RRP: 69p
Rating: 4/5

Arkedo Studios, the makers of the console hit Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, have returned with a brand new game, Hell Yeah! Pocket Inferno, that sees Ash the prince of hell return in this hot-headed run and gun thrill ride specifically designed for the touchscreen platform.

Another in the long line of side-scrolling “endless-runner” type games Hell Yeah! Pocket Inferno sees you ride the deadly jetpack scooter and defeat over 30 ugly monsters in 50 unique and colourful levels… Yes, despite using the same mechanics as the typical endless runner games on available on iOS and Android this game sees you complete missions within set levels – such as collect 50 gold, kill 6 bad guys etc. It’s just as addictive as an endless runner, but at least this time you can take a breather between levels…

Collecting gold which unlocks 50 new masks and 15 jetpack skins to, like its big-brother game on the PS3, customise your character and become the rabbit pimp of all pimps. Plus, if you search far and wide you can find the Doom token hidden within each level that unlocks secret areas packed with awesome bonuses!

Graphically Hell Yeah! Pocket Inferno looks just as good as it’s PS3 counterpart, with the same ridiculous attention to detail to Ash and his jetpack, as well as the games rogues gallery. As for playing the game, this is definitely a simplified version of the original – but that’s not a bad thing. Pairing the game down into smaller, more straight forward levels works perfectly on the iPad and iPhone and should you decide to download the game you’ll definite while away a few hours furiously trying to 100% every level like I did!

Hell Yeah! Pocket Inferno is available on the App Store now.
