When MiniSquadron arrived at the AppStore in November 2009, it immediately got high praise from critics and quite a bit of love from the gaming community. I myself gave it a firm Kiss-it rating and it hasn’t left my iPhone since. That’s why I was thrilled at the opportunity to review its follow-up: MiniSquadron Special Edition
When I first saw the trailer for Fox Vs Duck (from the makers of the hit title MiniSquadron), I wondered to myself what sort of game this would be, given that the trailer was simply a visually stylized fox chasing around a visually stylized duck, catching it, and… well, lets say the end wasn’t pretty. I love mysterious trailers, so naturally I wanted to try the game. Turns out the game is not much more complicated than the trailer, and oddly enough I’m perfectly okay with that. Feel free to discuss this review of Fox Vs Duck in our forums.
Update: Our review of Fox Vs Duck is now up on TMA.
Back in the day when eat or be eaten ruled our insular universe, things were easy. Now, flesh and blood contend with the following: work or starve, bib or drool, stripes or polka dots – it ain’t easy. Fox VS Duck, a Zen-like game, aims to bring that simplicity back to gamers’ lives. Fox VS Duck comes from the same brilliant minds who brought us MiniSquadron. MrFungFung have this to say about their upcoming game:
It’s all about addictive, hypnotic gameplay in a stunningly elegant zen environment. We invite you to take part in Fox Vs Duck, a quirky and poetic game of Prey and Predator, of Life and Death.

More after the gap:
We often find ourselves going back to fond childhood memories of the games we played back in the “good old days”, when the quality of the game play itself on the PC was far more important than flashy graphics. Dogfighting games were always addictive and came in a multitude of varieties, but all had one thing in common: game play which while quite simple, required incredible skill and finesse. And don’t even get me started on the glorious feeling of pounding your friends to dust in hot-seat multi player (yeah, that was the only way you COULD play multi player in those days). Well, MrFungFung has brought the same good ol’ fun to the iPhone!
