There are gun and weapon shops on the map where you can go and purchase ammo and guns for all your missions. Besides this, you will get a few guns while you are on a mission for free which is also a part of your mission. You will also get involved in gang wars where you will have to kill all the evil gang members to be the hero of the town. The mobs are usually identified with red dots on the map. Similarly, the police cars are highlighted with blue and red blinking dots while they are on a lookout for you.
Rope Hero App features
As soon as you open the game on your smartphone, you will first be run through a tutorial on how to play the game. It is recommended that you take up the tutorial so that you are familiar with all the controls during your gameplay. The Russian developer has always mentioned his love for Spiderman and the GTA Vice City. It is apparent here that’s how he got his inspiration for this game. It is a mixture of both these games that has led to the evolution of Rope Hero. The graphical action of the game is built in 3D, making the plot more realistic. Not only are the graphics good, but there are quite a few new weapons which one might not have seen in other games.
The visual effects are mind-blowing and there is a lot of physics, which is rarely seen in games where there are superheroes involved. The superhero in the game can basically spawn a rope which looks like a spring and can travel long distances depending on the aim of the rope. This rope is used by the hero to move from one place to another, something that was inspired from Spiderman.
There are a variety of vehicles in the game. You might just want to roam about in the streets of the city in any vehicle you like, which is something that looks like has been inspired by the GTA Vice City. The developer is so impressed with GTA Vice City that all the fonts in the game have been incorporated from the GTA Vice City game which works to give you a similar feel. Not only are the fonts similar but also the maps, the health bar, the wanted star ratings are all like what you might come across in the GTA game. The weapons which in the game are quite famous in the gaming world. Some of them include the AK 47, Flame Guns, Rocket Launchers, Shot Guns, Pistons, and so on. The main highlight here is that the hero uses the rope just like the Spiderman uses his webs to move across the city.
In the settings of the game, you will be able to set the traffic density and the graphics quality of the game according to your choice. It is suggested that this setting is set according to the phone which you play on. A few devices can heat up while playing this game and if that happens, you can reduce the graphics quality of the game which should resolve the issue of overheating. Another cool feature of the game is that the hero can kick with high power. After all, you are the hero who is going to save the city from evil. When you move closer to an object, a kick option will show up and when the players touch that, you will be able to see how powerful the kick is. Not only will you be able to kick persons and enemies, but also cars, bikes – almost anything in the game is kickable. After the initial tutorial is completed, you will be able to go to different areas on the map and complete missions based on where you go. The missions are based on a storyline and as you progress, you will be able to gain more abilities in the game which will enable you to complete your missions. These missions get more challenging as the game progresses.
Rope Hero gameplay
When you launch the game, you will be greeted with a tutorial which will help you in familiarizing with the controls in the game. It is highly recommended that you complete the tutorial so that you will not have to refer to controls while you are playing the game. You can start at a random location and from there on, you will be able to roam freely on the streets. You might want to try your action on a few pedestrians – the best place to find them is on the beach. Do watch out as you are the hero and you are not supposed to cause harm to the pedestrians – by doing this your “Wanted” star levels will increase, and the police will start chasing you. By attacking the policemen, your “Wanted” star rating would increase at a faster rate.
When you reach the highest “Wanted” star level, you would have a fleet of vehicles chasing you and using different types of weapons to pin you down. The easiest way to escape from the police is to take a car and get away. This way you are decreasing your “Wanted” star rating and will eventually reach zero. Another way to instantly bail out on policemen is to use the rope as your tool but make sure you have enough stamina to use the ropes. There is a stamina bar that gets used up when you run, use the rope, or climb the buildings. When your “Wanted” stars are high, you will be able to get to the top of high buildings using your rope, where the policemen will find it difficult to find you.
There are markings on the map which give you different missions. They are usually easy to find on the map and once you reach the marking, there would be a colored mark where you should take your position. Once you stand on the colored marking, you will find that there is a storyline behind each mission. You can either choose to skip the story or read the stories, which are basically dialogues between characters. It is advisable that you do not skip the storyline so that you understand what the mission is going to be.
Once the mission has been assigned to you, an arrow mark will appear on top of your character. You simply have to follow that arrow mark. With the help of these arrow marks, you can figure out where you have to go next. You can either take the road or use your rope to move around the map. Since the rope uses more stamina, it is better that you take the roads initially and use the rope when you really need it. While completing the missions, you will come across gangsters who will try to kill you. Your ropes will come in handy during this time as you try to move away from them. As you progress with the mission, you will get options to increase the various factors, such as the rate at which your stamina, attack speed, damage, the scattered bullets, the max speed that you can drive the car at, the acceleration and so on. It can be increased using the SP points earned after completing the missions.
In the settings tab of the game, you will be able to set the sound and the music of the game. In the same setting page, you will be able to set how the graphics in the game should show up. Apart from this, you will be able to set the viewing distance of the hero and the traffic density in the city while you are playing the game. There are many types of car in the game. You can note this by stepping into the car and noticing the name of that car that appears on the top of the screen. You might want to note the car which you like so that you can steal the right car for the right type of missions.
Once you get into the car, you will be able to tune into different radio stations or if you prefer to keep the radio switched off, you will be able to do that as well. Keep in mind that bad driving can affect the car. If the car is hit at different points, the car’s damage will increase. You might notice that every time you damage the car, a type of smoke sputters out. White smoke would mean that the car has been damaged a bit but is still drivable. If black colored smoke starts coming out from the vehicle, then it means that it is better to leave that car and get another one.
If the car gets further damaged, it can easily catch fire and explode. If you are in the blasting radius of the car, then you will also lose health when the car explodes. Bullets can also damage a car, so keep that in mind when you are around gangsters who will fire at the car.
The developer has gone one step ahead and combined 2 different games into one, which is a good idea. The controls of the game are quite straightforward, and you will not find it difficult to adjust to it once you have started playing the game. There is a lot of physics involved in the application which you rarely see in games.
What could be improved?
The graphics of the game are a bit outdated. They can be improved, especially considering the tough competition today where there are a lot of games out there which provide better graphics. The narration is very simple and can also be updated with better graphics.
Overall, the game is good, and one can spend hours and hours simply roaming around the map. It has over 10 million downloads and is rated 4.4 stars on an average of over 500 thousand ratings in the Play Store. With these stats, you can definitely give this game a try!
