United Kingdom and United States– June 10th, 2009– Chillingo and US-based game developer h.grenade today announced the availability of Circuit Strike.One (CS.One) on the Apple App Store. CS.One is a fast-paced shooter in which you pilot of a virtual ship within an advanced computer network. The objective of the game is to wreak as much havoc on the system as possible, killing everything in sight while collecting ghost data from the remains to engage in Bullet. Slide on your sickest headphones and put aside some borrowed time because your circuits are about to get smoked.
“It is great to see this award winning shooter available in the Apple App Store. h.grenade has done a phenomenal job countering the onslaught of cute casual games by bringing to iPhone a retro style arcade action that hardcore gamers have been waiting for,” said Chris Byatte, co-founder and director of Chillingo.
With the high risk/reward gameplay and over the top audio/visual synchronized combat, CS.One shatters all expectations of mobile gaming. The game makes you think fast and react even faster if you are to unlock all 3 difficulty levels, all of the 30 achievements. And, as the game intensity changes, so does the pulse pounding soundtrack and the low-tech, retro 3D environment, making every replay unique.
Want to see how you rank against other players? In coming weeks h.grenade will launch its full featured CS.One leaderboard. There you will be able to check career stats and join the fight for global domination, share techniques, brag about collecting the difficult achievements, talk some smack with other players.
