Let’s face it: Your monochromatic game diet as of late has been abysmal. The cure? Hero Core, a black-and-white shooter that marries simplistic graphics to fantastic shmup gameplay. As the dinky rocketeer Flip Hero, you’ll explore a massive Metroidvania-style space station, encountering some reflex-testing bullet walls along the way. Incredibly, the game’s layout is completely up to you--but good luck taking on the game’s final boss right out of the gate. It’s the kind of engrossing indie game that reminds us that great things can come in visually stark packages.
We want to make your Saturdays better, and the best way to do that is recommend a great, easy-to-acquire indie game. If you’re looking for something fun to play, Here and Now Indie marks the end of your search.
