App description: You must have quick reflexes to position the firefighters so they can bounce the window-diving babies to safety. Fire Escapes starts off slowly but builds up to a torrent of babies and -- as you master the game -- Ninja babies!

Official selection in the digital showcase at the 2013 Boston Festival of Indie Games.

"The 8-bit style of the game is very well executed and will remind players of classic arcade games." - 148 Apps

Tap or tilt to move the firefighters one position to the left or right. Three positions, a building on fire and babies to bounce to safety. GenXers who lost their arcade innocence on Atari and early Nintendo will love the retro look and feel. Distinct bounce patterns for each baby add to the fun twitch gameplay.

"A Game & Watch update which looks, sounds & plays like a dream!" - The Games Shed

Arcade Mode gives you med-kits and moneybags to help you along and bowling balls to avoid. Plus, a special ending for completing all 15 levels!

"It's definitely worth grabbing for the reversing ninjas, dinky music, and splatting babies." - Handheld Remakes

Programming and sound by Brian Kokernak. Graphics by Carl Jagt. 100% indie.

Save the babies! Position Captain Quick and Steady Betty to bounce the babies to safety of Mom.



Classic retro gaming for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch featuring Game Center leaderboards, original music and chunky pixel action.

Tap or tilt to more the firemen one position to the left or right. Three positions, a building on fire and babies to bounce to safety. Easy to pick up, but can you beat your highscore before you put it down?

And why does she have so many babies?!

Developer here, and I am really proud if my first gaming effort for iOS. I teamed back up with Carl Jagt after colaborating on this for PalmOS 13 years ago. It has improved drastically since then.

It's an update of the classic Game & Watch Fire with some extras thrown in, and even more on the way.

Capsule Computers gave us a 9 out of 10 and said "Fire Escapes is truly a hidden treasure that everyone should buy and play."

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Thanks!

We've got a new version coming to the App Store in the next few days so we thought we'd make a new trailer:
