Back To Square One by Umbrella Games

From the creators of Down the Mountain, Boom Dots & ZigZag Boom!

We are excited to announce one of our upcoming games:
Back To Square One



Back To Square One is a beautiful platform game with a single tap control scheme that's a perfect fit for mobile devices. Roll from tile to tile, while avoiding numerous obstacles and collecting coins. Sounds easy? Think again! You'll need to pay close attention, or you're back to square one!

Back To Square One features 20 awesome playable characters.

The game has been submitted to the App Store and we are aiming for a release this month. We will post the release date here as soon as we set it in stone.

The trailer shows a lot of deaths, you actually get good pretty quick but yet challenging in the long run. Check out this video of our Dev rocking it with Astro!

Wow! Nice game here! We like the way the main hero smashes on your screen! Waiting for a release date.
Is this game endless or there's a level split?

P.S. our favorite is Goof.
