Remember the days of the 1990’s, when arcade games were still the thrill of the teenage consumer market? As you got a bit older, you didn’t lose the love for the game, but the companies around lost the love for the games and therefore made them almost all the way obsolete. Well, that doesn’t mean they are obsolete, and can now even be accessed through the iPad2, with a new app offering the X-Men app, which is – yes, arcade lovers – just like the arcade game of the ‘90’s.
So, of course teens and the younger users of the iPad2, as well as those that were never really into arcade games, or just missed the era, will not be too excited, but once they see the awesome graphics, they may feel that they missed out on an important period of time, when games were so much more challenging, and offered so much more action and great real-feel excitement.
Those of you who are nostalgic and remember the 1990’s as a decade of the comic book Gods, this game app is definitely a hot ticket, which is sure to get you a bit more into iPad2’s gaming features, with the X-Men app, which was released on the 2nd of June, 2011, acting as a great throwback that offers the great additions of today’s styles and graphics as well – however, still does not change a thing. In fact, everything is exactly the same – with a brighter more enhanced display.
You also get the same story line you enjoyed during the ‘90’s, which is something that can really bring you back in time – except this time you are able to skip through those annoying explanations and credits to get straight to play, which is a feature that you can appreciate the times of today for.
Choose the hero that you remember so well and enjoyed playing as so much in the past and take the streets in the straight line play that allows you to conquer your enemies in the most basic, yet exciting way possible. After all, who doesn’t miss being able to walk straight through a whole game and still kill all of your enemies like the hero you are?
You are offered two options for play: solo or multiplayer, which is great for those who have a few friends that have an iPad as well – however, it is a quirk of the game that did let down gamers of today who would rather the online global play that is offered with most game apps of today. However, if you want to keep it a classic, you just have to get out the wires and become more in the times, which were all about playing together in each other’s face – the times before webcams and virtual worlds.
The 1990’s definitely left us with a great deal of memories, some of which are returning to bring a bit of pleasure to our use of the iPad and iPad2 tablets of today’s electronic era, with the X-Men game app offering the perfect nostalgia game for those who loved and miss the ‘90’s.
