Hero Core - Flip Hero is a superman who can withstand the eternal recurring loops

Hero Core is a shooter Metroidvania, created by the developer of Iji, Daniel Remar. Its main plot revolves around Flip Hero, the protag of the prequel game - which is named simply "Hero" - and his final battle against his former master, Cruiser Tetron. It uses minimalist visuals, similar to old computers, and its gameplay is close to Section Z without the forced scrolling, but retaining the non-linearity of the NES release, this time in a more Metroid-esque structure.

The royal who asked for this game was Sebby

the thread subtitle was stolen from the ahura mazda page on housamo wiki (technically the localized version of his bio in the gacha) and i have no regrets

you see flip and tetron have been at war like a billion times and it never ends so my brain instantly went to "oh like a time loop"

So yeah, speaking of Sebby, I'd compare this game to Soldexus in that it is extremely graphically and musically impressive for one person, and I had fun with it and it was worth playing, and it's fine enough to any%, but 100% gets ludicrous.
This game has a serious case of A.I. Roulette. Due to the gravity-free nature of the game, enemies usually randomly choose which direction to go into. However, this can really dick you over in some of the boss fights in Annihilation Mode and Hard Mode (oddly enough, despite being listed before Annihilation, I found Hard Mode to be harder than it and couldn't beat it, while I could beat Annihilation.) You have the super-cool Blade to deflect bullets, but that doesn't help much when bosses decide to corner you and/or shoot bullets that are too big to be deflected. Heck, there's even one boss that tries to escape you and you have to chase it down in a time limit - RNG strikes again!
So TL;DR I would suggest raocow to play the bonus mode unlocked after beating the game but not Hard Mode.

I'd also like to complain that, accessibility-wise, it seems to be more efficient to spam bullets on manual mode than auto-fire mode. I think there IS a shot limit, but it would have been nice to auto-detect when one of your shots disappears and to immediately fire another one.

someone please tell raocow how to unlock ReallyJoel's Dad Mode once he's done with the game

If anyone wants to know how to deal with the lasers

you just power through them with the half damage suit and lots of health. Not sure how much health you actually need

The coolest part of hero core is the music for me.

Also if you're real tenacious you can use eliminator to open doors.

Raocows don't read

defeating the hardest barrier on level 0 in hard is the most burtal non boss encounter
