App description: Legendary Beast meets Legendary Game in Minotron: 2112

In 1991 Llamasoft released LLAMATRON: 2112, one of the most popular games ever on the Atari ST and Amiga, considered by many to be an all-time classic.

Today, 20 years later, the Minotaur Project brings you a modern update to that legendary game, featuring a legendary beast - the Minotaur.

Faster, smoother, and in every way better than the original, MINOTRON: 2112 brings you 100 levels of intense, fun and humorous arena shooting action, laced with shattering explosions and spectacular effects.

Four game modes offer fun and challenge to players of every level, from novice to hardcore, on iPad or iPhone.

Minotron: 2112 is OpenFeint enabled, and achievements and leaderboards are maintained in both OpenFeint and GameCenter. Get your beast on and challenge for the highest score!

With the release of Minotron: 2112 Llamasoft emphatically reaffirms the Minotaur Project's status as THE place to go to for great controls, excellent fun, and stone cold classic arcade action.

Minotaur Project #1: Minotaur Rescue.

Minotaur Project #2: Minotron.

Many more to come! Trust the Minotaur for the best arcade action on iOS.

MINOTAUR 4 LIFE!

Awesome! Go Jeff Minter!

And you old gen hardware owners - stop your whining. Technology marches on. If you can't afford newer stuff, then just suck it up and save your pennies until you can.

A great week, but an expensive one nevertheless!

Game Impressions

I've been taken back to the hey days of the Amiga with this and Speedball 2 released in such rapid succession!

While the graphics are true to their retro origin of Llamatron, I think some of these game modes are all new to Minotron.

I just played a couple of games of "Simplified" and thought it was fun allowing the AI to control my aiming and firing (at times it felt a bit odd as it wasn't always clear if we were both focused on priorities).

A great port chock-a-block full of classic sound samples!

I also love how each level throws in a new twist making it so much more than a mere half-assed Robotron clone.
