    Eschewing the frantic speedrun nature of their hardcore League of Evil series, Random Heroes is a more laidback adventure that gives casual gamers the opportunity to get in on the fun.

    If you find yourself craving a retro 2D side scroller, Random Heroes is definitely worth a try. However, unless you absolutely need another game in your mobile collection, there's little reason to buy it on your device instead of playing it for free online.

    As it is, it's not a bad little platform shooter, and there is something awesome about Honest Abe toting a flamethrower, but it's not Ravenous and Wobblyware's best work.

    Random Heroes is a nice distraction for a couple of hours, but it lacks any lasting appeal.

    A solid and largely entertaining side-scroller with retro charm to spare. Random Heroes didn't wow us as expected, but it's another fine game in Ravenous' growing portfolio, as well as a cool retro homage to the good old days.

    The guns and costumes you'll be buying make Random Heroes a little more appealing, perhaps, but they're poor compensation for a wider lack of imagination.

    Random Heroes keeps things simple, returning to the old-skool format of placing one level after another with no real reward for progression; it's a trip down memory lane, but a brief and uneventful one at that.

    Random Heroes has lots to like, but at the end of the day it just doesn't come together.

    The key issue with Random Heroes is that in making the levels longer, Ravenous took out a lot of the replay value by just making the levels completion-based.
