Checkout a Gameplay Preview:
Players assume the role of bandleader Murdoc, as he goes to nigh Herculean lengths to get the "Plastic Beach" album recorded. It's hard enough to get anything done when your guitarist is a cyborg with a bullet hole in her head, and your vocalist keeps trying to escape. Add disgruntled pirates and a bizarre array of hazards and obstacles into the mix, and, well, it's enough to drive a man to drink.
Lots of drink.
Fortunately, Murdoc has his "Doom Glider", a hang glider equipped with twin machine guns, and a healthy disregard for the sanctity of human life, and he's willing to do whatever it takes to get this album made.
Designed especially for the tilt controls of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and featuring eight exciting levels of gun-toting, gliding actions in full 3D, as well as designs from band co-creator Jamie Hewlett, and music and voice-overs from the band themselves, "Escape From Plastic Beach" is a must-have app for any Gorillaz fan.
