Last Class Heroes – 2D Action RPG Eyecandy!
The Kontrabidas have come together to bring you a new 2D action adventure role playing game that has amazing artistic characters and beautiful environments. A unique feature of this game is the ability for the player to play from two different perspectives. The gamer can be either the headstrong but warm-hearted scholarly school girl Maya, or you could choose the new high school kid on the block who seems to be more than he appears to be. These two unique characters have stories and roles to play of their own, will you see both sides of the story?
They go to the Vermilion Academy where superiority is a right of passage through duels. The best fighters, own the most power. However, they don’t have just any type of duel, they instead fight with their Marionette.
A process called Soul Binding allows a portion of one’s very being to be paired with a lifeless Marionette. With it, the individual’s personality and intentions as well: Good or Evil. Engage in fast paced duels with your Marionette, unlock dozens of skills and weapons, collect and combine powerful Promethean Runes, make your way from the last class, come out on top and prove yourself a hero.

Last Class Heroes was released once this year to the Apple App Store already but as version 1.0. Originally, the game was a result of a solo developer, Leonardo Molar. Within days, the game was a hit and made it to the new and noteworthy category of Apples gaming section. People just loved the simplistic but in-depth gameplay that Last Class Heroes had to offer. Leo wanted the game to be more artistically advance with the addition of more dynamics to improve overall aesthetics so he pulled the game from the market with promises to re-release the game once it had been improved. Since then, Leo has begun working with a full development team of creative people who can bring this game to a whole new level with 2.0. Here is a link to the IGN page that has some screenshots from the 1.0 version: Link
In terms of application gaming on small mobile devices, you don’t always realize how important the graphics can be. For a majority of the populous, the graphics determine if you will give the app a chance or just move onto to the next installation of Angry Birds. This game has brought details to every aspect of the game, allowing a beautiful environment for you to explore in! The characters have very unique attire and the backgrounds are full of color, this is definitely a game worth calling eye candy! Kontrabidas team consists of 4 different artists who bring this RPG alive with their creative talents.
- Elegy’s lovable manga style for the sprites: http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=1299756

- And Ryan’s eye-catching palettes: http://tsubibo.deviantart.com/gallery/
Each member provides a new element to this amazing project, every element is as important as that last. (Now only if they had a Fifth element…)
What system is this for?
We’re hoping to finish everything by the end of March and make the game available for iPhone, iPad and the Mac by April. A Windows version should follow shortly and an Android version last. (requires the most attention because of fragmentation) Our code base works for all platforms but needs to be optimized for each device so it doesn’t feel like a cheap port.
Always a good notion when you find out that your entertainment provider, in fact, does not want you to be left with a cheap port version of what could be a great game. Kontrabidas seems to be full of hard workers who are willing to make the dedication to ensure your 100% enjoyment of their product. I give that quality a thumbs up!
