Penalty of Heroes is an old school side scrolling hack ’n slash game much like Golden Axe mixed with Secret of Mana. It takes advantage of the power of the Xbox 360 in order to show off a mix between 2D and 3D, using modern shaders and effects.
Penalty of Heroes takes place in the world of Nimo where you control four young warriors, either by yourself in single player mode or with the help from up to three of your friends in co-op mode. Fight your way through ten levels containing hordes of enemies, big bosses and an engaging narrative. You will have unique characters with different magics and weapons, as well as a customizable powerup system to aid you on the journey to find out the price of becoming a hero.
Penalty of Heroes won “Best Exhibition” at the Gotland Game Awards 2009.
