App description: The sequel to the much acclaimed Meganoid !

- "Game of the week" nomination Toucharcade
- "Game of the week" nomination Pocketgamer
- " Meganoid 2 turns up the heat and throws you in to a bare-bones series of white-knuckle platforming challenges" - Appspy
- "Definitely a must have for any old-school gamer or a fan of the platformer." - Paranerds


Meganoid 2 continues the brutal platform gaming that all you guys loved in the first part. Again: this game is not easy! You will need to bring your best game skills to complete the short but hard levels.

Meganoid gets most of its inspiration from 80s and 90s games.

** THIS GAME IS NOT EASY!

Each challenging level can be completed within a few seconds of gaming, making the pace of the game pretty fast, but many levels require multiply tries to complete. New levels will be added in updates - So tell your friends to download this game now!

** GAME PLAY!

- complete a level to earn a level star
- complete the level within the time limit to earn the time-trophy
- find the (hidden) treasure in evera level to earn the treasure-trophy

** GAME STYLE

Meganoid 2 comes in full 8bit retro pixelart style, complete with chiptune and sound effects, we love this style, and it fits the genre! The game is set in an adventurous environment with tombs, temples, skulls, arrows, traps, boulders, snakes and bats!

orangepascal's comments:
Meganoid 2 is NOW live on the app store!

In his younger days, Grandpa meganoid was an adventurer, which is just a great excuse for us to grab the best ideas from Indiana Jones, Tombraider and even the Librarian movies, and throw them all at you in an unfair way just to see if you can survive!

With over a million gamers worldwide, the original Meganoid might have been the cause for an increase of smashed phones, swearing, institutionalising and a couple of other big words.

So we figured we could create Meganoid 2 and make it just as DAMN HARD!

Meganoid2 comes with 60 levels, and we plan to add more levels in the coming updates!


! warning, THIS GAME IS HARD but fair! if you don’t like it, go shoot birds at pigs, run in endless temples or cut fruit in half !

Yeah, it's also weird that you can die an infinite amount of times without getting a game over. =o/

But so far... LOVING IT!!

The little subtitle hints for all the hazards... The hidden items...

One little thing

-- when running, and changing direction, it's not as quick as it is in Meganoid 1. It does feel more realistic, needing that little bit of ground to actually slow down before changing direction, and don't know if it's intentional, but it's just kinda strange ATM. I'm sure I'll get use to it, and eventually prefer it... Just wanted to let others know first impressions.

Anyway... So far, it's fantastic. I hope GC is added, even if leaderboards aren't added because of the infinite life thing, but achievements would be awesome. THANK YOU ORANGEPIXEL!!!! You guys friggin rock

Either that or use your eyes and look for the clues.

This looks like more fun than Super Drill Panic and the original Meganoid combined. Which is what this is.

Can't wait to play it tonight!

I immediately thought the same thing when I saw the trailer. This is a terrific surprise! Orangepixel is among my favorite game developers, consistently releasing excellent titles in my favorite genre - glorious retro pixels and chiptunes! I am eagerly looking forward to the new game.
