Inferno 2 is an intense dual stick shooter. With its super cool looking graphics, frenetic gameplay and stiff challenge, Inferno 2 nails the twin stick shooter genre and is a lot of fun to play.
In Inferno 2 players control a small ship with the familiar two sticks for moving and shooting. Players make their way through maze like levels with barriers that must be unlocked and copious enemies to be destroyed.
Inferno 2 is literally packed with enemies. Each level contains Cores, tough objects that constantly crank out enemies, often as fast as the player can kill them. The idea then is to wipe out the Cores as fast as possible while trying to avoid/kill the sea of enemies that infest the levels. Of course since enemies are created as fast as the player can kill them this involves an exciting, high risk style of gameplay where the player must move around enemies and be aggressive, threading their way through them to pick off Cores and stop the flow of foes without getting swamped. There are plenty of frantic moments spraying huge clouds of enemies with powerful weapons to try to thin the herd a bit in Inferno 2. This is a lot of fun.
The game also has some fairly dirty tricks to make life difficult for the player. Some passages have tidal effects that push players down them into waiting enemies or there may be barriers that must be touched with your ship to be released. Naturally, these barriers are packed with enemies who will flood out at point blank range after the barrier is dispelled.
A robust upgrade system helps the game along. Killing enemies and grabbing items during gameplay awards experience which can be used to power up weapons or increase max armour. There are multiple weapons in the game, such as bullets which bounce off of walls and are great for tight areas, homing missiles, mines and others. Each of these is good in a different situation.
Inferno 2 has a whole lot of levels and additional bonus levels are unlocked with keys. Keys can be bought with in game cash and thatâ€™s it. There are no IAPs here. The only cost for playing Inferno 2 is the appâ€™s initial cost. The only thing that matters is the playerâ€™s skill.
Inferno 2 looks fantastic. A really cool, glowy retro-style makes Inferno 2 looks like a combination of a retro arcade shooter and modern. The never-ending sea of enemies and sharp, defined graphics really make the game a great fit for mobiles.
Inferno 2 is a premier dual-stick shooter with lots of intense, fun gameplay, slick presentation and no in-app purchases. For any gamer this is a no brainer.
