VG Review: Fieldrunners 2


 By Megan Gotch

In it’s first 24 hours Fieldrunners 2 shot to the #2 spot on the Apple app store, was featured as their Editor’s Choice on the “What’s Hot” page and was #11 on their top grossing chart.  This tower defense game is back in a BIG way!

Expanding on the original Fieldrunners, Fieldrunners 2 {FR2} has added more maps, more towers, and four unique worlds to unlock and travel through.  At the price of $2.99 you get so much more than the previous edition.  Play through the worlds {Hometown, Grasslands, Drylands & Lavaflow} to unlock the new towers and new maps.  New towers include oil tower, hive tower, flamethrower and many more that you can unlock through game play.  I am loving the hive and oil tower, they knock out your enemies super fast, and as you rack up the dollars by defeating your enemies, you can upgrade your towers to beat them even faster!  The introduction of a world map will make you want to play this game over and over again until all your victory flags are flying!

With your addiction now setting in, the more you destroy, the more cards you can collect.  These cards give you prizes which, in turn, give you more ways to destroy your enemies.  It is a never ending loop!

I am loving all the new maps and the fact that each one is unique!  Some are a free for all and others have the enemies running a set course.  I have been playing on casual and beating my way easily through each level.  But once you get the hang of casual mode, it is time to move up to “tough”.  Not an easy thing to do!  I can’t imagine what “insane” mode is like!  With these three different modes to choose from, you will never want to surrender!

While you are racking up points and defeating levels, you cannot fail to notice the beautiful art and animations throughout the game.  With my new iPhone 4s, the art of FR2 is crystal clear and the animations are smooth and life like.  As the spectacular art continues, FR2 takes you through a story of how your enemies came to be, just another way FR2 draws you in.

I am extremely proud to know one of the minds behind this game, and even though I’m not a BIG gamer myself, this game has made me WANT to play it and to spread the word!
