Random Heroes by Ravenous Games

(4.6/5) Random Heroes for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is a game that has you controlling some unlikely heroes, hence the title. There are many different playable characters, such as Abraham Lincoln ( 16th US President) and Neo (The Matrix). You have to control one of the characters and use a multitude of different guns to destroy a race of intergalactic zombie space invaders. The difficulty quickly ramps up, which annoyed me. The great controls from the League of Evil series have been carried over to Random Heroes, which is a very good thing. However, the quick gameplay wasn't carried over. The characters jump slowly, and sometimes one would miss a platform, but another character with the same abilities and stats would make it with no problem at all. There are three worlds to play through, each one with 10 levels, including a boss level. The music, just like the League of Evil games, is catchy and fits well with the gameplay. The graphic style is the same pixel art that so many of us loved from League of Evil 1, which is a major plus. The controls, as mentioned earlier, are extremely tight and responsive. The in-game shop allows you to purchase new characters and weapons, each with different stats and special abilities. Overall, Random Heroes is a good game for people that loved the League of Evil games, but are looking for a slower platforming game. Random Heroes is also great for people who like games such as Nintendo's Mario series. Random Heroes is available on the app store for $0.99.
