Robot Unicorn Attack 2

The unicorn is back. After a series of spinoffs and even a Samsung clone, Adult Swim's endless runner Robot Unicorn Attack has returned with a full, proper sequel. The core gameplay remains the same as in the original browser game that wasted so many of our hours back in 2010: the unicorn will run automatically, while you control the jump and a dash attack. But while it controls the same, the game has also been fleshed out with a number of new ideas. You can collect coins that can be used to customize your robotic steed with everything from a flaming tail to demon wings, and there are missions that you can complete to unlock new content and abilities. There are even enemies now in the form of giant, laser spewing golems.

The visuals have also received a much welcome makeover. The unicorn itself is much more detailed and fluid, and the painted backgrounds are so beautiful you might just find yourself distracted from the actual game — especially when a cyborg-unicorn-whale flies past. Unsurprisingly, the modern updates also include in-app purchases. Robot Unicorn Attack 2 is free to play, but you can buy in-game currency with real money, as well as spend some cash on licensed music. The original game was notable in part because of the sweet sounds of Erasure's "Always" in the background, but this time you'll have to pay $0.99 to hear them. You can also purchase "classic" hits from the likes of Corey Hart and Slade. The game is currently only available on iOS, but if it follows in the footsteps of the original, it probably won't be long before we see it on other platforms as well.
