A lovely little trailer rolled through our inbox and popped up in our forums today and it seems very much worth sharing.

Both games are pixel art platformers with a heavy emphasis on weapons and crazy action in a similar vein as the popular Broforce, but that's pretty much where the similarities end.

But like… why not just bring Hot Guns to iOS? I'm not going to think about it too hard, though, and I'm just stoked to check out Prison Run and Gun when it launches towards the end of February for the intro price of 99¢ with no IAP.
