My free-to-play fantasy game Battlebow: Shoot the Demons is now available for download on the App Store.
Battlebow: Shoot the Demons features 4 character classes, easy one-finger controls, and a co-op mode which lets 2 players play on a single device. One of the 4 characters, the crossbowman, can be played for free. Over 140 items to loot and many quests give the game its RPG characteristics.
The game was developed using the Cocos-2D engine.

The Computerspielemuseum in Berlin opened its new permanent exhibition and Kickflip Quake is part of it! Last week I had a look myself, and despite all concerns, I didn’t feel any older than before. If you didn’t know, Quake1 is still being modded nowadays, and there are regular modding sessions happening over at Inside3D.
