Posts Tagged The Adventures of Tintin – The Secret of the Unicorn

No doubt there will be plenty of couples out celebrating this Valentine’s Day. Lots of flowers, candy, romantic dinners and candlelight. No one really stops to think about the less glamorous side of the holiday; namely waiting in long lines to get into a restaurant for said romantic dinner, scrambling to find flowers and candy when at least half of the country is doing the same, and so on. Fortunately there’s a way for iOS users to lessen the irritation and have an easier time enjoying the moments that really matter. In this case, I’m referring to Gameloft’s Valentine’s Day sale.

Of course rescuing a space princess in Earthworm Jim, wreaking havoc in Gangstar Rio: City of Saints or running amok in Rayman 2: The Great Escape won’t substitute for making googly-eyes at each other from across the table. They will, however, make the wait for the table more bearable. And just in case finding “the right words” ends up being an issue, there’s also Gameloft’s Love Declaration Generator. Hey I’m just pointing out that it exists, I didn’t make the thing.

Snowy, Captain Haddock and Tintin. I doubt there’s a more universally recognized trio of adventurers in existence. Georges Rémi’s creations have attained almost legendary status since their original newspaper appearance in 1929, and while they may not possess Jones’ whip or Drake’s sarcasm they’ve still maintained a place in the hearts and minds of a vast portion of the population (200 million plus copies sold and counting). The soon-to-be-released CGI film is almost here, and it’s poised to rekindle the old flame for long time fans as well as welcome a new generation into the fold. If there were to be a video game made with the license, now would be the time for it.

Gameloft knows this, which is why we have them to thank for the recent release of The Adventures of Tintin – The Secret of the Unicorn – The Game. Players will take control of each member of the trio (as well as the legendary pirate, Sir Francis Haddock) as they make their way through adaptations of the film’s environments and attempt to find The Unicorn’s lost treasure. But don’t fret, this is a tried and true adventure game. There will be sneaking, flying, sword fights, camel races and more.

The interactive exploits of the world’s most well-known fictional reporter are ours for the having at a respectable $6.99. I’m sadly limited by the storage space on my older machine (846 MB? Yowza!), but that doesn’t mean anyone with a newer device or the die-hard fans can’t enjoy it on my behalf.
