Guildford, England – June 27th 2011 – Hello Games, the bright UK indie start-up, today announced that everyone’s favorite stuntman Joe Danger will be blasting onto iOS this Fall and releases first screenshots to celebrate.

Speaking earlier today founder Sean Murray, said; “We’re incredibly excited to finally be able to show people Joe Danger for iPhone, iPod and iPad. This has been a secret pet project of mine for quite a while, which I'm delighted to let the world see 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.

Sean added “This is a very different Joe Danger experience. It's a completely new game, with entirely unique mechanics. This isn't a dumbed down version, it's stays true to the core arcade ideas of the original, with the same lovely aesthetics, solid framerate and tight controls. It's a console quality game in your hands".

From Hello Games, the bright young UK indie start-up, comes a brand new title set in the world of the multi-award winning "Joe Danger", a best-selling title on Playstation Network and XBox LIVE Arcade.

"Joe Danger Touch" is a title for iPhone and iPad that casts the player as the world's most determined stuntman - Joe Danger.

Using simple touch controls, Hello Games is bringing a console quality experience to iOS devices through beautiful 3D cartoon visuals.

Race against your rivals, out-thrill your friends and defy death as the player takes Joe across over 50 eye-poppingly gorgeous and eye-wateringly dangerous levels. Wear the cape of a stuntman and take Joe on the ride of his life in this brand new adventure.

Joe Danger on iOS! Finally, the console experience takes the leap to your mobile and tablet! Featuring a whole new adventure to become the master of disaster, with all new challenges, gameplay modes, and some awesome new playable characters to unlock.

Arcade Touch Controls! A unique gameplay experience! Swipe Joe to make him pop a wheelie, flick barriers out of the way, tap to jump, hold to crouch and waggle your finger to fight with sharks!

Battle your Friends! Full GameCenter integration means that you can take on your friends to compete in outrageous face-offs. Race faster to the finish line by scoring "Perfects", or master your motorbike, then take on the World with your high-scoring Tricks and Combos.

Physics with Cartoon Timing! “Joe Danger” uses advanced cartoon physics to create a world ripe with slapstick humor. Laugh in the face of Danger, but it laughs back when you crash, as you bounce from boulder to boulder, on fire, towards a pile of giant mousetraps.


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.
