Apocalypse Heroes: Gameplay overview

Apocalypse Heros is a twin stick shooter game set in an apocalyptic world. Just like any other twin stick shooter game, Apocalypse Heros features a 360-degree moment where the characters can rotate in any direction they want. Generally, in twin stick shooters there are two joysticks, one for movement and one for shooting. But Apocalypse Heros adds its own twist to it.

Players have to control two characters at the same time where two joysticks are used for both the character movements. Players just have to move in the enemy’s direction, the game will automatically shoot.

The game’s art style is very retro. The characters are inspired by famous action movie characters. The game’s character style is similar to Broforce, a very popular side-scrolling game developed by FreeLives which also has characters based on popular action movies. The monsters in the game resemble demons from the popular first-person shooter Doom.
