Almost two years after their successful partnership with Fox for Angry Birds Rio, Rovio is set to release a Free new game on March 14th based on the DreamWorks animated movie The Croods, which comes to theaters a week later on March 22nd. The game will launch globally on iOS and Android.
Set in the Croodeceous period, The Croods are a caveman family of hunter-gatherers. Based on the little information released so far, we know that it won’t be a “physics” game as usual. The gameplay looks sim-based, where you grow and nurture your world for survival. Check out the screenshots down below. We’ve also included some info from the press release.
