Scream Go Hero is a voice-based platformer where the aim of the game is to get your character to the end of the level. Unless you choose the endless game mode where you need to go as far as you can. The only catch is you can only control movement with your voice/sound. The louder the noise you make the further your character jumps.

Mic check

Scream Go Hero is all about controlling the amount of noise you can make in order to progress through levels. Some jumps require you to physically scream whereas others just need a gentle whisper. It’s surprisingly fun and frustrating to yell at your mobile device just the right amount to complete a level.

If completing levels is too easy for you, then you can try the endless game mode. Just like many high-score chasers out there, you’re trying to complete as many jumps in a row without dying. This sounds easy, but trust me on this, it’s not!

Tips, Cheats and Strategies

  • Adjust your mic sensitivity. Depending on how much you like to scream or make noises, you will need to adjust the sensitivity in the bottom left corner. If you are playing in silence, then you can adjust the mic to be sensitive, meaning you don’t need to make much noise to make your character move. Slide it the other way if you are in a noisy environment where other noises could move your character besides your voice.
  • Adopt phrases. You may say whatever you like in order to make your character move, but I recommend sticking to certain phrases. This is because if you need your character to move a little, then you want a low syllable word. If you need to do a big jump, then you want to hold your noise for as long as you need.
  • Blow your phone. This may not actually sound like a tip, but if you turn your mic sensitivity way up, then you can blow at your phone for movement. This means you can do little or small blows for the jumps you want and can give you more control than words or phrases.
  • Watch where you play and what you say. Playing this game in public is guaranteed to turn a few heads. In fact, this could be a great game to play while pretending to have a conversation with someone. There is a lot of fun to be had with Scream Go Hero, you may have to leave your dignity at home.
