  Unruly Heroes is an upcoming platformer from Magic Design Studios and Perfect World Games that’s heading for iOS and Android on 18th March followings previous releases on PC and consoles. The story draws inspiration from the Chinese novel Journey to the West and looks to blend this culture with Western aesthetics.

  In Unruly Heroes, you’ll take control over one of four unlikely champions. However, you can switch between them at any time and each possesses its own combat style and abilities. You’ll then venture out to collect every piece of the Sacred Scroll, with plenty of puzzles to solve and powerful bosses to tussle with along the way.

  Different levels will also feature varying mechanics to keep the gameplay feeling fresh and interesting. For instance, one stage might see you utilising the ability to possess enemies to safely make your way to the end whilst another might see you flying throughout and having to adjust your height to avoid incoming obstacles.
