The Nardio Review
Is it worth your time?
What should I play it on?
Random Heroes 2 plays perfectly on iPad, iPod touch and the iPhone iOS 3.1 and later. You get the same great experience with all devices. As always I prefer gaming on my iPad 2.
What did you think without spoiling it?
More fun than the original!
Random Heroes 2 is way better than the original. The gameplay is a much more interesting and satisfying. The game, just like its predecessor, is built on a currency system for upgrades. You want better health or a more powerful gun? You better save up to buy a stronger character and that Phaser. It took me about three days of on and off play to finish the game with four new characters unlocked and four new guns. Once again, I really enjoyed it the experience. It has in-app purchases for coins if you don’t feel like grinding out the money you need and want to just start slaughtering from the get go. The game could use an extra level or two to really make the most out of all your extra Heroes, but overall Random Heroes 2 is well worth the cost of admission.
How does it play?
The controls are perfect. I love being able to aim my gun higher to take out the baddies. The graphics are what you would normally expect from Woblyware. Good ole retro goodness looking awesome on your new iPad or whatever your choice iOS device is. Once again the music is just as engaging as the graphics and the gameplay. The difficulty is perfectly balanced and, for a game with in app purchases, it wasn’t that hard to get coins. Sure there was some grinding involved, but it wasn’t an ordeal. There is nothing in the game store that is so astronomically priced that would force you to spend a dime. Of course, if you want to thank the Woblyware and Ravenous Games for this, sure go ahead and spend a few bucks.
Why it works:
Random Heroes 2 is yet another modern classic 2D platforming shooter. If you loved games like this in the past you will love what Woblyware and Ravenous Games have brought you here. Sure it feels like a lot of their other games, but that’s a good thing since most of those games are awesome. This is a winning formula and one that I’m glad to spend my money on.
Sure there is some in app purchases store here, but you don’t need them. Everything is buyable. Its going to take time, but it never feels like you are being nickel and dimed.
Just like the Random Heroes 1 you are going to find out pretty quickly that you are ill equipped to handle the levels with the hero and guns you start with. Save up, upgrade, and shoot more and you will soon be a killing machine. But even if you don’t want to spend the time grinding you can still try and speed run the levels. Its not going to be easy, and the bosses will punish you for it, but go ahead and try your best.
Its a pretty perfect game as far as I’m concerned. I would love another world or two. But for .99 cents its a good experience.
