No Heroes Allowed!, known as Yūsha no Kuse ni Namaiki da: 3D (勇者のくせになまいきだ:3D) in Japan, is the third game from the series. It was developed by Acquire and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation Portable in 2010 in Japan both physically and digitally, and in 2011 worldwide digitally only. It was ported to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on the 19th of July, 2022 for $9.99 USD, free with PlayStation Plus, and received an update adding trophies in January 2023.

Its soundtrack was released as an album, Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida:3D Giant Recital, on 24th March 2010.

Gameplay

No Heroes Allowed!'s gameplay is the same as previous releases, but with new gameplay features. It introduces Badmella, Badman's villainous daughter and the second half of the new Badman & Badmella multiplayer mode. Another prominent new feature is the addition of water and aquatic monsters, which add significant new strategies to the game. New pickaxes have been introduced, obtained by collecting Dragon Orbs dead heroes and allowing the God of Destruction to be more direct in gameplay. Fossils have replaced Treasure Chests, which appear randomly when soil is dug. New monsters and hero occupations have also been added, such as Level 5 Breeds and Iron Men, respectively.

Reception

No Heroes Allowed! was seen as an excellent addition to the series, but still remained esoteric and difficult for outsiders to get into. It maintains a 71% critic score and 7.7 user score on Metacritic[1].

Japanese outlet GameWatch admired the game's sheer amount of content, noting that Dungeon-a-Day adds content comparable to Story mode in scale; notably, the God Aptitude Test's content was recognised, being 50 questions long. Badman & Badmella was seen as a nice and in-tune with the game's core philosophies. Water was lauded, and was seen as "a dream come true" for fans given its regenerative properties; however, in the same vein, the changes to heroes and monsters made old strategies no longer work, which could be a sour spot. The addition of difficulty options was praised, believing it helped with making the series more accessible, but felt that they didn't help much.

IGN gave the game a 7/10[2], seeing it as the perfect game for a fan of the previous titles. The amount of content included was one of its biggest selling points, especially for the $9.99 price tag. However, the sheer difficulty of the title was seen as a steep downside, and the Almanac was criticised for not having enough information. The nutrients and mana system was seen as one of the most frustrating elements in addition to the difficulty, compounded by the lack of player control.
