Step by Step Hero Review
Step by Step Hero is a walking simulator game, both developed and published by Pixelstop. Find yourself in the randomized universe of Omrand, where every step you take contributes to your success! The game consists of five, stand out biomes where you can play independently and meet fun NPCs along the way. Just bear in mind that your steps decrease as you go, so you’ll need to grab stepping flowers and other bonus items to fuel your journey! Gather coins, accept side quests and take on the ultimate battle to defeat the Heart of Corruption.
- Nostalgic design
- Innovative mechanics
- Shuffled choreography
This simple and straightforward game has a simple premise. Gather steps, keep walking and overcome your foes along the way. It’s hard to ignore a sense of nostalgia when playing, with the game giving off distinct 90s Gameboy visuals and soundtrack. Expect the music to change as you transfer from one area to another. Of course, Step by Step goes above and beyond aesthetic alone. The gameplay is engaging with plenty of innovative mechanics. While the game isn’t excessively challenging, implementing steps as a limited resource is a genius move that takes some practice to get a hang of and work to your advantage. You will also begin to notice that you can master the game’s shuffled choreography when switching between realms through experience, ongoing gameplay and advice from NPC scholars. Combat is interesting and based on the premise of having sufficient HP to win the fight, rather than chance.
