Product Description

Heroes Rise: the Prodigy is an interactive novel where you control the main character. In each chapter, your choices determine how the story proceeds.

In Heroes Rise, Powered heroes have become the ultimate celebrities, and you dream of joining the A-List. To get there, you'll first have to take down evil Powered gangs, compete with deadly rivals, choose a worthy sidekick, team up with famous champions, and prove to all of Millennia City that you're a true hero.

Will you crusade for justice, or gun for money? Will you work as a team with the world-famous Millennial Group, or will you steal their spotlight? Build your character, choose their paths and enjoy the outcomes.

If you like gamebooks, you'll love Heroes Rise. Its unique approach to interactive fiction allows larger, deeper, and richer stories than traditional gamebooks. There are many different endings, good luck finding them all!

Note: Contains material that may not be appropriate for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite good. Expansive. Great world building. July 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
Here, you get to play a hero... who you get quite a bit of input on. Name, sex, sexuality, fears, joys, desires, problems. Each time a choice is made, the background program makes a bit of and adjustment, and the story carries on, but things might turn out differently with different choices.

The story -- at least the versions I played through -- are quite excellent. Good villains abound, and the world that they've set up is excellently detailed.

I got beaten up quite a lot in the first six acts. I'm not sure if that was my choices, so I'll want to play through it again to see if I can do any better.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even Better Than I Expected June 19, 2013
By hmz

Heroes Rise is a traditional super hero story without being too cliche, and it's cute without being hokey. There is also a lot of replay value. As of writing this review, I'm on my fourth character and still experiencing things that didn't happen with any of the last three.

Unlike many RPGs, this game doesn't allow you to create a "perfect" character. Your hero WILL make big mistakes, and will NOT always be the best or get the last word, which makes everything so much more interesting. The NPCs are three-dimensional characters, and I was frequently surprised by which ones I ended up loving and not loving.

Heroes Rise is both one of my favorite text-based RPGs, and one of my favorite novels. If I have any complaint to make, it's my impatience for the sequel. Can't wait to see what happens next.

When I purchased this item, I too expected a quick predictable journey that probrably isn't worth my three dollars. I have never been so wrong. This is a very through and thrilling tale that will leave you satisfied. As a powered of MC, will you rise, or will you plunder? Only you can decide!

Probably the best Interactive Fiction I have read in a while. I'm not a crazy fan about the hero genre, but I still couldn't tear myself away from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Godd fun August 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
This was a quite entertaining choose-your-own-adventure style story.

A few glitches came up such as:

After choosing my role model, having the game insist afterward that someone else was my hero. As well as the poster on my characters wall changing at random.

The power enhancement gear you can receive at various times in the game sometimes failed to lower the cost of using the powers it was for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superhero Soap Opera July 29, 2012
I'll start with a confession. This is my first Kindle gamebook, so I can't say how the experience compares with others of its kind. However, on its own merits, this is a fantastic gamebook. There is a vast amount of choice available to you throughout the story, and while the game system is not overly complex, it works well to represent the choies you make. The story is compelling and hard to put down. There is a large cast of characters who react beliveably to your choices. And the post-Powered 22nd Century is quite an intriguing place, one I hope we can return to someday. My only complaint is the occasional forced choice - usually due to your stats and past choices, but sometimes solely by the plot. Still, a tremendous effort, and one I am glad to own!
