I’ve heard some not so great things about Heroes, so I’ve never bothered checking it out on any of my frequent Netflix binge-watching marathons. I also skipped its recent reboot, Heroes: Reborn. Which was probably the right decision since it got the ax after only one season.
The tie-in game for iOS, Heroes Reborn: Enigma, sounds incredibly cool though — even to a non-fan of the show such as myself. It’s an Unreal Engine 4-powered action-platformer from Phosphor Games (the folks behind Horn and A Dark Meadow) that puts you in control of Dahlia, a young metahuman who must use powers like telekinesis and time shifting to solve puzzles and survive tests in order to escape captivity at a shady government facility. Since release, the game has scored well with critics and players alike, many of whom favorably compare it to Portal.
If you fancy snagging a free copy of Heroes Reborn: Enigma and saving $4.99, simply head over to this page on IGN and click the big red button that says “get free game.”
