"24" mobile game
Developed by Scottish mobile gaming company I-Playin just 15 weeks, the game is designed to provide people with a chance to experience the world of 24 via their handsets.
The mobile game is wrapped in the look and feel of 24. It includes the signature digital clock countdown and all the main actors lend their likeness to it.
Rather than create a something that lets players take on the role of Jack Bauer, the game puts you in charge of Jack, as well as of several other leading characters.
The aim is simply to complete everything as in as little time as possible and this technique is effectively in creating an atmosphere of tension.
