FreeIt’s time to get radical in a new fast action arcade game from the makers of Mikey Shorts, Mikey Hooks, and Mikey Boots. The game is straightforward to say the least as you pilot a little white arrow through a series of gaps in walls. That’s really all there is to it as the gaps shift, sometimes completely off the side, and all you do is hold left or right to move in that direction. Radical is deceptively simple, as it’s effortless to pick up and play, but quite a challenge to actually do well.
The fast action arcade games have become possibly the most popular genre in the App Store, and that will continue if Radical has anything to say about it. The best part of Radical is that there’s not just one endless mode, but two. You can dive into a hard mode, and the name is probably underselling the difficulty. Once you get the hang of the normal mode, and are having a Radical time, the hard mode will put you right in your place of being overwhelmed by the challenge. The gameplay is fine tuned to be played in short bursts, yet it’s easy to just keep replaying to better your score. The art is on the simple side, and you’re only given an endless challenge, but that doesn’t take away from the finely crafted iOS arcade experience at hand.
Radical (Free, Universal) delivers fast paced fun that anyone can enjoy as long as they like a challenge. Also, enjoy the trailer below with great eighties inspiration that we wish was included in the game.
