Information about this Game

PC-Version of the classic game H.E.R.O. (TM), which is original
designed by John van Ryzin and published by Activision in 1984.
This remake is based on the Atari-XL version and was completly new programmed in 2011.
There is no Atari-XL emulator behind!
My goal was to create a nearly 100% remake of this game and i hope you like it.

Unfortunately, I have no permission from Activision to use their original Rainbow-Logo from 1984.
Therefore, this was exchanged to the RetroVision-Logo.
My thanks go to the designer of this: kevb0ard

This game is freeware!
