    Overall, Unruly Heroes is a blast to play! I enjoyed learning each characters' abilities despite tending to stick to one play style in games that let me switch. Being able to switch characters on the fly is the perfect way to coax players like myself into experiencing fully what Unruly Heroes has to offer, and I'm glad that I did. The game always surprises and makes exploring super enjoyable, but with a bit of a stronger story element I think it would have been tied together just a little better.

    Unruly Heroes closely follows the trail left by the latest Rayman, creating a very original action platformer, which is characterized above all by keeping its mechanics fresh along all levels, with a very eye-catching visual design and care. Perfect for four players in local, but also for a single player experience.

    Unruly Heroes, despite having some unfair moments in its second half, is a game made by skillful people, featuring lavish content, gorgeous, bustling sceneries and diverse gameplay that keeps things from getting stale.

    Made by ex Rayman developer, Unruly Heroes is an excellent action/platform inspired by a classic novel like Journey to the West. A game that has been overlooked by many but that you definitely need to check out.

    Visually pleasing and at its core a very decent co-op platform-action it lacks finishing touches.

    Unruly Heroes features a mix of platforming and combat with four characters that you can switch between on the fly. With a handful of interesting bosses and plenty of mechanical variation between levels, the game never locks you into one style of play for too long. Ultimately, though, I didn’t find any part of it that much fun to play, which wasn’t helped by its leaden controls and uneven difficulty.

I really love the Boss battle of White Bone Demon, three phases which perfectly fit the story of her. When talking about White Bone Demon, it occurs me:

    At the beginning of Year of the dog, the Journey to the West will be officially launched. I will continue to play the Monkey King Sun Wukong. I will use the artistic image of the Monkey King to create a positive energy image. The two styles bloom and promote Chinese culture. I hope everyone can pay attention on it, thank you! 666!

    Fantastic game!
    A must play for anyone who loves platform games. It has such variety in the levels design from the beginning to the very end.
    Fantastic game!
    A must play for anyone who loves platform games. It has such variety in the levels design from the beginning to the very end. Beautiful level design with such fine graphics and art. Very enjoyable and well made bosses and combat. I finished it solo and it never felt unfair. If something hard you try it a couple of times to pass it. This game is a gem and one of the best platform games we got in years. Very underrated game and I am sad that not many people noticed this game. The devs made an incredible job here well done!

Es unaUnruly Heroes es una propuesta para todos, desde los amantes del score hasta los casuales que solo buscan despejar la mente de a ratos. Es una aventura con escenarios bastantes contenidos, pero con varias horas en total.

    Si bien, no desarrolla demasiado la rejugabilidad o el apartado multiplayer, la historia y la manera de contarla hacen que valga la pena en muchos aspectos.

    Unruly Heroes takes the characters from the "Voyage to the West" and puts them in a fun action platform with a fantastic art style. It's goodUnruly Heroes takes the characters from the "Voyage to the West" and puts them in a fun action platform with a fantastic art style. It's good overall, but there are some downsides. First, the art style is amazing but the animations have a certain "made with flash" vibe that I personally find extremely offputting. The controls are good, but coming from Hollow Knight they're not as thight and responsive and they kinda feel heavy and sluggish. Sometimes you feel like you don't have full control on what your character is doing. The platforming is decent and the characters have lots of personality and their different moves are cool, but fighting sometimes feels kind of random due to the controls.

    The whole experience is a bit underwhelming and overall it's... just not that fun, I'm not even sure why, maybe it's due to the level design, but it's a shame.
