Unruly Heroes is a 2D kung-fu-them-all /adventure game inspired by the famous chinese novel «Journey to the West».

Assuming the role of one of four unlikely heroes, players will test their mettle against intense environmental obstacles, unexpected challenges and go toe-to-toe against a memorable rogues’ gallery of foes. Beyond this fantasy adventure, players can fight against their friends in local or online PVP modes.

Set against lushly illustrated environments and hand-drawn art style, the game updates that classic tale into an epic adventure that is more colorful, humorous and lighthearted than the original, while still highlighting the core essence of what it takes to be a hero.

Only four totally opposed and implausible heroes Sanzang the wise, Wukong the fearless monkey, Kihong the greedy pig and Sandmonk the sensitive brute) can turn back that dark tide.
