Since EA bought Chillingo, the mobile games industry has been keenly awaiting what cool new games it will uncover. After all, Zen Bound, Angry Birds and Cut the Rope are a hard act to follow.

Now, Chillingo's announced a slate of what it's calling spring releases.

The most interesting-looking one is D.A.R.K.

From Polish developer GameLab, which previously released twin-stick shooter Pirate's Treasure with Chillingo, it's being marketed as sci-fi meets horror survival RPG.

Set aboard an abandoned spacecraft, you investigate the disappearance of the ship's crew, while fighting off highly intelligent enemies and exploring massive environments to collect upgradable weaponry and tons of hidden items.



Despite the best efforts of the trailer however, which seems rather more atmospheric than the first batch of screenshots, it's not entirely Dead Space. Expect it to be much more tactical.



Leaping the loop

Definitely not tactical is Dream Track Nation. Developed by PowPowGames, it's a 2D extreme physics racer - a bit like Monster Truck Nitro meets Line Rider. After all, as well as the official tracks, you can make and share your own crazy inventions with the in-game level designer.



Pinging around

Chillingo has always done well with physics puzzlers and it has two on its slate. Spoing from developer Games2be, is a wire physics game where you have to ping a cute character around a platform level collecting diamonds. It's looks like games such as Konami's Wire Way and Zeptolab's Parachute Ninja, but without the latter's parachute and with the ability to draw wires where you want to.



The other game is Spider Jack. From developer MaxNick, it looks a bit like Cut the Rope but you have to move a spider around various puzzle levels, using his web to drop and swing to collect flies.



Bringing up the vanguard

Chillingo has two other games ready to go. One is A-Steroids' tower defense meets hack'n'slasher Vampire Rush. It's already been released for Samsung's bada phones. Our reviewer Wayne certainly enjoyed it.

The final one is Swords & Soldiers. Ported by Two Tribes for iOS, the 2D sidescrolling real-time strategy game has previously been released on WiiWare, PSN and PC/Steam, and in general was very highly regarded.

DARK sounds good; reminds of the old Space Hulk RPG board game. Looking forward to seeing more on this.
