Fire Fu

"Fire Fu is an intense and sinister arcade game, developed by UK-based indie development studio RetroFist.

The RetroFist team is led by industry veteran John Kearney, who co-founded VooFoo Studios before setting up RetroFist in 2015. As one of the original co-creators of Hustle Kings and the Pure game series, which are console titles renowned for their stunning HD visuals - players can look forward to a high quality art style as well as top notch gameplay from this experienced team."

Super Arc Light

"Super Arc Light is a stylish, arcade radial shooter. The game features a unique one button control system, delivering a fast-paced shoot-em-up gameplay experience. Super Arc Light is being developed by Glasgow based No Code studios; a team of accomplished, BAFTA award-winning developers, who've worked on high profile AAA games titles such as Alien: Isolation. They’ve combined their AAA games development experience and innovative game design to create original and exciting new IP for mobile."

Apestorm: Full Bananas

"Apestorm: Full Bananas is a 2D side-scrolling zeppelin bombing game set in a steampunk world and debut title from Finnish developers; Snowhound. Fugitive apes have commandeered a zeppelin and taken to the skies to seek out their revenge on mankind. Players must command their stolen aircraft, collect ship-enhancing power-ups and carefully drop bombs on factories, warehouses, and other man-made objects with pinpoint precision; avoiding the likes of trees, birds and fellow apes."
