British design firm and developer ustwo recently launched the high-budget endless flyer game, Whale Trail, to critical acclaim in the iOS App Store, scoring an 8.5 Quality Index, and earning the iPhone/iPod touch Game of the Week on the App Store. The game has racked up over 75,000 downloads on the App Store, but the game needs about 300,000 downloads to break even on its budget of nearly $250,000 USD. In order to help expand the game’s reach, Whale Trail will soon be available on Android, according to Pocket Gamer, in order to help it reach the biggest market. ustwo already has several games and apps available on Android, including their most popular app MouthOff, so this is not a new platform for them. We’ll have more on this fun game’s arrival on Android soon. Until then, for more info on Whale Trail, read the review on 148Apps, this preview including quotes on the game’s philosophy from ustwo’s charismatic “CHIEF WONKA” mills, and listen to his appearance on The Portable Podcast.
