"A stunning title, with character and excellent game mechanics." - [Gamesyle]
"It’s borderline nonsensical, in-your-face pixel-y bloodbath, complete with a cavalcade of ultraviolent British caricatures and a purple time travelling Bunny with political aspirations." - [Gameplanet]
The Not A Hero Digital Special Edition includes a digital artbook, full color digital comic, exclusive Making Of documentary, desktop backgrounds, Windows sounds, and the digital soundtrack.
Professional assassin turned amateur campaign manager Steve is charged with cleaning up the city by an anthropomorphic rabbit and mayoral candidate from the future named BunnyLord. Now Steve and his expanding roster of dubious heroes must wield their unique skills to shoot, slide, dive, and take cover behind a political platform built on ethics, accountability, and an inordinate amount of gunfire. Eliminate the criminal underworld of the city’s three major districts and persuade undecided voters to your cause, tackling the issues that matter by putting a gun in the mouth of those issues.
Through the power of ISO-Slant™ technology and a wasted youth, London-based developer Roll7 (OlliOlli) delivers the greatest 2¼D cover-based indie shooter of all-time, ever.
Next Level Shootouts – Use reasonable force unreasonably in a dynamic mix of run-and-gun gameplay and cover-based shootouts. The intuitive quick-snap cover system lets you slide, roll, and dive into cover, dodging enemy fire before fighting back with tackles, executions, and 100s of bullets.
Roster of Not Heroes - Select between 9 different heroes, each with their own distinct gameplay style and crime murdering abilities. Blast the city’s scum through doors with Cletus’ a shotgun, slice them in half with Kimmy’s katana dash, or simply bash crime in it’s terrible face with Ronald’s hammer.
Dynamic Missions – Go ham on primary objectives and (sometimes random) secondary goals but be prepared for unexpected mid-level events that turn the tables on the anti-heroes in an instant. SWAT teams, gun-toting elderly, helicopter gunships, pandas, pugs and suicidal samurais stand between you and victory.

Not a Hero is a 2D action side scroller that has a group of assassins trying to help the election of a murderous candidate who says that the world will end if he does not win. You start off with one character but quickly unlock more as your approval rating goes up, approval rating increases by completing missions and bonus objectives. Each of the games characters has a different gun and different abilities such as fast and silent kills, ability to run and shoot, reload while running, faster speed, ability to shoot in two directions, crash through doors, etc. Side jobs on missions are three activities that can involve finding objects, killing all enemies, saving hostages, not getting hit, kill chains, etc. Your characters are able to move and slide, sliding puts you into cover in the background until you start firing, sliding into enemies knocks most of them over and allows you to execute them, close range shots give you critical hits, you can use your slide ability to lunge off of the side of buildings to crash through adjecent windows, you can also find an assortment of bombs and weapons powerups in your missions. The game can be fun and has a good balance between fast paced and methodical action but there are only 21 short levels (with a few secret ones for you to find), the game offers little replay value, and there does seem to be some odd hit detection issues at times. Briefings involve you getting a slideshow while being told about your mission while the after mission has you talking to you boss over milkshakes, every line of dialogue feels like it was written to be funny but its usually more miss than hit. The special edition of the game includes the making of video, soundtrack, a comic, and some wallpaper images but it isn't really worth it. The art is nothing great, neither is the music, and the making of is already available to watch on Youtube without buying the special edition, better to stick with the regular edition.
