Gorillaz - Escape to Plastic Beach: The Game (iPhone + iPad app)

Game for iPhone and iPad to promote the new Gorillaz album. Basically the cool characters always looked like game heroes, so no surprise there. The only thing I don't get is why we can't play with the music?
Why not use your multitrack and facilitate consumers to create remixes bases on the beats, basslines, chords and vocals!?

Why don't you use the brandessence of what you are? A cool innovative brand.

My associations with this band are merely graffiti, art, urban style... and not a hang-gliding guy that shoots on flying targets above the sea....?

An update on iPhone apps & games in two pictures

Ingame advertising: Base-x

The Dutch Royal Airforce has developed a game called Base-X and uses in-game advertising in Battlefield 2142 to promote this. In my opinion it would have been much more effective to have a Modification developed in BF2 or America's Army like we proposed together with Power Unlimited some time ago...

Designing simplicity / usability, hence why Apple Dr. BJ Fogg

Virgin Games - McDonald Land - 1992

And another classic - US only I think... McDonald Land...

Pepsi Invaders Advergame - The first advergame ever!

This is probably the first advergame ever... originally on Atari 2600 I believe.
Great mocking by Coca-Cola towards Pepsi. I wonder when Pepsi will strike back?

Call me if you want some great ideas! ;-)

Burger King Games

Burger King actually sold advergames for a little under 5 bucks in 2008 for Xbox... We are talking about games that contain ingame branding by Burger King... ! They were sold out.

Flower™ - Official Trailer

I haven't posted this before, because I am still arguing if this is a game, but Flower could at least be described as visual yoga....? For that reason it could easily contribute to objectives on personnel (staff) - to inspire and relax your employees during busy days at work. If you're running out of time because of too much work, play Flower for 10 to 15 minutes and your effectiveness will surely improve after playing.

Google Chrome Speed Tests

Still... speed should not be the USP... finding what I am looking for in Google is more what I like... instead of getting 2.000.000 hits on a word like 'game' and Need for Speed... just get me ONLY the information I'm looking for...
