Halfbrick follows up Fruit Ninja with Monster Dash chaser


Australian dev Halbrick Studios is running with the success of its iOS produce-slicing action game Fruit Ninja, releasing its latest game for the platform, Monster Dash, on the App Store late last night after introducing the world to it last week. Similar to Semi Secret Software's hit Canabalt, the title features similar "run for as long as possible while avoiding pits and walls" gameplay, with the addition of enemies and weapons.

As its name suggests, the game's bad guys are mummies, vampires, zombies and the like, and weapons range from a shotgun to the clever (and deadly) machinegun jetpack, which propels you skyward while raining bullets on baddies below. We've been having a lot of fun with this polished $0.99 release. Hit the App Store link below to see more.

August 19th, 2010 – Continuing from the ongoing success of their worldwide hit iPhone game Fruit Ninja, Halfbrick today is happy to release the next game in their exciting lineup – Monster Dash!

Monster Dash stars Barry Steakfries, the lovable yet badass hero who loves nothing more than running and shooting monsters. Players control the action with just two buttons – jump and shoot. Steakfries runs through multiple worlds fighting demons, vampires, mummies and more, with the player deftly leaping over chasms and moving down enemies with reckless abandon. Lock and load with the pump-action shotgun, earth-shattering Pacifier, electro-charged Mr. Zappy and the ultimate in death from above – the Machine Gun Jetpack!

High scores will be posted to global leaderboards, and Monster Dash will continuously reward the player with a massive array of combat statistics and gameplay awards - not to mention the awesome one-liners from Steakfries himself!

Monster Dash is available worldwide on the App Store right now for just US$0.99.

Do the Dash. Do the Monster Dash.
