Now here's a unique twist - a platformer where your aim is to get from top to bottom, in a new Aussie indie game called Freedom Fall.
You start atop a tower on death row, and the rule is that if you can escape the tower, you get a pardon. Justice in action.
Your captor is described by the developer as 'Princess Peach meets Shodan', and delights in presenting the hapless hero with many a trap to negotiate.
It's out on iOS and Android in mid-November, and has a very unique art style, looking and sounding slick with a great and slightly morbid sense of humour.
Check out the screenshot below or the brief but cool trailer here for more. The game is being developed by Perth-based Lisa Rye with assistance from Stirfire Studios.
