Experience nearly a dozen quest lines in Rope Hero: Vice Town a game that has you swinging around the town with realistic physics and a large range of weapons to use.


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.


Like most free roam games though this can quickly fall by the waist side and particularly so in Rope Hero: Vice Town as their are incentives to exploration be it experience or money which can be directed to improving your strength. On the experience front you’ll be able to convert it to tangible benefits such as extra health, health regeneration, stamina, damage and vehicle buffs.

Combined with the other mechanics at play such as random gang wars that break out in front of you, a decent range of vehicles to drive (radio included) and the growing potency of weapons as you accumulate money, Rope Hero: Vice Town is one of the top gaming titles in this space.


  • Inspired by GTA and Spider Man.
  • Set the graphics and traffic density based on your device.
  • Use your grappling rope to bounce around the world.
  • Complete a main quest or go wild instead.
  • Level up and gain new passive abilities.
