Back in August, we learned that Chucky, the psychotic doll from the horrible/fantastic Child's Play slasher movies, was getting his own mobile game. And, it was an endless runner no less. Well that game, Chucky's Slash & Dash [$0.99], is now available in the App Store. The story of Slash & Dash is that Chucky is running through the Good Guy Doll factory where he was made. Of course, as the story goes, "Good Guy" Chucky becomes inhabited with the soul of a serial killer and mayhem ensues. As you run through the factory you'll collect batteries which can be used to purchase upgrades and additional weapons. You'll also run across security guards in the factory which you can swipe to attack and kill in gory fashion.
I've only spent a few minutes with Chucky: Slash & Dash, but it's entertaining enough so far. It's pretty much your typical lane-based 3rd-person runner, and mechanically things feel a bit stiff. Changing lanes, jumping and sliding could all be made a bit tighter, but it works well enough. Chucky himself has a really cool cel-shaded look, and senselessly murdering security guards using the killer doll has already been worth the 99¢ download. It's the sort of thing that's so campy it's hilarious, in a twisted sort of way.
There's a special promotion right now that if you download Chucky: Slash & Dash you'll get an additional playable character, Chucky's bride Tiffany, for free, as well as a special golden knife. If you like the Chucky movies, aren't entirely sick of endless runners, and have a spare dollar laying around, Slash & Dash is worth checking out, and you can find more impressions from players in our forums.
