Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla remake tore its way through the competition this weekend, earning an impressive $93 million at the domestic box office and an additional $100 million overseas. Now, the King of the Kaiju has smashed his way onto Android devices in two new video games.
Released on May 6th, the first offering, Godzilla: Strike Zone, is a Warner Bros. International Entertainment title which allows players to reenact the film’s action sequences via three missions; “HALO Jump”, “Ground Rescue” and “Onto the Rooftops”. Gameplay consists of an interesting blend of elements, including endless runner and first person shooter.
Dissimilar to the prodigious titular character, Godzilla: Strike Zone clocks in at a rather small 84MB and a very short ten minute play time. The truncated mobile game experience is nothing new for Warner Bros, whom is also responsible for 300: Seize the Glory, a similarly micro-sized mobile game experience meant to whet the appetite of movie goers.
Rogue Play Inc. continues the procession of mobile monster mayhem with their May 16th release of Godzilla Smash3, a match-three puzzle title that takes cues from other popular titles in the genre, specifically, Marvel Puzzle Quest Dark Reign. Godzilla: Smash3 combines RPG elements with match-three gameplay and stunning 3D graphics to offer a more full sized gaming experience with character leveling, boss battles and 80 stages to play through.
Download Godzilla: Strike Zone or Godzilla Smash3 right now on Google Play. Both titles are being offered for free.
