Gorillaz - Escape to Plastic Beach
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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
‘You’ll 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"
About the game:
Escape to Plastic Beach is a 3D action game in which Murdoc floats and fights above Plastic Beach HQ on his Doom Glider to foil 2D’s repeated escape attempts whilst battling ghost pirate ships, and a mix of other hazards and obstacles.

What's New in Version 1.1
Reduced memory usage.
Reminds me of Pilot Wings
The N64 version moreso then the original, and I absolutely loved that game, so this is pure awesomeness for me, controls are responsive, gameplay is great, graphics are nice and clean All I would like to really see added is gamecanter or some other type of achievment, or score tracking (online features is always a +) and I gues alternate control methods for the people having problems with the tilt controls... wouldn't want them to miss out on the fun of this one, for the simple reason that they can't handle tilting very well.
All in all, awesome game and well worth the price of admission :P
good but not great
It's not a bad app but I've never been a fan of tilt control games. I sometimes have a difficult time controling Murdoc on his glider to the point where I get fustrated. The game isn't all that bad tough. It does have some amazing 3D graphics and some funny dialoque between the charecters. I just wish it had better controls or maybe even a d pad then perhaps I would have enjoyed it a little more. But then again if your into tilt control games and are a die hard fan of gorillaz then this is for you.
Fun and addicting!
You know at first i was debating on buying this app after reading the comments but I finally decided to. I was surprised to find out what a great game it was! It had gorillaz music from the plastic beach album and great graphics. The only thing I would change is the difficulty of the levels. GOOD JOB! 👍😄
