Maximus - ARPG [Universal] - Modernized smooth controls and plenty of arcade homage

Hi everyone, just sharing what we've (@mooff.games) have been working on lately... for those who've played 'Toon Shooters', you'll know how much we love classics and bringing some of that feeling back to today's market.

Here's 'Maximus' (free) - hopefully doing proud some of the games that came before it (castle crashers, d&d shadows/ToD, golden axe, double dragon, renegade...even castlevania and quest for glory if anyone remembers that awesome pc game)

Our priority just like Toon Shooters was to find a better solution to the 'virtual joystick' and I think we've done just that. Development time has been longer than expected.. so much so that my colleague has had a kid and he can almost walk... Anyway the two of us enjoyed the hell out of making this and we hope you do too

Will post in a few weeks when it gets past approval, cheers~

Yeah it has some basic IAP but we never push players into a corner to buy something (like Toon Shooters didn't push people).

It also works on the iPad 2/3/4 & iPhone 5

Whew.
I was hoping I would not miss out on this grand opportunity to pretty much have Castle Crashers on iPad.

Whats the best brawler out there at the moment?

When I get a craving for beat em ups I cant find any good ones even though I paid hefty price for Final Fight, Golden Axe, Double Dragon, Streets of Rage. Maybe I shouldn't look for old ports because they all use bad controls.
