RIP 3 The Last Hero

A very simple and very fun top down shooter. Pick a character and go blasting. Use the keyboard to move and the mouse to aim.

Release Date

2007.

Pros

Very easy to learn to play.

Plenty of different weapons to blast around with. According to the main website there are 25 different weapons. And each weapon has two fire modes.

You get to drive vehicles including tanks and helicopters and use turrets.

As you shoot enemies you gain experience and levels. With each level you can level up your character with a special power

There are six characters to choose from and each has their own powers.

When you complete the game, you get to pick one secret weapon and start all over again with your souped up character. Unfortunately, your secret weapon does get replaced, if you happen to pick up a weapon that takes its weapon slot.

Cons

The game is repetitive. But like a good top down shooter, it really doesn’t matter.

Other Points

There is cooperation mode where two players can play on one PC. But I have not tried this out.

There is a LAN option. I have not tried this out either.

There is flower mode where instead of blood splats you see flowers. I’m guessing this is for parents that want to allow their kids to play the game but do not want them to see the blood.

Biases

I do enjoy simple and fun top down shooters every now and again.

I have completed all 100 levels of the game.

RIP 3 The Last Hero is DRM free.
