Reviews:

‘If you enjoy the Gorillaz universe (and who doesn't?), you'll get a snapshot of entertainment out of the game... it pushes forward the bands' weird narrative and adds yet another layer to their increasingly labyrinthine collection of mediums they dabble in.’
By Thorin Klosowski - blogs.westword.com

‘You’ll find yourself smack dab in the middle of hectic battles against ships, planes, and who knows what-else as you swoop, glide, and bank furiously around the visually pleasant 3D environments.’

‘…this game gets an A+ for imagination.  It might be strange imagination, but thought was obviously put into the app... If you are looking for a novel app to show off to your iPad friends, Gorillaz-Escape to Plastic Beach is a good choice"
