The team behind Wizard World Inc. wanted to create a series of games based on their new comic book character that would appeal to their unconventional convention audience though the humor of superhero satire and (of course) exciting game play.
We created In Fly Like a Hero! as a tongue-in-cheek 2D game in which players control a superhero whose powers of flight are lacking (to say the least). But what he lacks in super powers, he makes up for in perseverance as players launch him repeatedly and try to get him to bounce, glide, and maybe even fly his way into the public's adoration. After all, being a superhero takes more than a cool spandex suit and a trusty sidekick. It takes guts. It takes spirit. Or, for today's comic-loving public, it might just take a smart phone.
