The first console I was ever lucky enough get my grubby mits was on was the glorious Atari 2600.  While there were obviously a million and one amazing games for the lovely wee black box, one that I could never get enough of was the mighty “H.E.R.O”.

Basically you move this wee dude down through various blocky backgrounds, avoiding bombs, bats and most importantly the walls, harder than it looks. The game was ported across to various other consoles across the years including fairly recent XBox 360 and PC versions but you know it won’t ever capture the magic of playing it with that awesome controller.

An Android version would be nice right enough.
