    Slayin may not have done much to quell my hopeless addiction to retro visuals, but it may have done me one better: it's raised the bar for all games like it.

    Slayin is an endless action-RPG that is exceptionally retro, and just plain exceptionally good.

    Slayin' is one of the best games I've played on iOS in some time. I'm really glad that it keeps In-App-Purchasing down to a minimum, and delivers enough thrills (retro or otherwise) to justify the meager price tag. If you're a fan of retro games and prefer gaming in small chunks, give this a shot immediately.

    We could make the argument that extreme grinding to unlock the best goodies somewhat lessens the appeal, or that the developers priced things too high, but neither of these debatable issues ruin Slayin. If anything, it's an ideal game for those of us who grew up mashing buttons on those NES controllers, with a bowl of Teddy Grahams and Ecto-Cooler within reach for much-needed breaks.

    Slayin' knows exactly what it is, an action game with some RPG seasoning to keep the player invested, but after a few plays, you'll see everything this title has to offer you.

    Featuring 8-bit graphics, a catchy chiptune soundtrack, and ginormous buttons for easy control, Slayin looks and feels like an old-school arcade game shrunk down to pocket size.

    Slayin ($0.99, Universal) is a neat little distraction that provides action packed gameplay, and a great retro style. The biggest problem is that you have to grind through so much to get to some features that you would think should be standard.

    Slayin´ is a hybrid of endless runners/arena combat/RPG that is a complete success at mixing all those styles in to one. Its so much fun to play, lots of upgrades, many different characters that a different to each other, generous. One of my Top5 endless runners. Collapse
