You must have quick reflexes to position the firefighters so they can bounce the window-diving babies to safety. Fire Escapes starts off slowly but builds up to a torrent of babies and -- as you master the game -- Ninja babies!

Official selection in the digital showcase at the 2013 Boston Festival of Indie Games.

"The 8-bit style of the game is very well executed and will remind players of classic arcade games." - 148 Apps

Tap or tilt to move the firefighters one position to the left or right. Three positions, a building on fire and babies to bounce to safety. GenXers who lost their arcade innocence on Atari and early Nintendo will love the retro look and feel. Distinct bounce patterns for each baby add to the fun twitch gameplay.

"A Game & Watch update which looks, sounds & plays like a dream!" - The Games Shed

Arcade Mode gives you med-kits and moneybags to help you along and bowling balls to avoid. Plus, a special ending for completing all 15 levels!

"It's definitely worth grabbing for the reversing ninjas, dinky music, and splatting babies." - Handheld Remakes

Programming and sound by Brian Kokernak. Graphics by Carl Jagt. 100% indie.

I love it!!! I'm a fan of ANYTHING pixel being 28 and growing up with NES and SNES. The graphics are SUPERB!! The gameplay can become a tab monotonous, however, considering the talent the programmer and graphic artist (pixel artist) have they could join forces once again and make a monumental best seller.

Fond memories

Brother received this game as a handheld years ago -- Christmas gift from Radio Shack.

We continued the tradition by gifting this game to him this Christmas. Since then purchases by several family members. We have all had a blast.
