Atomine review - An original and super slick twin-stick shooter


For: iPhone   Also on: iPad

All mine

Product: Atomine | Publisher: Broken Arms Games Pty Ltd | Format: iPhone | Players: 1 | Version: Europe
 
Atomine is a fiendish twin-stick shooter that looks unlike anything you've ever played on your mobile before. It mixes glitchy cyberpunk graphics with super slick arcade gameplay.

And there's a level of polish here that makes the game fizz off the screen. It's the sort of game that makes you want to play more, while never pulling any punches.

If you're looking for the next premium game to stick onto your iOS device, then there's a very good argument to make it this one.

Laser cool

You're controlling a node, weaving through a series of levels and blasting red enemies into literal digital bits. Ostensibly you're hacking into a computer system, and the bad guys are the security you're trying to bypass.

The levels are thick and grey, made of towers that morph and change as you move through them. There's a chunkiness to the blasting that makes everything feel solid. You're a part of the world in a way that few mobile shooters can manage.

The controls feel just right, and you never miss a shot or fail to dodge a bullet because of them. But it's not the sort of game that just offers surface fun.



There's a depth to the game that unlocks as you play through. You'll change the loadout of your node, picking a style of blasting that suits the way you play.

Things aren't offered to you on a plate though. To get the most out at Atomine you need to discover things for yourself, finding the different mechanics and additions through exploration.

And that's key to the experience. This feels like a grown-up game, the sort of experience you're going to remember when you put it down.

Atomic kicking

Atomine is the kind of game we need to see more of on the App Store. It's not just polished, it's massively entertaining, and it sucks you in with smart play and no hand-holding.

It's worth every penny you're going to pay for it, and you're going to spend all the time you're playing it with a big smile on your face.
