    Chillingo Brings DrawRace 2, Swing the Bat and Fruit Roll to the App Store

    Posted by Rob LeFebvre on September 5th, 2011

    This past week saw the release of three new Chillingo published titles, featuring a sequel to the popular line drawing/racing app Draw Race, a casual physics game with Swing the Bat, and an infinite runner, Fruit Roll. As always, gamers can be fairly sure that these apps have been well-produced and contain strong elements of gameplay along with high quality graphics and control systems.

    DrawRace 2
    RedLynx, the creator of DrawRace, brings sequel DrawRace 2 to the App Store. Draw lines to control the speed and angle of the driving path, and let the race begin! Draw Race 2 comes with 32 unique tracks, tons of cars and plenty of features to unlock. DrawRace 2 also includes a Friend Challenge mode to allow users to race against their friends online, a step up from the first installment, which only had Hot Seat multiplayer. Yippee!

    Swing the Bat
    Swing is a bat with a little problem: his wings are too small to let him fly. That problem is solved with a little help from gamers, who can swing him through tons of levels, avoid obstacles and unlock content as he goes in this humorous, casual physics game from developer Deadbug. Swing the Bat promises to keep the gaming fun and the gamer engaged.

    Fruit Roll
    Fruit Roll has gamers rolling their way through different environments, collecting stars and squashing enemies. The game boasts "the pick-up-and play accessibility of a casual game with all the competitive high-scoring of a hardcore one." From developer MoboTap, Fruit Roll brings another colorful family-friendly infinite runner to the App Store. Want to read even more about it? Check out our very own review of Fruit Roll HD here.

    As usual, be sure to watch the videos above and check out the screenshots below. Heck, click through and buy yourself a copy of one, two, or all three apps as your love for all things gaming or Chillingo guides your purchase hand.


    E3 Chillingo Hands-on: DrawRace 2

    Posted by Blake Grundman on June 16th, 2011
    iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

    Developer RedLynx is well known for their PC and Xbox LIVE Arcade hits Trials and Trials HD.  With the help of Chillingo, the independent studio is looking to follow up their 2009 freshmen release of DrawRace on iOS with a new sequel.  This isn't just any sequel though, it is a MASSIVE update to the game that was number one in the App Store in seventeen countries worldwide.

    For those that are unfamiliar with the original iOS game, the title revolved around using your finger to successfully draw your car's path around a race course twice.  The faster you drew, the faster the car would go, while as you also might assume, the slower your drew, the slower your vehicle drove.  Once you had finished drawing your laps the race would then commence with your car facing off against others on the track.  The problem with this game design was that it lacked the actual feedback and input during the actual race process.  This is the reason why in DrawRace 2 there are power boosts that can be used to blast your car far ahead of the competition, pending you use them wisely of course.

    As is also very evident, DrawRace 2 has seen a significant graphical overhaul featuring highly detailed cars and lushly populated environments for the game's thirty-two different tracks.  On top of this, I was able to demo the "couch-play" multiplayer mode and found it to be tremendously challenging, yet still entertaining.  Factoring in each of the title's one hundred and eighty different single player challenges, this is the kind of game that will keep players occupied for quite some time.

    Check out the trailer for the game below, as well as some early screenshots of what you can expect when the game goes live in the App Store later this July.
