Frequently Asked Questions

How much does BACKFIRE cost?

$3.99 CAD. But the game is yours, there are no ads and no in app purchases.

Who is BACKFIRE for?

I made BACKFIRE for gamers who are looking for a challenge, but aren't finding it on their phone or tablet. I wanted to make an action game people could play on the go, and I wanted players to feel  satisfied after clearing a difficult level.

Is BACKFIRE complete?

Yes. BACKFIRE is a complete experience. Playtesters average about 6 - 8 hours of playtime on their first run though. BACKFIRE is also highly replayable thanks to a wide variety of ship loadouts.

What are your future plans for BACKFIRE?

The sky's the limit really. Now that the systems are all in place I have ideas for new enemies, weapons, game modes, and more. I plan to support BACKFIRE for the next year at least.

“It’s a small blessing, but the weapons designed before the curse took hold are still implemented. They will be your tools against the demon– but to acquire them you must pay the price. How much are you willing to sacrifice? ”

"The glow of the screen is seductive, I've seen many lose themselves to it. If we have any hope of cleansing this curse, it lies with you. Godspeed."
