Matmi and the Gorillaz join forces to bring “Escape From Plastic Beach”, the latest Gorillaz game, to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.


‘Inspired by the “virtual band” Gorillaz and album Plastic Beach, Gorillaz - Escape to Plastic Beach... by Matmi New Media is essentially Glyder with guns, considerably shorter but more structured levels, and a slightly harder visual edge... crashed planes, rough-looking boats, and bombs that need to be dropped on target……fit the band’s style just fine.’

Jeremy Horwitz - Editor-in-Chief, iLounge.

‘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.’

About this 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.

Designed especially for the tilt controls of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and featuring eight exciting levels of gun-toting, gliding actions in full 3D, as well as designs from Jamie Hewlett, and music and voice-overs from the band themselves, “Escape From Plastic Beach” is a must-have app for any Gorillaz fan.

Good game though I think that they should add a multiplayer like dog fights or one person plays as 2D and the other plays as Murdoc and 2D has to survive till the time runs out and the game mode could be called cat and mouse

For an unreal band... An unreal game!


Any fan of the Gorillaz will instantly feel at home on Plastic Beach. Anyone unfamiliar with the Gorillaz might as well pass on by. The game is basically a port directly from the website version of the game. Some of the elements work much better on the iPad than on the computer based version. Fun, mindless and very familiar (given that its a mosh-up of a lot of different game styles). Regardless any other factor this game is well worth it's price for the sheer fact that it has the best sound track you could ever ask for on any game! A+

Fun but difficult

Echo the 1st

This game is pretty fun and easy to control, though, some of the levels are difficult.
