"Hi, this is MacGyver. We all know how these things work, so when you hear the beep, go for it."

Oh the childhood memories! The heroes were clean shaved, scrawny fellows with an air of innocence around them. You know, like MacGyver and Face from the A-Team. MacGyver could fix anything with duct tape and his Swiss Army Knife. Fairplay Media decided this icon from the 80's deserved his own mobile video game.

Official press release:

"MacGyver is back! In a new, thrilling challenge game, MacGyver is tapped as the last hope when a computer virus rips through the top secret D.A.W.N Laboratories, trapping its scientists underground. Arriving on the scene, Mac realizes it’s a race against time before the laboratory runs out of air and so must make a potentially deadly descent into the complex. Mac works his way through the labyrinth of complex puzzles but, little does he know, that an even deadlier enemy awaits him in the darkness.

Developed with input from the creator of MacGyver, Lee David Zlotoff, Deadly Descent sees Mac return to his roots as a young problem solver in a modern environment “We wanted to create something that acknowledges the past and ‘stirs’ those memories and at the same time bring Mac and the experience into the present.”

Fairplay Media Production Director, Mark Mainey, enthuses “It’s exciting working with Lee [Zlotoff] and such a well known character in MacGyver. The possibilities are endless! Deadly Descent really sets the scene with Mac being called in by Jack as the last hope in a crisis and putting the player in a position to save the day.” Mainey continues “We wanted to open up the appeal of Deadly Descent but make sure that its 100% authentic MacGyver. It’s a tough game too; you’re going to have to really think about some of the puzzles!”

MacGyver: Deadly Descent will be released on all iOS and Android formats (including Amazon Kindle) around the globe on 21st of May as a premium title with a portion of proceeds going to support The MacGyver Foundation."

Who remembers this?!
