trockr's comments:
Hi, I'm Todd Perkins, mostly known for being a Lynda.com instructor. I'm also a game developer, and this is my team's latest creation, Karate with Heads. It initially started out as a tribute to the NES classic Kung Fu, but the final version of the game mostly just brings Kung Fu to mind rather than feeling like a clone. Here are some of the game's features:

- Finely tuned NES controller style touch controls (I shot for a League of Evil type feel)
- Hundreds of unlockable characters, some with special powers
- Satisfying beat 'em up gameplay
- Free to play, and all in-app purchases are optional to speed up character unlocks, which are cosmetic anyway so it's not pay to win

Get it here, and if you write a review and mention you saw this on Touch Arcade it'll make me happy- https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/karate-heads-retro-kung-fu/id833857519?ls=1&mt=8.
