(Mac users: This does not work on macOS Catalina (ver 10.15) or later.)

HeroRun is a game where you play a hero that can't fight back, and must retreat from monsters! You're a Hero, and you can only Run! HeroRun!

Pick up four keys to unlock the exit! Get to the next floor and deal with weirder layouts and traps! Over 40 different floors, each with multiple layouts! Never play the same exact run twice (probably)! Endless lives to retry each floor with, and save points at every 5 floors!

Arrow keys to move, Space bar to start level and select things sometimes. Can change controls at the title screen under Options.

It's a simple arcade-style game, so please give it a try!

The source files are meant for those using RPG Maker so that they could learn to make similar games. Most of the assets you're referring to are under the rights of the people that made RPG Maker VX Ace, so if you want to use those assets, talk to them.

Thanks for your answer. I understand your answer.


This game reminds me of this math poem: http://digitaleditions.walsworthprintgroup.com/article/Run%2C+Hero%2C+Run%21/238...
