Endless runners and MMO city builders are two genres that have thrived on mobile, but they’ve never really been combined—until now. “Megastar” Kevin Hart teamed up with StandUp Digital to create a mobile strategy game called Gold Ambush with Kevin Hart and it’s fairly interesting. Players build their cities and fill them with traps. Then, their cities are raided by other players who have to dodge those traps in an endless runner format. Playable characters include Hart and his wife, daughter, and son, among others.
Hart had the following to say about the announcement.
“Me and my family’s beautiful faces are in a video game! Creating a game that my kids and I can enjoy was special, and I hope fans will enjoy playing the game with their families as much as I do with mine!”
CEO of developer Pinxter Digital Sergei Dubograev also provided a statement.
“Gold Ambush with Kevin Hart is an ambitious title that brings together the biggest comedy star on the planet and the best of mobile gaming. We are eager for Kevin’s fans and gamers worldwide to run in and get that gold!”
You can download Gold Ambush with Kevin Hart now via the App Store. An Android version is in development, but its release date has yet to be announced.
