App of the Day: Men in Black 3

Gameloft's tie-in game for Men in Black 3 isn't quite what you may expect, but good fun all the same.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

Mobile game movie tie-ins are becoming increasingly common; and, thankfully, they seem to be doing a lot better than console tie-in games. Men in Black 3 got a free game from Gameloft, and it's probably not quite what you were expecting. It seems to be a cross between damage control missions, where you stop aliens from messing things up, and resource building and management. Combat is turn-based shooting; meanwhile, you also have to build your base, supply yourself with weapons and other necessities and manage other agents. It's actually pretty fun, although the combat could probably have used a bit more dynamism.
