Jeff Minter, the infamous games designer, has released another title into the iPhone and iPad App Store, Caverns of Minos.
The game seems to be a cross between Choplifter and Xenon, which sounds alright with us.
There are 21 levels to blast through, and it will no doubt be as hard as nails, but that shouldn’t detract from what is undoubtedly a decent game.It has that classic Spectrum/C64 look, and the typical level of craziness that you would expect from Llamatron creator Minter.
Here is the App Store description:
Caverns of Minos is a shooting/rescue game inspired by 8-bit cavern shooters, Lunar Lander games, and rescue type games. Fly one of four ships into the depths of 21 challenging caverns. Rescue as many minotaurs as you can and bring each cavern’s treasure back to the Mothersheep. Choose from 4 difficulty settings – Novice, Pilot, Warrior and Commander – each with its own unique ship
If that sounds like your cup of tea, then you can get the game from here
