I prefer a little better graphics but still old, like Double Dragon. The graphics look very old like Maniac Mansion.

This looks pretty good how much is this like River City Ransom?

Would have liked better graphics though...

Dude, I AM LOVING this indie-developer explosion! I'm guessing we have the open mobile marketplace to thank (in large part) for these kinds of titles :)

As a kid of the 80's who grew up obsessing over these kinds of games, I'm both excited and thankful that indie-devs are pushing these out, while implementing many of the more modern gaming conventions we've collectively grown to accept over the years.

This sounds like a game Mordecai and Rigby would play on Regular Show

A Virus Named Tom shout out!  Pretty fun little indie title, I was lucky enough to win a key from their Reddit giveaway, and it's a great little puzzle game.  Fist Puncher looks rather fun for what it is, a nice retro throwback to the Double Dragon era with it's slightly off kilter humor.

Played the demo and it was pretty fun (had a Scott Pilgrim vs the world the game vibe). If Adult Swim was able to get this indie game onto Steam without greenlight does this mean there's still some hope for Paranautical Activity to do that too?

Why didn't they add a dragon as a character?! Dragons can breathe fire, they can flyAND they are impervious to magic. Besides unicorns stink!!!!!

@Ernesto_basicThe indie explosion has little to do with the mobile market. You should thank PC gamers for supporting and respecting indie developers.

@g1rldraco7 Well they added a Werewolf and Adult Swim is their publisher (the same people who have Robot Unicorn Attack on their website).

Sure, PC gamers have shown a great deal of support for indi developers, but it's not coincidence that the frequency of these kinds of simple games -- games that are wholly appropriate for mobile devices -- have increased over time, commensurate with that of "smart phone" proliferation. Because of the ease of publication on either Google's or Apples Marketplace, we're seeing a lot of these kinds of games being made, which would otherwise be much more difficult to bring to a traditional platform, such as the Xbox or Playstation.
