Searching for that next game to play on your mobile device, while on the road, in transit, or just needing to kill time? Consider your search over, compliments of independent game developer “Double Smith” as they have released their macabre and campy game Headless! worldwide. Headless! was released June 19, 2014 and is available for free download from Google Play and iOS Digital App stores.
Headless! aims to be the latest avian themed endless runner that will get everyone addicted in no time. Only this time, the birds aren’t angry, they’re decapitated. This hilarious game that conjures images of Foghorn Leghorn meets The Walking Dead will seize people’s attention with bloody “gore-geous” artwork, twisted and funny gameplay, as well as gratuitous buckets of blood.
The inspiration for the game comes from Miracle Mike, an infamous chicken that lived without a head for 18 months. The game challenges players to run as far as they possibly can as a headless chicken spurting cartoon blood, while tapping to fly and tilting to speed up. Snatching bags of blood extends your life and gets you ahead of the competition. Meanwhile your hand eye coordination and reflexes get a mean workout trying to avoid deadly blades, saws and other obstacles. The ability to unlock upgrades and gather power ups adds great depth to the game’s playability.
Double Smith is an independent game developer based in Austria, founded by Rheinhard and Gila Schmid. The industry veterans carry impressive credentials, having worked for Rockstar Games and Walt Disney in the past. The free download is sponsored entirely by in-game advertising.
