(From The Attic is a way for us to bring new life to older games. With so many games releasing on the App Store on a daily basis, it’s easy to overlook a game or two or forget about a game you once loved, but never finished. These articles can come as regular reviews, but for the most part, they are just a way for us to talk about our experiences with an older game and hopefully bring some new attention to it.)
It’s been awhile since I’ve dug up in the iOS Attic for old games. It’s been tough trying to fit everything in after SNAPPZILLA 2.0 went live, but I’m happy to say that From The Attic is back! It’ll be a little different though. I’m going to keep these articles short and sweet now. I’ll try to keep them at a SNAPPy paragraph or two and just give you the good stuff. FTA will more or less be a reminder that these games are still out there on the App Store and are still just as good as they ever were!
To start things off, I’ve dug up a true iOS classic out of the attic. Particle Mace by Andy Wallace!
Partial Mace is a physics based arcade game that released back in the beginning of 2015. (2015 is not that long ago, but it’s “old” by App Store standards.)
It’s hard to describe Particle Mace. You basically control a spaceship that has “particles” connected to it via strings (you know, like a mace) and you are trying to defend yourself from enemy ships and asteroids in a single playing area. One hit and it’s game over. Everything is controlled by one thumb in portrait mode which makes this game that much better for quick play sessions. There’s 3 different endless modes, 150 missions, and 9 different ships to unlock. Each ship reacts differently, which changes up the game entirely.
Like I mentioned earlier, Particle Mace is a true iOS classic. It was just updated at the beginning of 2018 to play on iOS 11. So, there’s no reason why this game shouldn’t be dusted off and at put one everyone’s devices after reading this.
