In Disney Tangled: The Video Game, players explore the world of the film and engage with its characters as they travel with Rapunzel and Flynn on an adventure-filled escapade jam-packed with challenges. As Rapunzel, players can use her hair to swing, climb, and rejuvenate. As Flynn, they can scale walls, engage in sword play, and use “Flynntuition,” to discover treasure along the way. There is also a creative play feature in Rapunzel’s Tower where players can paint murals and more.
Ensuring a family friendly experience, the Wii features multiple ways to play, including co-op, split screen and up to four players, all in captivating 3D environments. The DS version introduces “Tangled” to gamers on the go with a storybook 2D adventure that includes familiar locations from the movie and a variety of fun and intuitive puzzles and mini games.
Walt Disney Pictures presents Tangled, one of the most hilarious, hair-raising tales ever told. When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn’s curious captor, who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs. In theaters this holiday season in Disney Digital 3D, Tangled is a story of adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.
