James Bond has faced some of the most diabolical villains ever imagined. With this app it's your turn to transform into the world's most feared villain and design a lair that even 007 can't infiltrate.
Vilify Me! features ten notorious Bond villains, including: Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Rosa Klebb, Jaws, and Elektra King; and, five classic lairs, including: Blofeld's volcano, Gustav Graves' Ice Palace, and Stromberg's Atlantis.
Using Villain Designer, take a photo of yourself and choose villainous clothing, physical attributes, and taunts to transform into a Bond villain. Then take the Lair Challenge: with $1 million, choose your lair location, security elements, and decor while trying to stay on budget. Your ultimate mission: prevent Bond from infiltrating your lair. How villainous are you? You'll find out in the end when Bond conducts an assessment of your lair design. Finally, you can e-mail or post your villain and lair to Facebook or Twitter (assuming those social networks are already on your iPad).
NOTE: On iPad Mini, we recommend restarting the device before creating a villain, due to the Mini's memory constraints.
Vilify Me! was created in conjunction with the Exquisitely Evil: 50 Years of Bond Villains exhibition at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC. In this special exhibit commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Bond films, the Museum has worked with EON Productions, the Bond film producers, to showcase over 100 artifacts from the films. Beginning with 1962's Dr. No to 2012's Skyfall, the exhibit explores how the evildoers and their plots have changed to reflect their times and how James Bond has influenced the public's perception of real espionage.

Unique and fun!
I wouldn't mind some more options, ESPECIALLY when making the villain. I had to take my glasses off and it was a tad hard to get it right. But very interesting please continue on it!
Great idea but too unstable
The whole thing represents a terrific idea that would support the museum's program quite nicely. And both sections--developing a villain and then a lair--work well, separately (especially
putting your face on a villain). But the two don't work together. Try switching from one to the other and the whole app crashes.
Needs more things
I think that this app is really great, but it needs more lairs, lair items, more character choices and able to upload photos from library to the villain customizer. Love this app. Really a big fan of 007.
