Trigger is a frantic, colorful, same-screen multiplayer game that adds the physics-based wackiness of Wrestle Jump and similar games to top-down shooter action.

A button in the corner of the screen lets players control their tiny tank. simultaneously rotating your vehicle and firing a projectile. This simple control scheme imbues the hectic game with a skillful element that priortizes positioning and timing, as you evade enemy shots and plan out your movements. Various power-ups appear through the arenas, granting you the abilities to release mines and let your projectiles ricochet. Getting hit isn't the end of your game though; instead you find yourself on foot, forced to race back to an vacant tank. The fun gameplay is complemented by s colorful charming art style that has you fighting among pencils, erasers, and other everyday items, much of which is interactive; pencils can break in half, balls roll around if pushed, and so on.

Trigger is available as a free download on iPhone and iPad.
