H.E.R.O. is a rare fast-paced platformer for the Atari 2600. You control a man with a gyropack who must traverse caves, avoid dangerous enemies, and use a few sticks of dynamite to blast open paths in order to rescue trapped miners.

StarvinStruthers improves upon the previous publication by 4.77 seconds, due to the use of a new glitch called the "Door Skip".
