This year's Big Indie Pitch at ChinaJoy was a tough contest, but the emotive puzzler Abi managed to take home first prize.

That left Dungeon x Balls and Drive Ahead! to take second and third place respectively.

Read on to learn more about the runners up at The Big Indie Pitch at ChinaJoy 2017.

Dungeon x Balls

Dungeon x Balls is a smart combination of pinball, puzzler, and monster battler. You play as three sisters who control the powers of fire, ice, and earth who are heading deep into a dungeon seeking treasure.

Each stage in the game is a single room in this dungeon, and as you can expect they're each full of monsters.

So the girls turn into pinballs, and you fire them at the monsters to kill them. Meanwhile, there are traps to avoid, puzzles to solve, and hidden switches to press.

If you fancy giving your brain a workout, go and grab it on iOS or Android right now.
