By Llamasoft

Minotaur Rescue is an oldschool arcade-style game for up to 4 players at once on iPad (2 players on iPhone).

Battle gravity, space rocks and marauding saucers as you fight to rescue endangered minotaurs and survive to gain the highest score.

Classic 8-bit graphics combine with modern effects, intense gameplay and finely tuned touch controls to provide a satisfying and exhilarating arcade gaming experience.

Minotaur Rescue is OpenFeint enabled.

Test your skills and challenge players worldwide on the online OpenFeint and Game Center leaderboards.

Just to round out your nostalgia trip, why not play one of the two extra bonus games "TANKS!" and "JETS!".

Created by Jeff Minter, one of the most experienced designers in this genre (creator of "Tempest 2000" and "Llamatron), Minotaur Rescue is the first in a planned series of games called the Minotaur Project.

The aim of the Minotaur Project is to create games in the style of old gaming systems but which are satisfying and fun to play for players both ancient and modern.

Oldschool style combined with thoroughly modern effects and controls designed for touch bring classic gaming up to date in the most engaging manner.

Try Minotaur Rescue, and see for yourself!

I feel the urge to write an Atari 2600 game now...:)

Great on the IPhone but made for the IPad. I played asteroids as a kid on the Atari 2600 (hours) and this brings back the memories as well as the obvious enhancements. Also I don't have to buy it twice for the IPad and IPhone. Plus no annoying f.....g in app purchases so what you see is what you get. It's a shame not as many people appreciate games like this, everybody wants style over a good blast. Keep producing these little games if you can afford to Mr Minter. Appman2010.

Awesome :)

Along with all of the other Llamasoft releases - Minotaur Rescue contains all the hallmarks of a cracking game. Easy to get in to, plenty of eye candy, great controls - extremely addictive and also rewarding ! For me, it doesnt get any better on iOS - I strongly encourage you to get them all. Legendary games from a legend - 5 stars.


This game is awesome! - I don't know about most people but I am totally board with 3D War Games - This is gaming at it's best, asteroids for the next gen, I love it, sooo addictive, and the effects are beautiful - another great YAK game - Powerup Powerup, this is what it's all about - Buy Buy Buy!!!!!
