DESCRIPTION
 
[Coin-Op] Arcade Video Game

Hero © 1991 W Industries.


Hero is a virtual reality puzzle. Combat-free and full of surprises, Hero requires you to explore and to think on your feet. Hero has a lot of perspective dynamics which require you to turn your head and attention in the virtual landscape and to use your hand to pick up and use objects. Hero places you in the center of four doorways. Behind each door is a unique scene to explore. In each scene there is a letter which you must collect to win : the letters are H, E, R, and O. Collecting all four in the four minutes allotted make you a Hero!
