From the review, "Don’t get too attached to your Vertical Drop Heroes HD character – he’s going to die. And the one after him will die too, and maybe the guy after him as well. The fact is the “true hero” of this adventure is the one climbing over those that have fallen before him to claim victory. Everyone before the “chosen one” of this story has been monster fodder to build your new hero’s stats and make him the one of the prophecy. Kinda morbid, right? Originally a web-based flash game dubbed “Vertical Drop Heroes”, the creator decided to upgrade everything, even commissioning a new soundtrack, and put a reasonable $5 price tag on it."
