That Evilcorp sure is evil

Legends of Heropolis DX tasks you with rebuilding your town and battling the evil Evilcorp, out now on iOS and Android
  • Build your town of heroes from scratch
  • Upgrade heroes and battle the forces of evil
  • Fight kaijus with your mechs

Kairosoft has officially launched Legends of Heropolis DX, a charming pixel-art city-builder that tasks you with restoring your titular town to its former glory. The aptly named Evilcorp is wreaking havoc across the streets, so it's up to you to train your heroes and join forces with other brave warriors to repel the malevolent forces threatening your town's peace.

In Legends of Heropolis DX, you can look forward to quenching your thirst for justice across a quirky superhero sim where you'll construct your base, recruit valiant heroes, and eliminate the forces of darkness in your town. Of course, you'll also need to build roads and shops to make sure Heropolis thrives - plus, you can customise your avatar to battle evil with style.

It's not quite clear whether this revamped version is a remaster of the original or a sequel of sorts, but it does feature upgraded visuals and vibrant pops of colour that make both heroes and villains come alive. There are plenty of mechas and kaijus to tinker around with as well, it seems, adding an interesting twist to your average city-builder.
