H.E.R.O. Description

H.E.R.O. is a computer and video game published by Activision in 1983. It is available for the MSX, ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 home computer systems and early games consoles such as the ColecoVision and the Atari 2600.

H.E.R.O., supposedly meaning "Helicopter Equipped Rescue Operation", is a platform-style action game, set in a system of underground mines.

The player's character in H.E.R.O. is a rescue worker with a small helicopter-type backpack, enabling him to fly around the underground mine shafts and caverns. For defense, the character is equipped with a laser beam and a finite supply of dynamites.

The object of each level is to rescue a trapped mine worker at the extreme end of the mine shaft. Dangers along the way include various cave-dwelling animals (like bats, snakes, spiders and even butterflies) and on later levels, some kind of red ore which is lethal to the touch, and water at the bottom of the shaft.

In the late 1990s, a fan-made project called HHH was made to port H.E.R.O. to the Amiga computer platform, but the project was never finished.
