Part 2 is coming out december 2016, according to the app's facebook page you guys!! I love this game! I played it so many times that I woke up one day to find that I dreamed of being a superhero! I love how the college has rules & polices that you get to read about sending that college vibe, the history was well thought out & how the tests your character takes and training with other students is not too hard. I hope part 2 is longer, we can save more lives, & who ever our character dates proposes LOL!
I started this game and thought it was silly fun... So hesitantly I bought it thinking it would be at least a good time killer, then..... Bam! The story got really intense and good! Character development and plot twists like no other! Honestly my favorite game I own!!! Seriously do not judge it by the free trial! This game has an amazing story line! Be prepared to have your heart strings ripped out!
I loved the story that we were put into. It was well crafted, funny and immersive. The only thing that bothers me is that I have to wait for the next part. Seriously when will it come? I've been on the edge of my seat for months waiting for the next piece of this fantastic world that was made.
I've gotta say this game is absolutely incredible. And if I'm right since this game contained issues 1-4 out of 12 that means we have two more to look forward to. I can't wait to see how they build upon the already amazing story structure and character development. If you like the heros rise series then you'd definitely wanna check this out.
I had trouble putting it down Haha. Sure the first few free chapters where a bit long and boring but I still bought it and I am so freaking happy I did. Some stuff was hard to follow cos i'm not american I'm australian so some references went straight over my head but I loved it all the same. Trying to picture a cold december was probably the most difficult. XD 10/10 <3
I'm not into these things at all, but this is fun and really makes me feel like I am creating my own Journey !
I loved this! Such a great game. All of the characters were amazing. At first I thought that every other student was a potential love interest, depending on what gender your character likes. Which was why I was disappointed that my character was single by the end of my second playthrough because Stoic is not a romance option. It doesn't matter too much because Dirty Girl is bae. Great game, can't wait for part 2.
CON: Need a checkpoint or manually save function. If you pressed next by accident mid-game, you'll have to start from the beginning to be able to read that page. Same if you chose one choice but decides that you wanted to change that choice...you have to start over. The choices are good, but it happened a few times where I didn't want to chose any of the available choices. Pro: it's well written and makes you want to read what happens next. I'm really enjoying it.
I've played this game more times than I can count and I've romanced everyone possible! Still working on getting all of the secrets and achievements but I'm looking forward to another play through! Definitely worth the money, in my opinion! Seriously excited and anxiously waiting for Series 2!!
I thought this game would be boring and short, but its nothing like that. Its amazing and has a really good storyline. It lets you pick exactly who you want to be and what your character is like. Definitely the best game I've played from the app store.
If you enjoy CYOAs, or specifically the Hero Rise series, this is a must buy. The game is enjoyable, memorable, and quite lengthy. Unfortunately, despite a cast of interesting characters and events the game consistently gives you more options with no effect than options with input on any outcome. The majority of choices don't impact an event but rather choose which event you take part in. Add in the barely acceptable multiple choices with no response differences and there are quite a few irritating points.
Too bad this isn't free. It isn't enough to have only access to 2 chapters for free, you have to have ads too? $4? There are games that let you choose your own path for $1 that have graphics. Sure the story's good even in the first 2 chapters, but $4? It's not worth the price.
Great read just wish we could bend the rules more or be even more ruthless. Add a sword or something i personally would of cut off downfalls are if it would save trees arm. Really hope my character can go down a darker path
Overall its fantastic. Although there are one or two typos or poor grammer but other than that sweet game. Im only wondering if ee have to pay for the next issues as well
How am I supposed to know what the game actually feels like if you cut it off before I really get to do anything? Seriously! If you extended it to say chapter 5 then that'd be a sure way to see if it's worth it.
I love the story and making my own choices, but it's even better with all the stats and things like insurance claims. I'm not too far in, but so far it's really fun.
So when I first seen this game, it took me awhile to actually pick it up. I thought for sure it was going to be lame. BOY WAS I WRONG! It was an amazing story with, memorable characters that were very well fleshed out. I was can't wait for the next part! Seriously way to go, I'm totally hooked :)
Likely ties with Zombie Exodus for my favorite CYOA of all time. Healthy doses of silly are also mixed with plenty of action, romantic possibilities, and emotion. I wish I had not done a playthrough in one several hour sitting. Writing is almost typo free, and the few errors there are, are insignificant. Fell in love with the characters and wish the sequel would get here sooner than December. Author honestly could have sold this for more for how good it is.
It was a great book and everything. But it was sorta everywhere and it felt like the writer just wrote what came to mind first. I may be wrong but other then that this is a great book and would recommend to everyone who loves reading.
I loved this game, I actually felt like I was in it! Also, when the second one comes out will we have to purchase it because I played through this one an would like to fully play the others.
It's as deep as you want to make it. From youth to adults it's funny and says something about your morals. Better than TV. Where's this second one they're talking about?
So l can play the next episode.Also very sad to see the girl's fate in one of the chapters.
Very well written and engaging. Decent variety in choices. Some game mechanics are redundant or unnecessary, but they don't necessarily detract from the game. Looking forward to part 2!
I absolutely loved this story! The characters were interesting and fun to learn more about and the concept of the story was great! As the story progressed I became more attached to each character and was surprised by the plot twists along the way. I am eagerly awaiting the next part of this brilliant story and will no doubt love it as much as this one!
This one caught me off guard. I love these types of stories and this is one of my favorites. I'm not a fN of spending money on aps but I'm glad i did
My first play through was for some reason really hard to get into, but now I have completed this game a dozen times. I accidentally spoiled the ending for myself, so knowing what was coming I still almost cried. Good job on that. This story felt like sky high with a dash of kickass. I can't wait to see what happens next. I romanced Umi in a save so she better make a return.
Common guys its a superhero Novel game and the main character (me) doesn't even have any super powers! Wht the hell. You made it even harder to acquire equipments and even fewer chances to use them... worst part is we need to do those stupid multiple choice questions(actual tests)! And Why did u put the main character in disadvantage since the beginning? Simply it's far from being fun!
This game was absolutely amazing. I play a lot of choice game it hit me with a really some what realistic feature in the game like the test. But i kinda think some of the choices you do are limited.
I truly love this game and have suggested it to many people. With that being said they need to hurry with the next part of the series because I am inching to play further.
Great story. Can't wait for the next part. Ive played like 13 times already and each time has been different. I love it. Hurry up and get part two done please.
Loved the story and there were a lot of great characters, *SPOILERS* in 4th issue I was surprised that you guys actually killed of a major character, but In a good way because many choice game don't kill of major character so I was shocked when I read it. Well done
I enjoy it a little! Not much is wrong with it. The nAMe thing is the only confusing thing I've found so far. Four stars!
Loved it. Plenty of replayability, though it gets repetitive at points, skipping through the generic scenes. Definitely one of the best game of this type that I've played, author did a terrific job.
Didn't expect this but it's got a good story I can't wait for the rest of the issues but 4$? For a choose your own adventure book with only images to the issue # title I'd like some more for that price
The aspect of having no powers at all kinda sucks as far as playing a super hero game but overall I can't complain about anything else
I wasn't so sure about it at first, but after playing through it I have really enjoyed it and went through at least 5 more times! I hope the next one is out soon!
I just love being underdog. Feels like green aroow, Batman and stealth the regular people doing cool stuff heroes do without powers. Just curious if only tress you can date?
There's a lot going on in this game. It's going to start and end in the same place each time, but the choices you make really do make for a new appealing story each time you replay it. And you will want to replay it. Often.
I hate games like this that make you play for free for a few chapters and then you have to buy the whole game. Doesn't even deserve 1 star
I absolutely love this interactive novel and can't wait until the next one comes out! The next sentence contains somewhat of a spoiler so if you have any intentions of downloading this, please don't read further! I only wish that I could've romanced Crook fully, I adore him.
