Play 'Hunger Games: Girl On Fire' on your iOS device!

'Hunger Games: Girl On Fire', the movie tie-in game for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, is out now and it's FREE! Download the game now for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch at!

The game is quickly making its way up the charts; it is about to be in the Top 10 for the entire store and currently has a 4.5 star rating!

Check out the games trailer here:

I downloaded it late last night, and I have to say it's pretty fun. The game ain't easy to beat, but the idea of what to do is pretty intuitive. Avoid the Tracker Jackers by shooting them (tap) with your bow and arrow and by hopping up to the trees or dropping down to the forest floor (swipe). As you go further, the Tracker Jackers learn new tricks, and it becomes harder to get them. While playing, I found myself with some anxiety, probably because I know what tracker jackers are and I was scared of getting stung! I see from the description and the glimpse in the trailer that you'll eventually get to District 12 to battle hovercrafts, but sadly I haven't gotten there yet.

Here's the full description:

DEFEND KATNISS AGAINST THE CAPITOL! From the award-winning creators of indie game sensation CANABALT comes the *official* FREE teaser game for the movie event of the year — THE HUNGER GAMES. 

In THE HUNGER GAMES: GIRL ON FIRE, you'll play as KATNISS EVERDEEN, the young heroine from District 12, whose sharp instincts are matched only by her even sharper bow-and-arrow shot!

With just weeks to go before the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss ventures past the fence and into the woods beyond District 12 to hunt for food for her starving family... only to run right into a swarm of Capitol-created TRACKER JACKER wasps!

Help Katniss find her way back home, while taking down the tracker jackers with your trusty bow and arrow — but be careful once you get to District 12... The Capitol's hovercrafts may come looking for you!

May the odds be ever in your favor…

Guide Katniss's escape with simple touch controls:
- Tap on Tracker Jackers to shoot them down
- Swipe up to leap up into the tree tops and avoid enemy fire
- Swipe down to leap back down to the ground
