Use Your Teleporter To Rescue Clueless Monsters In Monster Meltdown
A couple of days ago, the Kickstarter campaign for the strategy game Death Inc. ended. Unfortunately, it ended unsuccessfully. But its developer, Ambient Studios, is optimistic that despite its crowd-funding failure, Death Inc. will eventually see the light of day. And guess what. You can contribute toward ensuring that it does by supporting Ambient Studios with its new iOS game, which was released just yesterday. The new game is called Monster Meltdown and boy, does it look good. So good, in fact, that Apple has featured it as this week's Editors' Choice in the App Store. Indeed, Monster Meltdown sports graphics that are at once charmingly antiquated and beautifully polished. Of course, its gorgeous graphics would be all for naught if they weren't rendered in service of good gameplay. Thankfully, they are. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. As described in the game's trailer above, Monster Meltdown has you playing as Yuri, a janitor equipped with a personal teleporter. Yuri works in a lab where monsters have somehow escaped. Now, you have to rescue them by using your tap-activated teleporter to put yourself in harm's way (yup) and trading places with them. By doing so, you can lead them to safety — without their knowledge, apparently, as these monsters are of the scary yet stupid sort. Optimized for iPad 2, third- and fourth-generation iPad, and iPad mini, Monster Meltdown is available now in the App Store for $1.99. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
