June 14, 2011— RedLynx ( redlynx.com) said today that players of 1000 Heroz have logged more than 1,000,000 restarts since the game’s launch a week ago. Each restart represents a separate attempt to play through a game level.
"Over 1 million restarts in such a short time -- for a new kind of game like this -- is remarkable," said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx.
“The promise of 1000 Heroz is to deliver something new and fresh every day– for a thousand days,” he said.“It looks like 1000 Heroz is delivering on that promise in a remarkable way.”
1000 Heroz is currently #1 of all applications in its home country of Finland, having reached that place within twelve hours of launch, where it has remained since launch. The game is gaining quickly in other countries, as well.
"Players are mainly playing the Daily Level, which can be played through in less than 30 seconds,” said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx.“But they are playing it over and over again, every day. The physics mean each play through is different, and they are driven to improve their time scores. The replay value of each Daily Level is huge.
“And one has to remember, that every past level is also playable. We are committed to keeping the game fresh for 1000 days– not bad for a dollar!”
The premise of 1000 Heroz is as simple as it is unique. Each day, you guide a new hero through a brand new level, running and jumping to get the fastest time possible. You can restart as many times as you like to get best time possible. All told, there are 1000 heroes to guide, 1000 levels to explore and 1000 relics to gather.
