“Heroes of Loot” is all about having a no-frills portable dungeon crawler, and it excels at it. It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s frantic, and surprisingly, it’s quite cheap: a launch price of $3 makes this one hell of a bargain.
It’s another perfect example of a game that is definitely better on a handheld, a bit like LEAP’s “Squares”: fantastic in short bursts.
Already a success on Steam and mobile phones, Heroes of Loot is coming to PS Vita on September 22nd, according to a PS Blog post by Abstraction Games, the house porting the game to our beloved handheld.
All in all, “Whispering Willows” is a fine, fun game. There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with it, and I thoroughly recommend it to fans of the genre. However, I include this caveat: if you’ve fallen in love with what you’ve seen before playing the game, lower your sights a bit.
