thecroodsRovio and Dreamworks have teamed up to release a new caveman-centric iOS game The Croods, which is based on the upcoming animated Dreamworks movie of the same name.

The game, which focuses on taming wild creatures, creating inventions, and decorating a prehistoric village, stars a family of cavemen who are the last of a dying breed. Players are instructed to help The Croods survive by trapping animals, hunting and gathering, and coming up with wacky inventions.

Pre-hysterical Features:
-Trap & tame 10 evolutionarily mixed- up creatures! You’ve never seen anything like the Girelephant or Molarbear! Think you can catch them all?

-Create wacky inventions with Grug to open and explore new areas!

-Decorate your pre-historic world with the latest in caveman fashion accessories!

-Meet your favorite characters from the feature animation film from DreamWorks Animation!


The Croods is a universal app that can be downloaded for free from the App Store. [Direct Link]

The Croods animated movie is set to be released by Dreamworks on March 22.

Movie looks terrible. DLed this for my 9 year old. More importantly though. I think this marks Rovio's first Universal App. Thanks for not making have to DL an HD version of the exact same game!

I've seen the trailer just a few times, and I'm already sick of the movie.
Looks like a mashup of dumb-is-supposed-to-be-funny plus "caveman snark."

So this gets posted a week ago as "X is going to be released soon" and the consensus was "this is a giant advertisement for what looks to be a crappy game," so MR thought an "X got released" would make a good article? Really?

The pics and the sales pitch make it look like another NounVille. "Play" the "game" by spending real money and/or getting help from "friends".

Moving along . . .
