About this game

Battle other heroes and villains in a gladiatorial contest to become the galaxy's champion.
“Hero or Villain: Battle Royale” is the second book of this epic saga, picking up from the epilogue of "Hero or Villain: Genesis.”

Kidnapped from planet Earth by the mysterious Lanista and forced to fight in the Battle of Champions, you will have to balance your training with fighting injustice in an alien world…or becoming a criminal yourself!

"Hero or Villain: Battle Royale" is a 260,000 word interactive novel by Adrao, where your choices control the story. The game is text-based, but includes some artwork. Your choices control the outcome of the game entirely.

Will you follow the tournament to its conclusion, and claim victory over colleagues and foes? Or will you start your own criminal empire, and accomplish the biggest heist in the history of the planet? Are you a loyal subject, or will you join the ranks of the rebels attempting to overthrow the rule of the Elders over the galaxy?

• Import your character from Book 1, "Hero or Villain: Genesis," or create a new one.
• Choose from dozens of powers. You can pounce on your enemies with the power of your fists, strike them down with hellfire, take control of their minds, dodge their attacks with your super-speed, or teleport behind their backs to strike them.
• Build your own gadgets, improving the quality of your armor or the weapons mounted on it.
• You can also learn new alien technology and design even more complex projects that will decide your fate in battles.
• Manage your relationships with your colleagues to help them succeed, or strike them down.
• Play as male, female, or nonbinary, and romance many of the other characters!
• Includes several illustrations to enhance your experience.
• Enjoy a variety of different game paths, with multiple side missions and endings.
• Try several different difficulty settings. Play as a mighty invincible hero, or just somebody only slightly more powerful than an average human.

It's fun for what it is, and there's a lot of flexibility both in terms of what exactly you do and your build. However, as another comment noted, builds are not balanced. Some simply dominate. In particular, time is broken beyond belief if you took max super speed and super psyche (to ignore telepaths), then picked up super strength and became a vampire in the previous game. It's a pure "I win" build. Nothing can even touch you or survive against you for much longer than the plot demands.

I enjoyed it, not much of a clear cut branch of where to go with each ending. The half time portion is somewhat geared towards death flags. It gives the relationships meaning, but easily thrown away. I like that it's a stand alone sequel to pick up and play, wish electricity superpowers had super speed as an association but that's a personal gripe. Replayability is not as inviting, costing a star. Your save file will be a preferred experience for battle royale
