You know who makes awesome arcade shooters? RadianGames. Games like Ballistic SE, Inferno+ and Fireball SE have found success on the App Store, giving players copious doses of particle effects, bullets and enemies. Their latest effort is called JoyJoy, a game previously released on Xbox Live Indie Games several years back, but revamped for a mobile release. It follows in the same tradition of Radian's previous shooters, and as the developer explains of his own game, "JoyJoy is a colorful and challenging twin-stick shooter with lots of upgrades, weapons, difficulty levels, and explosions." I'm totally on board. Here's a trailer for JoyJoy.

If that trailer got your blood pumping, then here's some good news: You won't have to wait long for JoyJoy as it's set to launch this week on May 15th at a price of $1.99. Like other RadanGames games, JoyJoy will feature solid virtual dual-stick controls, but if you're more of a physical controls type of gamer it will also support iOS 7 MFi controllers. I love RadanGames so I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on JoyJoy later this week. Also, for some discussion hit up the forum thread for JoyJoy.

    "RadianGames games, JoyJoy"
    Yup, got some dual duality goin' down.

    Still remember that "500% Sale" or whatever the value in whatever the phrasing of the XBLIG price hike. Definitely nabbed the whole set, even though I never owned an X360 myself.

    Can't wait. Nobody does the twin sticks better than Radian. Instabuy! Don't pass on this.

    Looks okay going to wait for TA review seems too similar to their earlier game.
