The Good: Charming visuals, lots of powerups, OpenFeint support
The Bad: One enemy type, one map, slow paced
I can’t stress enough how many twin stick shooters are on the App Store, and how many are pretty bland. Minigore is among those, and while it has cute graphics with big headed characters, it doesn’t stack up among the greats. The enemy types are all the same which are large black furry creatures and they just range in size. The game turns from night to day and this changes game play a little bit, but not enough. You can find new weapon pickups, but since there’s only one type of enemy why does it matter?
There’s plenty of characters to unlock, but only one map to play on and this really stinks. Why do we have to buy more? The game really could have stood out with more enemies, maps, and just more to the game, but it’s your typical score racker that never ends. The game is also kind of slow paced, but the charm wears off after the first play through. If you really love twin stick shooters then Minigore is for you otherwise there are better ones out there.
