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
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This impressed the unimpressable. May 24, 2013
By Kapr3

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!

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but has a linear plot January 18, 2013
By Mvargus
Verified Purchase
Part of me wants to love these games. There is something satisfying about playing one of these games where you get to see the results of your choices as you read the story.

The problem I have with the products from this publisher is that all too often the story ends up being extremely linear with only a few variations. Unlike the classic "choose your own adventure" books from my childhood, the choices in this story don't send you to a definite new ending, but are rated based on a scoring system. You have a potential score at the end, and your performance is based on that.

This means that the amount of "replayability" of these stories ends up rather limited because the ending is somewhat locked. You might be able to push it slightly, but these games are not a dynamic as the older version.

Still for hte price its a decnnt way to kill a half hour or so, so I cannot condemn it. However, its definitely only for those that truly love the games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once I started, I couldn't put it down! February 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
I would definitely recommend this for superhero fans everywhere (even those more infatuated with the dark side), the story was complex and the characters were sufficiently realistic (though somewhat psychotic). Definitely worth the price, and is most definitely one I will play more than once.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good premise, but the story seems to drag December 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
It seems like a fun story - you're a superhero and you have a lot of work to do - but the story seems to drag at times, and some of the situations seem like they exist for no reason other than they're simply there. Still, it's a good way to pass the time every once in a while when there's not much else to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sequel? August 26, 2012
By Rebekah
Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this game book and the world building was great. However, there were a few things that I wish the game had. Choices on abilities. Yea it was great to fly and control energy but it would have been better to have more selection on powers. More leeway on choices. There were times I wished my choices didn't peeve off others like Jury and Mayor Victon. Yea I get there was a point in having them hate you but I would have liked to have seen another side of the coin. Also there were alot of loose ends that needed resolution I hope that there will be a sequel.
