Golden Axe 2 is showing its age a little now at nearly 20 years but it’s still fun. If you’ve never played the title before then $3 might feel a little steep for only a few hours of fun, but if you’ve been here before, you’ll just be so pleased that your memories weren’t just rose tinted, they were the truth. It’s a retro classic you’ll be pleased to have in your collection.
Sega's released a variety of 16-bit Genesis games on the App Store, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Streets of Rage 2 and the original Golden Axe. Now comes the sequel, aptly titled Golden Axe 2. Despite its short length, this classic offers a few hours of 2D hack and slash fun.
Golden Axe II has already been a part of many greatest hits compilations, and you could argue the title hasn't aged well. But I think it suits the mobile platform just fine. The simple controls work well on the virtual D-pad (though obviously it's nicer on an iPad than on the more crowded iPhone or iPod Touch), especially since you won't be expected to do much more than point your warrior towards enemies and send them to a 16-bit oblivion. Multiplayer will be the main draw, just don't expect counts less hours of gaming. A short trip down memory lane while on the go should suffice.
