While The Sealink drove us to the wall, Spiel Studios wants to have another go at the iPhone/iPod Touch platform. They definitely know that casual gaming is getting big with games like Angry Birds, so they have launched Parachute Xtreme! which they dub as a “Survival Comedy” genre.
You’re supposed to jump off from a high point and race towards the ground to win the “Best Base-jumper” award. Oh, it’s not as easy as it sounds though. You have some bad-ass villains who want to prevent you reaching your target (and in turn incur your wrath). Handling them will get tougher at each stage, but the objective is simple – destroy the goons and race on to reach the bottom!
The pictures show the game to have some fun visuals (unlike the Sealink), although I can’t really comment on its graphics and gameplay. Casual gaming would mean it should have some funny sound-effects and music. The game is priced at $0.99 (Rs. 45/- approx) and is available for download on the iTunes store. It’s compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, but the game requires iOS 4.1, so make sure you’ve updated your OS.
