About Reptile-Games:

Reptile began with making the customizable fighting/beatlsquo;em up game Megabyte Punch in late 2011. The early versions of the game received a lot of praise, which, coupled with the fact that hardly any game developer was making games quite the way Reptile saw them resulted in the formation of the company. In 2012, alongside developing Megabyte Punch, Reptile also diverted into smaller projects. Like the upcoming rhythm game Beat Attack and the competitive Lethal League.
