Jeff Minter is a living gaming legend and the one and only properly psychedelic, llama-loving game designer mankind has ever known. It shouldn't thus come as a surprise that Minotron: 2112 is by far the very best arena shooter the iOS has to offer, and this is something I am saying after over 10 hours of battling the thing. It's filled with brilliant little touches, surreal retro-inspired enemies, all sorts of game modes and some brilliantly balanced attack waves, while simultaneously sporting a fantastic learning curve and smooth controls. Did I sound excited enough? Good. Now, grab it.
Minotron: 2112 is available as a universal iOS app and costs a ridiculously low £1.49.
