Underhero is a 2D side-scroller RPG adventure game with turn-based combat… without the turns! Precisely timed actions are your most powerful weapons. It tells an intriguing and mysterious story, full of silly characters brimming with personality, quirky dialogue, and lots of weird humor.
Inspired by Paper Mario and other Nintendo RPGs. It tells the story of a world where the chosen hero has failed and an underling of the main villain takes his place as the new “hero”.
