A less-than-random encounter

Product: Random Heroes 2
Publisher: Ravenous Games
Format: iPhone, iPad
Not so long ago, Random Heroes appeared on the App Store and quickly won us over.
Each bite-sized level was positively packed with aliens to gun down, and we gave the game a Gold Medal for its glorious celebration of all things retro and violent.
Random Heroes 2 has arrived on the scene, and it takes the form of a continuation of the original's love letter to side-scrolling platform shooters.
In short, it's more of the same - and that's a good thing.
It would be entirely fair to call Random Heroes 2 an expansion of the first Random Heroes. You face the same types of enemies using the same oddball collection of heroes with the same types of upgradable weapons.
An excellent entry in the catalogue of mobile side-scrolling shooters. The pacing, challenge, and action are pitch-perfect
