People hoping for a simple power fantasy will want to avoid being fooled by Badass Hero’s brutish name. Badass Hero is a roguelite, 2D platformer with a ton of shooting and dodging. The game takes places in a comic book with a matching aesthetic. Sure enough, the in-game hero collects ink that can be spent on upgrades upon death. The idea here is that if the game is a bit too difficult for some players, the ink-powered upgrades can help give them an edge. We found it pretty fun so far.
See a gameplay trailer for Badass Hero below. Badass Hero is out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, next year.
