Miniclip.com http://www.miniclip.com today announced it is launching an imaginative 'Arthur and the Invisibles' game in advance of the highly anticipated launch of the movie in the UK on February 2.
The new rip-roaring game developed and placed by digital agency Grapevine, called "Loot Shoot" allows Arthur fans - in the land of the Invisibles - to help him collect the treasure so he can save the invisible world.
"We know kids are eagerly awaiting the wild adventures of ten-year-old Arthur and we wanted to give them an entertaining and interactive game to play in the run up to the release at the beginning of February," said Jamie Schwartz, Marketing Director at Momentum Pictures, the film's UK distributor.
"Movie studios are increasingly looking for new and unique ways to advertise beyond banner ads, and airing movie trailers. They want to allow fans to interact with the movie and the movie's characters before the film opens," said Rob Small, CEO, Miniclip. "Introducing a fun and interactive game is the best way to achieve that goal."
Miniclip has also recently launched original games for other popular movie launches including Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Superman Returns and Chicken Little.
