How to play?
The game is completely free and you can play it on your phone, tablet, or laptop. You can also sign-up for a FREE account on the website to keep track of your progress and even compete with other users for bragging rights.
There are two types of players: Heroes and Villains. Heroes wear purple and Villains wear black. You may join either side after completing the “I’m A Hero” quest in which you wake up in a dark dungeon cell… with an evil villain named Darth Donny at the door complaining how he wants to kill you to become a hero but can’t because your cell’s key is missing. As you play the game, if you find the key and beat Darth Donny, you will be a hero and your character will wear white. If you lose to Darth Donny then your hero will don black and show his dark side by wearing a cape and giving out evil laughs… but he’s pretty cool!
What is new with NF Rising Heroes?
A new level of intensity! In NF Rising Heroes, everyone gets their own personal trainer. All heroes have access to a full-blown virtual gym packed with hundreds of exercises ranging from bodyweight exercises like push-ups, pull-ups and squats to more advanced weightlifting such as bench press, deadlift, curling, squat cleans and chin-ups. Users can also purchase individual workouts from the Fitness Store. The Workout Tracker will automatically track your progress, calculate the number of calories burned and give you access to a host of charts and graphs.
It’s an interactive game with social features! Don’t be shy! NERD FITNESS RISING HEROES has a ton of built-in social features that make it easy for you to compete against friends and family. The unique combination of “Challenge Mode” (a chance to fight on virtual battle grounds in PvP style games) and “Challenge Friends” (a chance to challenge friends on Facebook) encourages players to try new activities, hone their skills and build friendships both in the virtual world and in the real world.
