BILLABONG SURF TRIP by Chillingo

Set throughout the world’s best surfing destinations, the game uses Billabong’s top professional surfers Andy Irons, Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson and Tiago Pires as ambassadors for the game, who share helpful tips on how to rip and get tubed on waves for maximum performance.

“We’re proud to bring the first licensed surfing game to the App Store, delivering an immersive experience to surfing enthusiasts and newcomers alike,” explains Johnny Coghlan, Head of Publishing, Chillingo. “The adrenaline rush of paddling out and executing over 20 maneuver combinations including snaps and cut backs, along with catching air and negotiating through ground swells and barreling waves will really excite gamers seeking fast-paced fun at their fingertips.”

Billabong Surf Trip is slated to launch this Fall on the App Store.

Looks pretty good. I like the cell-shaded graphics style. Who are the developers?
The screenshots are iPad resolution. Hopefully the game will support retina display too.

Billabong Surf Trip Published by Chillingo

London, UK., – September 7, 2010 – Leading downloadable games publisher, Chillingo, today announced a licensing agreement with developer Biodroid to publish Billabong Surf Trip, an arcade-simulation surfing game for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Set throughout the world’s best surfing destinations, the game uses Billabong’s top professional surfers Andy Irons, Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson and Tiago Pires as ambassadors for the game, who share helpful tips on how to rip and get tubed on waves for maximum performance.

“We’re proud to bring the first licensed surfing game to the App Store, delivering an immersive experience to surfing enthusiasts and newcomers alike,” explains Johnny Coghlan, Head of Publishing, Chillingo. “The adrenaline rush of paddling out and executing over 20 maneuver combinations including snaps and cut backs, along with catching air and negotiating through ground swells and barreling waves will really excite gamers seeking fast-paced fun at their fingertips.”

“Biodroid developed a robust life-like game that explores Surf and Billabong heritage in a totally authentic way” said Diogo Horta e Costa of Biodroid. “We worked closely with Billabong and its Professional Surfers to ensure that the game mechanics mirrored what is experienced in reality,” states Ricardo Flores, of Biodroid. “Every detail from the types of heart-stopping waves found at various surfing locations to the range of maneuvers players can try is the same as what can actually be done in the sport.”

“Combining the simulation style game with an arcade feel is the ideal approach to introduce new folks to the sport as well as engage surfing fans,” said Scott Wallace, Billabong VP of Strategic Partnerships.

Billabong Surf Trip is slated to launch this Fall on the App Store.

Anymore news? I hope this game will support retina supply. Those cell-shaded graphics would look so good on retina display screens.
