Best known for Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, Halfbrick has announced they will be bringing back the fan-favorite Monster Dash for iOS devices by the end of this month. Originally released in 2010, the game was removed in 2017 due to reasons of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Compliance. As a short recap, Monster Dash was a free game where users will run, shoot, and jump as Barry Steakfries to exterminate hordes of monsters around the world. Throughout the journey, users may also collect money to level-up, unlock various weapons and costumes, finish difficult missions, and play other modes for additional gameplay.
The game, however, will be returning through a partnership with game developer Krome Studios. “When we needed help with Ty the Tasmanian Tiger on GBA, Halfbrick delivered,” stated CEO Robert Walsh of Krome Studios. In accordance, Halfbrick had “tapped into Krome’s expertise of bringing nostalgic titles current. With Krome’s recent remaster of Ty the Tasmanian Tiger HD on Nintendo Switch, Wasteland Remastered, and The Bard’s Tale Trilogy on PC and Xbox, we couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with them again, “ stated CEO Shainiel Deo of Halfbrick. Through this partnership, the game will first have a soft-launch in Australia, Canada, Philippines, and Indonesia.
Halfbrick has also announced other classic titles, such as Age of Zombies and Fish Out Of Water, will be returning through the partnership in the next few months. Though there is still little to no information when these games will be released in the future, there is much to believe they will be the originals that all fans remembered when they owned their first mobile device.
