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.

“As much fun as the gameplay is, it’s the little details that kept me coming back for more. From the neon green and purple color palette, to the way enemies slowly pop out from the walls, to the way red pixelated blood covers the screen when you die."
