The Thursday Find - Atomine

Hello there. It's Thursday. Let's cut to the chase here. We all know what happens on Thursday. It's time for the Thursday find. So I've gone out and found something for you, and now I'm writing it down for you to read. No messing about, no long intros. Just smoking hot content.

You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download the game from that there App Store. And if you've got some suggestions for your own find, even though it won't be as good as mine, chuck them in the comments at the bottom of the page. Harry out.


Atomine is a twin-stick shooter with attitude. It's got a unique visual style that makes it stand out from the rest of the top-down blasters that make up the genre on the App Store. It's a wonderfully glitchy, cyberpunk game that's full of tight and taut shooting.

When you first load it up you're not even sure what sort of game it's going to be. But then the blasting kicks in and while things might look a little strange, you're instantly at home in the gorgeous chaos.

A stick on the left of the screen moves you around, a stick on the right lets you fire. It's as simple as that. Each level there are a number of critters you need to blast into digital bits. Clear them and you'll move on to the next challenge.

There's more depth here than that though. You can have different load-outs of weaponry, and as you play you're going to find other little quirks that are going to keep you interesting.

This is the sort of game that opens up the more you play it. It's violent and unique, and it adds more and more bad guys for you to butcher as you push on through its well-paced and brilliantly designed levels.

If you're looking for a new shooter that struts around with its head cocked at the rest of the genre, then you should definitely pick this up sooner rather than later.
