App description: Matmi and the Gorillaz join forces to bring Escape From Plastic Beach, the latest Gorillaz game, to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.


If you enjoy the Gorillaz universe (and who doesn't?), you'll get a snapshot of entertainment out of the game... it pushes forward the bands' weird narrative and adds yet another layer to their increasingly labyrinthine collection of mediums they dabble in.
By Thorin Klosowski - blogs.westword.com

Youll find yourself smack dab in the middle of hectic battles against ships, planes, and who knows what-else as you swoop, glide, and bank furiously around the visually pleasant 3D environments.

this game gets an A+ for imagination. It might be strange imagination, but thought was obviously put into the app... If you are looking for a novel app to show off to your iPad friends,Gorillaz-Escape to Plastic Beach is a good choice"

Did somebody try the game or his browser counterpart?

Yeah, tried the free web version, it's a collection of Gorillaz starring mini-games - top-down driving, shooting gallery etc. Basic enough, but fun. More interested in hearing how the Glyder-esque 3d levels (seen in screenies) play, think they're iPhone exclusive.

Personally, I'm a huge Gorillaz fan, so I'm psyched for this to come out in the US. Never got a chance to play the online version so I'm happy it got ported over to the iPhone (these occasions are one of the many reasons I love this platform).

I'm a bit dissapointed this game isn't sporting the great 2D cartoony graphics this band is known for. This is a puzzling decision in my opinion.
