From the kung fu mind of director John Woo comes an unlikely thing: an iOS game. As you’d expect, it’s a blood-soaked affair (splashed across the black-and-white art). Your job is to protect a doctor as you make your way through a sea of bad guys. Everyone loves escort missions in games, right?

With 18 levels from the movies and tons of stuff to collect and destroy, this game has a whole lot of potential.

Pyro Jump

One-tap games are often great on the touchscreen, and Pyro Jump looks nice and flashy. You control a flame that jumps from spinning wheel to spinning wheel. Time your jumps right to make your way to the princess at the end of each level. Just be careful not to burn her.

I’m a sucker for retro-style platformers, and that’s exactly what Trambo is. It doesn’t look as polished as favorites like Mos Speedrun or Mikey Hooks, but it may be worth checking out.
