Speaking earlier today founder Sean Murray, said; “Releasing Joe Danger for iPhone, iPod and iPad is one of the most important steps for us as a little indie studio. This has been a secret pet project of mine for quite a while, which I'm delighted to let the world play for the first time. It's such an amazing opportunity for us to be able to reach all those millions of beautiful iOS gamers.”

Hello Games also announced that the critically acclaimed and best-selling Joe Danger has been entirely rewritten for touch devices, to allow players to take Joe on a new adventure.

ABOUT HELLO GAMES

Hello Games was founded by a band of four friends who had climbed their way to the top of the pile at great developers like Criterion, Sumo, Kuju, EA and Climax. They decided to set forth on a brave journey of discovery and adventure to bring some new, funky coloured pixels to the world.

Joe Danger was their first title, a triple A game developed by the talented team of four for XBLA and PSN. Since then they have been joined by some more talented people from around the globe. Together they all will unleash the charm and creativity that has been stopping them from sleeping at night.
