The Act - (by Chillingo)

In the tradition of some of the world’s most classic animations comes The Act – a unique, film-quality game that lets you control 2D animated characters completely interactively.
Enter the magical world of Edgar and Sylvia – two unforgettable characters drawn together by fate and circumstance. Help Edgar - a well-meaning window washer – in his quest to rescue his brother, save his job, and romance the woman of his dreams!

Follow the characters through hilarious adventures, and across a visually-rich tapestry of scenes and scenarios. Experience the unique, adaptive musical score, and sound effects that respond directly to real-time gameplay.

With stunning visuals, a captivating storyline and simple controls, The Act is a tremendous deal of fun for anyone (6-65+ years), and an exciting new form of animated game.

  • Stunning, hand-drawn artwork and animations.
  • Hilarious storyline with a host of unforgettable moments.
  • Intuitive controls that are simple but allow for huge variety of actions.
  • Gameplay and design that's totally unique the App Store.
  • Beautiful musical score.

I can't help but to point this out. The game they released last week (Eager beaver) has the same name. They are both named Edgar..weird.

O-M-G! You're right!! Great catch!

Could that be a sign of some sort of government conspiracy? I demand a thorough investigation!

Great looking game. I'm curious to see if/how player actions impact the unfolding story.
