The Lost Reels is a remixed port of the original 2009 House of the Dead shooter and is set for release on iOS tonight. Broken into three “movies” or parts, the initial download offers the first movie, Papa’s Palace of Pain, and on playthrough will unlock the second movie, Ballistic Trauma. Naked Terror, the third part, must be purchased though. Each movie is made up of four levels and a boss battle.

According to this Edge report, Sega sold through 45,000 copies of House of the Dead: Overkill in the US last month.
The game launched February 10.
NPD analyst Anita Frazier said it had placed about 50th in the US chart for February.
The new will be encouraging for Sega, especially as Wii-core brother MadWorld appears to be flopping pretty hard: the Platinum game charted at an eye-watering 34 in the UK last week.

Guinness has claimed House of the Dead: Overkill contains the most uses of the word “fuck” in a game.
The Wii shooter uses it 189 times, “which equates to just over one per minute and three percent of all words spoken in the game,” according to a press release this morning.
“Parodying the profane excess of grindhouse cinema was Headstrong Games’ objective and I am flattered that this record acknowledges that we not only rose to that challenge, but entirely exceeded it,” said script-writer Jonathan Burroughs.
