With just 88 minutes to complete all 88 levels, you’ll need every one of the 88 heroes to stop the dastardly Dr. H8 destroying the Earth! Are you up to the challenge?

Meanwhile the ‘H8 Mode Activate’ pack offers up a further two playable characters and a collection of eight hardcore challenge levels to seriously test your platforming prowess.

Will You Be My Human?

Roses are red, violets are blue and I’ve amassed a body count, so I can save you.
I know you’ve been kidnapped… and they probably probed you a little bit.. but don’t worry! I’m hacking through mutants, so we can give Smile Tech the slip.
Sorry for the cheesy card that’s bound to make you sigh, but writing is kinda hard ..with all this blood in my eye.
Our adventure was once destined only for PC, but our love is so strong that Rising Star Games has let us wreak havoc on not one platform – (but three)
Maybe I’m still reeling from athe DNA splicing,but Jimmy Urine’s soundtrack makes all this killing quite enticing..
It may be sad that all this danger is looming, but I guess what I’m trying to ask is… will you be my human?


Rising Star Games wishes you a happy Valentine’s Day
