Version 5 brings an all-new renderer, enhanced control customization and visual options!

Enjoy the solo campaign or multiplayer matches like never before!

Seventeen years have passed since you saved humanity from the Pfhor... Durandal, the only surviving artificial intelligence from the UESC Marathon, has kept you in stasis all this time. Once more, you are called on to save humanity. Leading a rag-tag band of humans and guided by an insane AI, you are the last hope to stave off the Pfhor invasion.

Welcome to Marathon 2: Durandal®, the second in the epic trilogy of first person shooter games that re-defined the genre. Experience the pulse-pounding action as you once again defend humanity from the alien Pfhor.

"Move fast, seize the initiative, wield superior firepower, dive into the melee, anticipate enemy movements, slaughter the defenseless, endure."

- 28 levels divided into nine chapters
- missions include exploration, puzzles and extermination
- smooth game play experience
- "Carnage is as easy as point and shoot."
- 8 unique weapons including:
.45 Magnum Mega Class Pistol
WSTE-M5 Combat Shotgun
M.75 Assault Rifle/Grenade Launcher
Zeus Class Fusion Pistol
TOZT-7 flamethrower
... and the devastating SPNKR-X17 rocket launcher

** NOTE: Invert aim is available through the Settings app, under "Durandal"

"Being naked in space stinks. Lucky for you, Mr. Security officer, you are dressed in active military uniform, complete with a Cyberhead helmet. Your Cyberhead device is your interface to your surrounding environment."

- battle against the aggressive Pfhor
- play the role of the cyborg security officer
- uncover the surprising secrets of the Pfhor and their allies

"Carnage is as easy as point and shoot. Different weapons are characterized with different dynamics. It is unwise, for example, to use the rocket launcher in close combat."

ALMOST there

UPDATE TO 5 STARS: Found the Invert toggle (in the app settings panel in iOS’s Setting app - thanks to the dev for his reply below). Very happy now! ORIGINAL COMMENT FOR POSTERITY: This is coming along nicely, Mr. Developer, but there is still one glaring omission. I literally cheered when I saw the update included MFi support (been waiting for this in these iOS Marathon games for literally years now), but my heart SUNK when I realized there seems to be no option for inverted controls. This makes it all but unplayable for those of us who have spent an entire gaming career on flight sticks and inverted controls. Add this one tweak, and this will be nearly perfect. Also, what the heck is that Master Chief button for? I can’t find any explanation in the game as to what it does.

Developer Response ,

You can invert the Y-axis under the app Settings, and Master Chief mode enables the various cheat options and level selection slider. Be sure to check out the Help screen for more details!

An excellent port of an excellent game

Maybe I’m being a Nostalgia Neddy here, but M2:D was my first video game, back on an old iMac, and it holds my standard for deep-as-you-want-to-get narrative gameplay. Aleph One has allowed me to rediscover all three Marathon games, and having them on my iPad has been a joy. Currently using a Nimbus controller, which has made the experience fresh again.

The few bugs I’ve seen, I’ve sent an email, and lo, they were fixed in the next update. The developers are doing Durandal’s work without complaining, as any good Mjolnir Mark IV cyborg should.

Updating to work with iOS 12 is something I would have paid for

This update is tremendous and allows me to enjoy Marathon on the go again with the most up-to-date enhancements.

Thanks Daniel for the update!

Also there seems to be a bug on the “Tip The Developers” page on each of the three games where the prices disappear before I can even tap them and I’m greeted with a thank you screen. Would love to tip you for all the work you’ve done!

Developer Response ,

This probably means you purchased one of the enhancements back in version 2, which are now included for free. Thanks for supporting us all those years ago!
