iOS And Android Games Of The Week: September 14, 2012
A heavily-armed commando and prince share the spotlight.
In a surprise twist we didn't see coming, both of today's games take place in 2D, but still pack a ton of fun. For iOS, you'll lay waste to thousands of zombies, while on Android, you can stop Jaffar from claiming the throne. Without further ado...
iOS: Apocalypse Max: Better Dead Than Undead
2D games are commonplace on the App Store, but few look as good as Apocalypse Max. Created by Wandake, this gorgeous side-scrolling shooter sends you through 20 levels filled with 16 different types of zombies, from standard issue walkers to vultures and piranhas. Featuring hand-drawn artwork, simplistic controls and old school blasting that harks back to the 16-bit glory days, there's a lot to love about this title, especially since it comes with the pulse rifle from Aliens. Can't say we expected that.
Android: Prince of Persia Classic
Welcome to the party, Android fans. Ubisoft finally got around to releasing Prince of Persia Classic on Google Play, and it's a solid port, delivering the original PoP experience with revamped visuals and the same platforming thrills we've come know and love, but with achievements and a butterfly that assists users through trickier segments. You may need it to avoid spiked pits, perilous drops and enemy guards looking to poke the prince full of holes.
