My Heroes Ability
My Heroes Ability.jpg

My Heroes Ability was a Facebook application based on the abilities from the world of Heroes. The application was part of the Zynga gaming network.


This application was created in late 2007 by Kenneth Chiu and his team of developers. As of February 2008, there have been many changes, including a Battle System, and World Locations. As of December 2009, the game is no longer available.


Each player is randomly assigned an Ability and two Actions to go with it. The player levels up his character by attacking friends or other people using the Battle System. As players level up, they can buy new Actions or new Abilities.


The Abilities are currently:
