The physics-puzzler, along with perhaps the endless runner, are the two most prevalent genres of game inside the App Store. They are just everywhere. And Chillingo is not shy about either. One could argue that Chillingo's strategy is much like the thinking behind start-up Internet companies.
Bridgy Jones is a man who loves his dog Bonner. They travel through the countryside on a locomotive that's chugging along with a supply of crates. Although they're a cute pair, there is nothing easy going about this bridge building game, and that's a good thing. If you survive an initial bout of frustration, the pleasures this title offers will gradually win you over.
What do you get when you combine Shrek with The Smurfs? Timbergrotes. At least, that's what I think. Booting up Chillingo and Belmac Interactive's Incredible Jack, I was introduced to these strange creatures for the first time. In the game's story, you play as Jack, a Timbergrote hero that must set out to rescue his large family from a Demon Prince who's kidnapped everyone. Gotta love those platformer storylines!
This is a weird title. For one, I would not have thought that fish collecting would be a genre in mobile games. But it seems like the amazing success of Ridiculous Fishing is already starting to spawn a school of like-minded titles. Chillingo's Zombie Fish Tank would seem to be one of those games, only with, you know.. zombies. This wacky game is full of arcade-like action and plenty of aquatic critters to add to your growing collection.
I can be honest and tell you that I was not particularly all that excited about reviewing a game that featured three of the most played-out trends in gaming today: retro graphics, endless runners, and zombies. But Dead Ahead proves that proper execution can make all the difference. With everything presented in a tidy package, Dead Ahead manages to make old ideas seem fresh again, which is not a small feat considering the amount of rotting flesh and gore I had to deal with.
Chillingo and developer Games Faction have updated their addictive side-scrolling shooter Storm the Train with new content, including extra character attributes, weapons, and a bunch of new features. All aboard!
Madmonster, a combination between an endless runner and a platform game, delivers an excellent first impression. Tired of accelerating in one direction? Madmonster offers left and right action. Had enough of simply jumping for coins with a platformer? Try leaping high into the stratosphere to smash satellites and planes, that should do the trick. With such expanded and diverse game play, I thought I was in gaming heaven. Unfortunately, paradise didn't make room for this money grubbing monster.
What do you get when you toss Twisted Metal, Super Off Road, Smash TV, and a bunch of zombies into a meat grinder? The resulting video game ground beef would approximate something like R.I.P. Rally.
Put the pedal to the metal and drive along a landscape that builds itself right before your eyes. Playing Endless Road will make you feel like the world is changing itself just for you. Well, that's because it is! Nab a copy of Endless Road -- today's Free App of the Day!
If there's anything you can count on Chillingo doing consistently, it's getting a sequel to market for any game that catches on. And since Chillingo is owned by publishing behemoth Electronic Arts, they have the resources to do that pretty fast.
