worthwhile and sometimes laughable experience. I have not felt edge of the seat tension like this game has been able to provide in a long while. Having this on the Nintendo Switch makes the phenomenon so much more easier considering that you already have two controllers to use right off the bat. The core gameplay remains the same for all players included, it just gives you more of a challenge to see who the better player is at puzzling-platformers. 

Outside of the core mode is a survival mode that presents you with daily challenges and ever increasing difficulty. If you are itching to kick your friends butt, then there is of course a versus mode, but I cannot give you much detail in that regard having not personally experienced that mode.

Now if you aren’t too keen on playing with others and you don’t really care for puzzle like gameplay then you will find that this game might not be for you. Being frank here, puzzlers are not everyone’s cup of tea, but very few games will take full advantage of what the Nintendo Switch has on offer. Flat Heroes makes excellent use of the HD Rumble feature and the small details that are produced from it are just awesome. In my honest opinion, having that feature supported means the world to me as a player. Plus having a game that challenges you at every turn with ever more increasing difficulty is something to still consider.

You can pick this gem of a game up from the official Nintendo eShop via your Nintendo Switch or online!
