Being a superhero, as Spider-Man and The Incredibles have taught us, is no easy ride. The enormous responsibility that comes with power is a tough burden to bear.
Chillingo's The Hero, out now on the App Store, picks up this theme and runs with it. Or rather, flies with it. You take control of John - a mysterious burnt out superhero - during more care-free times, whizzing about the city, smashing tanks and rescuing falling babies.
