Space Grunts 2, a sequel to the acclaimed roguelike title Space Grunts from developer Orangepixel, was released last month, but it was only for iOS at the time. If you have an Android device instead and have been feeling a little bit left out, then you'll probably be glad to know that the game is now available for pre-registration on Google Play. No exact release date for Android is confirmed at the moment, however. All we know so far is that the game is “coming soon”.

In case you have not been following our previous coverage on this one, Space Grunts 2 is a different game compared to its predecessor. More specifically, it has ditched the turn-based battles in favor of deck-building instead. This adds a whole new level of depth to the planning process as previously you only had to choose between 3 weapons and everything else was mainly about choosing the appropriate moves.

This sequel has added in deck-building elements

With a constantly-evolving deck to build throughout the game, you’ll have more options in every encounter. Some cards will provide AoE damage to help you deal with several foes at the same time, while others can offer defensive stats to make incoming blows less devastating.

Aside from that, there are cards whose function is simply to create noise to distract enemies or lure them to a certain location, allowing you to ambush them or simply sneak past them.

The game also rewards you for exploring every nook and cranny of its levels instead of just rushing straight to the exit. The numerous secret paths hidden around the corners might contain rare cards that will increase the power of your deck by a large margin.

Space Grunts 2 is now up for pre-registration on Google Play with the release date expected to be “soon”. Alternatively, the game is already available for iOS users as a premium title priced at £3.99 (Rs 375).
