Loot Hero DX is one of those games where you don’t have to do any thinking at all to accomplish your goal. The game is so simple you could even play it while talking on the phone, scrolling through Twitter, or maybe even making dinner if possible. With that being said I found my time to be somewhat enjoyable but not very long-lasting.
The story is simple, a dragon is terrorizing the land and has brought along an army of different types of baddies, and it’s up to you the hero to take them all down. You travel across about 10 different worlds until eventually meeting the dragon.
Gameplay-wise you move left and right and run into enemies to defeat them. As you do so they drop coins and diamonds that you can use to upgrade your weapon, defense, speed, and critical damage. For every enemy that you kill you gain experience to level up which is important due to the fact that if you go into a new area under-leveled you’ll find yourself bouncing off enemies instead of gliding right through them. I only found myself dying about four or five times and to counter this I farmed a level for gold and XP for about five minutes to gain more upgrades and power. In all, it took me about between 20-30 minutes to finish the game and to unlock the “new game +” mode. Here you unlock miners who earn gold for you while you are offline which proves to be a useful feature. After playing for an hour I felt like there was nothing more for me to do. That’s how simple the title is.
For what it’s worth Loot Hero DX is a go-to title for achievement hunters as you can easily 100% the game within an hour or two. Other than that I don’t see a reason to come back to play unless I was bored and had nothing else to play.
The graphics are all pixelated and full of color and variety and fit the setting of the land in itself. The soundtrack also sets the tone but isn’t anything memorable, but I think it’s due to the fact that you don’t stay in a level too long to really listen to it though.
For its asking price Loot Hero DX to me is a game you can play if you don’t have anything to play and you’re just bored. Even so, I got bored playing after an hour after finishing almost everything. It’s a mindless game to play but for someone like me, it can’t keep my attention for long.Become a Patron!
