Lay A Beatdown With These Beat 'Em Ups

The beat 'em up is a combat genre staple allowing you to simply fight multiple enemies on screen. These games are traditionally 2D side scrolling challenges that trend towards the button masher idea. On iOS, there are new versions with subtle 3D offerings as well as gesture controls. The one consistency is delivering a beat down through waves of enemies.
