Pavel Prokonich, CEO of HeroCraft: “We at HeroCraft remember spending hours in front of our screens trying to escape those falling boulders and having a great time of it! We hope iOS users will enjoy digging into this amazingly fun gameplay just as millions of players before them have for close to 30 years!”
