One of my all-time favorite platformers on ANY gaming system is Physmo’s Mos Speedrun ($0.99). Launched in 2011, its focus on speedrunning levels and masterful touch controls had me playing each of its levels dozens if not hundreds of times over and over, hoping to find new routes and techniques that would let me shave just that little bit of time off my final score. I was obsessed, and I loved it. So it should be no surprise that when Physmo began teasing Mos Speedrun 2 with screen shots in June of last year, I was pretty excited. Things were relatively quiet for a while after that, until this past January when we got a proper look at Mos Speedrun 2 with an excellent gameplay trailer. Well, things have been a bit quiet again since then, but now we’ve got ourselves another new look at Mos Speedrun 2 thanks to this new trailer.
As you can see, Mos Speedrun 2 is definitely a more complex affair than the first game. There are tons of new hazards like moving platforms and jelly you can swim through, and Mos has herself some new abilities too like wall jumping and swinging on ropes. It sounds really awesome, and there are lots of additional new details about the game listed in a new developer blog Physmo has going, so be sure to check that out. It sounds like they have a lot of interesting ideas for this sequel. Mos Speedrun 2 should be wrapped up in the next few months so we’ll be keeping tabs on it for sure.
