Summer movie season is already underway, which means that you can expect product placement and tie-ins all over the place. Today's synergistic entry: Men In Black 3 For Android, produced by Gameloft. The game puts you in the role of an MiB agent, protecting the world from rogue alien presences.

 

The game allows players to tackle enemies one-on-one, as well as train agents, build out the facility, upgrade weapons, and travel through time. If only more games allowed you to bend the space time continuum.

The game is free and doesn't appear to have any in-app purchases. Presumably the game makes its money by slipping subtly into your subconscious by making you want to go see the movie, coming out this Friday, May 25th, in theaters everywhere.

Crap! These movie tie-ins are almost as powerful as Neuralzyers.

      I've got the same thing, my desire and prime are supported. But my hox isn't... 

      • C Schartmueller

        ya lol, I've an unbranded HTC Bravo (Desire) too, which is compatible too. Strange thing isn't it?^^ But yeah, I wonder that it's compatible to the Prime, as usually Gameloft games aren't.

    Couldn't even get Will Smith's voice for the intro?

       Not a big deal. Now, if this game was based on Unity and had the look of Shadowgun, it would be worth to be disappointed. Or are you willing to get a freemium gameboyAdvanced-based mini game with in-app purchase? (InApp = gamer's curse). Too bad they chose gameloft to make MIB3 :(

    My favorite phrase:
    "This app is incompatible with your Asus Transformer TF101."

    Works on my Acer Iconia Tab A500 (thankfully this tablet is compatible with almost all apps), requires a 70mb download, will try it out fully later. Reading the comments in the play store it seems to want you to pester your facebook friends like Farmville.

    This app is not free... it is freemium. It has in-app purchases...got to T-Pulse or Credits and check it for your self.

    That game looks so weird in the video.  The first half makes it look like a higher frame-rate version of an old Nintendo game (maybe SNES), and then it breaks into a very low-polygon count 3rd-person shooter for a few quick seconds at the end.

    Not compatible with a galaxy s2 WTF? Interesting idea to make it not compatible with one of the most popular andriod phones

    • Andrew
