App description: TOP TEN "free" App!

Touch Arcade says Major Mayhem's 2.0 update is "ridiculously huge...almost feels like a completely new game!"

One of the best rail shooters on the App Store! -IGN 8.5/10
"It's funny, fast, violent, and leaves you wanting more." -PocketGamer Silver Medal
"I got points for Chicken Combos." -AppSafari 4.5/5

Meet the newest recruit in the Adult Swim Games army: Major Mayhem. He's got an itchy trigger finger, some scratchy stubble, and a fondness for shooting dudes in the face. Run and gun your way through gorgeous 3D environments as you embark on a mission to rescue your kidnapped girlfriend from the Forces of Evil. Guns, grenades and an assortment of other tools of destruction are at your disposal, and you'll need every last one of 'em. So what are you waiting for, Major Mayhem? The future of the Free World -- and your love life -- hangs in the balance.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
>> "This is slaughter done right, with enormous weaponry and a huge sense of fun." -PocketGamer

>> "Major Mayhem is one of the best rail shooters on the App Store." -IGN
>> "Bring[s] back memories of such games as Lethal Enforcers and Virtua Cop, or even more recent fare such as the Resident Evil Chronicles games for the Wii, though without being quite as serious as any of those." -Slide to Play

I picked this up this morning and I'm enjoying it, it's just a tap to shoot style gun range game. Where your character moves along then stops behind some cover, you shoot all the bad guys then he moves on, it slowly intruduces run and gun and even jumping sections. I'm a bit biased as I love the art style that adult swim have been putting out recently but for 69p it's a bargain.

It's actually not that different from Epoch . It also reminds me Time Crisis (but a lot more fun for me at least). Gameplay maybe simple, but the whole thing is so darned polished that it can't help but bring a smile to your face.

I like the game, but why do devs keep supporting Game Center and only adding leaderboards? Really hate buying a game with GC, only to find out it is leaderboards only. Achievements increase the replay more IMO. Leaderboards are useless, for me anyway. Seems like they are always glitched with bogus scores making it no fun trying to compete...

=oP

that's funny... I'm one for leaderboards instead of Achievements... though there are a few games that I've played through enough to snag all of them for... it generally isn't what I aim for when playing games. But competing for high-scores on my GC friends list... oh yeah buddy. =oP

But I do know that achievements add more to the replay value, especially when they're obscure... so I completely agree with you... =o/

The file size is pretty small, yet to me the graphics pop more than many larger games. Once the different weapons come into play, it's even more fun.
