There’s not a lot going for the game here. What it does have going for it is a trace of attitude. It’s not exactly mature, not yet, but I can see it growing into something more, given time. The author does get us comfortably into the mindset of our hero with the casual, somewhat sarcastic tone of the prose–acknowledging as well that our hero has his little flaws. This isn’t enough to carry the game or the story, however.

The short, punchy sentences and dripping sarcasm give the impression that the author is auditioning to be part of Clickhole's "Clickventures" comedy team - something like "You Just Got A Sword For Your Birthday, Time To Go Fight Crime!" - and initial impressions are promising. This sentence gives an idea of the tone: "Evil is around every corner and can strike at any time... A Hero needs to stay alert and thank God for 5-hour Energy!". Its funny. But not funny enough. Superhero Stress is flat and unoriginal in its current incarnation. Humorous takes on the superhero genre are ten-a-penny these days so it really needed something distinctive to stand out from the crowd. I, unfortunately, couldn't find it in the brief time I spent with it.
