Robot Unicorn Attack's original web iteration was a moderately funny joke that morphed into an amazingly addictive game, and then morphed into a similarly insanity-fueling mobile game.

Building on the success of the original, Adult Swim Games has made Robot Unicorn Attack 2, which just recently made its Android debut and, happily, seems much more stable and playable than the buggy original.

Rather than trying to explain the sheer madness of RUA 2, we'll defer to Adult Swim's promotional trailer.

Basically, there are hoops, monsters, space whales, and giant star crystals, along with a small army of different unicorns, and an achievement system that actually gives players some motivation to play again later. Oh, and environments that are wildly styled and just distracting enough to sweep you off your hooves every once in a while.

In short, fans of the original will definitely not be disappointed.

If you liked the old RUA, you'll love RUA 2. Even if you didn't the game is free, so it's definitely worth checking out. Be careful though, it only takes one or two rounds to get hooked.

    • HellG

      I didn't know that "unicorns" were trademarked by adult swim games....

      • Gregory Cabral

        I didn't say they were trademarked, just said that that's where aokp got the concept of their unicorn logo

        • MasterMuffin

          They say on their web page that they're just obsessed with unicorns, I think they didn't take the icons from RUA...

          • Gregory Cabral

            Once again, didn't say they took the icon from RUA, just saying thats where they may have gotten the CONCEPT for it.

    Good news that it's free this time. Pity there's no free option for the original.

    • Joshua Hill

      I've played it and I'm glad I never paid for the original despite the haters :P

  • Mike Larrabee

    Got to pay a dollar for Erasure's Always song this time. Well worth it. They also have the Neverending Story song. So good.

    Can't believe or understand how popular this game is

  • GraveUypo

    to me it isn't free. it's only a demo until you buy the classic always bgm. but it's worth it :P

    on a side note, its hilarious how the inferno team has more than twice as many people as the rainbow team.
