    Disney/Pixar’s ‘Brave’ Gets Temple Run Mobile Game

    The original Temple Run by Imangi Studios has some impressive stats. The single player, action app game was released last August on iOS and Android earlier this year. It was among the Top 50 downloaded apps in December 2011 which led to it eventually being the number one Free App. The simple game is easy and addicting to play with just a swipe of the finger. The basic premise of the game is to run as far as you can avoiding a variety of obstacles placed in your way and the ever present demonic monkeys that are pursuing you. Now, Imangi has teamed up with an international giant of media: Disney. Temple Run has now been redone with a Disney touch by using the protagonist of the new Disney/Pixar film, Brave, as the character running through what is now lush, Scottish territory. Temple Run: Brave is, at it’s core, just

    LittleBigPlanet Gets a Little More…Incredible

    Your copy of LittleBigPlanet will be getting a little more “super” starting April 8. Well, as long as we’re talking about superheroes, anyway. (LBP was already quite super on its own, thanks.) The LittleBigPlanet costume kit for Disney/Pixar’s “The Incredibles” features nine costumes, including the stock “Incredibles” getup, and fashions to transform your Sackperson into allies Frozone and Edna Mode. A costume for nemesis Syndrome will also be available, as well as a “retro” Mr. Incredible. No capes allowed. Rounding out all this “Incredible” content is The Incredibles Level Kit, which gives you a Gallery Level to obtain all of the materials necessary for making your own Incredibles levels. The level kit includes locations from the film, such as the Parr family home and Nomanisan Island.

    “Toy Story 3” Brings Buzz and Woody to the Sandbox

    This week at New York’s Toy Fair, Disney Interactive Studios announced Toy Story 3: The Video Game. This entry in the series is the first to feature an open gameplay mode called Toy Box. Toy Box is literally a virtual box of toys that lets the player use their imagination to bring the toys to life (since that’s basically what the entire series is about). Designed to replicate the universal experience of playing with toys as a kid, Toy Box mode brings cowboys, space rangers, dinosaurs, and little green aliens together for brand-new adventures that only a kid (and Pixar) could imagine. Kids, families and fans will dive into Andy’s toy box with creativity driving their own stories and adventures. Toy Story 3: The Video Game also features a story mode that follows the Toy Story 3 film adventures in which Buzz, Woody and friends grapple with their uncertain future
