1000 Heroz Makes History with a Huge Update

Fast carts, crazy cannons, spinning wheels, and multiple Friend League support added to critically acclaimed platformer.

August 26, 2011— "Today is the dawning of a new day in Human History,” proclaimed Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx and Grandmaster of the Grand Poobahs.

“As The Ancient Age of Hungry Lizards comes to an end, and The Hungry Age of Famished Farmers begins,” he proclaimed,“I am pleased to proclaim the following new features for Heroz and players to enjoy:

    <*>Support for multiple custom friend leagues <*>New game elements: Fast Carts, Spinning Wheels, and Crazy Cannons! <*>Faster Heroz with improved running physics <*>New Run notifier– never miss a day

1000 Heroz is definitely being played– a lot,” said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx.“We have been keeping stats on our server which show just how dedicated the 1000 Heroz player base is.”

Those statistics include:

? Over 20 million game restarts since launch

? Over 5 million completed runs

? Over 6000 custom Friend Leagues created

The premise of 1000 Heroz couldn’t be simpler. Each day, you guide a new hero through a brand new level, running and jumping to get the fastest time possible. You can restart as many times as you like to get best time possible.

You can also revisit previous levels whenever you like– and there is no requirement to play the new level every day– the levels are always there, waiting for you.

1000 Heroz is available for $0.99 for iPhone, $1.99 for iPad through the iTunes App Store:
