Game Preview: Hard Lines from Spilt Milk Studios

We’ve recently gotten our hands on a developer build of an upcoming iOS game: Hard Lines, from Spilt Milk Studios. Andrew Smith — the person behind the game — has previously won a BAFTA for his work, and we are pleased to report that this shows in Hard Lines. In this title, players must guide their  character — Lionel — through an arena which is inspired from the classic Nokia game, Snake.

One of the six gameplay modes is called Gauntlet, whereby players must outsmart the AI to gain as many kills of luminous cretins as possible. With some great pop culture references — including one reference to none other than Chuck Norris — Lionel is no Snake character, even though Hard Lines offers such a mode for you retro players. Check out the trailer for Hard Lines after the jump.

Hard Lines has been submitted to the App Store and should be available very soon. We’ll let you know when it arrives by giving you our full review. I am really enjoying this game and cannot wait to get competitive with friends. For now, enjoy the trailer and let us know what you think in the comments.
