Cheshire, UK-based mobile games publisher Chillingo today announced it will work with social game developer MetroGames to deliver a number of social games to Apple's iOS. MetroGames will make use of EA-owned Chillingo's publishing, distribution, and marketing expertise to release several games via the App Store, including a mobile version of its Facebook game Pixel Ranger. The company already has a couple of iPhone games released, including puzzler Plock which has been downloaded from the App Store more than 1.5 million times. However, Damian Harburger, founder and CEO of MetroGames, said that the company is looking to expand its presence in the App Store. "By combining our game development capabilities and creativity along with Chillingo’s impressive marketing and distribution strategies, we aim to duplicate our success on Facebook to the mobile category," he said. Joe Wee, co-general manager at Chillingo, noted that the publisher is "looking forward to working closely with MetroGames to bring Pixel Ranger and additional new titles to the App Store." Earlier this month, Chillingo revealed that it had surpassed 140 million iOS downloads since the App Store began, spread over all of its titles for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
