Review: Little Town Hero (PlayStation 4)

The story is set in an isolated village on the edge of the world. The only gate leading outside is heavily guarded by a castle, and the villagers are not allowed to leave.


  • Beautiful Anime style graphics.
  • Enchanting soundtrack.
  • 1.70gb download size.
  • Opening training battles.
  • Gameplay.
  • Combat is turn-based. You have Izzits which is a move you can perform if you have the power tokens. Playing an Izzit makes it a Dazzit. Dazzit collides and takes and makes damage as shown on the Izzit. Break (destroy) opponents Dazzit to make damage to them if you have the spare Izzit.
  • In combat you both have 3 hearts, first to lose all hearts loses.
  • Save when you want.
  • Two difficulties-easy and hard. Can swap anytime in the menu.
  • Invert axis.
  • 3 Izzit types- yellow (shield), Blue (one time use), and Red (attack).
  • Fast travel to any unlocked area.
  • Location–during combat, you will change the location by rolling a random number generating and moving around the area. You do this so you could get an advantage like gain a helper.
  • BP-battle points earned when you get an all break but can’t take a free hit on the enemy.
  • BP is used to either reactivate a used idea or take an idea out of your headspace (the place where u picked ideas live).


  • Long unskippable intro. (more annoying for returning players)
  • Defaults difficulty to hard.
  • Slow starter.
  • Slow text conversations.
  • Personally do not enjoy the combat, it’s long-winded and drawn out and is not that satisfying.
  • The whole location thing is kind of a luck-based scenario.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
