Back in 2015, developer Orangepixel wanted to create a roguelike dungeon crawler that had all the tactics and strategy of a turn-based game but played with the fast-pace of a real-time game. Thus Space Grunts was born in early 2016 and accomplished this task beautifully. Then last year Orangepixel wanted to revisit the Space Grunts series with a sequel, but introduce some deck-building mechanics into the mix while still keeping the pace fast and furious. From these desires Space Grunts 2 ($2.99) was born and launched on iOS in early December, and again the blend of different mechanics jelled into a unique and entertaining experience.
While all (or, pretty much all?) Orangepixel games are also available on Android, Space Grunts 2 launched on iOS right at that hectic holiday time of year, and so to avoid launching an Android version of the game into the holiday rush only to be forgotten, the developer held back the Android release until… today! Space Grunts 2 is now available for Android on the Google Play Store, and it’ll set you back $3.99 just like its iOS counterpart. It’s also probably worth mentioning that the game is available on Steam Early Access if playing on desktop is more your speed. Whatever platform you choose, Space Grunts 2 is a winner, and you can find plenty of player comments as well as Orangepixel chatting it up in the thread in our forums.
