Chillingo Release Peter Packer And Ewe Doodle

Posted by Jennifer Allen on June 20th, 2011

iOS game developer giant Chillingo has just released some more potential hits in the form of Peter Packer and Ewe Doodle, as well a large update for Storm in a Teacup.

Peter Packer comes in separate iPhone and iPad versions. The idea is simple yet addictive. Players must fling the packages into the corresponding parcel chutes as quickly as possible. Each package is a different shape so much like the wooden block games that toddlers play, you can't put a square peg/package in a round hole.

There's three different modes fo play to Peter Packer with Time Trial, Classic and the intriguingly titled Quest mode to entertain. Peter Packer looks set to be a great casual time waster.

It's priced at $0.99 for the iPhone variety or $1.99 for the iPad edition.

Check out the trailer below.

Ewe Doodle offers a cutesy title that belies a quite dark yet fun game. Players must keep the sheep from becoming mutton by dragging or pointing the sheep to safety. A series of power ups and different enemy types keep things feeling fresh throughout. Predictably with a name like that, Ewe Doodle looks a lot like other doodle games and it's a charm that works well.

Ewe Doodle is also priced at $0.99 and there's a charming trailer to check out below.

For fans of Storm in a Teacup (Jason enjoyed it), there's also been a large update. Besides the new icon for the app store (yes, really!), there's also the addition of ten new bonus levels that unlock after level 20 and offer new features such as Gravity Flip. There's also a new Super Tough Challenge mode that offers players the chance to play the original levels with no checkpoints and tougher enemies. Players can also now customize Storm with new outfits, hairstyles and colored trails.

The update is available now for existing owners and the app is priced at $0.99 for an universal version.

Chillingo Announces a New Slate of Upcoming Titles

Posted by Carter Dotson on March 9th, 2011

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.
