screenshot5Traplight games recently posted a trailer for their upcoming side scrolling game called Superhero.

In short the game is all about fast life as a world saving SuperHero looking for fame. Hectic side-scrolling action, protecting cities by smashing and bashing your way thru a lot of different enemies and gaining fame by highfiving fans and using your special powers! Game features survival gamemode, 15 level campaign, cool sountrack and detailed graphics with randomized cities varying from smaller towns to metropolis.

The developer's website shows some of the detailed backstory to the game. Meanwhile the trailer video also carries a lot of character and shows some of the fast-paced action.

The game incorporates both tilt or touch controls and special powers for the superhero character include Freeze, Bomb, Lightning and a Boost ability. The best part? You can load up on these abilities by high-fiving fans as well as collecting powerups.

The game is still in development and should arrive later this year.

    Could this be a bigger rip off of the Incredibles? From the story line to the artwork.

      who cares? It looks like a really well-done rip-off.

      At least it's not another tower defense.

    A superhero that smokes...that's ironic...his voice sounded like a speak n spell..I wonder if it was due to throat cancer?

    • Greg K

      I wonder if they used that voice because the game isn't finished yet, and they haven't officially hired a voice actor yet?... just a thought

    • Lucky

      Or the fact that it clearly says that his voice is being altered to protect his identity. Reading FTW.

    I read it as "So you want to be a Sombrero?" first up, good ol' half-awake browsing. Even so it sounded appealing. The trailer is interesting; gameplay looks a little haphazard, and I'm sure a lot will come down to the controls.

    • Ender

      Lol. "So you want to be a Sombrero?" would top the App Store's charts!

    Game looks good but the robotic voiceover killed it for me. I really have bad nightmares of Bonzai Buddy :(

    • Lucky

      It is purposely altered, it says so right on the video, you know, like when they protect someone's identity.

    Ha! Awesome. Great sense of humor.

    I think it's a bit harsh to call it a ripoff of Incredibles. There were other superhero spoofs before Incredibles (The Tick, Mystery Men, etc...) And yeah, the art style looks similar; but then, the art style to the Incredibles borrowed a bit from stuff like Fleischer's Superman cartoons. So go figure.

    Anyway, congrats to the dev on, at the very least, a hilarious trailer.

    What some people would call a "rip off" i would call "inspired by", human thought and ideas are generated from a collage of sensory input we see, hear, taste and smell then store away in our little human brains over our lives, like Salvador Dali said "Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing". Nothing is totally original!
    There is no point in being to critical as the game is still in production.
    I think the game looks fantastic and will stand apart from many apps on the app store.

    Incredibles is one of my favorite movies and Brad Bird (the director) is amazingly talented, however... this game borrows FAR less than the incredibles did from comics such as Fantastic Four and Watchmen. I'm not even a comic fanboy and I know this. :)

    To some degree this is homage, to some degree it is probably frustration with how these parts of super hero canon haven't made their way to the big screen. I'm GLAD that Brad Bird made the Incredibles because it is easily among the most satisfying and complete super hero movies ever made.

    In other words, I see no reason to discount the fun this game may offer just because the super hero has a passing resemblance to another and the story line involves someone exploring their past as a super hero in an interview.

    Just sayin'.
