Hero City might confuse some of you, if you are expecting a game of super heroes or some kind of bad super villains fight you’re completely on the wrong path or at least part of it.
Hero City is another city building game for Facebook on the genre of CityVille and others like it. The difference is that in Hero City the citizens are… well superheroes, and thats about it.
This game basically lets you build your own town, build houses, businesses and decors, eventually citizens, in this case heroes, will move in to live in your city, as you progress more heroes will arrive and so on.
The “heroes part” comes in the form of missions you heroes perform around the world, as there is always crimes and villains to fight they have to rescue the world, this is done by dispatching your heroes to fight in some location around the world, in the begin is only a small area, but as you advance in the game, new areas will unlock for your heroes to visit. In some cases it is necessary to send them multiple time to the same location to finish their job.
The graphics are quite standard, and the game missed a great opportunity to stand out with the original idea, as one would expect of a game of Super Heroes, finally is just another city building kinda graphics game.
