Always thought that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones had the coolest movie jobs ever? Despite the obvious hazards of helping tentacled aliens give birth, and other life threatening side effects of policing and regulating earths resident alien population, being an ‘agent’ has obvious perks. The clothes and shades certainly don’t hurt. And then there are all those gadgets. So. Damn. Cool.
And now if you have an Android device, you can get a taste of what it would be like to run your own MIB agency, thanks to a free game released by Gameloft. According to Cory Gunther of Android Community, “Honestly the controls aren’t the best and the feel and play reminds me a lot of The Sims, but the graphics are cool and hey, it’s free.”
The game is a freemium title so it’s free to play, but users can make in-app purchases for weapons and the further advance into the world of the Men in Black.
In the game, you get to create your own MIB agency where you will train agents and assign them to missions. You also get to play with those awesome MIB weapons like the the Neuralyzer and the Noisy Cricket. Agent J and K are not included.
Like in the MIB III movie however, there is some time travel involved. You will flit between 1969 and 2012 New York, fighting aliens across the city. The game can be played in one person mode, but has an element of social interactivity. You can invite your Facebook friends to play and can ask them for help during fights against particularly powerful aliens.
