Pure fight! No virtual D-pad. How come mobile beat ‘em ups are never as much fun as the old days at the arcade? It’s because virtual D-pads suck. But Combo Crew’s responsive controls are fully designed for touch: one-finger swipe to punch and kick, tap to counter attack, and two-finger swipe for special combo moves.
It’s the first beat’em up for mobile to have touch controls and asynchronous multiplayer.
Compete for the best combo streak and come to rescue your friend when he is KO!
The game will release this Spring on iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets, and players will be able to play together regardless of the device they are using.

Media Alert: Combo Crew kicks ass on iOS and Android in May (plus new gameplay video)
Coming in May to an iPhone, iPad, or Android device near you: Combo Crew, a blast-from-the-past fighting game that brings the arcade action of the 80s and 90s into the new millennium. Combo Crew is the latest endeavor from The Game Bakers, the studio that made SQUIDS (a tactical RPG with more than 1M downloads worldwide).
This new gameplay video shows Combo Crew’s frenzied fighters in action: http://youtu.be/kKgIQvZuGjM
Key features include:
- No virtual D-pad. Pure fight! How come mobile beat ’em ups are never as much fun as the old days at the arcade? It’s because virtual D-pads suck. But Combo Crew’s responsive controls are fully designed for touch: one-finger swipe to punch and kick, tap to counter attack, and two-finger swipe for special combo moves. In Combo Crew, your fingers do the fighting—because real brawlers don’t need buttons.
- Asynchronous co-op on any device. Combo Crew also has a solo mode, but the game’s at its best when played with friends. Compete for high scores, rescue each other from K.O., and reach the top of the tower with the help of your crew—no matter what device you’re using. For the first time ever, iOS and Android gamers can brawl together in harmony.
- Old school fighting for today’s mobile crowd. Inspired by classics like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, and Street Fighter, Combo Crew pulls traditional beat ’em ups into the 21st century with an arena structure ideal for quick play sessions, multiple game modes (including single-player, co-op, and “endless”), and plenty of power-ups and bonus moves to unlock.
