Deadbeat Heroes' might sometimes be unintuitive, but emphasizing player experience, challenge, and aesthetics isn't a bad approach.

Deadbeat Heroes is a good first effort from the small team at Deadbeat Productions. The combat is fast, fluid, and easy to learn – even if it lacks the depth of a good combo system. Enemies are well-varied, as are the environments.

6.7 / 10.0
Dave Aubrey

Deadbeat Heroes is a fun co-op beat ‘em up with a lot going for it and a strong sense of style, as well as a sense of humor. While it's not the best brawler I've played lately, I believe that with some refinements, a sequel could be fantastic.

Deadbeat Heroes is an average game that is made far worse by poor design choices.
