The BBC’s brand new Doctor Who game lets fans take a spin around all of space and time in the TARDIS.
Anyone who’s ever dreamt of helping The Doctor to outrun the Daleks, the Ice Warriors, the Cyberman or Missy (or The Master, for that matter!) should check out the new mobile game Time Vortex 360.
In this 360-degree game, you can control the TARDIS console to hurtle through the recesses of the future and the past all while trying to dodge attacks from classic Doctor Who alien species.
ll you have to do to become a virtual Time Lord is visit the BBC Taster platform and pair Time Vortex 360 with your own device — but beware that The Doctor’s enemies are harder to outrun the longer you play.
“The beauty of this game is that you can use your mobile phone to fly the TARDIS wherever you are. Digital innovation is at the very heart of Doctor Who – this 360 degree game allows people to navigate the TARDIS through time and space like never before,” BBC Digital Drama’s creative director Jo Pearce announced.
“We’ve seen a lot of innovation recently in the 360 and virtual reality space, but the majority has focused on experiential video-based experiences. This game, however, brings together the worlds of casual, arcade-style gaming and 360/VR to create a fun Doctor Who experience that people can easily pick up and play, wherever they are.”
If nothing else, Time Vortex 360 is a fun time-and-space waster until Doctor Who returns with its next all-new episode this weekend.
