Ratings and Reviews
It’s a good game. It passes the time. Only problem I have with it is that I wish I could keep upgrading something or there was more too it after you maxed out the upgrades but luckily I haven’t reached that point yet but am very close. My major problem I have with it though is the fact that there are these power ups in the game, like the mega or the bomb. It’s a box that flies sideways and has a letter on it telling you it’s ability. I think there’s a glitch with the R one. It stands for Rapid but it doesn’t do anything and actually seems to give you a de-buff for a bit. Rapid failure is what it means. You reload lots slower with this power up I don’t get it. All the other letters help you in one way or another but this one hurts you but it says Rapid as if it was going to increase something but it doesn’t. There is one called fast already which makes your bullets really fast but I don’t know what rapid does other than the opposite of it’s name. I feel like it has to be a glitch and hope it is because I hate it so much.
Reboot the Nuke
Like with any reimagined/updated arcade classic, there is a fine line that can be crossed where a new idea goes to far... or not far enough.
MC:RECHARGED is a nice simplistic, vector graphic inspired, reboot of the classic Atari game. Gone is the cumbersome trackball to aim with, just touch and the missiles auto target that location.
It’s actually brilliant game play wise, the new idea of the bunkers rebuilding themselves is great and the missile reload delay, also a nice touch. Meaning, no more limit to your ballistic stockpile... but the down side is once you get fully upgraded (which you can do rather quickly) that’s it. The game has no new missile types to offer or any other unlockables to strive for.
...and that VIRTUAL GAME CABINET feature, um, cool, for a minute.
For the most part, it plays great but there’s no need to purchase the unlimited plays when it’s soo easy to play and get all the upgrades for free. I hope more updates to the game are in store to add more replay value, but for free this game is a literal blast!!
One of the best mobile games!
Addictive simple yet brilliant gameplay. Quick games, perfect for the medium. As far as being an updated arcade classic it's just right, with the nice flourish of the vector graphic aesthetic (which the original arcade game was not but that's okay here) refined even more strikingly. This game works particularly well by touch and actually improves upon the original's controls. It's right up there with Atari's Asteroids mobile remake.
While not the case for console games, the best arcade games are exceedingly simple and that's where their elusive brilliance lies. Mobile is similar, as the platform is not conducive to longer or more complex play.
