Casual gaming masters Chillingo are at it again and have unleashed three more titles to entice gamers to hand over their precious pennies in exchange for gaming delights. Released today comes three titles ranging from running away from giant snowballs to creating the ultimate taco and freeing the city of Grendale.

Snowball Run does exactly what the title suggests. Players must outrun the huge snowball that’s hurtling towards them! To do this, players must tap and swipe the screen to remove the many obstacles in their way. Miss one and the snowball gets even bigger and more likely to squash the unfortunate Yeti being controlled. The whole concept is centered around surviving as long as possible to achieve the best high score. Fortunately a series of power ups can be collected in order to survive for even longer against the tirade of rocks, trees and even other Yetis. It’s out now for the iPhone priced at a very reasonable $0.99.

Next up is Taco Master. One for the Mexican food fans like myself. A time management game – players must take orders and create tacos as fast as possible to earn more points. A wide variety of ingredients means there’s plenty to keep track of so fortunately multi touch support sets out to make things a little simpler. It might make players hungry but hopefully it’ll keep them entertained enough to not notice! It’s out for the iPhone priced $0.99.

There’s also the release of Emberwind, a title that focuses on freeing the city of Grendale from the evil CandleFinger. Some luscious graphics and action adventuring is to be expected here with some endearing nods to 16-bit platformers of old. This is a platformer that might be a bit challenging thanks to the boss battles but is also bound to enthrall. Even better, there are separate iPhone and iPad versions so iPad owners can benefit from even more attractive visuals. The iPhone version is priced at $0.99 while the HD iPad version is $1.99.

Chillingo is certainly a prolific publisher on the App Store, having published literally hundreds of apps on the App Store. This pattern of activity isn’t going to change in the next year, as Chillingo has announced a bunch of titles that they showed off this past week at GDC.

Painkiller Purgatory is an iOS version of the Painkiller franchise that graced PCs and the Xbox earlier in the millennium. Just like its console and PC bretheren, it’s a first person shooter, and should promise to be as action-packed as the previous entries in the series. Next up is Anomaly: Warzone Earth from 11 bit studios. This action/strategy game, described as a “reverse tower defense game” has you trying to penetrate the defenses of invading alien hordes. The game is coming not just to the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad, but will be releasing on PC and Mac as well, with a trailer available for those versions of the game:

Also coming up from the ranks of PC/Mac games to iOS is Emberwind, developed by TimeTrap, where you control a gnome named Kindle Elderwood, who has to save Grendale from CandleFinger and his gremlin hordes. That city name is one ‘e’ from being a future episode of Community. Quiz Climber from Relentless Software is a quiz game that has you competing against friends in online leaderboards, trying to answer more consecutive questions than they can. Storm in a Teacup from Cobra Mobile, developers of the iBomber series, is a platformer that features a vivid storybook art style, as seen from the game’s concept art blog.

Feed Me Oil from Holy Water Games is a physics based game that has you trying to get oil from a pipe to a predetermined spot. Color Bandits from Kiai Games is an action game that plays with color, as you try to restore color to the universe. Blobster from Divine Robot is a platformer that puts you in control of a blob that you control by flicking around. Finally, Carnage from Super Fly Studios is a 3D car driving game that has you trying to cause havoc, and dare we say carnage, on the highways by causing massive pileups. While no specific release dates are available yet, the games are promised to be releasing on the App Store in the coming weeks. Until then, check out a sampling of screens from all the upcoming games below.
