"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]
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.

At first, it seemed boring to me, but over time, the game was becoming more and more dynamic, interesting and difficult. It has this specific British and black type of humor not to mention a crazy plot. Well, and of course it's worth to mention a good pixelart presentation. The game offers pure arcade action, I really like it.
Not a Hero is a 2D action sidescroller 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 adjacent 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 (and you do get an after mission scene where your beaten up character and boss are drinking at a cafe), every line of dialogue feels like it was written to be funny but its usually more miss than hit.
Something this game is not, is a bad one. It is a hidden gem of the site and I strongly suggest any gamer of any kind pick this game up and give it a try. They would not regret it. Music is lively and fun, old fashioned, pixelated, and somewhat in the vein of Miami Hotline. Grow your gang and save the day. Pick it up and discover the fun.
you play as a "campaign manager" for a fellow called bunnylord run slide and shoot your way through levels as you complete objectives and attempt to help bunnylord get elected (or something bad will happen) the art is nice. as you progress bunnylord gets more popular you unlock more unique members of the bunnylord fun-club humorisly written and levels are worth replaying to attempt for the global megalord rank (that means hitting all sub objectives in one run). worth grabbing at full price and doubly so if on sale.
Not a Hero is an old fashioned pixelated cover shooter that is one part Miami Hotline, two parts Blackthorne, all amazing Not a Hero is fairly low on the story side, but still is there and good for what it is, but the gameplay is a notch above the rest. You have to master running and gunning as well as knowing when to enter cover and when to reload. It is easy to die if you aren’t careful, knowing when to be careful and when to be aggressive will almost always help you win. Almost There are various characters, each with their own specific personalities, weapons, and playstyles. There are also various challenges for you to beat during each level, many of which require you to be aggressive and almost speedrun the level. Some challenges might seem like they are better suited for some characters than others, but with a little (or a lot of) practice you should master them. Not a Hero is not a game you should miss. It is not a game that you will regret buying, and most importantly, it is not boring.
