No, I'm not talking about Durin's Bane from The Lord of the Rings, nor Boxer from Street Fighter. Balrog is a simple side-scroller in which you pilot an underwater ship and help it navigate through forgotten cities and vast caves.

The further you get into the game, the more obstacles you'll face, from squeezing gaps to spiky sea plants. It works in a Badland-like way with simple, one-touch controls through a variety of 40 different levels, with more planned.

Grab the game on the App Store now for £1.99/$1.99.
