Contains content that may not be suitable for persons under age 10. If this were a movie, it would probably be between G and PG.

As a direct continuation from the Super Heroic ending of the first game, Adam saved humanity from Pandora's Box and did so without killing Eve. She's at the hospital and Adam constantly waits for her to wake up. Things start to get complicated when a criminal empire finds the Pandora's Box virus and starts to turn it into a biological weapon, and if that wasn't enough, Adam has to face a familiar, "damaged" foe.

Again, this game has powers instead for items and you must select them, the same as you do with items, when the situation calls for it.However, there will be regular items in this game as well, if you find them.

Player Comments

As the second installment in the Homo Perfectus series, I'm happy to say that this was a decent sequel to Homo Perfectus, but I am a bit disappointed in some things about it. I like how more background information was provided and some time passed before the next conflict Adam will have to face. It was much more difficult and I like how more abilities were introduced but I have yet to use all of the abilities in the game.

Unlike Homo Perfectus, the writing is a bit choppy and I feel like it has dropped in quality from the first one. Fighting scenes felt short and uneventful, which also was disappointing. I think that more time and effort should have been put into this because I think that with more attention to specifics, this could even top Homo Perfectus.

The plot was basic and sadly wasn't as structured as I thought it would be. I liked how each scene was introduced though so that was satisfying to read and improved my overall opinion of the storygame. I understand that the advanced editor can be difficult to work with and to understand, so congratulations on successfully using to create storygames like this. The health was a bit broken though, so I was at -5 before I died, rather than at the traditional death mark: 0.

Descriptive writing is still a problem in this (sadly) and I wish that the author would include more because much of it is very repetitive and irrelevant to the situation itself, and as stated before, a storygame like this requires more descriptions than the average story.

Character introductions was improved from Homo Perfectus, so I'm very happy about that. I like how a side story was made for Damage so that his character can be developed and more understood by the readers. Adam has evidently grown a lot and I like how we have the choice to affect this and his actions.

I can't say much about the practicality of your solutions, as this is a superhero story, but the conflicts are generally realistic and are inserted at a good pace that complements the plot line nicely.

I was disappointed that we couldn't use some of the abilities in certain situations, and I could see ways for them to be used so that we can have a good variety of choices and endings for the story.

Spelling and grammar was even worse than in the first one, and I hate to say but the author’s lack of sufficient knowledge of the English language take s a bit away from the story in this one, which isn't a good sign. I think more proofreading is neccessary and shouldn't be done with more caution and care for detail.

This story was even better than the first one. I liked how the reader was given the chance to follow both Adam and Damage's stories/paths and see how they eventually meet each other. The plot was hooking and managed to keep my attention, and I liked the numerous fight scenes that popped up throughout the game. The writing was alright - the scenes were definitely more detailed, but some of them sounded as if the facts were merely being stated, such as the beginning one when the couple discovers Damage. It would've been better if dialogue was included, but it didn't really ruin the story. The characters had more personality in this game than the last one, and it was fun to learn more about them.

Overall, this game was enjoyable and more improved than the last one. It had the right amount of action and pacing, and I liked how the story gradually built up towards the climax. The fight scenes were sometimes hard to navigate through, and it took a few tries before I could finally defeat Damage without killing myself. Otherwise, it was fun to play and definitely a good way to spend time.

This was really really awesome! Magnificent improvement from HP1. There were still a few grammatical errors but they weren't at all like the first one and they weren't distracting whatsoever. As a non-native english speaker, you've done some incredible things. There was a gameplay flaw that I noticed. When I was hiding in Techno's closet, I should have been able to use my smelling to determine that they were still in the room. Also, some of the dialogue felt really contrived, particularly between gangsters. All of that being said, I really enjoyed this! Great job!

I really liked Damage. He was a badass. I wish he didn’t die but I accept it. Great writing.

Very good, but sometimes I couldn’t use a action to save me. Why?

Good story, I like how it kept the same mechanics as last time, but there are a few things I noticed that weren't as good as the first.

While neither story had much detail, this has even less and seems to progress too quickly without the details to support it. I also noticed more grammatical errors and misspells than the first. Also, the pictures were a nice addition, except for the fact the Eve had 2 pictures of 2 different people, although it did capture a fitting expression.

Still, no less entertaining than the first and I enjoyed it, I greatly look forward to reading the rest of the series.

Not bad, not bad at all. I'm a huge fan of the series so, when revisiting them, I was stoked to replay this one in particular. The unique take on a superhero storygame gives it a fresh playstyle, allowing the reader more flexibility with their path.

Got the herioc ending! A worthy game full of suspense, powers, fights and a good plot! I totally recommend it including all the other games in this troilogy.
