How many of you went to see the new Hunger Games movie this weekend? Well, this much awaited film drew in millions with its action packed adventure theme. Of course, to keep the excitement going, Lionsgate has created the Hunger Games - Girl on Fire universal iOS app. You will take on the role of none other than Katniss Everdeen, the remarkable heroine who is clever, quick and an amazing shot using her bow and arrow.

The story behind this action packed game is that Katniss dares to go out of her allowed area of District 12 on a food-finding mission. There is never a dull moment, as she runs into a formidable team of Tracker Jacker wasps sent by the cunning Capitol team. Get Katniss home safely using your deadly bow and arrow to to drop the nasty wasps. Obstacles galore on your travels are an expected event, but with patience and skill, you will complete your mission! Some features of this popular action movie game for iPhone and iPad are as follows:

o 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

o Compete for high scores against friends on GameCenter!

Hunger Games - Girl on Fire has many intriguing components to it. First of all, you will find the visuals of a slightly retro style. Though you will face challenges, the controls are easy to maneuver - just tap a target who will be felled using your bow and arrow. It's pretty neat to see Katniss running as the game becomes more engaged with activity. As a special bonus, you can take time out of your game to see additional menu features such as movie trailer, order tickets to the theater and grab a sneak peek of The Hunger Games: Adventures which is an imminent Facebook game.
If you've not seen the movie, nor the previews the last time you went to the theater, here's a bit from the developer on the story of the Hunger Games.
"Every year, the evil Capitol of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. As part of a government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts if she’s ever to return home to District 12."

COOL CONCLUSION: Hunger Games - Girl on Fire is an exciting representation of the adventures of the movie, and is also balanced with easily manageable controls, cool graphics and sounds to challenge your mind and reflexes.
