Sega and Picomy's Heroki [$4.99] has just undergone a big update that promises to improve the experience. They've made some tweaks to the controls, though it uses the same 3 control methods, though the default when you first launch the game is now the joystick, interestingly enough. It might take some time to figure out just how improved these controls are, and if you reinstall the game, it's now smaller, but requires you to go back through the tutorial before you can get to where you load up your iCloud save. Still, control tweaks could go a long way toward making players happier with the experience if they do dive back in, or are playing for the first time.

As far as new features go, you can now play Heroki on Apple TV, and there's cross-platform iCloud support so you can carry your save from iOS to tvOS. MFi controller support is also here, so you can play with that on your TV or iOS device, in case the touch controls still aren't good enough for you. The Heroki update is available now.

    Big win here, bought this awhile ago but wished it had MFI support. Now it does plus I can play it through Apple TV! Win/Win

    I fear it may be a little too late for this one :/

      Well not if you own it already :0)

        No I mean for this game at all, it's time has kind of passed and it's mediocre reputation has been kind of cemented. I don't think many players will be coming back for it

        It got a mediocre reputation because of that nunce Carter! It is actually a fantastic game far better than the majority of iOS games! On AppleTv and a controller it really would be a "console quality" game.

        It's got a 4 out of 5 average rating on the App Store, and Apple Editors Choice, so I'm not sure what bad reputation you're referring to. Remember, TA commenters are just a small percentage of iOS gamers.

    That's good. Update is much appreciated.

    Nice to see more games coming to AppleTV!

    Amazing!! I've been holding off playing this because of lack of MFi support.. and now I can play on my ATV too! 😀

  • ZeeMonkeyMan

    Heroki on an Apple TV with a controller would be amazing that's all I can say!
