  • While I’m a moderate fan of mobile conversions that have a simple look but satisfyingly accessible play when the experience is phoned in I won’t hesitate to say so. Unfortunately, in the case of Random Heroes we have a title that looks reasonably decent, though obviously originally intended for mobile devices, but whose gameplay is thoroughly uninteresting and uninspired. Truly, the bar on Switch for platform shooters is pretty high as there are numerous titles at reasonable price points that will throw excitement and challenge at you from the get-go. Not only doesn’t Random Heroes even get within 100 miles of that ballpark, I’d wager I could go back to the NES days and find an abundance of genre titles from that era that are more thoughtfully designed and exciting. This sort of game is what gives budget mobile conversions a bad name, it’s unfortunately just a grindy snooze.
