SelectionBefore playing a selected level from the level select screen, the player is prompted to choose from a selection of five heroes. These heroes only vary in appearance, and their selection does not affect gameplay. Completing Random Heroes with different heroes, however, allows the player to obtain different achievements depending on the hero they beat the game with.
At the start of the level, each hero is equipped with a gun, which they can use to defend themselves with. The choice of weaponry in the shop affects the gun's firing and damage rate. If the hero makes contact with an enemy or hazard, they will lose a portion of their health.
The bandit, gentleman and trucker are all available for the player to select as their character by default. As the player progresses in Random Heroes, they can earn achievements that will allow them to unlock two additional heroes. Unlocking the extra heroes also earns the player some more achievments.
- Psycho - Requires five achievements to unlock. Also unlocks the "Forgot my Medication" achievement.
- Cop - Requires fifteen achievements to unlock. Also unlocks the "The Long Arm of the Law" achievement.
The heroes were chosen to stop an invasion that occurred after two kids tip over a tomb stone, causing a portal to open. As enemies began to invade the town, the heroes, with their weapons and tools, helped save the world from the invasion.
