Hello Hero All Stars receives update with new heroes, gear, bosses and more

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 16th, 2019
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The first Hello Hero game hit global platforms in 2013 and proved a huge success, with developer Fincon adding two more entries to this popular series of casual RPG games since. Released in June this year, Hello Hero All Stars brings many of the same beloved heroes back into the interplanetary fold. It’s an idle game that allows you take a back seat whilst your hand-picked squad battles across lands of monsters and bosses. Hero collecting is the aim of the game, with countless characters to unlock and upgrade as you progress.

Players have been sending their heroes trekking across the arid land of Armon, but an update this October will introduce another planet for you to rocket off to. Cucubita features 50,000 kilometres of new world to cover, each stretch brimming with weird and wonderful baddies to beat. There are familiar bosses from Armon, but some new bosses too, and their attack tactics change at set kilometre benchmarks so your heroes will have to be quick to adjust.

Epic turn-based RPG Brown Dust is set to turn 500 days old next week, and to celebrate, Neowiz has just unveiled its biggest and most exciting update yet, offering a host of new rewards, increased gacha rates, and a brand new feature that will change up the battlefield - Companion units.

To kick things off, the most significant change the update brings is the introduction of a new auxiliary unit called Companions. Battles will still be dictated by your use of Mercenaries, however you'll now have the option of pairing them up with their unique Companion counterpart which raises their Skill Level Cap from +10 to +15. What's more, every Companion will come with their own backstory which players can discover once they start to level up and change in appearance.

Shoot-em-ups tend to be a dime a dozen on the App Store, but every so often you come across one gem that aims to shake up the genre in a unique way. Developer Devjgame’s P.3 is the latest game seeking to do so this, working as a love letter to the 80s that combines air-tight arcade shooting with simple two-button controls that everyone can get to grips with.

Vertical shooters were all the rage during the days of yesteryear, and P.3 successfully replicates this perspective by mimicking the warped perspective and scan lines of old CRT screens. All this combines to make you feel like you’re playing a game lost from that old arcade you love, except it’s all playable in one hand and available for download from the App Store now.

There are 5 unique stages and bosses to shoot your way through in total, requiring you to dodge incoming enemies while blasting them with a generous number of cool weapons and power ups. Action is rapid and fast – perfect for short commutes as well as extended play sessions where you’re intent on beating your personal best.


You control your ship using only two buttons, with the left-side trigger dipping your ship one way while firing and the right-side trigger letting you move to the other. Holding both buttons down at the same time will see your ship unleash a super-move and slow down the screen, letting you get a jump on any dangerous enemies the minute you need it most.


Think you’ve got what it takes to master this retro space shooter? Give P.3 a go today by downloading it from the App Store.

Apart from these nods to the real world, everything takes place in a fantasy realm where there are monsters to be slayed, kingdoms to be conquered and alliances to be forged.
