Description

Minotaur Rescue is an oldschool arcade-style game for up to 4 players at once on iPad (2 players on iPhone).

Battle gravity, space rocks and marauding saucers as you fight to rescue endangered minotaurs and survive to gain the highest score.

Classic 8-bit graphics combine with modern effects, intense gameplay and finely tuned touch controls to provide a satisfying and exhilarating arcade gaming experience.

Minotaur Rescue is OpenFeint enabled.

Test your skills and challenge players worldwide on the online OpenFeint and Game Center leaderboards.

Just to round out your nostalgia trip, why not play one of the two extra bonus games "TANKS!" and "JETS!".

Created by Jeff Minter, one of the most experienced designers in this genre (creator of "Tempest 2000" and "Llamatron), Minotaur Rescue is the first in a planned series of games called the Minotaur Project.

The aim of the Minotaur Project is to create games in the style of old gaming systems but which are satisfying and fun to play for players both ancient and modern.

Oldschool style combined with thoroughly modern effects and controls designed for touch bring classic gaming up to date in the most engaging manner.

Try Minotaur Rescue, and see for yourself!

Minter genius.

This is to the Atari console era what Dark Void Zero is to the NES era. Imagine development on 2600 games had continued, the hardware being tweaked past it's technical limits—"Minotaur Rescue" would be the result.

The main game is basically the best-controlling and most nuanced version of "Asteroids" you've ever played. A single finger is all you need to wreak full havoc across the board. One mode is "straight," while the other has a fixed gravity well that can destroy you, minotaurs, and asteroids. Bullets are released rapidly to accommodate the action.

As long as you're not expecting the LSD-infused graphic stylings of "Tempest 2000" or "Space Giraffe," you will find one of the purest and most satisfying arcade experiences on iOS. Please make multiplayer possible over wifi/Bluetooth, as two-players on a single phone is never enjoyable.
