With all of the stuff going around, sometimes the only thing you really need is some mindless fun for your gray matter. While the App Store is ready and willing to help with a significant chunk of the 200,000 apps, it isn’t hard to see that 90% of the casual games at the store are a complete waste of your time and money. And in these trying times, the only thing we have left to rely on is the publisher name…thankfully, Chillingo strikes again with its latest release – Monster Mayhem.
Update: if you require some help during your Dracula journey, be sure to visit Tetraedge’s official support forums right here on TMA!
I’m very excited to announce that the final part of Dracula: The Path Of The Dragon saga, developed by Tetraedge games and published by Chillingo, has been released on the App Store. The story of Father Arno and his quest to uncover the dark and bloody mysteries of Vladoviste is concluded with some unexpected twists at the end. TMA’s shigzeo reviewed Dracula part I back in late January 2010 and had this to say:
Dracula is more fun, more atmospheric, and more acutely entertaining than either Mysterious Island game is. It is streamlined, involving, and has great writing.
I myself consider it to be one of the most atmospheric and involving adventure games ever to be released on the iDevice, one with an exceptional storyline and great graphics. If you’re a fan of the genre, I highly recommend you grab the games now; at the very least, check out the official description after the gap.
Chillingo Ltd, Dracula: The Path Of The Dragon – Part 1 – $0.99
Chillingo Ltd, Dracula: The Path Of The Dragon – Part 2 – $1.99

Survival horror is one of the most underrepresented genres on the iDevice. Barring a couple of mediocre Resident Evil titles and the superb but short Fallen EP-1 there is really nothing to get the adrenaline flowing. Well, Chillingo decided to capitalise on this lack and released Vampire Origins, a game ambitiously dubbed “The most advanced survival horror to hit the app store”. Read on to find how “advanced” it really is.
Chillingo’s Vampire Origins, a game we first covered nearly a year ago, has finally been released for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Billed as an “advanced survival horror”, players will assume control of a vampire hunter through eye-catching 3D environments via touchscreen or dual-stick controls. The storyline is as follows:
After being trained by the ancient fathers known only as The Order, Vincent began his life as a vampire hunter. His deep hatred for the blood-sucking scourge grew exponentially after his bride was brutally murdered. Vincent’s anger grew and the destruction that lay in his wake brought him to the attention of Valafar, the evil Vampire leader.
Valafar, The highest of the Vampire Lords challenged Vincent to dual. Valafar was too strong and upon loosing the fight and being cast into the depths of the underworld. Only the memory of his fallen bride remained with Vincent, now a shadow of his former self. Driven by revenge, Vincent now returns to the mortal realm to bring war to the plague of vampires that had infested or destroyed all that was good in the world.
Priced at higher than usual $6.99 price point, Chillingo are hoping that Vampire Origins will be a big hit with fans of the genre. From what we’ve seen thus far, there’s a great chance that V.O will impress. Stay tuned for our review right here on TMA… in the mean time, video footage of the game awaits within.

Have you ever thought how great it would be to have super-powers? But, as they say, “with great power comes great responsibility”. So it’s time to get off your *** and go get those bad guys. With Chillingo’s recent release, The Hero, follow the daily life of the flying and punching hunk of a superhero. Goofy police chief and busty reporter included! Feel free to discuss this review of The Hero in our forums.
“It’s a lonely place”, says the mysterious hero whose fame, brought on by saving the world from tanks, aliens and zombies may have sunk his otherwise indefatigable spirits. Chillingo have kept tight-lipped as to their involvement in the creation of this superhuman, but the ever-vigilant TouchMyApps team are picking through the rubble of falling rumours now.
It appears that the ‘hero’ may be crazy, a larger than life character too caught up in his role, in the carnage he dealt. We will find out more later this month when Hero’s story is expected to debut at the App Store. Till then, hang tight with these images and interview.
More Hero info after the gap:
Guerilla Bob is one of the App Store’s most hyped and anticipated games. The last time I saw this much hype was just before Chillingo’s MiniGore came out. I know many of you may want to strangle me for saying this, but I think that blockheaded game got lucky. Will Guerilla Bob make me say the same thing? No, and here’s why…
We’ve got more apps to giveaway for this Day 2 of our Forum launch event, courtesy of Chillingo and Smule. Leading the way is The Quest Gold ($9.99), which not only is one of the best real RPGs on the App Store, but it also contains The Quest and all 3 expansion packs, making way for over 100 hours of gameplay. For dual stick shooter fans, there’s Minigore, one of the most popular in the genre for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Then there’s Smule’s, I Am T-Pain, a mighty fun app that will have you sounding like the man himself as you sing along to I’m On a Boat. Want to win these and more? Check out the complete details within!
The iPhone still mucks about in a rut of cross-pollinated adventure titles, but thankfully, its playground is expanding beautifully. Dracula: The Path Of The Dragon – Part 1 has me salivating for the next instalment; it is a fun, scary, and well-told adventure with the thick sort of atmosphere which can only be cut with a blood-stained reaping-scythe.
I’ve had a real addiction to racing games since before the holidays. I’ve probably picked up at least a half dozen different titles in the last few weeks. Whether your in a boat, car or plane, it’s all good. Most recently I was able to get my hands on Speed Forge Extreme, a space-themed racer from powerhouse developers Chillingo. Read on to see if life on Mars results in a win.
