What do you get when you cross a pig, a crashed starship and a planet that is definitely out to get you? It’s not a joke – it’s the premise of brilliant one-touch arcade game sequel Bacon Escape 2.
You will need all of your wits about you as you help your porcine protagonist through outwardly simple but fiendishly tricky tracks smothered in vicious spikes and deadly lasers, in your quest to repair your spaceship and get away from the, frankly, murderous landscape.
The simplicity of the controls mean that anyone can quickly pick up the game and quest for the stars you need to resurrect your ship. Simply tap or hold the screen to spin sections of track, turn off traps, turn on blowers and perfectly time trampoline sections.
The main character is a major draw, but this time you can also play as one of a host of friends. And with plenty of playable characters, costumes and cars to unlock, your biggest challenge might just be deciding who to choose and what outfit goes with your funky new ride.
Things move at a ‘crackling’ pace, and we guarantee that there will be passages of play that will have even the most experienced gamer wondering why they didn’t spot that section of crumbling track early enough to save their bacon.
If you enjoyed the original, or are just looking for a perfect game for when you only have one hand to play, we reckon this is a title that will hog your attention.
