MONTPELLIER, France - May 23, 2013 - Independent developer The Game Bakers invite mobile gamers worldwide to join the fight in Combo Crew , a high-energy beat 'em up just released for iPhone / iPad and Android. Starting today, the game can be downloaded for $1.99 (USD) from the App Store and Google Play.
A brawler in the spirit of arcade-era fighting games like Street Fighter, Final Fight, and Streets of Rage, Combo Crew was designed especially for today's mobile gamers. The touch controls are smooth and intuitive, so your fingers do all the fighting with no virtual D-pad to get in the way. Quick arena-style levels and a tower level structure make Combo Crew perfect for gamers on the go, while tons of unlockables and an "endless" mode keep the crew coming back for more.
Trapped in an industrial tower by the maniacal Mr. Boss, the planet's top heroes must fight their way to freedom one level at a time. In solo mode you face off against swarms of bad guys to master each character's unique fighting style and special moves, unleash crazy combo streaks, and try for a high score to win the gold medal. In the co-op "Combo Crew mode" the fun kicks into high gear when friends team up to rescue and revive each other from KO. Best of all, this asynchronous multiplayer is cross-platform, so iOS and Android users can play together as part of the same crew.
"With Combo Crew, we wanted to recreate the fun of playing a brawler co-op with a friend on the sofa, but adapt this to mobile gaming. So the Draw Something-style asynchronous multiplayer really made sense," says Emeric Thoa, The Game Bakers' creative director. "And if your friends aren't around, no problem -- we've included ourselves on the friend list. So if you're in a pinch, you can request a rescue from The Game Bakers and one of the developers will help you out!"

About The Game Bakers
The Game Bakers is an indie video game studio based in sunny Montpellier, France. AAA developers in their former lives, Audrey Leprince and Emeric Thoa left their steady jobs at a major publisher so they could make and publish their creations on modern platforms.

The Game Bakers make games like they cook food: with a lot of love (and because they're French, a good bottle of wine). They focus on creative projects that combine traditional gaming values with the best of the mobile experience: the best traditional recipes with a modern flair.
