Chillingo has been one of the most prolific publishers over on iOS, lending their support to a variety of independently-developed titles. They also seem to be committed to releasing a new physics puzzler every single week on the App Store. However, their work on Android has been limited thus far to only a few selected titles. This changes starting now, as 7 titles have been announced by Chillingo for Android.
First up is Spider Jack, which was originally released earlier this year for iOS; this game has players controlling the eponymous spider as he tries to collect flies throughout levels. He can grapple to various points in the levels, and collect stars strewn throughout them. It’s similar to Cut the Rope in some ways, but requires a bit more in terms of reaction time. This game is available now.
Office Gamebox is next. This is a 3-in-1 pack, featuring Paper Sniper, where players try to launch paper balls into a wastebasket; Chair Race, where players ride their office chair throughout the hazards of the modern office; Finally there’s Pitch a Penguin where players control a penguin who’s trying to fly as far as possible after launching himself off of the roof of an office. That last one may be stretching the office theme a bit. This is available now from the Android Market.
There’s five other titles announced that will be coming in the future. Parking Mania will turn that most annoying of driving practices, parking, into an actual video game. Three physics puzzlers will be making their way to Android, too: Contre Jour, Roll in the Hole, and Little Lost Chick. Prepare to see stars…and try to collect them! Finally, a title that’s brooding and mysterious and not yet availble on iOS at all: My Vampire Boyfriend. This game will let players tease a virtual vampire boyfriend to turn them, possibly to even gain eternal life. Finally, a game based on my sexy and dangerous life! These games are all “coming soon” and in the case of the latter…not soon enough.
