Rope Hero: Vice Town caters to all devices with some basic options around graphic quality and density of traffic that ensures even the less powerful devices will have a shot at running this action packed 3D game. To ensure you’re well equipped to enter this fast paced world you’ll begin with the game tutorial which details the dual stick control scheme (left stick to move and right stick to attack and aim) along with jumping, sprinting and the most important feature the use of your rope.

Said rope lets you easily move throughout the city streets and takes clear inspiration from the Spider Man series of games. Inspiration doesn’t stop there either with the game taking a number of cues from the GTA franchise with the likes of weapons, health, money and a police alert level also making their way into the core mechanics.

That isn’t to say that Rope Hero: Vice Town isn’t a great game by itself, it’s actually one of the best free roam mobile games you’ll find with great production values and design. Once you’ve gone over the basics the world of Vice Town is your oyster with players able to follow along the main quest or go on a rampage through the town for experience and money.

For the main story players at their home with the newly installed prototype suit which turns you into a super soldier but at the cost of your memories. From here you’ll hunt down a hacker and various other tasks in a quest to remember your past.
