New iPhone game compared to heartstring-tugging movie
2 June 2009 — 2:00 PM
A new game for the Apple iPhone 3G has been compared to an award-winning animated movie in its ability to warm the heart.
Pocket Gamer reports that some people in the past had suggested that computer animated characters could never truly have an emotional impact on audiences - a feat which last year's Pixar movie Wall-E easily achieved.
In iDroidsmania, the review states a similar, virtually-rendered robot takes the centre stage and challenges the player to negotiate puzzles and platforms in a bid to rescue his "wife and BabyBots".
"This mini odyssey offers enough content to justify a place on your home screen," the article explains, adding it "has managed to warm our hearts with its cold little metallic hands".
Available on the App Store, iDroidsMania is published by Active Life.
Wall-E won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year at the 2009 Academy Awards and Pixar's latest offering - Up - hits cinemas in October.
