Halfbrick, the Australian development studio behind the smash hit titles Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, along with Spry Fox, creators of the addictive iOS and Adobe Flash game Steambirds, today announced that the newest game in the Steambirds series — Steambirds: Survival — is now available for download on mobile iOS platforms from the App Store.

Set in a steampunk-styled war-torn Europe, Steambirds: Survival is a turn-based aerial combat game in which players take on the role of an elite Allied pilot tasked with clearing the skies of the endless waves of Axis enemies. The noble mission is to defend the skies and enable the UK citizens enough time to evacuate before the Axis Armada demolishes their homes.

“Steambirds: Survival has the addictive and strategic gameplay that has already made the franchise so successful and includes a ton of new aerial combat features,” said Phil Larsen, chief marketing officer for Halfbrick. “We’ve worked hand-in-hand with Spry Fox to expand the narrative, build up the strategic elements, add new power-ups, achievements and, of course, the much-loved ability to battle for the highest score with other players through OpenFeint and Game Center.”
