Lions Gate Films has released Hunger Games: Girl on Fire, a free iOS autoscrolling platformer created by an "indie dream team" of standout developers.
A predecessor to The Hunger Games film and novel series, Girl on Fire challenges players to shoot down Tracker Jackers and dodge enemy fire as lead character Katniss races back to her home, District 12. Adam Saltsman (Canabalt) served as lead developer for the project, which features art by Vlambeer's Paul Veer, programming by Doomlaser's Mark Johns and Kevin Coulton, and music from dB Soundworks' Danny Baranowsky.
Girl on Fire is available as a free universal app, and includes a selection of Game Center achievements.
