When last we heard from Infinite Ammo and their upcoming iPhone game Heroes and Villains, all we had to go on was their claim that the game would be “Lemmings meets [Blizzard platformer] The Lost Vikings meets Awesome.”
What did that mean? Now we’ve got a clear answer: the team has uploaded an extensive early look at the alpha version and it’s looking quite smart. The long and short of it, your team of Heroes (and/or Villains) are on a mission to — as you’d expect — keep the freely wandering citizens of the city (un)safe (Lemmings), and do so by swapping out characters for their individual powers (The Lost Vikings) like portal shooting, flight, seductive attraction, and super-stretchiness (awesome).
The video is necessarily rough, and Infinite Ammo make no bones about showing it off at this “pants down” stage, but have also uploaded newer screenshots showing the metropolis in more textured form, and adding to the excitement for what looks like, with all due continued spit polish, a fantastic addition to the iPhone library.
