Toronto, Canada – XMG Studio today is pleased to announce the release of Inspector Gadget’s MAD Dash 1.0, a new game for Apple’s iDevices based on the iconic 1980s character and TV series. Everyone’s favorite bumbling detective, Inspector Gadget, finds his way onto a new game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Developed by award-winning Canadian mobile game developers XMG Studio, and under license from CPLG Canada, the game is now available in Apple’s App Stores around the world.
In Inspector Gadget’s Mad Dash, you control the intrepid inspector as he dashes over roof-tops on his rocket skates, swings from cranes with his spring loaded arms, and flies through the air with the help of his umbrella hat in a race to save niece Penny from the clutches of the evil Dr. Claw. Along the way you must jump, dodge and avoid various obstacles, from benign banana peels so easy to slip on to high voltage power lines, dangerous pitfalls, and Dr. Claw’s insidious bombs and missiles.
Throughout the game, the player will collect G’s – special coins that allow you to unlock bonus content at the end of the game. Bonus content includes a soundboard of classic quotes from the original hit show, a first look at pages from Viper Comics’ upcoming Inspector Gadget comic book series, concept art from the game, and a scrambled image that reveals the face of the mysterious Dr. Claw once certain gameplay achievements have been met. The iPhone and iPad game, which also runs on Apples iPad device, integrates Apple’s Game Center, allowing you to share your scores with friends and see how you do on a global leader board, while unlocking special achievements and awards.
“We have been very careful to stay true to the art and sound styles of the original character and TV series while creating a game that is fun and addictive,” says Ray Sharma, Founder and CEO of XMG Studio. “The bonus content, especially the digital Comic Book from Viper Comics adds an entirely new level of entertainment to an already fun purchase.”
