Re-Mission 2: Nanobot’s Revenge Review
Occasionally I’ll stumble across an Android game that supports a good cause, carries a message, or serves a purpose aside from simply playing a game. HopeLab is a developer out to make a difference by improving people’s health and well-being through technology. They partnered up with Cigna for their first Android release, Re-Mission 2: Nanobot’s Revenge. It’s a game aimed to help kids with cancer feel a little bit better by letting them blast those nasty cancer cells away, and it’s quite a bit of fun to boot.
Re-Mission 2: Nanobot’s Revenge lets you take control of a cancer fighting robot that’s trying to keep the forces of the evil Nuclear Tyrant at bay. Each level in the game is represented by an area of the body like the brain, lungs, and bloodstream. You’ll start out in the Lungs and beat back cancer in each of the areas until everything is in remission, and the Nuclear Tyrant is defeated.
The gameplay is pretty straightforward as you simply need to select a power and tap the screen to attack in an attempt to destroy all the cancerous creatures on the screen. Your enemies file in from both sides of while attempting to build a tumor tower of sorts. If they reach the top you’ll need to start again, and if you clear the level you’ll receive a new power. Each power has three levels as well so you’ll want to mix and match to level them all up and receive the ultimate version.
As for your foes… they’re vile creatures, and they do get tougher as the game progresses. Re-Mission 2: Nanobot’s Revenge throws a new enemy at you after each level to keep things fresh, and each is a little nastier than the last. You definitely won’t mind blasting them to bits. By the numbers, Re-Mission 2 has 12 different areas to conquer, and there’s a 3 Minute Battle Mode that unlocks once you put the Nuclear Tyrant into remission. There are also 12 achievements that double as coins for extra powers.
Re-Mission 2: Nanobot’s Revenge is a slick little game that’s quite a bit of fun, and perfect for kids. There are no ads and no in-app purchases whatsoever which you have to appreciate considering the game is free. It’s very easy to pick up and play, and the difficulty level is ideal for younger gamers… it can even give older gamers a fit when the tumor tower gets too high. Most importantly, it serves as a means to let kids with cancer fight back in a way of their own. Great job by HopeLab and I look forward to seeing what else they have in store. If you want to give it a go, you can pick up Re-Mission 2: Nanobot’s Revenge for free on Google Play and the App Store.
