Movie producers turn game developers to simulate reel action on your mobile
Come November and Mathew McConau-ghey will travel into space to ‘save the world’ in Christopher Nolan’s latest sci-fi epic, Interstellar. You can fly the Endurance (the space shuttle featuring in the movie), too, with Paramount’s just-released app—gathering data and completing missions (details: interstellar-movie.com). Closer home, Mumbai-based mobile games company, Nazara Technologies, has tied up with Fox Star Studios to develop games for Bang Bang and upcoming movies like Bombay Velvet. Meanwhile, here’s a look at other new apps you can download and play.
Kick: With the movie’s official app, you can fight villains as Salman Khan, test your skills in a high-speed bike race and help the needy by turning ‘Robin Hood’. Available for Android. Details: kickmoviegame.9game.com
Fukrey – Rooftop Runner: The game asks you to accumulate Rupex (strength), jump rooftops, avoid cops, and race against multiple runners. The farther you are able to run, the more the difficulty increases, with improved Parkour-style movements. With five characters, the game keeps you hooked with bonuses and other perks. For Android 2.3.3 and above. Details: facebook.com/FukreyOfficial
Singham Returns: This one lets you become a cop in Mumbai. Similar to the film’s OTT action sequences, players can jump obstacles, flip cars and use their belt as a whip—in five battle modes. For Android 2.3 and up. Details: reliancegames.com
Kochadaiiyaan: This is the only way you can turn into Rajnikanth! With a selection of four medieval environments to choose from, this one lets you shoot arrows, fight enemies and upgrade to more advanced levels as you protect the city of Kottaipattinam against an invading army. For Android 2.0.1 and above. Details: vroovy.com
