Sports Hero from Cherry Pick Games lets you live those sporting dreams on mobile without breaking out into a sweat. Like many other titles, it’s got the retro graphics look that’s common with these games, but the gameplay is unique from other sports titles.
This is an old fashioned athletics game, as you’ll be tapping on the screen to victory, or you’ll be swiping back and forth for the swimming part. If you’re not into tapping, then you can swipe the buttons instead so you’ll be able to play the way you like.
Sports Hero also has a two player mode and you can choose from a wide range of athletes that vary in appearance and nationalities. It may take some time to get accustomed to the controls if you’ve never played anything like Sports Hero before, but it’s a lot of fun.
Sports Hero has six events in total, and you’ll need to be at your best to unlock these. But if you’re used to mashing virtual buttons, then you know how Sports Hero works. It can be a little exasperating but at the same time, it’s very satisfying when you get things done.
With Sports Hero you’ll be lifting weights, sprinting and swimming. How well you do depends on your capabilities, but you’ll get the hang of it. If you’re into retro games then this will be right up your alley.
