[prMac.com] Pwllheli, United Kingdom - Pixel Knights Ltd. announce Halloween Havoc for iOS devices. Pixel Knights release their latest iOS game from their new studio based in Pwllheli, North Wales, UK. Following on from the success of their involvement in the iOS hit ZombieGP, this game gives everyone a chance to race through the skies as Rhiannon the witch. With Game Center support and worldwide leaderboards, this will keep you trying to beat your score for months to come.
Inspired by the classic side-scrolling "runner" style games popular on the app store, Halloween Havoc is easy to pick-up-and-play by all ages. Simply keep your finger on the screen and help Rhiannon avoid the obstacles, collect the pumpkin and fly her way home.
Available in both English and Welsh (language can be changed within the app), it shows our commitment to bringing Welsh gamers iOS offerings in our native language. There doesn't seem to be many opportunities for Welsh language gamers on the appstore and our aim is to bring Welsh speakers great gaming in our native language.
Carl Jones, director and lead developer at Pixel Knights said :
"I started writing games on a C64 at the young age of 10, mostly because I didn't have a tape player with it to load them :p And the magazines in those days were always full of great game listings to type in. Things progressed somewhat with the arrival of the Amiga, I used to spend days writing games on that platform using AMOS.
Unfortunately once I graduated from University and got a 'real' job, game programming became a distant memory. But recently I've been really captivated by iOS gaming and so decided it was time to re-kindle my passion for game development"
Halloween Havoc is the first of many games, already we are poised to release our first iPad game (again in Welsh & English), expect great things to emerge from this new studio.
