In Twin Stick Heroes you take control of an oddball group of "heroes" duking it out for ultimate glory! Matches are fast and intense, every second can either mean your victory or demise, so you may have to be a little creative to come out on top.
All 19 heroes vastly change gameplay, each and every one is equipped with a unique weapon or ability focusing on a certain playstyle. Sniping players across map with a bow and arrow or going in close with a dart gun can be just as effective as laying traps or hiding in plain sight as Ghost.
The core fighting mechanics are easy enough for any new player, but has enough depth to draw veterans of the twin stick shooter genre, with a huge amount of heroes and items to choose from, as well as a large variety of gameplay altering variants, modes, maps, and settings to play around with. Many people may describe this game as a multiplayer bullet hell, but with the vast armament and tools given to the player the winner is most likely the one who is the most creative not necessarily the one with the fastest finger.
Three unique game modes are included, elimination, control point and cash grab. Elimination is the standard death match game, where kills are what matters not the last one standing. Control point forces players to keep zones under their control to rack up the most points. Cash grab is a twist on a similar game mode from smash bros, whoever collects the most cash wins!
Tread carefully on each of the 6 planets! The weather is not friendly to those who venture to set foot on its surface, and may include heat waves, item rain or a gigantic meteor shower! But for those who desire a more competitive game, weather can be turned off because Twin Stick Heroes revolves around player choice, making any match feel completely personalized to your taste. Don't like an item or gameplay mechanic? You can turn each one on or off, allowing for lots of replay value!
Controls are very important in any twin stick game and Twin Stick Heroes is no different, player movement is crisp and aiming is precise making each and every engagement feel in total control.

Twin Stick Heroes started as a tech demo in late December of 2017 after the devs played a game of Tanks for Wii Play. The original idea for the game was to have a mixture of Tanks and Enter the Gungeon, with the hero mechanics of Team Fortress and Overwatch.
This original tech demo featured only 8 playable characters, slower gameplay and hand drawn graphics, but proved that this game formula worked very well. This simple demo eventually lead to a much larger project, when full development began in early 2020, just in time for its global reveal for Pax Online. Since then the game has received a lot of positive praise for its inventive characters and addicting gameplay.
