One Way Heroics Plus adds in three more classes – the Force Knight, the Ninja, and the roguelike legend Tourist – as well as a load of new items, skills, NPCs, UI updates, and the ability to upgrade your castle with Dimensional Coins.

He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
