CON-tinuation of my Atlan-ture


Hello Smashers,

Randor here! For the last couple of years, I've been wandering the halls of what is known as Atlanti-Con and just my luck! I have gotten the brochure for this year’s con. Who knew Earth had a postal system to my Red Planet?! I'm super excited to go back! I've gotten to meet pretty amazing people and have seen some awesome costumes while I was there during my past trips and it's always had been a great experience! I'm excited to go and I'll be sure to let you all know about what crazy adventures I have in store this year so be prepared for an epic flood of robot costumes and rainbow-colored hair for a sci-fi anime filled convention is gathering this autumn.

Super Secret Info

Psst… Have you heard the news? We here at HeroSmash are updating the site with Super Secret Information about Artix Entertainment’s new games!  We have information on the new 3D MMO Adventure Quest 3D! The game looks incredible! The world is beautifully crafted by some of their best artists! Never before has Lore looked so amazing! I can’t wait to run around in 3D and visit my favorite places around Lore, such as Greenguard Forest, Battleon, and Yulgar’s Inn!


We also have information about our new mobile games as well! Such as BioBeasts, which is based off of everyone’s favorite enemy type from EpicDuel! You get to control one of those beasts and defend yourself from waves of enemies! It looks so much fun! And Undead Assault, where you play as Artix fighting off waves of Undead! I heard it's based off a minigame that’s on! Have you seen the great images of that Dracolich! I wouldn’t want to run into that in the woods at night! 


If you want to learn more, we have plenty of info and links to all sorts of cool stuff! Be sure to check it out on this site's Homepage!

Freedom Day!

Freedom Day!

Hiya SMASHers!

It's been a while since my last transmission to the people of the pretty blue planet!

I been away on my homeworld, Rouge, a planet with five moons recovering from my last battle! Now I am back to face my foes once again. Wow, my mailbox was full of birthday letters! Here on this planet, you celebrate the same day as my Birthday as Cinco de Mayo (and Happy Birthday to all, too).  I missed the party, but did pick up some items from these folks who bend forks with something they call the Force!

But before I unpack and put these items into the Cinco de Mayo shop, I am adding some new guitars to the Freedom Day shop! These guitars are painted in colors of the first 3 nations to sign the free travel pact. So show your pride for the day when the whole planet become one nation allowing the freedom to travel and visit (and battle) anyone in the world. This also made it so heroes and villains wouldn't be slowed down by toll booths!

But let's also hope one day it will become a day where everyone has the freedom to be whoever they want to be and to share their lives with whoever they wish . . . Happy Freedom Day!

We did it, Hero!

Our 1st mobile game just hit 1,000,000 downloads! But here is the crazy part... less than 1,000 have reached the end of the map and defeated Dargon the BOSS DRAGON. In fact, most players do not make it past level 10... can you do better? Battle on!

Winter Woes

Hiya all SMASHers!

Sorry for silence last past months, there has been a lot going on!

I have been mostly been away dealing with the hardest Winter the Secret Outpost has ever experienced (and some personal family issues). Many times I wanted to move the Secret Outpost to one of the icebergs in the bay and float down south to the AE HQ where icebergs are so small they call 'em ice cubes!

Don't worry, though. While the maps did not get updated as planned, the down time was used to increase game security and make improvements to the game servers.

Lucky Day got released this week, but the snow storms made it impossible to work on new items. If we get lucky next week, some new rares will be added along with some final tweaks to the new NPC on Overlook – Pat O'Gold (yes, I love puns).

Now that Spring is around the corner, expect things to pick back up. Also, I will soon be looking for new volunteer developers (I'll post more details when the time comes).

As always, stay safe and keep warm!
