The Chillingo release train is a juggernaut that apparently cannot be stopped. This week, Chillingo has a pair of releases that compose a nice harmony of dissonance.
D.A.R.K.: This dual-stick shooter puts players in control of a member of the mysteriously-acronymed D.A.R.K. Squadron aboard the spaceship USS Storm Bringer. Strange things and things that should not be now lurk the corridors of the ship, and it's the player's job to shoot first, ask questions later. The game, developed by GameLab, is regularly priced $2.99 with a launch sale price of $0.99.
Powerslide Penguin: On the polar opposite side of things - the south pole, to be exact - comes this action-puzzle game developed by Cobra Mobile of iBomber and Storm in a Teacup fame. Players control Penn Gwynn (more like a punguin, am I right?), who must slide his way across 75 levels, collecting gems and money, avoiding dynamite, polar bears, and the most evil of all winter creatures: snowmen. No giant space aliens here, though, so the skittish don't have to fret while playing this one. The game is available for the iPhone/iPod touch for $0.99, and $1.99 for the iPad.
With Tiger Woods fresh off his 7 over par, first round performance at the J.P. McManus Invitational Pro-Am in Ireland, it's about time to start thinking about The Open Championship. St. Andrews, the Home of Golf and Cobra Mobile are releasing today the first golf game on the iPhone based on the famed St. Andrews golf course, where you can go out and relentlessly beat Tiger Woods score... over and over again.
The Old Course is complete with a "unique top down touch-and-swipe controls, beautiful graphics and addictive game-play" as well as a bluetooth multiplayer system for you to take on your friends. As you'll see from the screenshots, it's not exactly on the same "you are the player" level as Tiger Woods for the iPhone, but with some standout gameplay, it could be an entertaining experience.
The game went live today for 99 cents. Check out some more screenshots after the break.
