Fieldrunners 2 is one of the best games available on the iPhone, and now it has come to the iPad as Fieldrunners 2 HD. For the most part it’s the same great game, but there are even brand new enhancements. The first thing you notice is that every single map seems to be originally designed for the iPad screen so that no pinching is required to see every element on screen in great clarity. The standard view is absolutely perfect to see the scale of all elements extremely well, and witness the great animations of the towers and killed Fieldrunners.
You can really appreciate all that went into crafting the game specifically for the bigger screen of the iPad. Another new addition to the iPad version is five new towers with the Cannonball, Zap, Sonic, Slow Link, and Machine Gun towers. They add extra inceptive to shoot for as you play across the 20 intricate levels through four different environments, and five unique game modes. The HD term doesn’t go to waste either with the absolutely gorgeous visuals for the new iPad that are some of the finest we’ve seen.
All that we said about the iPhone version applies here, and it’s taken up a notch as well. The game perfectly fits the iPad whether it’s the level design or the touch controls to drag and drop the towers. The iPad version also features iCloud game saves, though the iPhone version still needs an update, so for the time being you need to grab the Documents folder from the iPhone version using PhoneView or iExplorer. There’s also a couple of crashing bugs at first launch including a crash when a new iMessage comes in. These are just items to let you know about once you purchase the game, because it’s one of the best you can buy for the iPad. Subatomic Studios is also one of the best companies in fixing issues, and providing more content.
Fieldrunners 2 HD ($7.99, iPad) is a masterpiece for the iPhone, and even better on the iPad making it an absolute must buy. Read our full review of the iPhone version to get a better idea of the game if necessary. From our iPhone review,
