Test your endless running skills in Presidents Run, available now for iOS and Android

President's Run is a light-hearted endless runner that sees players choosing their favourite political candidates, past and present, and seeing how many votes they can gather.

This year then players will naturally be able to play as Joe Biden and Donald Trump but there are also other choices available too. It's not intended to be taken too seriously so players can also play as non-US political figures such as Vladimir Putin, Jacinda Ardern and Kim Jung Un. Beyond that, Zombie Washington and Frankenstein Lincoln are also potential candidates. The aim isn't to make a…

Blowie is an indie arcade shooter that’s just landed on the iOS and Google Play. In it, you play as a little angry yellow guy named Blowie, as he navigates around a top-down 2D space, blowing deadly balls at his enemies and dodging their fire.

The controls have been simplified to allow you to use one finger on your mobile device to run and shoot, while also making it hard to master due to the sheer difficulty of each stage. The art style is simple, but the o…
