Sway and Minigore
When everyone thought that their favourite blockhead survivor, John Gore, would sustain himself a bit longer, the man expires. Alas, as Jim so aptly pointed out, there isn’t any beating Minigore – it is a game which like a slow-killing poison, will kill you no matter what you do. Well, Chillingo are grabbing another character the iPhone gaming arsenal, Lizzy, from Illusion Labs’ Sway, another highly rated platformer which makes excellent use of the iDevice controls.

In my opinion, there are some games that work really well on the iDevice. Puzzle games and strategy games seem to provide the right kind of balance of play and controls. Arcade style games also fall into this category, in many ways because of the simplicity inherent in most of these types of titles. Minigore is one of those games; simple and ultimately a whole lot of fun.
Chillingo (cue the sonorous angelic choir) are prepping the the App Store, their ranks of fans and the internet for another big hit. After their recent successes with CS.One and Knights Onrush, the publisher is moving to a dual-analogue style cartoon shooter. Minigore stars the survivor, John Gore in an quest to kill a slew of hairy creatures who want nothing less than to taste his flesh.
