Rather than give you all the levels upfront, 1000 HEROZ offers one new level a day for 1,000 straight days. The concept works because you'll find yourself looking forward to seeing what's coming next. But at any time you can play all the previously unlocked levels to try for a better score, earn up to three stars, and win a bronze, silver, or gold star for playing well.

The gameplay is a cross between platforming and racing. You'll start in the prehistoric age and your job is to have your caveperson run and jump through a 2-D world to reach the finish line as fast as possible. You'll hop over rocks, ice, and chasms; slide down cliffs; spring off branches; and push a Flintstones-inspired car down a hill. The entire experience lasts only about 20 seconds per level but you'll likely tackle it a few times to get the best possible time. Later on in the game, you'll unlock new characters (one new hero a day), numerous eras (time periods), and unique levels. Play well and you can also unlock one new relic per level, many of which are humorous. Even if you think the 1,000 days' worth of levels is a gimmick, the gameplay is fun and frantic and the cartoon graphics are charming. New obstacles and helpful platforming aids (like something that looks like Jell-O to bounce you higher) add to the game's appeal. iPad gamers might opt for the HD version of 1000 Heroz. With so much daily content coming, there's a lot to look forward to with this app.
