BUTTONSiO is the antithesis of a typical mobile puzzle game. Born of frustration, it will break all the usual game design rules and captivate and confuse players. Also, kids just can’t put it down! They just LOVE pressing buttons! It’s like artificially intelligent bubble wrap.

Flintlock Boom is a VR shooter that goes back to the Old Days of Arcade. It's a fast-paced compilation of minigames where speed and accuracy matters. Inspired by games like WarioWare, you won’t be lost for a challenge.

With varying difficulties, you can test your skills on the Beginner courses and when you're ready, see if you can beat the impossible challenge Flintlock Boom has to offer. Be Warned though, we don't believe in an Easy mode. Even the Beginner courses will prove challenging. If you’re not quick, accurate and direct, you won’t stand a chance.
