Doodle Army 2 : Mini Militia is marching through store charts

You are probably already playing Doodle Army 2, the latest dual stick shooter multiplayer mobile sensation. If not, here is why you really should.

Doodle Army 2: Mini Militia or DA2 is rising through the charts on both the Android and iOS application markets. At the time of writing, it was the 12th most trending game on Play Store and 15th in the free applications list in all categories on the App Store.

The game is a lovechild of teeworlds and Counter-Strike. There are small maps in which users have to navigate around using jetpack boots, pick up a range of weapons including a machine gun, a rail gun, a flamethrower and a shotgun. There are also health pick ups, and areas to run, camp and hide. The maps are not too large though. There are dual stick controls, one for movement and the other for shooting. Firing will need a little getting used to, there is no continuous fire, and you have to keep swiping at the right control to fire. Grenades and melee weapons are also available.

The star feature of the game is the seamless multiplayer. The game does this one thing very well, and this is what makes it so much fun. Users can just join the same game on Bluetooth or local Wi-Fi set up on any one device. This is just about the best game on both stores right now for groups of people to get together and play. Despite the cartoonish graphics, the rounds feel like rounds of Counter Strike. They are fast paced, and the map design is good enough that you are at no point too far away from the action, even if it is just one on one.


There are co-op modes and single player modes also available. For those with an appetite for competition, you can play against other players online. The online mode features cross-platform multiplayer, so iOS and Android users can play together. Doodle Army 2 is developed by Appsomiacs.
