1:58am: Official Gorillaz mobile (cellphone) game coming in April
The British Sushi sends the news that an official Gorillaz mobile phone / cellphone game is to be released in April 2006. The game is called "Gorillaz Entertainment System". It is composed of four easy-to-grasp, mini-games based on each of Gorillaz' band members; 2D, Noodle, Murdoc and Russel. Murdoc's game is based on deflecting balls as seen in the Rock The House video, Russel's game involves him eating falling food, 2D must punch a punchbag in his game, and Noodle must use kung fu moves to smash balloons. The game was designed by a mobile game developer Mr.GoodLiving in collaboration with Jamie Hewlett's company, Zombie Flesh Eaters.
