SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Glu Mobile Inc. (Nasdaq: GLUU), a leading global publisher of social games for smartphone and tablet devices, today announced the availability of Family Guy: Time Warped on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Family Guy: Time Warped continues Glu's long-standing collaboration with FOX Digital Entertainment and puts players in control of Stewie and Brian Griffin, fan-favorites of FOX's hit animated comedy Family Guy.
A malfunctioning time machine throws Stewie and Brian back in time, where they must evade the meddlesome Time Police while battling Roman Emperor Quagligula's thugs, Egyptian Pharaoh Joe Swanson's slaves and Old West Lois' goons. The boys' only weapons: their sharp wits, a double-barreled shotgun, one laser rifle, one baseball bat and a case of syrup of ipecac.
"We're excited to extend the Family Guy franchise with a laugh-out-loud adventure that puts the Family Guy gaming experience in a brand new setting," said Giancarlo Mori, chief creative officer at Glu. "With its original humor, outlandish storyline and well-known characters, Family Guy: Time Warped will appeal to fans and newcomers alike."
- Victory Is Mine! – Authentic sound bites and an outrageous story transport players into a true Family Guy adventure!
- Quahog's Finest – Playing as Stewie or Brian, meet Time-Warped versions of Peter, Lois, Chris, Quagmire, Joe Swanson, Mort Goldman, Consuela, Herbert, and yes, even Meg!
- Blast! – Bombs, lasers, shotguns, baseball bats, and syrup of ipecac – blast, zap, shoot, smack, and vomit your way to victory!
