What you need to know
- JoyJoy is available via GameClub.
- The twin-stick shooter was huge back in 2014.
- It's as fun as ever.
If you're a fan of twin-stick shooters you're probably very aware of JoyJoy. It was big on the App Store back in 2014 but as with so many games from that era, it went away. But developer Luke Schneider of Radiangames has allowed the folks at GameClub to bring it back.
We've spoken about GameClub and why it's so awesome before, and JoyJoy is a great example of that. This is a game that would never have made its return to the App Store without GameClub. And now a whole new generation of gamers can enjoy it.
Enjoy what, you ask? Twin-stick shooting at its very best. That's what.
You've got to admit that sounds amazing, right? The whole thing can be played with a controller or touch controls if that's your bag, too.
You can play JoyJoy now (opens in new tab), but you'll need the $4.99 per month GameClub (opens in new tab) subscription first. I'd heartily recommend it, too. There are some truly great games available.
