Heroes of Loot combines the action of twin-stick shooters with the dungeon crawling of rogue-likes. You’ll find yourself in the middle of hordes of ghosts, skulls, cyclops, critters and much more.. survive using quick reflexes, level up to improve your weapon, and if you have time complete some quests for extra loot and upgrades. How deep into the dungeon can you go?

As well as bringing the game to PS Vita, Abstraction Games also published Heroes of Loot on PS Vita. When adapting twin-stick shooters, good controls are vital. For Heroes of Loot, this meant creating a control scheme which felt true to the original, but simultaneously worked well on the device. Doing an adaptation means putting a lot of effort into making the controls excellent rather than just functional. Due to the streamlined gameplay in Heroes of Loot it wasn’t necessary to remap controls, so most of our time working on the controls was spent perfecting the stick offset curvature.
