Of all of my university years, probably the two games I have most fond memories of are Heroes of Might and Magic III (which already have seen an iResurrection as Palm Heroes (TMA Review) ) and Worms 2: Armageddon. Ah, those hours upon hours spent in the dorm with my buddies, a couple of crates of beer and Worms 2 instead of wasting time on stupid old lectures… And when I saw this classic pop up again recently on the App Store, tears of nostalgia built up inside me.
What an interesting week this was. Being Halloween week there was naturally an influx of zombie games. However, the big news came in the revitalization of a 10 year old Dreamcast game – ChuChu Rocket. This puzzle game is available for all iDevices, sports plenty of game play modes, and allows you to play 4 players on the same device if you own an iPad. If you’re into galaxy spanning crusades then Fishlabs has you covered with Galaxy on Fire 2, the sequel to their popular 3D shooter / simulation game Galaxy On Fire 3D. Gun Bros is one of the latest dual stick shooters to hit iOS devices, and it’s unique 2 player game system allows you to wrack up experience even when you’re not actually playing the game. And, if you haven’t gotten enough of the Duke Nukem wanna-be Barry Steakfries there’s Age of Zombies, the “re-imagining” of their popular 2D sprinter Monster Dash.
