Foursaken Media barely misses a beat on Bug Heroes 2. It takes 2011’s hit tower defense/dual-stick shooter/real-time strategy hybrid and pumps out a cool, fun, great-looking, and fast-paced sequel that ups the ante on just about everything (but sadly marginalizes the story of feuding bugs). Strategic nuances mix brilliantly here with arcade-style action, and the mission, skirmish, and endless modes alike all offer plenty of variety in the flow of play — though not in terms of scenery, as only three maps are included.
Last week was a little quiet for App Store releases, but consider this a fine bounce-back, thanks to very alluring originals like Tengami, Oquonie, and Second Chance Heroes, along with the anticipated Bug Heroes 2. We’ve already got reviews of a couple of these titles up, but be sure to keep an eye out for more in the coming days, and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
