"Chucky" (aka Charles Lee Ray) of "Child's Play" instilled a healthy fear of dolls (and gingers) in most 80s children. And just like his character, the franchise isn't going away anytime soon.
Last seen in "Seed of Chucky" (2004), Charles Lee Ray will be returning to his Good Guy doll body in "Curse of Chucky", set to be released on DVD/Blu-Ray and VOD this September. In addition to a new movie, the folks at Slimstown Studios are releasing the first ever, officially licensed mobile game based off of the movies.
Currently in development, "Chucky: Slash & Dash," will be available on Apple (iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad) and Android devices. The game is said to be an endless-runner, where you play as Chucky himself.
According to the Slimstown description of the game:
Chucky renews his quest to seek revenge 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 enemies patrolling the factory using his classic knife or other more outlandish weapons in the arsenal. As they play, gamers will collect batteries that can be used to acquire 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.
What Chucky based game would be complete without murder weapon upgrades? None. In addition to Chucky's classic knife, Slash & Dash promises many bladed weapon upgrades, which will give the player more per kill experience points or increase the speed of the weapon. You will also be able to unlock some super sweet kill moves.
The game currently has no release date, but horror fans everywhere can be guaranteed a good time once it's released. And to answer the age old question from the man himself; this time Chucky, yes, we want to play.
