The number of iOS and Android ports has sharply risen on the Steam platform recently. Be it to your delight or chagrin, they are, seemingly, here to stay. In fact, more than ever, mobile phone games are being ported to every other platform possible. When we spotted Meltdown in the Early Access section on the Steam store we were impressed by its stylish cartoon appearance and rock-bottom price-tag. Then we noticed it was a port – shame..
Only, what we thought would be a quick cash-in port, was an entirely different beast altogether – this port was actually good! Could it be that the trend of lazy mobile to PC conversions is about to end? Have Phenomenon Games and Bulkypix ended the stigma attached to these games? A resounding “maybe” is the answer.
