To quote: This is a PS3 port of my open world super hero game titled Hero City. It was originally made for Wii and features the Nintendomax mascot.
There are some minor ways in which I've improved the game but there are some graphical and performance problems and the player is now constrained by the more simplified collision system that was previously only used for the enemies which unfortunately means that you can't travel on top of buildings or water.
- Left analog stick = Move
- Right analog stick = Turn camera
- X = Jump
- O = Fly
- Triangle and Square = Punch

Looks scary... dunno if I want to try it out
Is the VBANext working pretty good for everyone so far? Haven't heard much about it these fast few months...
This doesn't look half bad. Add in a gun to shoot with and some blood on bullet impact and you'd have a game I'd consider putting on my PS3.
It seems a nice homebrew game!
PS: Yeah, boss, HeymanHRU is an invaluable and irreplaceable man here!
I'm just posting the news of his website (thatotherdev.com), I'm sure any of you could do it, just bookmark his page and check it every now and then.

To quote from his blog: Hero City 2 is an open world superhero game. You run and jump around punching monsters and robots and collecting things and in the process of doing so you upgrade your abilities and unlock new tasks. It’s a massive step up from the first Hero City.
There are some differences between this and the original Wii version. Most of which I hope to correct in future updates. But overall it’s a pretty decent port. It runs at 60 frames per second in HD and looks exactly as it should.
I think it’s probably the best homebrew game on PS3 (though that’s obviously subjective and I’m definitely biased). It’s certainly the one I’m most proud of. So I hope you like it. Feedback is always appreciated.
- Left analog stick = controls the player
