Atari 2600 H.E.R.O. – Can You Help “Roderick Hero” Save the Trapped Miners?

H.E.R.O. (standing for Helicopter Emergency Rescue Operation) is a video game designed by John Van Ryzin and published by Activision for the Atari 2600 in March 1984. It was ported to the Apple II, Atari 5200, Atari 8-bit family, ColecoVision, Commodore 64, MSX, and ZX Spectrum.

The player uses a helicopter backpack and other tools to rescue victims trapped deep in a mine. The mine is made up of multiple screens using a flip screen style.

The player assumes control of Roderick Hero (sometimes styled as “R. Hero”), a one-man rescue team. Miners working in Mount Leone are trapped, and it’s up to Roderick to reach them.
