RedLynx Reveals 1000 Heroz for iPhone and iPad

Mar 31, 2011

Back in February, we hinted at a possible RedLynx title for iOS. Well it turns out to be true! And looks very exciting. Trailer at the bottom.

1000 Heroz, an original game for iPhone and iPad. With a unique mixture of platforming and racing, the game offers you something new to discover every day – for 1000 days.

Every 24 hours, you will take control of a new hero and embark on a treasure hunt through history. In total, there will be 1000 heroes to guide, 1000 levels to explore and 1000 relics to gather. The previous levels remain playable, and you can go through them to gather gold and relics for your Hall of Records.

“We’ve designed 1000 Heroz to last for a thousand days, so whether you play every day or play only occasionally, there’s always something new for you,” said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx. “It’s a new idea, where you can get your daily dose of Heroz right from the start.”

In addition to finding relics, you can also take part in daily time-based challenges. Each level will have its own Leader Boards, so there will be intense competition every single day. You can also create a Custom League to challenge your friends.

1000 Heroz has some of the physics-based timing of Trials with the jumping of a Mario-type game,” Ilvessuo said. “Your character really runs with their feet. It’s a blast to play every day.”

Originally teased as a mysterious game that lasts a thousand days, a new trailer has been released showing actual gameplay footage on RedLynx TV. You can also follow @1000Heroz on Twitter for updates.

1000 Heroz is currently slated for an April release. The iPhone version will be priced at $0.99, and the iPad version will launch at $1.99.

Features:

  • A New Adventure Every Day for 1000 Days
  • Explore 1000 Levels, Guide 1000 Heroes, Gather 1000 Relics
  • Daily Leader Boards Competition
  • Challenge Your Friends in Custom Leagues
  • $0.99 for iPhone, $1.99 for iPad
  • Releasing in April
