The history of Heroine Anthem Zero on iOS is a pretty interesting one. This 2D fantasy adventure game originally launched its episode 1 – subtitled “Sacrifice” – on Steam a while back before making its way to the PS4. However, several months ago it was actually released on iOS by accident and at the time it received quite a few positive feedback. This accidental version was removed shortly afterward, disappointing many people who didn’t have the chance to try it out.

Good news: That disappointment has come to an end, as developer Winking Skywalker Entertainment has just officially released the game on the App Store ass a premium purchase. Check out the trailer for the game below:

In its current state, Heroine Anthem Zero features the first episode of what the developer describes as “an epic adventure”. When it comes to gameplay, this is a side-scrolling title with a few options for the control and, as you can see from the trailer, it looks pretty nice in motion. The art style and soundtrack are solid as well. The game only has Japanese voice acting, though, but it does come with subtitles in some other languages.

In term of difficulty, there are two options. The RELAX mode, as its name suggests, offers an easier combat experience and is for those who just want to explore the story. Hardcore gamers who want a challenge, on the other hand, will probably prefer the STANDARD mode.

If Heroine Anthem Zero captures interest, you can go to the App Store right now to get it for $2.99 (Rs 210). This is a pretty decent deal considering that the PC and PS4 versions cost $9.99 (Rs 700) and $12.99 (Rs 900) respectively. The App Store description doesn’t mention anything about future episodes however, which is a bit concerning. In any case, you can visit the game’s official website for more information.
