History

Originally developed as our first foray into mobile games, Total Recoil was a big hit on iOS and Android with over 1 million downloads (that's more than the entire population of Fiji) and an average 4.7 stars from many thousands of user reviews. We then brought the game over to the excellent PlayStation Vita with it's dual analog sticks working perfectly with Total Recoil's twin stick action. It also featured in the Vita's Indie Game Mega Pack.
