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.
