DreamWorks Dash n Drop is a legendary sleigh riding game based on DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians. When there’s trouble at the North Pole and gifts get scattered everywhere, it’s time to embark on an epic adventure! Players will gather and deliver gifts to children everywhere as they dash through the evening sky in the Guardians’ magical sleigh. Along the way, they’ll collect elves, coins, power-ups and upgrades as they travel around the world, all while avoiding Pitch’s army of Nightmare enemies.
“We are thrilled to add this fun and addictive pick-up-and-play game based on Rise of the Guardians to our ever expanding app portfolio” said Chris Hewish, Head of Global Interactive for DreamWorks Animation. “The film-inspired gameplay is easy to jump into but has layers of challenge, making it perfect for kids and parents alike.”
