Let's Play Hero:

I will be doing a Let's Play of Hero which is a game by Daniel Remar who made Iji. You can get it here. (Although I wouldn't exactly recommend it. The sequel is much better.

It is a basic shoot em up type game and it is a bit challenging. It is styled after older video games. You control a character named Flip Hero who only switches the direction he's facing when he's firing. His objective is to take down Tetron and and stop his mechanical army from taking over the world.

This will be a screenshot Let's Play. Hopefully I can update this from time to time. It shouldn't take too long probably.

Opening up the game...

Intro

So some guy made this in 2005 huh?

Oooh a fight! (screenshots unfortunately cannot capture fight scenes well)

Looks like this guy lost.

And then a gigantic explosion!

Let's start.

Huzzah! Let's see the beginnings of Remar's awesome work.
Don't take life too seriously. It's only a temporary situation.

Well this game is actually pretty basic. And hard.

Oh, I know. I've played it before. The second-last level is a pain to navigate

Level 5 is the only one I had to open up the game guide to get a map for. And I think I gave up on level 6, since giving 128 hits without taking a single one is just a little bit too much.

Level One


A list of info on the enemies before we begin. I wonder what the Annihilator looks like though.
Some instructions when we start.
You are a One-Hit-Point Wonder in this game and you have a total of five lives. When they're used up you have to restart the entire level.
Also, hugging a wall for a few seconds kills you. I don't know why.
You can fire five bullets at a time.
Let's go to the right.
Some enemies here.
You don't have to kill every enemy in this game. Only bother killing them if you have to open a door or if they're gonna get in your way. That said let's go over some of them.
Weak
This is a drone. They're the Mascot Mook for the series and they are The Goomba. They take 2 hits to die and all they do is chase you. They are pretty slow so they shouldn't be much trouble.
Somewhat threatening
These are Reavers. They take four hits. They also chase you... and can't do much else. However they are as fast as you so they're more threatening. Take them out as quick as possible.
That looks intresting.
That is a Supergun. One is hidden in every level.
It fires two bullets at a time. One slow and one fast.
If you die with the Supergun you lose it and it doesn't respawn. Had trouble with a certain enemy? Too bad! You'll have to restart the level to get it back.
Back at the starting room, this time going to the left...
ALL SHALL DIE TO THE MIGHT OF THE SUPERGUN!
Another basic room.
Going to the right!
Blocked!
The path is blocked by a barrier. We have to take it down by taking down a generator.
Upgraded drones.
These are crushers. They take 8 hits to kill and are slightly faster than you. The only way for them to hurt you is by ramming into you.
Back in the previous room this time going up.
These things are more annoying in Hero Core.
A lock.
These things are generators. You have to destroy them to open doors. They take 64 hits to kill and aren't that hard to take out. They fire bullets at you and sometimes fires a spreadshot.
Firing anywhere else won't do anything.
Finally!
Door's open now.
This is really an enemy preview.
Don't worry about the caged enemy.
Actually threatening
These are Hunters. They are slightly faster than you and take 16 hits to kill. Unlike most other enemies we encountered, they can fire at you. Take them out quick.
A boss room
That door you see on the right can only be opened by taking out a boss. The bosses quickly become degraded bosses in the levels after the one they were fought in.
These are spawners. They take 16 hits to kill. They can fire in an upward arc and spawn enemies to give you trouble. These should be taken out first.
HA!
Level complete.
cool
We get a level select option now.

Okay anyone know how to get the text under the pictures?

Try surrounding everything in || on each side.

Not letting this thread die. I was just getting screencaps from the next couple of levels. It's pretty tedious. Oh and if anyone knows better way to get the text under the pictures, please say so.

Level Two

Let's go in then.

Here's a map for reference.

Our starting room ladies and gentlemen.

  • Did I mention the music in this game is really chip-tuney and grating on the ears? Thankfully the music isn't so grating in Hero Core.

Most of the rooms in this game aren't that intersting. They definitely get harder though.

Tetron your security around here sucks.

You don't even have anyone guarding your generators.

  • When entering a room with a generator you should always look for a safe spot to hide from its bullet spray.

Uh oh. Looks like one got out.

I really don't have anything interesting to say for most of these rooms. They tend to explain themselves.

Again, you don't have to kill every enemy you see, unless they get in your way like that drone over there.

Up leads to a dead end for now.

Just crossing through.

KILL STEALER!

  • (The moment I got into this room, the ceiling collapsed around the hunter. I wasn't fast enough to screencap that.)

That Supergun. It mocks me.

Why are those things even caged up anyway?

This will help with what's up ahead.

Am I actually gonna fight any of these guys?

Well what do you know.

  • To deal with these guys, try to firing at them while circling them. Be careful, these guys can shoot projectiles so try to stay as far away from them as possible. If you have the Supergun you'll take them down faster.

I still think your security sucks.

Well this isn't the main base yet.

So why does killing one enemy open a door?

Piece of cake.

  • Updates should be a little more frequent now.

The captions appear, to me, to be under the pictures. I'm not sure what you mean.

It's pretty neat so far. I'm fairly sure screenshots are better than a video at this juncture, for most of this anyway. It's neat to see Daniel's beginnings.
Sakamoto demands an explanation for this shit.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm actually talking about the text that's bulleted. Someone on here got the text to go under the picture and captions without using bullets. It's not really much of an issue at this point, but it would be nice to know some markups.

Level Three


So there's actually gonna be more security time. Bring it on.
The levels are gonna keep getting bigger.
How does Flip Hero even get in the level anyway? There's only one exit in every level.
It gets a bit confusing to navigate this level.
Hmm, once again Tetron, your security around here su-
Upping the ante aren't we now?
Oh great more Hunters.
Let's not go up.
Just passing through.
You get in my way, I'll kill you.
Another kill stealer!
That's to the left so what's up?
Nothing interesting really.
Moving on.
I take it there's a generator nearby then?
Open sesame!
Not going through there yet.
There was a barrier there blocking us.
TAKE THIS SUPERGUN! YOU WILL NEED IT LATER!
That other barrier was a shortcut to here.

Things are getting a little more mechanical now.
It's starting to get a little cramped.
There was a barrier there before. You couldn't see it since I didn't screen cap it at the right time.
Seriously why are some of the Hunters caged?
Uh looks like something got out. And it's huge.
||

I don't like this...
I have to fight this thing and the door closed behind me.
Run. Run for you life.
These are Annihilators. They are really really dangerous. I really hope you have the Supergun or you will have a lot of trouble with this guy. They shoot slow bullets that clutter up the screen so you can't move around as much. They shoot three bullets in quick succession at you. And they shoot out four bullets diagonally and cardinally alternating between the two. I suggest you circle around them and using any availible scenery to hide from these guys until an opening shows up.
DIE!
Glad that's over with.
Made it.
That ordeal's over now.

Like poni said earlier, you use the pipe character. Surround a picture in those like so: ||http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Annihilator_9537.png|| and you can put it inline (note that the line has to start and end with pipe characters).

If you don't know how to type a pipe, it's the character you get by holding Shift and pressing the \ key.

Example:

Run. Run for your life.

You people will see level 4 later but level 5 won't be seen for a while. I'm having trouble killing the annihilator that opens all the doors.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
