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.

The Second Trial Is Live - Along With A New Movie

Super Death is very pleased with the results of the first trial. It’s time to open the portal to his second trial. If you are up to it, you will be put into one sticky situation. An asteroid has landed in the middle of the Super City Mall. Slimy creatures have poured out, and you must stop them.

Lokos and Electina have shown up to guide you. Fully completing the missions will rank you up in Super Deaths Shadow Faction, unlocking new powers and items. This trial is filled with 20 items, 2 of which will go rare when Super Death opens the portal to the third trial.

30 missions and a minigame will test your strength and your ability to think under pressure. Remember Super Death is watching you. Seeing how you play his trials, in order to decide which team he will join.

New Mega Plex Release – It’s Robo-Tastic!

Robo Morphers – ROLL OUT!!

The Robo Morphers have just opened at the Market Street Mega Plex. Head over to Market Street to get your morpher robot action items. They are Robo-Awesome.

Wait That’s Not All

On Friday the Fairgrounds get something new to celebrate. The 4th of July! This Friday, head on over to pick up your 4th of July themed items. Get there quick – I heard chudling are attracted to the smell of gunpowder. The 4th of July celebration will only be around for one week. It’s going to be explosive!

Once again the HeroSmash team has made me proud. Jemini, and Thyton never cease to amaze me at the awesome stuff they crank out. Randor is a beast at his items. Dumoose and Llusion are an unstoppable force at making these missions something really special. Zheenx, and Polistar did a great job on all of this week’s items. This week we also added a new player to the HeroSmash team. Hizu has joined in as an animator. Way to go Hizu! Good job as always team! If I was wearing a hat I would take it off to you all.

The First Trial of Super Death Is Upon Us

Super Death finally arrived in HeroSmash, and Super City may never be the same again. The great grim one himself is looking to be a super powered fighter, but is unsure what team to join. Should he step up to Team Hero, and use his Shadow Powers for good, helping the innocent and protecting the streets? Or should his Shadow powers be best suited for Team Villain? Spreading fear and chaos throughout the streets? He needs you to help him decide. Play through his trials and help him choose what the strongest team is.

The First Trial Is Hot

Super Death has arranged for a Volcano to appear in the middle of Super City. Go through the portal take care of the situation. Look for a Hero and Villain NPC to help you along the way. This all new zone has 3 new monsters and one big boss.

There are over 16 new items that will be available through quests or drop n shop. 2 of which will go rare when the next trial opens up. PLUS, you will find 3 new super powers: Frozen Spear, Lava Storm and Molten Armor!

Jemini, Thyton, Randor, Zheenx, Polistar, Dumoose, and Llusion all worked their butts off to get this release together. Good job all around gang! The next zone is going to be juicy!

Faction, Faction, Who's got a Faction?

There has been a major update to HeroSmash. Now the Good and Evil alignments are opposing. So if you complete good quests your evil rep lowers, and evil quests drop the good rep. Now you can truley be a part of Team Hero, or Team Villains.

In honor of the new Trials of Super Death we have also added a new faction to the line-up. Super Death's SHADOW faction. Those that rise up the ranks of this faction will be able to recieve special items and powers that only belong to the SHADOW faction.

Colors of Amazing Awesome
The color pallete got a huge upgrade thanks to Jemini and Zhoom. So many purdy colors. OOOOOOOOOOOooooooOooO. 


That's it for me, So tune in next time gang. Same Yergen Time, Same Yergen page.

Mega Plex Update and New Mentor Available

The Movie Mega Plex is seeing GREEN

Hey there power people. Make your way to the Market Street Movie Mega Plex. The current feature is the Lime Flashlight!

This super powered movie features special green energy items that will go perfectly with your official Lime Flashlight armor.  

Say the oath with me everyone:

In brightest rooms, in blackest streams,
No evil shall get away from my team!
Let those who kinda like evil’s scheme,
Beware my abilities… Lime Flashlights' beam!

A new mentor is available

The mentor system got a major upgrade today – A brand new mentor. The main four mentors that you know and love will always be there to guide all players through the game. However HeroSmash VIP Members will be able to have access to new mentors.

These new members will have special missions that only they can hand out. These missions will reward you with special items, or powers, or whatever they want to give you. The first of these new mentors is up now. There is a catch. You have to find out how to unlock the new mystery mentors.

It’s a secret. I could tell you but then I would explode. And I really don’t want to do that today. Here is a hint – Play the missions to unlock our first mentor. If you have played all the missions, then check and see if you have the new mystery mentor.

Team 10 arrives at the Movie Mega Plex


The uncanny force of Team 10 has arrived at the Market St Movie Mega Plex (*whew* That's a lot of M's).

There are armor, items, and hair styles for you to make yourself one of the elite. Also pick up some new powers. For the first time HeroSmash will be offering POWERS that will become perma-rare! What power will best suit you? Is it the Phoenix Fire, Magnetism, Foresight, Animal Fury, or Claw Fighter?

Jemini did a really good job on these items. Thyton had fun making Titanium 10 armor with Jemini. and Dumoose, yet again made some excellent powers. These are boosted powers that for the first time use multi-tasking! (Yep, multi-tasking. His words, not mine.)


Let me tell you.

* We made a big round of bug, and map fixes.

* Fixed some of the lag issues

* We also included the ability to see lost cutscenes through your HALdroid. Simply open your MISSION app, access the MISSION tab and find the mission that had the cutscene you were looking to re-see.

* Also included in the HALdroid is the new Artix Point Redemtion app. Now you can easily purchase and redeem artix points through the HALdroid. How cool is that!

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.

Hey power people!


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

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.

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

A Shriek Peek at what's in store for Friday the 13th

Hey power people! Yergen here. It’s Thursday the 12th. That means the spooky fog is rolling in around the celebration fair. What will be in store for those who are brave enough to visit Zazul’s Cirque du Muerte?  

Zazul has brought some particularly nasty beasts to play. The Alligaor Man of Alldinguo, and the Carnivorous Clowns of Killdarro are ready to show you why they are the most feared creatures around. Thyton really did a good job on these.


Zazul has brings his finest Armors, Weapons, and Items to all those daring enough to wield his wicked wares. Jemini made more items than you could fit in a creepy clown car. Randor, Ichidori, and Polistar all kicked up the item/armor machine to a level 13! This release is going to be INSANE! All of the items will be Holiday rares, and a couple will even be Perma-rare! Yea, that’s how we roll.

2 Days to HeroSmash Beta!!!

Members Zone Sneak Peek – Aquatian Ruins
2 days to HeroSmash Beta gang. To start off with, BIG thanks to Cysero who explained the AQW/HS Membership. If you missed it, you can see it here - Membership Breakdown. HeroSmash has it first Members Only zone. Welcome to the Aquatian Ruins!

This undersea reef is absolutely breathtaking. Malandria, the leader of the Aquatians needs your help. Something has fallen from the sky and landed in her Ancient Garden.

Watch out for Villonious. He may ask you to do something dastardly. If you are villain, you may be up for his special task.

Jemini and I really wanted this to be a beautiful and fun zone that players can fight and swim their way through. Not only that, but it’s an intro to a bigger and more action packed storyline.

Armor Sneak Peek
I know what you all really want to see. Armors, armors, armors! Well here are two new armors for you viewing pleasure.

You might have seen the Midnight Phantom before, however, that would be a surprise because it’s a bit of a ghost.

Last is really kick butt number from Jemini – whoa, where did it go? That’s the silly thing about ninja’s. One minute they are there, and the next they are gone. The Viper Ninja’s are especially dangerous. This costume makes me think of the Cobra Kai. In a good way. SWEEP THE LEG!

NPC Video Contest
DING DING DING! The time is up for this month’s “Who wants to be an NPC video contest”. We have a lot of amazing videos to sort through with some great characters. Tune in to find out if you will be the winner. Remember if your awesome hero/villain wasn’t chosen have no fear. This contest is not over yet. All your submissions and runner ups will be still in play in future selections. And if you want to try to make another new video feel free. We love them all.

Character Slots - This is what you need to know
There have been some questions about charater slots. Here are some answers. Currently everyone has one character slot in HeroSmash. If you purchase anything from within HeroSmash (VIP Membership, SmashCoins, ect) Then you will unlock the other two character slots. Imagine that! You could play as a Hero, a Villain, and ... well... other. Memberships and SmashCoins are account based, so all the benefits of having them applies to all of your super characters.

Tune in tomorrow for another big update on what to expect for our HeroSmash Beta launch! Tomorrow is Wednesday. That rhymes with Smed-nesday.
