Tom Aldahn, a graphic-designer-turned-game-developer, has announced his first game under the Rungo Games label, which is coming to mobile next month: Devil's Doom. This game has you controlling a plucky little devil, who is collecting feathers and bopping enemies on the head. Why? Because why not. If you found yourself in a situation where you had to bop enemies' heads and there's giant counter above your head, you'd be trying to make it go up as high as possible, too.

The enemies include other demons, and the Grim Reaper. And there is only one thing we say to Death: "I will bop you on the head and get 250 points." The game is chock-full of pixel art, and uses an interesting swipe-and-drag control scheme that eschews virtual buttons, and can be played one-handed. It perhaps needs to be tightened up a bit as movement is very fast and erratic, but the game is still a few weeks out and could be improved. Expect this one next month as a free game for both iOS and Android. Check out the forum thread for the game, as well!

    This looks so boring

    Looks great! I'm curious to see how the controls will work out!

    I've played the demo and the controls are coming along nicely. It's the perfect one handed game.
