Leading casual game developer and publisher, Legacy Games, announced today that that they have signed a licensing agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. to develop a mobile game based on the character and stories of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The game is slated to launch in Q1-2013 on iOS and Android devices.
“A Tarzan mobile game instantly conjures up images of exciting adventures while swinging through the treetops of a lush jungle environment,” says Ariella Lehrer, CEO of Legacy Games. “Given the broad appeal and reach of mobile games, we are really excited to explore and deliver a gaming experience that lives up to the true essence of such a legendary character.”
Swing into action as the Lord of the Apes in a fast-paced, side-scrolling, platform adventure. Explore and conquer diverse locales from dense tropical jungles to intricate cityscapes as you swing, jump and fight for the safety and honour of all living things.
Tarzan Unleashed will aim to broaden the experience of typical side-scrolling action games by offering an extended range of vertical height to its levels as well as elements of fighting and shooting, giving players an opportunity to explore and use a wide variety of game play strategies. As Tarzan, players will run, jump, and swing through wild jungles, steep mountains, and dense metropolitan landscapes. Players will fight against an array of enemies from savage jungle creatures to ferocious dinosaurs and mythological monsters typical of the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novels.
