It's sad to hear that Adult Swim - the surrealist publisher that dreamt up games about mass extinction, floating corpses, amateur surgery, workplace suicide, and condo-eating monsters - has finally run out of ideas.
Because either the imagination well has run dry in Atlanta, or the studio really thought there was more to be said about gimmicky endless-runner Robot Unicorn Attack.
This one-note joke centres on a mechanised unicorn that runs through a pastel-pink dream galaxy, past rainbows, space whales, dolphins, and giant seahorses. It's like a little girl's pre-Bieber fantasies. But with robots.
Robot Unicorn Attack didn't need a sequel, and it definitely didn't need grindy objectives, unlockable horns, and 69p songs. This sequel really chokes the life out of a chuckle-worthy joke
