LightningCats are on the hunt - Join the Pride

Lighting! Lightning! Lightning Cats GOOOOOOOooooooo!

The Movie-Plex on Market Street is featuring a new theme. The Lightning Cats! True, the Lightning Cats are scheduled to be on TV only, but I don’t care. Cool is cool, is cool. Cool? Now YOU can defend yourself with the power of lightning… and kittens! There are plenty of LightningCats related items for you to stock up on, including HeroSmash’s FIRST hairs with CAT EARS! Cat ears people. There are also weapons galore for you to gear up with. So head on down to Market Street and visit the Move-Plex to get you super themed items. Tell them Yergen sent you, and they will probably not do anything!

THyton and Jemini cranked through these items. They really had a fun time with them.

What else are we working on?

Dumoose has been working something special to all new players, and future new players. It's a special tutorial mission, that will have you chasing down Mr Purple throughout the streets of SuperCity. It's a quick mission (with a strikingly fun cutscene) that will whow you the ins and outs of HeroSmash! I will reveal more info about it when it goes live on Friday.

A message from Super Death about the third trial

Salutations from the Fortress of Deathitude,

How have you been enjoying my trials? It takes a lot of work, on my part, to create them for you. I hope that you have found them a challenge. The third challenge was quite a piece of work. Traveling forward in time, creating a post apocalyptic universe, dealing with all that pig – well, you know. The genetic mutation alone took some considerable amount of effort. It’s been a nightmare for me. If I’m not setting up a trial, I’m on the phone, talking with the temp agency. Seems they haven’t been able to find a temp that can stomach the job. I guess not actually having a stomach works out for me. Ah well.

I must say that those that are taking on the challenges of my trials are showing serious promise. However, while Team Hero has still been powering through this third trial, I would have to say that all that style has finally paid off, and that this trial has shown a huge win for Team Villain. They have been calculated and vicious in their trial strategy, two elements that I see in myself sometimes. Team Hero, you have a lot of work to do in the next and last trial. However, if you show the strength that I have seen in the other trials you just might have a shot. This is getting exciting, I must say. I am impressed by everyone’s hard work, including my own! Keep playing, and remember, I am always watching. Now if you would please excuse me, I have a sky diving class with that Ferman Von Yergmeyer fellow. Being Death, I don’t get to make a lot of friends. But I must say, that Yorpin guy is a lot of fun to hang around with.

Trials and Magic Make HeroSmash Mega Epic

Who Run Trader Town?

Super Death reveals his third trial. It's time to go to a post-apocalyptic future and save TraderTown from mutants, crazies, and the giant BlasterMaster! 

In this crazy world, you will need to collect packs of gum from defeated enemies to trade in for supplies, and survive a high speed racing car game with huge powered-up turret guns! Listen all! This is the truth of it. Will you have what it takes to take on world with no rules? Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls... Dyin' time's here.

Randor and Zheenx have made a junkyard full of wicked weapon, just right for fighting. O and major props for Dumoose and Llusion. This map has gum trading and one AWESOME minigame that will have you racing through the desert.

Harriette Popper Has Delivered

Harriette Popper has finally managed to make the stuff for the gift shop apparate. See Sam in the Market Street Mega Plex to get you official Swinescab swag. All four houses are represented.

A major round of applause to Jemini, for single handedly making all the items for this movie release.

Good Job to the whole HeroSmash Team. Hooray!

This just might be HeroSmash's biggest week - EVER

Ok, so we have had some huge, epic releases in HeroSmash, but none of them have been THIS huge. Let me break it down for you…

The Third Trial of Super Death – Super Death may have taken a week off to recuperate from too much partying but he’s back with a vengeance. This next trial will be about strength and skills, but he doesn’t just stop there. Super Death has added a new element to this trial, speed. This is going to be one heck of a ride!     

Harriette Popper Part 2 – That’s right. Everyone had fun learning how to use the new magical powers, and now the gift shop has arrived. All four houses of Swinescabs will be represented. Jemini is in charge of these items, so you can expect them to be Popper-ific! This event will truly be magical.

Saved the best for last – I was looking around the lab today, and can you guess what I found. More Bag Space! I talked to Zhoom, and he said – ok. SO this week we will be maxing out the bag space to – wait for it – 100. Get those Smash Coins now. The price for the extra 50 bag slots is 8500 SC’s. It breaks down like this. 200 SC’s for 1 bag slot. 6000 SC’s for an additional 30. And 8500 for an additional 50! That’s 100 bag slots of awesome!

That’s a lot to do, I better get back to work!

Summer Shop, Captain Mack’s, Power Up, and Popper

Celebrate the summer at Captain Mack’s Head Shop

You’ve all wondered what the inside of Captain Mack’s Head Shop looked like, well now you can find out. It’s under new management and the Platinum Surfer is the new owner. She is a fun loving, free spirit who loves the fresh air and thrill of adventure. Summer is her time to shine, and she wants to share her love of summer with you. While you can also get all your head morph needs from the Platinum Surfer, she is also hosting the Limited Time Summer Shop.

There are over 25 items for beating your enemies while staying cool under the sun, including character surf boards, armors, weapons, and sunglasses.

What’s all this Hocus Pocus?

The Market Street Movie Plex is featuring the new movie Hocus Pocus Hijinx, and the star, Harriet Popper, has arrived on Market Street representing Swinescabs (the traveling Wizard Academy).

Before Sam and Dean could even get their Hocus Pocus Hijinx movie merchandise, Harriet Popper has appeared looking for help. Speak to Harriet to learn how to craft the 6 new magic powers, including the most powerful spell yet in HeroSmash: "Abra Cadavra!"

New magic powers are also available in Professor Smash’s Power Academy. We are magic CRAZY!


HeroSmash now has a power up button. Similar to the “rest” button this button (located next to the Fly button) will boost your regeneration power while not in combat. Hit Power Up and start that health bar rising.

Yet again, Randor, Zheenx, and Jemini have made some out of control items. Dumoose has done wonders with the new powers as well. Yay for us!

Limited Time Summer Shop - Good Vibrations

So I was hanging out with Super Death this weekend. Boy, can that guy party! I could tell that he was not going to be able to finish his third trial this week. I told him I had a completely ORIGINAL plan that no one has ever thought about. With this completely original plan I would save the day for him. He thanked me, and now I shall reveal my super amazing, COMPLETELY ORIGINAL, plan of awesome-ness! A LIMITED TIME SUMMER SEASONAL SHOP! That's right. All power people must have a matching swim suit weapon combo. Later this week, I’ll post a sneak peek of what to expect for this release, until then, TO THE LAB!

Oh, by the way, Super Death now owes me a favor. muHWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAW!

A brief message from Super Death

Greetings and Salutations my inspirations of villainy or justice. What can I tell you, I partied a bit too hard this weekend. That yellow guy, Yermen Fergemerger, or whatever, invited me to his mansion, and let me tell you that place was off the hook! Ugh - my head... Well, sadly I have not been able to concentrate enough to pull together a third trial for you to go through. You'd think I'd have these planned out, huh? Well no matter. That Yergum guy said he would take care of it. 

Oh yea. You guys probably want to know how I think you all are doing? I must say, everyone impressed me this trial. You all fought bravely, and used your minds as well as your fists. I'm torn on this call. Team Hero is pounding through this trial like a team with a purpose. Team Villain on the other hand is completing this trial with some heavy style. Which team am I leaning towards so far? Ugh, I don't know. I'm too partied out to decide. You guys pick this one for me, ok?

~Hugs and kisses,

Super Death
