From the creator of the critically acclaimed iOS game Ms. Particle-Man comes the eagerly anticipated and enigmatically titled sequel, MR. PARTICLE-MAN.
Remember the fun, fast-paced, and brutally difficult classic arcade gameplay from Ms. Particle-Man? No? Well, Entertainment Weekly called the game "a snappy delight that takes you back to a bygone era when games weren't trying to be literary or cinematic." Ring any bells yet? The Verge raved that it was "challenging, unforgiving, and quite satisfying." The Onion AV Club gave the game an A rating, saying that the game "creates a rich world with just a few pixel strokes." On the flip side, some dude on iTunes said that it "gets tiring and stops being fun," but what does he know?
Mr. Particle-Man massively expands on the original winning formula with all new levels, new challenges, and new power-ups. You control the eponymous little hero as he bounces around like a mustachioed pinball, avoiding deadly obstacles, dashing past enemies, and doing battle with challenging bosses. The deceptively simple core gameplay mechanics are explored in increasingly creative and complex ways across more than 100 colorful levels. There's a surprising amount of depth in this humble little package.

Ratings and Reviews
A pleasant surprise
As I am typically more of a "wave" kind of person, I downloaded this game thinking that it's pro-particle agenda would turn me off. Imagine my surprise as this game quickly captured both my mind and my imagination.
I still don't believe that particles are always the way to go, but this EXTREMELY entertaining game has certainly caused me to reevaluate my universal condemnation of them.
Thanks, PicoBots! I look forward to your future, perhaps more wave-forward games.
Perfect touch screen arcade game
Playing this game is great fun regardless of whether you have any nostalgia for old games or not. The physics and the controls are brilliant, and work perfectly with touch controls. Each level is pretty quick to complete, so it's great for mobile gaming. It gets difficult, but always feels fair. And the visuals and music do great job of evoking old 8 bit DOS and NES games.
I thought it would be a good game based on the reviews...I was mistaken. The only reason I'm playing it is because I payed money for it. I thought it would least have real controls but I guess that's too much. There's nothing appealing about this game in the slightest, I say it's a waste of money and time.
