In THE HUNGER GAMES: GIRL ON FIRE, you'll play as KATNISS EVERDEEN, the young heroine from District 12, whose sharp instincts are matched only by her even sharper bow-and-arrow shot.

With just weeks to go before the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss ventures past the fence and into the woods beyond District 12 to hunt for food for her starving family... only to run right into a swarm of Capitol-created TRACKER JACKER wasps!

Help Katniss find her way back home, while taking down the tracker jackers with your bow and arrow but be careful once you get to District 12... The Capitol's hovercrafts may come looking for you!

May the odds be ever in your favor

***FEATURES***
Guide Katniss's escape with simple touch controls:
- TAP on Tracker Jackers to shoot them down
- SWIPE UP to leap up into the tree tops and avoid enemy fire
- SWIPE DOWN to leap back down to the ground

Compete for high scores against friends on GameCenter!

Presented by Lionsgate and created by an indie game dream-team including Adam Saltsman, Danny Baranowsky and Paul Veer!

***ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES***
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which Tributes must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If shes ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, with a screenplay by Gary Ross and Suzanne Collins and Billy Ray, and produced by Nina Jacobsons Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 26 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following. It has spent more than 160 consecutive weeks/more than three consecutive years to date on The NYT bestseller list since its publication in September 2008, and has also appeared consistently on USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists.

I imagine it's free to promote the movie... advertising gimmick, full fledged game, or both? Attack the Block had a similar free game by Creeps developer.

I agree. I hate "FREE" as nothing is truly free. Something tells me we're either going to get battery-burning ads in our faces or some form of consumable IAPs...
