Giveaway: Win 1 of 5 iOS Copies of Hardcore Shooter ‘BACKFIRE’

By: Joel Rochon / GRYN SQYD

[UPDATE, 1/25/2018: The contest is closed and the winners have been drawn and sent their codes. Thank you everyone for participating!]

BACKFIRE is a new harcore shooter by sole developer Joel Rochon, aka GRYN SQYD, that released a few days ago. The twist is that your ship only shoots from the back, hence the name BACKFIRE. Clever, eh? It features stylish minimalistic artwork, a chill soundtrack, and tons of varied enemies. I’m still working on beating the first boss, but I came close, as you can see in the video below. It helps that there are upgrades to work towards, and the game is generous with the number of souls it gives you, which is the in-game currency. So even when you fail, it feels like you might be one more try, one more upgrade away from victory. And the game is fun enough that I don’t get angry when I die. Best of all, it’s a fairly-priced premium game with no ads or in-app purchases, even though it could have easily gone that route and felt like a real slog. Instead, you get a well-balanced game that feels polished all around and is a blast to play.

You can grab BACKFIRE right now for $2.99 and dive right in. Or you can try your luck and enter my giveaway for a chance to win one of five codes to download it for free!
