Codex Gamicus

H.E.R.O. is a game released for home computers, the Atari 2600 and ColecoVision.


The player guides H.E.R.O. through various types of caverns to rescue people trapped deep within. The laser is used to blast away bats and other creatures, and bombs are used to blow up walls that block H.E.R.O.'s path. Lava pits and hot rocks must be avoided, and caution should be taken in dark places as H.E.R.O. hovers deeper and deeper toward his goal.
