  • Summary: Legendary Beast meets Legendary Game in Minotron: 2112

    In 1991 Llamasoft released LLAMATRON: 2112, one of the most popular games ever on the Atari ST and Amiga, considered by many to be an all-time classic.

    Today, 20 years later, the Minotaur Project brings you a modern update to that
    legendary game, featuring a legendary beast - the Minotaur.

    Faster, smoother, and in every way better than the original, MINOTRON: 2112 brings you 100 levels of intense, fun and humorous arena shooting action, laced with shattering explosions and spectacular effects.

    Four game modes offer fun and challenge to players of every level, from novice to hardcore, on iPad or iPhone.

    Minotron: 2112 is OpenFeint enabled, and achievements and leaderboards are maintained in both OpenFeint and GameCenter. Get your beast on and challenge for the highest score!

    With the release of Minotron: 2112 Llamasoft emphatically reaffirms the Minotaur Project's status as THE place to go to for great controls, excellent fun, and stone cold classic arcade action.

    Minotaur Project #1: Minotaur Rescue.

    Minotaur Project #2: Minotron.

    Many more to come! Trust the Minotaur for the best arcade action on iOS.

    It all comes down to finding the game mode that's right for you and then immersing yourself in what is one of the App Store's weirdest but still enjoyable Apps.

    Quite fun at times, but its controls can make the game more frustrating than it ought to be. Still, if you love retro-inspired games, and especially the Llamatron and Robotron games, or just want something a little different from the typical arena shooter, Minotron: 2112 is a solid purchase – and at worst, it's interesting reading material.

    Handily, Minter has come up with a novel swipe-based aiming system, designed firmly with strafe tactics in mind. Rather than having to deal with precise movement and shoot at the same time, you can focus on getting out of the way of the onslaught and adjust your firing direction only when necessary.

    If there's a downside to the game, it's that it really isn't built with everyone in mind. It's super strange, and if you're not into it the weird effects and sounds will really just make you hate it even more.

    This is a rather excellent traditional shooter in the mold of Robotron but with all the craziness of a llamasoft game. Classic arcade goodness, recommended for retro arcade gaming fans. Expand
