One of the best mobile platformers to hit iOS and Android in recent years has sprung a sequel. Cordy 2 was released this past week for both Apple and Google’s mobile platforms, and it is a surprisingly fun and challenging experience.
The game gives you control of the titular character as you run, jump and zap your way through colourful 3D environments on a 2D plane. The game uses on-screen controls but unlike many mobile platformers, developers SilverTree Media have paid lots of attention to the inertial movement of Cordy, and the game feels lively and fluid as a result. Aside from his jump, Cordy is able to perform specific moves on a contextual basis; an icon will appear on the right side of the screen only when needed, saving precious space for the gorgeous artwork.
The game runs at a nice 60fps clip on modern iOS and Android devices, and looks fantastic on the big screen. Though it may cost a bit much for the average mobile gamer, it’s a huge game with 48 levels spanning three worlds.
