Description

Legendary Beast meets Legendary Game in Minotron: 2112

In 1991 Llamasoft released LLAMATRON: 2112, one of the most popular games ever on the Atari ST and Amiga, considered by many to be an all-time classic.

Today, 20 years later, the Minotaur Project brings you a modern update to that legendary game, featuring a legendary beast - the Minotaur.

Faster, smoother, and in every way better than the original, MINOTRON: 2112 brings you 100 levels of intense, fun and humorous arena shooting action, laced with shattering explosions and spectacular effects.

Four game modes offer fun and challenge to players of every level, from novice to hardcore, on iPad or iPhone.

Minotron: 2112 is OpenFeint enabled, and achievements and leaderboards are maintained in both OpenFeint and GameCenter. Get your beast on and challenge for the highest score!

With the release of Minotron: 2112 Llamasoft emphatically reaffirms the Minotaur Project's status as THE place to go to for great controls, excellent fun, and stone cold classic arcade action.

Minotaur Project #1: Minotaur Rescue.

Minotaur Project #2: Minotron.

Many more to come! Trust the Minotaur for the best arcade action on iOS.

MINOTAUR 4 LIFE!

Love letter to the 80's!

:
Minotron (2011), a remake of Llamatron (1991), itself a more newbie- and home user-friendly take on Robotron (1982), is brilliant. Unlike the original coin-op quarter-stealer, Minotron is designed to allow you to pass many levels, and you can also continue at your highest completed level so you're always making forward progress. Assisted and simplified modes offload the shooting tasks if you'd like a more relaxed game, but the normal and difficult twin-stick modes are the real experience. I like what the Yak has done here: instead of planting a virtual stick in a fixed position, or making you choose between lefty or eighty modes, you can adjust your play style on the fly. The FIRST touch moves the player, and the SECOND controls the aiming and firing. It's as if old Robotron used motion controls instead of plywood-mounted joysticks. Awesome, and should be a standard copied by other games. The pixel aesthetic borrows from other 1980s tropes, like Berzerk (the game), Pink Floyd, TRON (the movie and game), Bill & Ted, Yello, and the mighty Mattel Intellivision. Add in a screaming Mandelbrot enemy, an how could you want for anything else? Oh yeah, there are also tons of sheep, goats, camels, and llamas to rescue. So furry, so much fun. Buy it!

Shine On You Crazy Minotaur...

:
In general I'm finding myself liking this game so far but I'm gonna ding it one star because it does something terribly wrong, IMHO:

SOUND.

Yup, in general the sound blows the experience for me. Mostly because the game looks like you're playing an Atari 2600 on a bad TV, but to me sounds like those DOS games when VGA cards and Sound Blasters were new and people started swiping random sound bytes for digital samples just because they could. (Anyone else remember the game "Beer"? Aw Yeah!)

My second gripe would be with the controls. Not that they are bad (they are exactly what I was expecting after having played Minotaur Rescue a lot) but the dual-stick shooter fan in me yearns for fixed control spots.

Sounds negative, but I'm only going to ding the game one star for the above - it's lots of fun once you get past that, and I'm glad to see another Llamasoft title in the App Store.

EDIT: The original Llamatron 2112 is indeed one of these titles, and I shoudln't be compaining, but it'd be nice to turn off the sounds and just zone out to the KLF or whatever...

Installed wouldn't run, deleted and reinstalled wouldn't run. Deleted, powered off and reinstalled wouldn't run. Deleted and reset device and re-downloaded and wouldn't run. I quit. Waste of two bucks.
