Epic Combo is back with Epic Combo Redux and comes with more zany turtle smashing action! The turtle smashing business is big, how fast can you make a million dollars!? I did it in 10 minutes, think you can beat me?
Anyway, if you didn't play the original Epic Combo, Epic Combo Redux is pretty much the same game but with a new coat of polish and a few extra items. But basically you get money from smashing turtles and making combos. A combo is made as long as a turtle is still in the air hitting things. These things range from bumpers a la Super Smash Brothers to saw blades to machine gun turrets to laser beams. Combos earn you money which you can spend on buying more of these diabolical turtle hating machines, thereby earning you more money. There really is no end goal it's all just smashing turtles and earning money. It's a fun time waster but after around 10 minutes you will be asking yourself, "Why am I playing this game again?".
Of course this seems to be John's forte, making insanely zany and addicting flash games that get you sucked in but leaving you wondering why. Epic Combo Redux is the same way and just carries over this idea from the original Epic Combo. It's a shame that all that really is different in Redux is a large amount of fresh polish and a few new machines to keep the turtle smashing going. There is a few achievements in place but I think combining the ideas in the Achievement Unlocked Series with the addicting action packed turtle smashing gameplay in Epic Combo Redux would make for an amazing game. Overall though if you loved the original Epic Combo you will of course love Epic Combo Redux.
