As if there was another example to prove how much of a monster mobile gaming is, Outfit 7—the team behind the wildly successful app Talking Tom—has announced Talking Tom Gold Run. The game features Tom and his pals attempting to recover stolen bars of gold in fast-paced running and jumping action. As a prize for not getting knocked senseless by obstacles, players are able to build dream homes for Tom and his buddies. So yes, this isn’t just an addition to the already addictive run genre, there’s a story line as well. I’d expect that from a franchise that’s nearing the 5 billion download mark.
“Through the limited release test, we saw how receptive gamers were to the unique combination of a runner and builder style of gameplay,” said Samo Login, founder and CEO of Outfit7. “With so many different elements used within this game, several player emotions are evoked, including courage, independence, self-realization and motivation.”
Talking Tom Gold Run is available now for download for free for Android, iOS, Windows and Amazon. You’re covered no matter which mobile phone you’ve got (unless you’re still using a Palm Pilot). Check out the trailer and screenshots below!
