Vertical Drop Heroes is a procedural platformer RPG hybrid with roguelike elements, where your hero adventures through randomly generated stages. Armed with a variety of skills and traits, you must use your cunning and reflexes to survive the dangers of each stage, until you face the final boss and uncover the truth behind the game!

Vertical Drop Heroes features randomly generated stages, enemies, and bosses, resulting in a very replayable game, all coded and drawn by one person in that unique Nerdook style. Bring a friend and try the split-screen local co-op or play multiplayer games over a network.

Love. This. GAME!!!

Nerdook's free Flash games have always been amongst my fave Flash games, alongside some of his other games like Cluesweeper (hint-hint).
And Vertical Drop Heroes is a perfect game. Whether you're ready to sit down and play for hours or even just kill a few minutes, whether you're just a casual player or if you've got your eyes set on getting every single thing this game's got hiddenread more just waiting to be found, or whether you love the game's roguelike elements or its old-school 2D platforming (which screams "Mario eat your heart out"), this game's totally for you.

Addictive off the bat because killing the bad guys is fun, but once you start playing with different strategies its hard to stop playing. I stopped playing this game for 2 hours and 22 min to go see spider-man... I wont make that mistake again.

Very simple mechanics, although they are fun to use. The random element in the creation of heroes and maps make the game very adictive and replayable. Also, it's very cheap :D
