Arcade Racing And Educational Puzzling From Chillingo's Latest Releases

Posted by Jennifer Allen on September 9th, 2011

As certain as the fact it'll rain the moment I go on holiday, Chillingo will release new games on a Thursday and they'll be entertaining titles.

First up this week is that of Race Illegal: High Speed 3D, a racer that promises to offer an unparalleled amount of race modes and vehicle customization options. The career mode offers story driven action with everything from drifting, dodging, ramming and of course racing on offer. Players get the opportunity to gain cash for victories and then use that money to buy new upgrades to improve their ride immensely.

A whole range of different supercars are available to use within the five different race modes as well as the quick race option. In its effort to be a true arcade racing experience, special effects like motion blur, nitro boost and slow motion play an important role with attractive destruction visuals and authentic engine sound effects on offer too.

Best of all Race Illegal: High Speed 3D is only $0.99 at the moment for an Universal build app, particularly convenient for owners of both iPhones and iPads. Be quick though, it's on sale for a limited time eventually increasing in price to $2.99. Check out the gameplay trailer below.

Second up on the new release schedule is Gum Drop!, offering part memory test, part match three style puzzle fun. Players must quickly match corresponding words and images as the timer runs out. It's simple stuff but compelling too with increasingly larger combos possible to gain and thus high scores to compete against. Over 100 unique objects and words are on offer with 9 different languages available, potentially helping players learn new words in a fun way.

Gum Drop! is available now in separate iPhone and iPad varieties, priced at $0.99 and $1.99 respectively. The gameplay trailer is available below.
