REDWOOD SHORES, CA –
August 29, 2013 – Slimstown Studios
announced today its upcoming game
Chucky: Slash & Dash, an ‘endless runner’
currently in development for iPhone®, iPad®, iPod
touch® and Android™ devices. It is the result of an
agreement with Universal Partnerships & Licensing to develop
and publish the first officially licensed smartphone and tablet
game based on the Chucky movie franchise.
In the game, Chucky is stuck in a never-ending nightmare in
which he’s endlessly running through the factory that
produces Good Guys dolls. Players will control Chucky while
sprinting through the factory floor, the catwalks, the warehouse,
or even outside, and will need to avoid conveyor belts, forklifts,
acid pools, barrels and other obstacles. Chucky can also
eliminate security guards patrolling the factory using his classic
knife or other more outlandish weapons like a cleaver, screwdriver,
or hatchet. As they play, gamers will collect batteries that
can be used to purchase in-game items or power-ups, such as a
double battery bonus, a fast start, or extra lives that can extend
a run after dying.
