According to its co-general managers, 2012 is the year when Chillingo will "put the gameplay back into freemium", as well as pushing on into Android.

Meanwhile, over Christmas, it's also sneaked out its first game for Windows Phone.

Developed by Russian outfit MaxNick, and released under Chillingo's Clickgamer label on iOS, Spider Jack is a Cut the Rope-esque puzzler, that didn't fare well when reviewed by Will in May.

Interestingly, it's been published on the Windows Phone Marketplace by Chillingo's parent company EA.

"We are excited to introduce Chillingo games to the Windows Phone 7, and see it as a new opportunity to bring players the games they want to play, on the devices they want to use," said Chris Byatte, co-general manager and co-founder of Chillingo.

"Spider Jack is already a fan-favorite title and we look forward to bringing even more popular Chillingo games to the Windows Phone Marketplace in the future," added Joe Wee, Chillingo's other co-general manager and co-founder.

Spider Jack is available now on Windows Phone Marketplace in the usual try-before-you-buy mode or for $2.99.
