The War of The Worlds: Minigame Adventure App Launched!

zGames, the mobile game division of Softeq Development Corporation, today announced the launch of Jeff Wayne's The War of The Worlds Minigame Adventure App for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. TWOTW: Minigame Adventure is available immediately for $4.99 from Apple's App Store. 

The original HG Wells story was first published as an episodic adventure for Pearsons magazine in 1897, so in homage we've created a 12-part episodic Minigame Adventure of The War of The Worlds. Each minigame is based on one of the scenes in Jeff Wayne's Musical Version, and features the music, sounds, and dialogue from the award-winning musical. There will be a minigame for each episode of the musical, 12 in all. Released in serialized fashion, just like the original story from H.G.Wells. The Prequel is available now -- a purchase today will get you all 12 minigames as they are released.

The story will advance as you complete each minigame. Start with the Prequel puzzle adventure quest, where you learn how the Martians surveyed Earth. Work your way through different game styles with each Episode, from puzzle to action to arcade games.

Survive the streets of London under attack! Pilot the Thunder Child to keep the Martian Fighting Machine's at bay while Carrie escapes! Hide from the Martians with the Parson@ Ply cards with the Artilleryman! And ultimately, defeat the Martians.

Start your Minigame Adventure today!
