A Good Day to Die Hard opened in theaters yesterday, and pretty much absolutely nobody likes it. That doesn’t mean the iOS and Android game has to be bad, though. Based on the movie starring Bruce Willis, Fox Digital Entertainment’s Die Hard “… combines the best of the ‘endless runner’ and ‘first-person shooter’ genres into a thrilling, new format – the ‘endless shooter.’
Die Hard was developed by Goroid, creators of the endless runner TheEndApp, which has been a top 10 hit on both iOS and Android.
With Die Hard, the mission was to develop an app with the gameplay and attitude to match the groundbreaking nature of the Die Hard franchise, its longtime hero John McClane and new protagonist Jack McClane. In a twist on the endless runner genre, where the player runs from danger, Die Hard equips the player to face the action head on, running towards foes and confronting them from a first-person perspective.
Die Hard is aimed at game and movie fans alike, incorporating characters, locations and weapons from A Good Day to Die Hard. New missions and in-game extras will be made available to keep players coming back.
Die Hard is available now as a universal app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch for $0.99, with in-app purchases available.
