IPad game of the week: Neonimo ($ 2.99 / £ 2.99 / AU $ 4.49)
Neonimo is a real-time strategy game between two players – humans, or you and your iPad – that allows you to build a path to your opponent's base using Tetris coins.
It may sound easy, but of course things are not that simple. There are all kinds of strategic decisions about how to use your progressive replenishment resources, where to place special coins, and whether your opponent will hit you with the iPad for canceling their incredible journey within seconds of victory.
These are intense and fast things – the games are over in a matter of minutes – but whether you participate in a standard head-to-head or try your luck against the AI in dungeon mode, where you get new equipment after each victory, this is a superb and unique rotation on the RTS genre.
