War in the Park - The End

The war between DaVinci and Demolicios, over the control of the Pandorian Malachite, comes to a crashing end.

You have fought hard to help, but who will be the ultimate victor? Will the evil DaVinci complete his dastardly mission? Will the heroic, yet misguided Demolicious stop DaVinci? That's not all. The story continues after the smoke and debris has settled. Travel to the Franklin Street Apartments to continue the story. Look for a handful of new items being dropped and rewarded.

Randor and Jemini made a ton of items for this release, and they hope you like them. We even have a special cutscene made by yours truly. It's like a choose your path cutscene that will play out differently depending on who you are fighting for.

Movie Mega-Plex gets a kick to the solar plexus

Hey power people!


Pirates items have gone for good *tear. But they have been replaced by Super Cities newest movie release - HIYA! PANDA.

Get your kung fu and animal mash ups in the Market Street Movie Mega-Plex.  Jemini and Thyton had fun with these items. SO much fun, even Randor the Red wanted in on the party.

Remember ALL movie items are PERMA RARE! THey will be around for a week, and then the are gone for good.


This Friday the epic battle between the evil, yet determined Davinci and the heroic, yet misguided Demolicious comes to a epic climax. There is an action packed cutscene. that is different depending on which side you are fighting for. If that wasn't enough, there is also TWO bosses and a bunch of new war related item drops, including some Perma-Rare items. And because we just don't know when to quit we also include a new map for you to explore, complete with new quests.

Demolicious vs. Da Vinci: Final Battle!

Greetings, Heroes and Villains of Super City!  This week, the war between Demolicious and Luigi Da Vinci reaches its end.  Their fight over the statue of Pandora in the Park has been raging for months now.  It looks like the Villains are winning!  YOU, the players, have determined the outcome of this war, and where this story goes next is because of you!  There is still time, however, for the Heroes of Super City to band together and turn the tide of the war. 

Either way, expect boss battles, new items, and an awesome special cutscene from Yergen!

Yea yea – Pirates, blah blah – What else is new?

We made some graphical changes to the engine to help game play, and stories a bit easier to understand.

Aquatian Ruin got an update and a corrected cut scene. Visit Malandra in Overlook and you can see her see the new cut scene for yourself.

Spear has moved to his new location – Professor Smash’s Power Academy in Liberty Square. That’s the place you want to go for all your super power needs.

Friday the 13th Will Be A Celebration You Won't Forget

Greeting power people!  Time is ticking down and I thought I would give you a sneak peek at what is planned for our HeroSmash Friday the 13th release. I give you Zazul and his Cirque du Muerte!

On the night of Thursday the 12th an eerie fog forms around Celebration Fair. When the people of Super City awake, there is Zazul and his creepy carnival of freaks and shrieks. Will you have what it takes to outlast the Carnivorous Clowns of Killdarro? Are you strong enough to take on the Alligator Man of Alldinguo? Zazul will be selling his finest carnival weapons and armors for all those who are brave enough.

Zazul and his morbid minions will be blowing in this Friday, but they won’t be there for long, and there is only one this year.

Are you ready to hit as hard as a Norse God?

In honor of a certain unnamed super hero movie releasing this weekend we will be launching the Sky God set. This electric set comes with a new armor, weapon (Sky Hammer), and a brand new power... LIGHTNING! That’s right; you now get to call down the destructive force straight from the sky. The energy element is making its way to Hero Smash with Lightning Strike and Thunderous Rage. Check it out! Keraunophobics be warned.

Where do you get all these awesome powers and gear? Well, I'm sure Spear will tell you.  We did announce he won right? We didn't? Um... Hmmm. Is my face red (which makes it more of an orange-ish color) HA! Well now you know! Spear is our newest Player NPC selected from his impressive “Who Want's to be an NPC” submission. Tomorrow (Friday) you can go looking for Spear, and you can get the Sky God items from him.

I got a message from Dummose today. He asked me to tell you the exterminators were working feverishly to rid Super City of as many bugs as possible. You may want to wear your Red Soldier Helms to avoid inhaling those harsh but squashing fumes.
