It's hard not to overstate how excellent PewPew 2 by Jean-Francois Geyelin is, but I'll try not to gush too much. Where so many twin-stick shooters are content with throwing tonnes of enemies at you with varied AI to mix up the difficulty, PewPew 2 builds on the original by challenging your dexterity, accuracy and puzzle solving skills with levels that are brimming with great design and varied gameplay.

Much like any twin-stick shooter you'll be faced with one stick that controls your movement while the other fires your weapons in the pushed direction. The controls are extremely sensitive and make it easy to dance around with confidence and it's a good thing you can because you'll find yourself playing levels and endless matches that will test the limits of your agility.

PewPew 2's graphics have undergone a small upgrade and features new detailed vector designs and a few more particle effects that amazingly still runs at a rock solid 60 frames per second for flawlessly smooth visuals. The electronic music track and beats will get you pumped up for some amazing fights, but iTunes is supported if you're after a change of pace.

Perhaps one of the best features of PewPew 2 is the ability to view replays of high-scoring players to watch how the experts manage to make it all the way to the gold-level on the game's (up to) six unlockable endless modes. PewPew 2 is easily recommended as a must buy for any iDevice owner and at its current price you'd almost be mad not to give it a go!
