TITLES FOR THE APPLE iPHONE AND iPOD TOUCH
Silent Hill and
DanceDanceRevolution Now Available on the Apple App Store
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
today announced the release of Silent Hill: The Escape and DanceDanceRevolution
S Lite, now available in North America for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Based on
top-selling franchises, these titles have been re-designed to take full
advantage of the iPhone’s capabilities, including the innovative Multi-Touch
Interface™ and accelerometer.
"Konami Mobile is pleased to deliver
some of our most beloved franchises to the iPhone while providing a range of
gameplay depth that casual and hardcore gamers alike are sure to appreciate,"
said Anthony Borquez, Vice President of Konami Mobile and Online. "Whether
players are looking for a nail-biting survival horror experience or some music
and rhythm, our lineup of iPhone titles promises to appeal to all consumers."
Silent Hill: The Escape:
Silent Hill: The Escape features original gameplay, detailed graphics and
spine-chilling sound effects created specifically for the iPhone. In this
first-person, 3D shooter survival horror game, players navigate through various
levels from an abandoned hospital to a cold subway with a dull flashlight while
fighting off monsters and faceless nurses. The battery of the flashlight slowly
dies throughout the game, limiting the player’s vision as they search for a key
to escape the monster-infested labyrinth. Players also carry a gun for
protection to ward off the trail of chasing monsters. Taking full advantage of
the iPhone’s capabilities, players must employ the tilt sensor and skillfully
tap the bullets to reload the revolver. Silent Hill: The Escape is available for
$7.99 from the Apple App Store.
DanceDanceRevolution S Lite
The worldwide sensation that started the dance game craze doesn’t miss a beat on
the iPhone. DanceDanceRevolution S Lite is the first installment in the popular
videogame franchise designed exclusively for the iPhone and iPod Touch. In this
addictive music rhythm game, players tap the arrows on the control pad as they
appear on the screen. Featuring 3D characters and simple controls,
DanceDanceRevolution S Lite provides an on-the-go DDR experience for iPhone
gamers of all ages. DanceDanceRevolution S Lite is available for free download
from the Apple App Store.
Silent Hill: The Escape and
DanceDanceRevolution S Lite are now available from the Apple App Store on iPhone
and iPod Touch.
