App Review: Ragdoll Blaster 2 for iPhone by Backflip Studios
One of our favorite physics game for the iPhone is Ragdoll Blaster where you use a canon to launch ragdolls to hit a target. The sequel, Ragdoll Blaster 2, builds on the puzzles of the first iteration with some significant improvements in many areas that make it a worthwhile sequel. Since Ragdoll Blaster 2 has been in the top 100 for a few weeks now chances are you’re already playing it. However, if not then this review is for you.
The first thing you will notice with Ragdoll Blaster 2 is that the graphics have been significantly improved over the line-drawn style of the first version. The game now has very polished and very good graphics that shows that the Ragdoll Blaster franchise is well alive and maturing.
The other major improvement in RB2 is the new enhancements to the puzzles. Yes, RB2 has a bunch of new puzzles, but what I mean by enhancements is that the developers have added levers and buttons and other physical objects into the mix. Pushing buttons or moving levers will alter the puzzle in some way, usually making it possible to complete.
We’ve been playing Ragdoll Blaster 2 for a few weeks now and have been really enjoying it. I have a 6 year old that loves the first version and now I can’t get him to put down this version. However, don’t be fooled, Ragdoll Blaster 2 isn’t just for kids, it’s for everyone and that’s one of the big reasons we really like this game. The game is almost universal in it’s target audience which makes it an easy buy. RB2 is also addicting for all ages with great puzzles that continue to advance and build upon the first version.
What we liked: Great, improved graphics over v.1, new puzzles and objects make it a great sequel.
What we didn’t like: Nothing comes to mind.
