All Samsung-loving, bear-hating gamers need wait no longer, as FIST OF AWESOME is now available on the Samsung Apps marketplace, thanks to 100% Indie.

The hilarious scrolling beat ‘em up unashamedly pays homage to 1990’s games and has been praised for how well it plays on a touchscreen.

Developer Nicoll Hunt used Kickstarter to fund its creation and is delighted to bring it to a wider audience through Samsung’s marketplace with the indie dev-supporting initiative. “The 100% Indie team has been incredibly helpful throughout the process.” he says.

The 100% Indie initiative is a collaboration between Samsung and Chillingo, which aims to help populate the Samsung Apps marketplace with high quality games while nurturing and supporting indie developers of all sizes by helping them through the testing process and giving them marketing support, as well as a market-leading revenue share.

“The beauty of this game is its simplicity and the humour. Fist of Awesome has proved very popular, and rightly so, with players of all ages and is a great example of the quality of games 100% Indie is bringing to the Samsung marketplace,” states Ed Rumley, COO Chillingo.
