Do you have what it takes to defeat a never ending barrage of fearsome enemies, or will you die at the hands of these pixilated monsters? Traverse the arena killing everything as you go. Collect coins and chests to get awesome armor, shields, and swords. Intuitive controls paired with retro sounds and graphics make this game feel like a blast from the past!

8-Bit Beatdown is a game created by Zachary DeStefano, a high school student at Malvern Preparatory School.

Strangely Addictive

Wasn't sure what to expect, but I found this game strangle addictive! You're the little guy who's only option is to keep swinging your sword to keep the bad guys away. Aim, slide and jump! Sounds simple enough, but quickly becomes a fight for survival as the attackers keep coming! If you have ever wanted to know what it must feel like to be relentlessly pursued by zombies, than this is the game for you! Controls are easy, just remember to tilt the iPad/ iPhone in the direction you want to slide. As you kill the attackers you can earn coins, health and a variety of swords and shields to help you. Graphics are basic, but that's the point! Instant classic!
