Mobile game publisher Fairplay Media is preparing for the launch of its first app game based on the American action hero, MacGyver.
MacGyver: Deadly Descent is scheduled for release on May 21st.
In the new game, MacGyver is the last hope to free scientists taken hostage in their own laboratories.
Players are challenged to help Mac make his way through a labyrinth of puzzles as he races against time to free the scientists, before the complex’s air runs out.
The game has been developed with the aid of MacGyver creator, Lee David Zlotoff.
“We wanted to create something that acknowledges the past and stirs those memories and at the same time, brings Mac and the experience in to the present,” said Zlotoff.
Fairplay Media production director, Mark Mainey, added: “It’s exciting working with Lee and such a well known character in MacGyver. The possibilities are endless.
“Deadly Descent really sets the scene with Mac being called in by Jack as the last hope in a crisis and putting the player in a position to save the day.
“We wanted to open up the appeal of Deadly Descent but make sure that it’s 100 per cent authentic MacGyver. It’s a tough game too; you’re going to have to really think about some of the puzzles.”
MacGyver: Deadly Descent will be released on all iOS and Android formats, with a portion of proceeds going to support The MacGyver Foundation.
