Human Crasher

humancrasher

iTunes Description

It is the year X.E. 3943 and our planet, Xtane, has fallen into an energy crisis. In order to save our race, we have to leave our planet and search for new energy resources. Our nomadic time in space has started.

Luckily for us, before running out of energy, we found a new planet, BlueStar, where there is an excess of organisms, which can be decomposed into energy. Don’t waste anything.

As an elite pilot, you need to capture as many BlueStar organisms as possible, while watching out for missiles and aircraft. If not, returning to the mother planet will be nothing but a dream.

Meat Factory

meatfactory

iTunes Description

Meat factory harks back to the old days of the game and watch. Easy to pick up and play, but hard to score big. With cute visuals, simple controls and a retro music, Meat Factory is addictive and nostalgic.

Join Fred, the mild mannered meat packer, who has had enough of seeing cute animals turned into pies. It’s time for liberation!

Save as many animals as you can while frantically avoiding crushers, smashers, giant chainsaws and lasers. The more animals you save, the harder the meat factory will work to stop you. It starts off easy as pie, but soon you’ll be playing for high steaks.
