McDonald’s Made A Grimace Game For Some Reason

To honor Grimace’s 52nd birthday, McDonald‘s has released a free-to-play Game Boy Color game that can also be played on your PC or mobile device.

The game is called Grimace’s Birthday (via Kotaku) and it was made by a Brooklyn-based indie studio, Krool Toys. The premise of the game is simple, too. You play as a purple blob named Grimace, and you’re preparing for his birthday. But the problem is he needs to get his friends Birdie, the Hamburglar, and The McNugget Buddies to his party before it ends.

As for the gameplay itself, it’s a 2D side-scroller. For the whole game, you’re riding a skateboard through a series of levels where you have to grind on top of rails, use launch pads, avoid Mctrash cans, and more, all while you collect purple milkshakes. There’s even a “Hard Mode” for those looking to challenge themselves.

But if you don’t want to play the story mode, you can either play “Score Attack,” where you have to rack up as many points as possible, or “Freeskate,” a mode that allows you to skate around carefree. And over all of that, an 8-bit version of the McDonald’s jingle will play in the background. McDonald’s is currently offering aGrimace mealto celebrate his birthday, complete with a purple shake.

Forza Motorsport

As a long-time racing enthusiast dating back to the first Gran Turismo, I’ve seen how the genre has evolved and, at points, stagnated. But from what I’ve seen so far, Forza Motorsport is fine-tuning the racing sim formula in smart ways by dialing in on two major areas: its career mode’s gameplay loop and its driver AI behavior.
